The Accountancy Partnership
Pandle was realised in 2015 when The Accountancy Partnership (TAP) discovered that some of the simplest of bookkeeping tasks were being made highly complex & time-consuming, rife with mistakes brought about by overly complex accounting software.
TAP is a nationwide online accountancy firm that specialises in managing the tax affairs of small-to-medium sized businesses throughout the UK.
Dealing with smaller businesses, they found that the financial records that were submitted to them by their clients were of a basic format, typically a whole list of figures stored on a disorganised spreadsheet or notepad. This often resulted in a lot of time spent organising and processing, subsequently costing their clients a lot of money.
Their clients often couldn’t justify spending hundreds of pounds per year on comprehensive bookkeeping products like Sage Line 50, nor did they have the in-house expertise to use it.
As a result, Yozu were approached by TAP to design and develop a bookkeeping product that was geared solely towards small business owners who were typically inexperienced bookkeepers.
TAP approached Yozu with a challenging set of deliverables. They required a simple yet innovative cloud application that made bookkeeping simple. This is what has now made Pandle the go-to application for any SMB with little to no accounting experience. Prior to this project, Yozu’s main body of work focused on Logistics, CRM, E-Commerce and Payment Portals, however, drawing on our decades of experience and following a two-week consultation, we drafted a high-level specification that outlined our proposed solution.
During an initial two-week consultation period Yozu gathered detailed requirements from the client and then drafted a high-level specification that outlined our proposed solution. The final product would be a web-based application hosted in the cloud, and a firm emphasis would be placed on maintaining a clear and concise interface (less is more!).
The application would be developed using the Ruby on Rails technology stack and be both scalable and portable across different cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services and Rackspace.
In addition to the challenges, we also went on to provide the following functionality:
The entire product was designed, developed and tested in less than a year and is now deployed and marketed online as Pandle. With over 1000 users subscribed within the first three months, the feedback from both their existing clients and new customers has been the motivation behind continuing to develop and incorporate even more features and functionality within the system.
