BOSTON — botkeeper, the first robotic bookkeeping solution, today announced free bookkeeping for startups – botkeeper Free. A first-of-its kind service at an unbeatable price, botkeeper Free is tailored to meet the specific needs of recently-launched, often resource- and cash-strapped startup companies that need professional bookkeeping expertise but do not have the resources to secure it.
Today’s announcement also includes the introduction of botkeeper Essentials, a $99 per month bookkeeping service designed for small businesses with a limited number of monthly financial transactions.
“For the first time ever, professional, automated bookkeeping services are available for free,” said Enrico Palmerino, botkeeper founder and CEO. “Offering a cost-free service was a major botkeeper goal as we strive to support the startup community that is continuously bringing breakthrough products and services to market that in many cases are upending complete industries.”
The free bookkeeping service provides startup companies with up to 20 transactions per month, cash-basis accounting, monthly updates, reconciliations and reporting. In addition, a powerful dashboard provides at-a-glance views into a startup’s overall business. QuickBooks Online Plus via botkeeper’s management dashboard is required for the free service which does not include bill paying or client invoicing.
Also available now is the new botkeeper Essentials package. With Essentials, startups receive botkeeper service for up to 50 transactions per month as well as a fully-customizable dashboard – for $99 per month.
“botkeeper’s clients include a large number of entrepreneurs who need to stretch every dollar they have to grow their businesses, as well as better understand exactly how their businesses are doing at any point in time,” added Palmerino. “Tracking spending levels, margin percentages, company overhead, and a range of other business metrics are crucial at this stage. botkeeper’s Free and Essentials automated bookkeeping services are designed for companies just getting off the ground.”
botkeeper is redefining modern accounting best practices. Utilizing a blend of machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), and human assistance, botkeeper eliminates what historically has been a highly-manual, error-prone, and expensive back-office process. botkeeper clients benefit not only from bookkeeping automation, significant cost savings, and 99.97 percent accuracy but also from fully-customizable dashboards and reporting which give a 360-degree view of their businesses.
“botkeeper’s Free and Essentials services provide extraordinary value and significant benefits to young companies,” said Doug Sleeter, founder and CEO of The Sleeter Group, an international network of accounting software consultants, and the former producer of SleeterCon, an annual conference and tradeshow for accounting professionals. “What’s more, botkeeper is again setting the bar by continuing to assist the accounting profession move away from offering low-margin manual bookkeeping services and toward higher-value advisory services.”
