The Less Accounting Story
Less Accounting is the flagship product of Less Everything Inc., a company based in Jacksonville, Florida. The software is marketed as a unique alternative to the popular online accounting package, Quickbooks.
Aimed primarily at small businesses and part-time freelancers, the Less Accounting package was originally developed as a panacea for the company’s own financial woes. In March 2007, the service was expanded to encompass online invoicing and client proposals, and eventually released to the public.
Allan Branch, one of the founders of the Less Accounting service, writes, “In the beginning, we struggled with accounting. Accounting is boring and quite simply, no one likes accounting. We created the service to help us out.”
Despite a less than unique mission statement (simplicity, ease of use) and a disappointing testing phase, Less Accounting has garnered the attentions of small businesses all over the world. The deceptively simple interface allows users to manage their finances without having to study pages of nonsensical jargon, or learn the intricacies of double entry bookkeeping.
