The software is great and does what we need for our day-to-day accounting, but when it comes to our in-house IT, we seem to have issues with our internal server complementing our ability to work outside of the office on the software. Data has been lost, work time wasted twice.

Kashoo
Kashoo is well suited if you have the time to learn the system. Because after that, it becomes a breeze. But if you're new to this stuff and don't have an accountant, you may be struggling to understand exactly what you need to do or where you need to click.

Kashoo
  • Invoicing - I can create an invoice and email it directly from within Kashoo. When a payment is received, it is simple to enter the transaction and mark it as paid.
  • Projects - I can assign a Project to a transaction. This way I can get a detailed picture of a specific project on which we are working. I can run a P&L report of just that project or the whole company.
  • Reconcile - Reconciling is a snap when you connect the account to the bank online.
  • If you are doing bookkeeping for more than one company, Kashoo has support for that. You can easily switch between companies as needed.

Kashoo
  • The UI is not nice at all - even with a UI refresh, it still didn't look that great
  • The UX is rough as well - it's not as easy to use until you get used to it - high learning curve

Kashoo is by far the most intuitive and easy to use accounting/bookkeeping solution I've tried, and after using it for several years I'm pleased that it delivers a consistent experience. No surprises, it just works. I don't want to spend any more time than I have to attend to bookkeeping, and Kashoo allows me to do just that.

They were not helpful in resolving my issue on the change to my lifetime deal, and I am not happy with their support. They didn't care at all

Because we work with a CPA as our Finance Manager, it is best to have the ability to track our workflow and progress, as well as our own Due Date Tracking in order to remind him. They use QuickBooks to document their business, but using Access allows us to easily manage our number to send to them for general use.

No yearly license fees with Kashoo lifetime plan and it includes a mobile app and mobile integration with the desktop version. I can do everything I need to do in Kashoo so there is no need for bloated old Quickbooks
