It's a question we get a lot. How does Kashoo compare to QuickBooks™ Online? According to GetApp, we're one of the top-five QuickBooks™ alternatives for small business accounting, for three simple reasons: Kashoo is easier-to-use, it works seamlessly on your iPhone or iPad, and we have world-class support to help you through whatever you're up against. As GetApp puts it:
You're on the hunt for new accounting software. You need a tool to manage some small business bookkeeping basics, like bank integrations, payroll functions, and multi-currency conversions. You'd like a lower price point than what QuickBooks Online costs. And you want to use your tool of choice on mobile devices, specifically your iPhone and iPad.GetApp Researcher Lauren Maffeo adds:
Shopping for accounting software can be overwhelming. So, it's tempting for small business owners with borrowed time and budgets to choose the most popular tool without learning if it's the best fit for them. If small business owners shop for software based on specific needs instead, they'll make more informed buying decisions.
Why Kashoo is a Great Quickbooks Alternative
Eas(ier) to Use
In the feedback we've received from clients, we've noticed that ease-of-use is top of the list for small business owners when it comes to doing their own books. They want an accounting app that just works, is intuitive, and isn't built for accountants.
"I love an application that is user friendly and just down to earth easy to use. That's what Kashoo is."

"I find your software very user friendly and you don't have to be a trained bookkeeper to use it. There is a great need for this in the small business and farm community."
— Ed M., Kashoo client since 2014
