Cross platform with support and bolt-ons

you can skype us

Both Filemaker Pro and Beankeeper run on PCs and Macs. Support for Beankeeper comes from our YouTube channel and tutorials and e-mail and other internet support.
Addiionally we can, for an extra charge, add bolt ons for multi user, with security levels and remote log-in. We also offer a server version that can be accessed from anywhere, on laptops, i-phones and i-pads with Filemaker Go.


How is Beankeeper organised?

Beankeeper is organised exactly the way business is.
So it has nominal, business and accounts sections reached via two main screens - one to enter data and one to analyse it.

What kind of data can I store in Beankeeper?

Pretty much everything we could think of. Data of course, but also important assets like Word Docs, pdf files, images and movies. So you can, for instance, store payment advice notes with purchase invoices, photographs with contacts and job notes and instructons with your jobs.

Do I need to understand coding?

Absolutely not.

Beankeeper is about clicking in a field and entering data. Filemaker pro is a superb engine and Beankeeper uses it to the full. Beankeeper is organised by clear screens, each one covering a part of the user's business or accounts systems. The user selects the section, clicks in the clearly labelled fields and enters the data. Beankeeper does the rest.

How secure is Beankeeper?


When you exit any field the data is instantly saved. Follow the installation and instructions and Beankeeper updates a safety, backup copy each time you exit the file. Couple Beankeeper to a cloud system such as Dropbox, iCloud or Google and your data is safe.

How many reports does Beankeeper produce?

Over 100.

Beankeeper provides everything you need to run a small business. Simple price lists, estimates or quotes, purchase orders, job analysis, lists, sales invoices and credit notes, cash receipts, statements, bank statements, profit and loss analysis, VAT returns and print outs of your nominal ledgers for your accounts reconciliations.

What support do I get?

Whatever you need. But Beankeeper is so easy we think it won't be much!

We're a small operation that worries about its customers. So you can watch our YouTube tutorials, e-mail us with any problems - even Skype call if you need to.

But don't take our word for it...
