Why Simple Accounting Software Beats Free Accounting Software
Here at KashFlow we understand the main priority for your business is growth. That’s why we constantly strive to make simple accounting software that frees up time for you to work on the things you do best.
Unless you’re a bookkeeper or accountant, chances are these essential aspects of managing your business are not your strong suit, and are definitely not the things you want to spend lots of time on.
Terms like accruals, year-end process and depreciation probably have you running a mile, which may be the reason why most free accounting software chooses to overlook these terms, resulting in software that looks and feels like nothing more than a glorified Excel spreadsheet.
Simple accounting software, not basic
We believe at KashFlow that accounting software should be simple, but not basic. That means we don’t shy away from the complicated ‘accounting stuff’ and instead use language that most people understand. So what are the problems with most free software packages? For starters, here’s three:
- Too many chefs spoil the broth
Most free packages are open source or community edited. When things can go pear-shaped (as they often do) it’s tricky to lay your finger on who done what.
- Support is lacking or non-existent
Free packages usually come with a simple getting started guide but after that you’re left to fly solo. When running into a problem you will find yourself waiting a while on a response, if a response comes at all.
- You will eventually pay for the software
Let’s be frank. Companies who offer free packages ultimately in some way or another are looking for ways to make money. They’ll do this by offering a limited number of invoices or by disabling certain features, forcing you into going for the upgraded paid version. Don’t be suckered into using an inferior product that falls short of what’s required for your business.
KashFlow is simple accounting software that works how you’d expect it to work, without using confusing jargon or complicated processes. You can manage your business finances from anywhere and create professional, branded quotes and invoices in minutes.
