KashFlow produces off-line product

Internet-based accountancy software company KashFlow has released software that can be used offline on a desktop

ONLINE ACCOUNTANCY SOFTWARE business KashFlow has produced a product that can be used offline. This is the first non internet-based product the company has released.

The new product, called RapidFire, is aimed at accountants and bookkeepers and allows them to input data into software that is not used over the internet.

KashFlow sales director Michelle Gorsuch said: “Bookkeepers are used to being able to enter data quickly using just the keyboard. This is an area where web-applications fail to deliver. Rather than trying to change the way our customers work we have instead developed a tool to help them work just as efficiently as they have in the past with on-premise software”

Initially RapidFire is only available to accountants and bookkeepers using Orbit Accounts which manages multiple clients.

Days before the announcement a rumour circulated that Sage were to resell KashFlow.

Duane JacksonDuane Jackson, KashFlow CEO (pictured left), said on Twitter that was “amazingly close to the truth”, which added fuel to the fire.

However, Jackson was referring to the offline product and the fact that the software borrows its keyboard shortcuts heavily from Sage 50.

The business has also recently acquired A1 Business Forums which will feature on the Kashflow website for small businesses.
