AccountMate
AccountMate is a great product for wholesale and distributors. It manages the inventory cycles comprehensively, from purchasing to stocking, to sales and delivery. There are a great many tools available to manage inventory, properties, and financials. The availability to have third-party add-ons offers even greater opportunities to meet the needs of the end-user. The system is not really suited for certain types of service industries: legal, medical, and those businesses that invoice on time.

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.

  • 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.

Cons
AccountMate
  • Custom reports: The current system uses Crystal Reports, which is a bit cumbersome.
  • True cloud-based solution is missing

  • 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

Alternatives Considered
AccountMate
We use AccountMate for a number of reasons, particularly its ease of use and the ability to customize any part of the system (with source code residing on the end-user system--a HUGE advantage).

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
