Subscription Accounting Web Application
Client: Colin McGreedy, Cab Accounts (www.cab-accounts.co.uk)
Business Type: UK based accounting firm specializing in taxi driver accounts
Client needs: Colin told me that he needed a better system for his specialized
clients to keep their books. He decided that his existing system that was based on Excel
spreadsheets was inefficient and that a custom developed software application would
give Cab Accounts a competitive advantage in the marketplace and also reduce the labor
that he and his clients expended in bookkeeping and tax preparation.
He determined that reducing bookkeeping labor would help his business as well
as his client’s business make more profit.
Solution: I worked with Colin to develop a web-based subscription accounting application
called CabSave (cab-accounts.co.uk/cabsave). CabSave is offered exclusively to Cab Accounts
taxi driver clients.
With CabSave the drivers can perform bookkeeping tasks and track income,
expenses and profit from any computer or smart phone with a web browser.
At tax time, Colin and his team can access the user records and prepare tax returns.
Result: Since its release in 2010 hundreds have created CabSave accounts with many
drivers commenting on how they like the software and how easy it is to use. Recently
other accountants have contacted Cab Accounts to discuss licensing the software for use
with their taxi driver clients.
