The iPad has come a long way since two years ago when the device was advertised mainly as a gadget for entertainment.
The tablet, presented by Apple as a light portable device for surfing the web and watching videos, has become more and more useful for doing serious work thanks to the numerous apps available now. And what can be more serious than accounting?
Kashoo Accounting recently showed off its newly released app dedicated to iPad users, which is already proving to be very successful. The Vancouver-based company announced it had achieved more than 5,000 downloads shortly after the app was introduced.
In addition to gaining 5,000 customers, Jim Secord, the company CEO, declared that over 20,000 people signed up on company's website and appreciated the Kashoo Accounting app as a useful tool.
The app, designed exclusively for the iPad, is meant to replace the alternative accounting software as an app with a complete set of features. Users can create invoices and e-mail them instantly, can track their payments and access online bank accounts.
Small business owners seem to have particularly appreciated the offer, especially since the app is free in the App Store even if most of them already haveaccounting systems set up on their devices.
