What can you use the app for?

Kashoo is a small business account software solution that is intended to provide users with an easy way to manage business expenses and income. The system is designed to remain in compliance with generally accepted account principals so that business finances are handled professionally without paying an expensive professional to do it. Kashoo allows users to enter income and invoicing details using simple data entry fields. The system can handle multiple currencies and will automatically download exchange rates daily. Users can also upload their bank statements to Kashoo and reduce the amount of time needed to enter the information. Users can also create online invoices and financial reports as well as invite multiple users to view and edit the information so all the right people have access.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Clarity Accounting was built by Habitsoft Inc. in 2008. Habitsoft was founded in 2007. The company began as a custom software developer but later moved into SaaS web applications intended for small businesses. Clarity Accounting was Habitsoft’s first product in this direction. The team remains quite small but still offers up a long list of feature to make running a business that much easier. Clarity Accounting changed its name to Kashoo in 2010.

What are the differences to other apps?

Many business owners fear the accounting aspect of running their business, yet there may not be room in the budget to hire a professional. Kashoo helps business owners manage expenses on their own using an intuitive system that can save a great deal of time. With the ability to upload bank statements and switch currencies, Kashoo takes a lot of the time and frustration out of the financial side of running a small business.
