LONDON, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Disruptive pricing puts bookkeeping within reach of all businesses
UK accountancy and payroll software leader IRIS is today launching the new version of its cloud-based accounting software, KashFlow. The product is now available in three editions to meet the unique business needs of companies of different sizes, priced to be within range of even the smallest organisation.
It features a major upgrade to its look, feel and revolutionary responsive design that automatically optimises the application for the device through which it is being viewed - whether that's a mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. What's more, the latest version of the pioneering UK online bookkeeping application integrates seamlessly with the new KashFlow Payroll, also being launched today, enabling small business owners to completely control their finances.
Work effortlessly with your accountancy partner
KashFlow enables small businesses to focus on their day-to-day priorities by removing the complexity associated with accounting and payroll. At a glance, it provides information about business performance without the need for advanced financial expertise. But when that expertise is needed, KashFlow customers can now work effortlessly with their accountancy provider, as KashFlow is now integrated with the IRIS Accountancy Suite, used by 50 per cent of UK accountancy firms, to prepare tax and accounts for their SME clients.
Intuitive responsive user interface design
Due to its revolutionary new responsive design and user interface, users can now access KashFlow from any Internet-enabled device, such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop PC; the application will dynamically optimise itself for the device in use. The new design avoids time wasted downloading and regularly updating mobile apps. Business owners can now work where, when and how they like.
Available in three editions
Each of the new editions can be trialled for free and each enables easy creation, customisation and editing of invoices; raising of quotes, estimates and pro-forma invoices; automation of reoccurring purchases; management of customers and suppliers; and a wide range of reporting, banking, credit control and accounting capabilities.
There are three simple pricing options available ensuring sole traders never need pay for more than necessary, while larger employers have access to all they require. The 'Starter'edition offers value for money for freelancers, contractors and low-transaction businesses at £5 a month whilst the 'Business' edition is ideal for growing organisations and limited companies. At £10 per month it supports multiple users, unlimited multi-currency invoices and bank transactions. 'Business + Payroll' edition is only £15 a month, and includes all the benefits of the 'Business' edition plus the newly integrated KashFlow Payroll product for up to five employees.
Introducing KashFlow Payroll
The 'Business + Payroll' edition includes the new KashFlow Payroll suite, a fully integrated online payroll solution that shares information seamlessly with KashFlow at the touch of a button. This saves users time while improving accuracy and removing the duplication of effort associated with running separate bookkeeping and payroll systems. It also provides support for the latest legislative changes such as Real Time Information (RTI), removing the headache of reporting to HMRC and other UK legislative bodies.
Liz Sleightholm of ITG Instructor Training Limited says, "KashFlow makes accessing your accounts from anywhere far more straightforward - emailing professional looking invoices and remittances is simple. I have worked as a company accountant for many years for large organisations and have used numerous accounting systems and KashFlow is ideal for small and medium-sized businesses, it is also great for those without much accounting experience."
Phill Robinson, IRIS CEO says, "Small businesses have enough to contend with on a day-to-day basis without having the additional worries of UK government legislation or struggling to keep their accountants updated regularly. Our new version of KashFlow will help small businesses focus their time and energy on what they do best rather than wrestling with accounts, payroll and dealing with the tax man.
"We are passionate about making the flow of information between businesses, accountants and government as easy and efficient as possible. We know that online solutions are perfect for this, with over 93,000 users already subscribing to our cloud-based applications. Our new KashFlow editions, and KashFlow Payroll ensure small business owners can benefit just as easily and effectively as larger firms."
