Reckon One makeover cuts clicks

The cloud accounting system has a revamped dashboard that brings users closer to their data.

Reckon One's dashboard has been given a makeover. Going beyond a 'look and feel' update, the changes mean the most commonly used functions can be reached with fewer clicks.

For example, the invoice list is two clicks away rather than three. Similarly, editing an invoice, accessing the bills list, and editing a bill are all one click closer to the dashboard.

Other benefits of the change are that it provides room to accommodate additional (and as yet to be announced) functions, while the fluid design adjusts the layout to suit the device in use.

Making routine tasks quicker and easier frees up time so users can concentrate on their business rather than bookkeeping, a Reckon spokesperson suggested.

"This new side navigation panel is a clever use of page space, and is great for tablets," said Reckon accredited partner Kim Chapman. "The improved grouping and layout of quick links also makes it much easier to find functions."

Reckon has also changed some of the terminology used in the interface, with 'selling' and 'buying' becoming 'money in' and 'money out'.

"With our smarter breed of online accounting software and 'perfect fit' approach, small businesses can now benefit from a combination of superior value based on our unique pricing structure and simplicity," said Reckon group CEO Clive Rabie.

The "unique pricing structure" is that Reckon One starts at $5 per month, with various add-on modules such as invoicing, bank feeds, payroll and time and expenses tracking priced from $3 per month. 

This differs from other accounting systems that use small/medium/large style pricing, so a one-person business that makes hundreds of sales each month may need to pay for features that it might not need, such as multicurrency support and payroll.

With Reckon One, all that person would need to do is pay $3 for the basic invoicing module which includes an unlimited number of transactions. The business wouldn't even need the $5 per month 'medium' invoicing module because that only adds sales and purchase approvals, which are only necessary if the owner or manager wants to delegate the administrative work while retaining control of the process.
