Kashflow online accounting software

For a long time I had been looking for a better financial accounting package. The Sage range of products are cumbersome to use for a non-accountant and used to have to be installed on a single PC. Multi-company and multi-user versions of Sage are expensive. What I needed was a simple cloud based system which could be accessed from anywhere and by other users who have the necessary permissions.

After an extensive search I settled on ‘Kashflow‘. It is an extremely easy to use, cost effective and built for small businesses who do their own accounts.

As a cloud based solution, the software can run on any platform with a browser and be accessed by anyone with permission. There is a separate accountants portal which enables you to give permission for your advisers to access the data when completing annual accounts.

Kashflow are a UK based organisation and seem to have an excellent community of users who push for new functionality and updates. Weekly backup files are sent via email which, while hopefully not really necessary, provide an element of reassurance for those who are not comfortable with no data on their local computer.

After several financial years of Kashflow I would never go back to Sage. I find it pitched just right for small business owners who would rather run their business than struggle to learn accounting software.

See their site www.kashflow.com for more details and give it a try.

Notes forever on any platform

I am a prolific user of Evernote, the cloud based note taking service. For those who are not familiar with the product, it is a cloud based virtual ‘notebook’ which is available on all popular platforms. With the capability to hold text, graphics, sound and other documents there is not much you can’t put into a note.

Platforms

I have the Evernote client installed on my Mac computers, iPad and iPhone. I also use the web based version when I am working away on a PC. The ability to sync instantly between the various clients is so useful, meaning that you can start a note on the mobile and then finish it at home when at the desktop.

PDF’s and Paperless

Evernote enables you to insert a PDF into a note which it then OCS’s and indexes. This means that the search is very powerful and makes it virtually impossible to lose your information. The whole set up provides an excellent platform for going paperless.

An account is free to set up and a ‘pro’ option is available which provides more features and a higher upload limit.  See the Evernote web site to download and try for free.
