B2Bee was founded by Scott Miller, the entrepreneur who wanted to provide software for accounting that was simpler and easier to use than the currently available options. The application has a double mission: the first “B” in the name stands for business because the goal of the site is to help businesses. The “Bee” is for the honeybee population that is rapidly decreasing. The company donates $0.25 of each monthly payment to the research dedicated to finding out why the honeybee population is dying.
This application is simpler than most other accounting software packages. Data is stored securely online and readily accessible. This is a simplified accounting package for small businesses.
The workspace is intuitive and uncluttered. Tools are easy to use. Professional logos may be uploaded for use on invoices so that they appear integrated with other business communications. Adding invoices, expenses, clients, and projects are simple, menu-driven processes.
Profitability and Accountant’s Export Reports are quickly generated to view current statistics or for tax purposes.
Overall, B2Bee is a very simple financial tool.
