The founders of Beacon, being entrepreneurs ourselves, faced the trials and tribulations of keeping our finances in order whilst trying to run our businesses. Much to our frustration, we realised that we were spending more time on paperwork because of difficult and unintuitive accounting software; software that was expensive and required accounting knowledge to use. Our hardships helped birthed an idea; if the market had no such system, then we would build it.
Solving a problem that we had faced ourselves meant a deeper understanding of what we wanted our accounting system to be: a no-nonsense and business-friendly system built with the entrepreneur and SME in mind. We made sure that Beacon focused on the most important part of the business, which was to issue quotations and invoices and to track purchases and expenses. To simplify the process even more, we automated the accounting entries and journals so you don't have to worry about handling them. Now, everything is just a click away with the possibility of being able to integrate with legacy systems. Best of all, it's all on the cloud so you can access it anytime, anywhere.
No one believed that we would be able to develop the Beacon system in such a short span of time and with all the features. Though the resources and time our team had were limited, we managed to create an accounting platform suitable for all types of businesses. Our core principle of helping entrepreneurs and SMEs simplify their finances enabled our team to implement features that strike the perfect balance of our individual client's needs and market priority. Beacon is now not just an accounting system; it is a full suite of business solution software.
Beacon now supports a myriad of business features such as handling sales, purchases, inventory, payroll, production flow management and many more. Businesses from all industries are signing up to use our software, from manufacturers to F&B operators. To continue to cater to both our multinational clients and local startups, Beacon will also have an integrated digital payment solution and auto bank reconciliation to help ease the burden of the accountants in performing reviews. We are committed to continually evolve and enhance our features to cater to the needs of an ever-changing digital economy. We will live up to our motto of "Business Made Easy"
We have been using Microsoft Word to issue invoices to our customers, we didn't want to spend thousands on an accounting software just to make life harder for our staffs. We also needed a tool that allows us to easily create invoices and track them. Beacon was perfect for us! Our staff learnt how to make invoices within 5 minutes and we can now track our invoices, payments and purchases as well.
AMSMediPro Sdn Bhd
We have been running our business on an offline accounting software called EMAS Accounting, which we hosted on our own server that served 10 users. We were tired of IT hardware problems, software setup issues, incompatibilities due to newer Microsoft Windows versions trying to run older software and countless random issues causing frustration to all employees. Thanks to Beacon, its all solved and it costs us less than 50% of the price of buying a new software license. The best part is, it's a seamless transition to learn up how to use Beacon within minutes. Our employees are now preparing & sending invoices much faster.
Operations Manager, Broadband Internet Group Sdn Bhd
We were using Xero Accounting for a year now. There weren't many options for cloud-based accounting software in Malaysia. All of the good ones were expensive, but Beacon fits the bill for us; it can do what we want, affordable and saves us half the cost. It's got a good design and is easy to use. This is what every SME business need!
Manager, Nemo Enterprise
I operate a home-based business selling online. Been using Wave Accounting for 2 years now, it's free but as my business grew it became limited and there was need for Credit Notes, Quotations, Delivery Orders. I used Microsoft Word to handle making invoices until Beacon came along. We made our switch immediately after trying out and experiencing that its even easier to use and the terms used are very easily understandable by layman.
