Beankeeper is a stand alone programme that stores the data generated by every facet of of a business, analyses it and then outputs it into tables and forms that provide immediate information to run and understand exactly how that business is performing.
We think of it as a sort of Swiss Army knife for independent entrpreneurs.
If you're in business, or thinking of starting a business, you need a system. To keep tabs on clients, projects, purchases, expenses, mileage, billing, account statements and profitability. And banking. And tax. You could use a lot of expensive software to do that. Or find yourself being committed to a long term contract with back end strings attached. Or, for a very small fee, just one easy to understand app. Beankeeper.
Primarily, Beankeeper was created to get things going. It was built for a commercials production company that looked at the alternatives and didn't feel that they fitted. So they comissioned their own. The freelancers they worked with saw how easy it was to become efficient and liked it. Beankeeper was born.Over the years we developed it to do more, to the point where it was handling everthing on our system from accounts to distribution. Later we worked with the IT faculty of Leicester University who obtaiend an EU grant to investigate making Beankeeper more accessible and user friendly.
Beankeeper has always been used by creative people. Photographers, web designers, graphic artists, musicians and film makers are all members of the hive. But Beankeeper will also look after builders, decorators, plumbers and electicians have found Beankeeper makes their lives easier. And small business like restaurants, furniture designers and property letting agents use it. Even a horse ranch in Wyoming has a Beankeeper.

Although Beankeeper is very straightforward to use, we haven't taken anything for granted. All the main screens have "Help" buttons that take the user to the correct place in the on-line manual. There is also a downloadable pdf version of that manual, which is also fully searchable. We are working on demo tutorials on our YouTube channel and we'll be adding to them. And if you still need help, e-mail email@example.com with screen shots and we'll advise you directly.
