Using Botkeeper from its Early Days at Kinnami Software, a Seed-Stage Startup

Botkeeper absolves Kinnami from the drudgery and hassle of book keeping. Basically, all I have to do is ensure the receipts are there, and then all book keeping is handled. This makes filing the annual tax returns less painful as Botkeeper already has all the information the accounting firm needs to create the tax return.
At Kinnam, we do not have nor want large teams of people to handle administration. Outsourcing book keeping to Botkeeper is a great way to solve part of that problem.

Pros

The best thing about Botkeeper's software is that it is invisible in the sense that it doesn't dictate how you should use it to collect information that it needs, and so it's very easy to fit into your workflow. Historically, Botkeeper had its own Dropbox-style integration, and now it is switching to Google Drive. This means that providing receipts and other information is as simple as putting the digital scan of a receipt into the Google Drive folder. Or if you prefer, you can upload files by hand using the portal.
Secondly, their portal provides nice views that show the state of your company's finances.

Cons

Botkeeper is a young company, and so growing pains are painful. The system has undergone several major changes during the 2 years that I've been using it, and those transitions were not completely smooth. However, to date, all problems were successfully resolved and the team really worked to address them, and those problems were rare.

Botkeeper

Right now I'm only testing the Botkeeper team on my most important client. They have consistently performed (or outperformed) whenever I had feedback for them. This bodes well for the future when I expect to add at least 5-10 more clients in the future!

Pros

I just hung out the shingle on my new CPA firm, and I want to use a strategic partner like Botkeeper to help me scale. So I love that I can white label the platform while having a dedicated team of accountants assigned to my clients.

Cons

I feel like their portal still has room for improvement even after their recent upgrade. One of the worst problems was the difficulty editing the dashboards for your own needs. That was one of the improvements on this last rollout.

Pilot and Bench

Reasons for Switching to botkeeper

I was lucky enough to meet the Botkeeper founder Enrico Palmerino. And I wanted to work with a young, scrappy, and hungry competitor. And now that they recently completed a new financing round, I have to say that the future looks bright.

Botkeeper has turned our bookkeepers into account managers

Our firm is growing so rapidly that we needed to offload tasks to Botkeeper to continue taking on clientele without adding to our labor cost. So far so good and we are excited to keep scaling with Botkeeper!

Pros

The most significant upside is removing those tedious, monotonous tasks from the bookkeepers and having them become actual account managers focusing on high-level tasks, quality control and working more closely with the clients in other areas besides bookkeeping.

Cons

There are a few minor things within the system (that doesn't affect the overall work) that could be improved, but it's still a growing company, and I have faith in the product roadmap that they will be addressed.

Botkeeper Accounting Review

Pros

I like the fact they handle it and they communicate well with what client needs are.

Cons

It isn't the easiest software to use and there are a lot of things that could be improved with the UI. They are updating it frequently so that is good.

An accountants dream come true

Botkeeper has a dedicated customer service rep that you meet with twice a week who is always helpful. Customer service is creme de la creme. Tech support is also helpful and usually responds pretty swiftly. THeir [SENSITIVE CONTENT] is brilliant, someone to look out for in the future of tech and accounting.

Pros

I like that Botkeeper is able ot do a lot of the tedious part of my job, it frees me up to focus on more important things for my clients that need my personal touch. I would say Botkeeper saves about a quarter og my client hours each month allowing me to spend more time speaking to the clients about the health of their business or answer Q's they may have.

Cons

Sometimes the connections with the bank break. I don't think this is Botkeepers fault (it's usually Amex) but it can still be frustrating nad time-consuming to relink the accounts.
