Bookkeeping converts all your business transactions and documents to financial data in an accounting system, e.g. invoices, receipts, payroll, expenses etc.

Most bookkeeping is routine work, plus certain non-routine transactions. Traditional bookkeeping is manual, prone to errors and inconsistencies.

DoughGetters transforms your bookkeeping into a process with flow, accuracy, automation and joy.

We’ve seen that most of your bookkeeping can be automated through Xero and integratable apps, through DoughGetters Ximple. By adopting a hands-free approach to data capturing, you save time and improve accuracy. Free up your team’s time for more value-added and human-to-human tasks!
