Yendo – Helping Small Businesses Save

Here’s a little secret: Not all small business owners are whizzes when it comes to accounting and financial matters. To help these struggling entrepreneurs, Yendo was developed. The financial accounting web-app can be used to manage a business’ invoices, purchases, expenses, and payments to vendors.

Yendo is a full-figured app that has more features and functionalities than the average business owner might need. Check it out for yourself by signing up for a free trial. One of the first features you’ll want to check out is Yendo’s invoice management system. With Yendo, you can create and send invoices via email and then record payments or track overdue bills online. Click over to the “Sales” or “Purchases” tabs to create business reports, balance sheets, and profit/loss statements. These reports can then be exported to XLS and PDF for easy sharing with investors and colleagues. Yendo also offers a number of tools to aid in expense tracking. Rather than waiting until tax season to frantically gather business receipts for write offs and deductions, you can use Yendo to record expenses and save receipts all year long. Expenses can be separated out by employee, making it easy to see who is spending what at your office.

For business owners who want the tools to manage their finances online without the burden of being 100 percent in charge in case something goes wrong, Yendo offers a special feature that gives accountants and CPAs direct access to their clients’ accounts. Although Yendo faces stiff competition from competing web-apps, the system’s bevy of top-notch features and comparatively low pricing options make it a winner.

Practical Uses:

  • Send invoices to clients for completed work
  • Create profit/loss statements to share with investors
  • View your bank balance and see how much money is available at any given time
  • Make a monthly budget forecast that managers can use when planning events

Insider Tips:

  • Users can set up recurring invoices to be sent out to certain clients periodically
  • Yendo offers advice to businesses on how much sales tax to collect
  • Reports can be exported as XLS or PDF files
  • Yendo works on smartphones and tablet computers

What we liked:

  • Users can give their accountants special access to their accounts
  • The receipts that staff members submit can be recorded in Yendo as expenses
  • Yendo keeps track of which invoices have been paid and which are overdue
  • By tracking invoices and on-time payments, Yendo can help identify a business’ best and worst customers

What we didn’t like:

  • A number of similar accounting applications already exist, and people who are happy with their current systems are unlikely to switch over

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like
    yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

  2. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about
    a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on
    the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre
    talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something
    enlightening to read?

  4. Nice read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Therefore let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
