Vancouver’s Kashoo reaches milestone with iPad accounting app downloads

Kashoo, a provider of online accounting software and for small businesses and freelancers, announced today that the company’s free iPad accounting app  has hit the 5,000 download milestone on iTunes.

“Hitting 5,000 app downloads in such a short period of time is a great accomplishment,” said Jim Secord, Kashoo CEO. “More importantly, though, adding these 5,000 customers to the over 20,000 sign-ups for the Web application at tells us that our customers view Kashoo as an excellent alternative to traditional accounting software.”

Chris Pace switched from QuickBooks to Kashoo, which was founded in 2008. “I was shocked at how easy Kashoo was to use,” he says. “It gives you amazing visual detail of the info you enter in on the site. It also allows you to create and edit invoices, email them out, and record all the transactions you would see on your dashboard.”
