KashFlow Accounting Software Integrates with MailChimp

KashFlow is an easy to understand accounting system for UK small and medium size businesses. Their online accounting software aims to make the world of invoicing, cash-flow management and VAT reports simple and streamlined, so you can spend your time running your business, not struggling with software.

We have a gang of users in the UK, and as much as I try to avoid all things accounting, rumor has it, it’s kind of a big deal. Small businesses spend an average of 5 hours every week dealing with accounting-related tasks like credit control, statutory financial requirements (what?) and chasing overdue invoices.
Additionally, one of the biggest challenges for any business is taking control of their own data. In fact, that’s exactly what we’re trying to help you guys do through things like The Small Business Web. We want you to be able to use all the data you have to communicate with your customers and subscribers in the most effective way possible. And that is what KashFlow’s integration helps you do.

Basically, the KashFlow and MailChimp integration allows you to push your customer information from KashFlow right into your MailChimp list without having to go through the export-and-import process. One-click and you’re done – we’re big fans of that around here.

If you’re already a KashFlow customer there is no additional fee to use the MailChimp integration. If you’re interested in trying out KashFlow, you can get a 60 day trial here. They also take you through the process of setting up the integration here.

If you’re in the UK and not very familiar with KashFlow, here are a few things that impressed us about them. In 2008 KashFlow was the first accounting software to be certified by PayPal for integration with its payment platform. Additionally they’ve won a myriad of awards including a Business Software Satisfaction award for small business accounting. They were also named Small Business Accounting Software Package of 2009 and Web-Hosted Accounting Software Package of 2009 at the Software Satisfaction Awards.
