Unlike traditional or mainframe based accounting systems, sites in the CounterBooks application exist in a hierarchy structure specifically designed for multi-site retail operations. This unique structure allows for accurate and granular reporting, including individual site Profit and Loss reports, a group Balance Sheet and network level Management reports. This ensures the most effective management of the brand at the lowest unit cost.
CounterBooks was among the first online accounting systems for retailers brought to market. Over the years, partnerships have been developed with major retailers, major wholesalers, other IT suppliers to the retail industry, banks, acocuntants and payroll companies creating a digital ecosystem for retailers. The knowledge gained allows us to continue to offer a unique service tailored for each large retail business. Integrating CounterBooks with the IT systems operated by our partners allows retailers to automate nearly all of the accounting data entry, significantly reducing the time and money spent on back office functions, whilst at the same time improving the accuracy and timeliness of management information.

Because CounterBooks is provided as a cloud-based system, there is no need for any software to be installed on the users’ computers. Data is kept in a highly secure data centre and is backed up regularly without requiring any involvement from the users. Access to the data in CounterBooks is controlled via the use of various security levels and further bespoke limitations can be added on top of this according to your business needs.
Our 24/7 multi-language helpdesk messaging service is a standard feature, allowing any questions or problems to be reviewed and answered with the quickest possible turnaround time. Additionally, our knowledgeable helpdesk staff are available during normal office hours to provide further support for no extra cost and without the use of premium rate phone numbers.
Whether you are an Accountant, Franchise Owner or Area Manager, having several (sometimes hundreds) of sites to look after can be stressful, time consuming and particularly costly. CounterBooks gives you visability across regional, national or even international networks of retail sites. You can work where you want, when you want. All you need is access to the internet.
Cloud computing has changed the way technology can be used to address business needs. Automatic, free software updates allow us to react in the quickest possible way to any potential issues, delivering secure customer-specific solutions without having to install new software or even be on site.
Our average retailer, whether from the Pub, Fuel or Convenience Store sector, spends less than 15mins. per day entering relevant data into CounterBooks. Up to 95% of data entry can be automated, allowing Counterbooks users to concentrate on growing their business, not spending time dealing with basic bookkeeping tasks.
