What SAAS or software can help automate our company's bookkeeping?

I know that there are some startups working on software to significantly reduce the work needed in bookkeeping. Does anyone know of any that actually work well?

    Xero

    Beautiful accounting software.

    James GillCEO, GoSquared · Written
    Can't recommend Xero highly enough – they're growing like crazy and have integrations with almost everything you need. Lots of accountants also use Xero under the hood anyway – at least in Europe.

      We use Xero to control our income, expanses, VAT predictions. Great tool. It takes a while find out how to control all over Xero but in the end it is huge time server and we know pretty sure how the business stands.

      In my mind, this is the best option for startup bookkeeping right now. It's already pretty good, and bound to only get better as more of it gets automated. To my pleasant surprise, the (human) team was very responsive in answering questions or addressing concerns as things popped up.

    • We elected to use Pilot at Parabol a couple of months ago. Switching to them has been easy. On-boarding a cinch. And, their non-robotic colleagues were able to suggest some great changes to our chart of accounts. Would recommend!

    Quickbooks is a great solution for that. They have lots of version of this software for companies, self-employed, etc. It has went through many iterations over the years and the most reliable solution I could find.

    Haven't used it yet but heard a lot of good things. Also happened to work with one of the founders for a short time. Great guy.

    Surprised Noone mentioned Freshbooks. They've been good to me for 3 years and counting.

  7. Oficin makes email receipts management as simple as forwarding them to your own AI assistant. In the background it will take care of extracting the price, convert it to your home currency and make it into a clear monthly overview.

    Tiller Money

    The only automatic sync of financial data into Google Sheets

    Automatic daily import of bank and financial transactions into Google Sheets with powerful templates to get you started (or build your own). Money management pretty much always ends up in spreadsheets one way or another - Tiller removes the tedium of manually importing bank and credit card CSVs etc. Tiller's new AutoCat Docs Add-On categorizes expenses directly in Sheets based the rules you set.

    QBO is super easy to use, includes payroll and invoicing, and has integrations with everything you can think of. We use QBO with ReceiptBank so nobody ever has to manually do expense reports, and it's natively plugged into our payments processor.

  12. As the name suggests it automatically enters your bills and invoices into Xero or QBO. They also convert bank statements into csv's so that you can bring in historical bank data into Xero and QBO
