Billy brings free accounting software to U.S.
PR Newswire — Portland, OR (Aug. 29, 2016)
Billy announced today the release of its free, cloud-based accounting software for small businesses and entrepreneurs. Users can get their free accounts at www.BillyApp.com and be up-and-running in under two minutes.
“Our platform has been built from the ground up by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs,” said Billy’s founder Toke Kruse. “I met so many small business owners that, like me, were very frustrated with how unnecessarily complex Quickbooks was, so I decided to build a much more user-friendly alternative. My partner and I met with hundreds of entrepreneurs and freelancers all over America. They told us exactly what they wanted in an accounting software and we built a solution perfectly tailored to their specific needs.”
Billy allows users to create beautiful, personalized invoices in seconds, email them to their clients with one click and get paid online instantly. “Entrepreneurs need to get paid fast, so we made collecting as easy and efficient as it can possibly be,” said Zeke Camusio, Billy’s CEO.
Billy makes it very easy for entrepreneurs to keep track of their business expenses, so they can see where their money is going and make smart business decisions. “A lot of our users have been keeping receipts in envelopes and using rudimentary spreadsheets for years. They’re amazed at how much more profitable they can be when they’re on top of their finances. Not to mention, tax season is so much easier when everything is well organized,” said Camusio.
Although 98% of Billy’s users choose the free version of the product, Billy also offers a premium version for $29/month that offers recurring invoicing, a quote creator feature and phone support.
Billy was born in Denmark in 2012 and has grown its user base to over 50,000 paying subscribers in just four years. After years spent developing an American version of its software, the company has set up an office in Portland, OR and will now offer users the exact same functionality free of charge. Billy is a cloud-based product available on PC, Mac, tablets and smartphones internationally.
