Automated bookkeeping with a human touch: Botkeeper

The success of a business is dependent on a healthy financial model. All too often entrepreneurs with amazing vision, tremendous passion, and the tenacity and drive needed to succeed end up risking it all but don’t have the necessary financial tools needed to succeed. Instead, their bookkeeping and accounting lets them down with slow or delayed reporting, limited analytics, and issues with accuracy that cause awesome businesses to fall victim to cash flow challenges, slipping margins, or slowed revenue growth. Enter the genesis of Botkeeper.

Botkeeper was founded by a team of entrepreneurs who suffered the same bookkeeping challenges experienced by most small and midsize businesses. They realized the primary issue with bookkeeping was the humans in the middle tasked with doing the work: tedious, manual, and repetitive data entry combined with visualization and analytics of that data. Human error, unexpected life events, a need to sleep, and a lack of scalability make humans very inefficient at bookkeeping. However, if people could replace the human with robot-like software, they might be able to solve this dilemma. Software bots are excellent at automating data entry accurately, 24/7, and they're also great at following rules and accounting policies consistently and precisely, as well as visually rendering unlimited reports, dashboards, and charts.

Botkeeper proudly presents the world’s best bookkeeper - a faster, more accurate, more affordable, and highly scalable bookkeeper that represents the future of bookkeeping as we know it.

It’s everything a business owner needs to do the bookkeeping—without actually having to DO the bookkeeping.
