  • Bookkeeping Services
  • Accounting Communication
  • Expenses Analysis

Pilot.com is the perfect bookkeeper for small businesses who do not have anyone dedicated to accounting. It is especially great for growth stage companies so can focus your resources on sales and product.

  • Quick responses to questions submitted to support
  • Integration with various banking systems and software, including HR systems and cap table system, which saves time when filing taxes
  • Further improvements in integration with various systems to automate closing books as possible, especially with modern banking systems like Rho
  • Faster time to close books
Pilot.com is a well-established solution that clearly works very well for early-stage startups like us that don't have a dedicated finance team/hires, and want to save as much time as possible closing books each month and filing taxes.

  • Tracks PayPal and Stripe membership transactions.
  • Tracks advertising payments.
  • Communicates clearly with us.
  • I would say that only room for improvement would be to offer more educational opportunities that explain what the numbers mean.
Pilot.com is most appropriate for medium to large businesses that need amortization. It is not cheap so it's not meant for very small businesses that have simple financials.

  • Accounting parametrization.
  • More focus on the client needs.
  • Better interpretation of the data provided.
The accounting integration works well once defined but also gives the sense that is a little bit blind, so you need to continuously take a look at the integrations made, so you cannot trust 100%. Also the robot it's a little bit blind so there is the need for a human to take a look at what the software makes. Definitely understand the client's business and needs are something to improve.
