Finding the perfect software for a growing business
As a small, home-based business, Nicole required a cost effective and basic accounting software to keep track of a growing number of transactions, and fulfil reporting requirements.
Having never run a business before, Nicole needed a solution that was simple to use and quick to set up.
After a year into her business, Nicole engaged a bookkeeper for advice on accounting software options – it was Reckon One that was recommended with the Invoices add-on.
