Saasu is taking the fight to Xero and MYOB in the online accounting software market with the launch of a new version of its most popular product, Saasu ‘Accountants Edition’.
Along with access to these core functions, included in the monthly package are 50 accounts receivable invoices, 50 accounts payable invoices, and 200 reconciled bank statement lines.
In comparison, Xero’s Small pricing plan ($29 a month) offers only 5 Accounts Receivable, 5 Accounts Payable, and 20 reconciled statement lines each month. This price is even more than the Saasu Pro plan ($25 a month) which includes unlimited invoicing and bank reconciliation, as well as a fully integrated inventory and payroll system. For comparison, MYOB LiveAccounts online accounting package launched in August for $25/month.
Marc Lehmann, founder and Chief Executive of Saasu, says “We’ve always promoted Saasu as an affordable, scalable system for any business type, and this new release means just that for smaller organisations and sole traders.”
Marc has long been a strong advocate for the Software as a Service industry, and goes on to explain that “online software shouldn’t just be easier for customers to use, it should be cheaper.”
“Although we take great pride in having the most feature-rich product on the market, we realise not all businesses require such a comprehensive accounting system. We saw no reason why these firms should pay for features they will never use, and instead of limiting usage of all functions across the product, we simply focussed on providing the essential features our smaller clients love.”
Mike Chisholm, Chief Executive of Acclipse, said “this option is just what accountants have been asking for. Everyone has small clients who can’t justify paying the costs Xero and MYOB are charging. We partnered with Saasu because we wanted an online accounting solution that offered great value to both businesses and accountants, along with great performance and features. I’m really pleased that so soon after announcing our partnership we’re able to deliver this new version.”
After a series of successful roadshows across Australia and New Zealand, Saasu has been inundated by accountants wanting to incorporate the product into their practice. Of this, Lehmann said “we’re seeing more firms pass through our training programme than we have before. After all, Saasu is about saving both businesses and their advisors time, and it’s great to see our customers getting excited as they realise this.”
Businesses can request the Saasu Accountants Edition directly from their accountant.
