WHY We Switch From Software as a Service (SaaS)
To Mobile Apps as a Service (AaaS)?
To make it easy for truckers keep their books up to date without
We know from our over 25 years experience providing bookkeeping
and tax services to truckers, that truckers cannot drive and
keep their business papers and their books up to date, so with
good intention, they are sold the idea of purchase bookkeeping software.
Using any bookkeeping software requires someone to do some form
of data entry, so the software purchase becomes an added
business expense and bookkeeping task to do.
For an owner operator that means having to spend weekends
or other available time doing the required data entry, trying to
keep the bookkeeping business papers organized and the data
entry up to data which takes away the opportunity to spend
quality time with their family.
As with business papers, they will usually store/file them in a
storage box with the plan to organize and enter them later,
which is their good intention.
However, for majority of
singleton truckers, it never happens which results in they not
getting around to doing the required bookkeeping with the result being
that the bookkeeping task required to keep their books and
compliance tax filings fall behind.
A quick survey of singleton owner operator truckers, you will
find that they have one-to-two years or more of delinquent tax
filings, this means, if the auditor called for a look-see, they
would incur a large tax payable liability.
They would have lost significant tax deductions
designed to lower their tax payable due to lost and
faded receipts from in pocket and envelopes paper storage.
However, some truckers that have not fallen for the idea of
using bookkeeping software to do their own bookkeeping, usually
assemble the business papers and send to an accountant or
bookkeeper to do the bookkeeping.
For this group, this is
good. However, this comes with other challenges.
The other challenges they face.
Accountants and bookkeepers today are reluctant to take on
Truckers as clients unless they can provide them with a
spreadsheet of the business transactions. Again, that is the
same thing as doing their own bookkeeping data entry.
As a result, most accountants, and bookkeepers, insist that
their truckers bookkeeping client’s signup and use one of the
popularized bookkeeping software, which by the way, lacks the
expense details needed in the
chart-of-account and will not come customized for
truckers, as these software are usually designed for small or
medium side businesses requiring truckers to tailor their data entry
to fit the software, depriving them of critical operating
How to fix all that.
What truckers need is a mobile bookkeeping management system
that allows them to use their smartphone to send the bookkeeping
business papers for bookkeeping process management to their
accountants or bookkeeper and get a
monthly P&L and related
operating result analysis reports on their phone, to
allow them to always know their numbers at a glance, without
any bookkeeping data entry or bookkeeping software experience.
Knowing this, in 2016 we set out on a mission to go paperless
and use technology to customize an easy-to-use mobile
bookkeeping APP to provide truckers with a data entry free
bookkeeping system that would allow them to use their smartphone
to keep their books, the bookkeeping files and quarterly tax
filings, HST (Canada)
and USA Estimated Tax
filings, up to date and position their business to be always tax
We launched the first version of the mobile bookkeeping APP for
truckers with one truck in 2018, including a documents
manager version of the APP for truckers with 2-5 trucks.
