Autobooks is an intelligent, cloud-based, small business accounting platform that automatically integrates bank accounts with financial tools that speed cash flow, reconcile accounts, and accelerate growth.
“We are excited to announce our partnership with Autobooks,” said ChoiceOne Bank Chief Operating Officer Adom Greenland. “We recently announced our partnership with HT Mobile Apps as the first Bank in the country to offer Plinqit to customers, which is a fun and unique savings application. Our partnership with Autobooks continues our move into technology, this time with small businesses.”
“ChoiceOne has been an ideal partner for Autobooks,” said Autobooks CEO Steve Robert. “As a Michigan based company we were thrilled to partner with a local community bank like ChoiceOne. Their team has been very supportive and the small business customers in West Michigan are a perfect fit for Autobooks.”
Autobooks is the first fully integrated payments and accounting platform for small businesses that is delivered through ChoiceOne Bank’s online banking. It is exclusively designed for businesses to integrate banking, accounting, and invoicing easily and seamlessly.
“Small business owners want to spend their valuable time growing their business, not doing accounting and invoicing,” said Greenland. “Autobooks, provided within our online banking, provides our customers advanced accounting and invoicing tools that save time and money. Many small business customers have already replaced expensive software like QuickBooks with Autobooks and are thrilled with the service and integration. Nearly every customer that tries Autobooks has made the switch, the reception has been outstanding.”
With Autobooks provided by ChoiceOne. payment processing for invoices is 1.99%, which includes payments made by credit card. Currently, ChoiceOne Bank is offering Autobooks free of a monthly charge for 12 months so small business customers can try it risk free. Small business owners interested in Autobooks can call ChoiceOne at 888.775.6687 and learn more at choiceone.com/autobooks.
ChoiceOne has taken the lead in offering customers financial technology with mobile banking, mobile deposits, innovative payroll card solutions, online loan applications, online account openings and recently launched Plinqit – a digital mobile savings tool. Autobooks will now combine banking, invoicing, and accounting into a single platform so business customers can do everything they need, without the hassle – in one convenient and secure place during their online bank experience.
“As the local community bank, we work hard to support our customers as well as our entrepreneurs and small business owners,” said Greenland. “Pursuing innovative strategies by partnering with Michigan fintech companies allows us to offer our customers the best technology along with our personalized local service. Autobooks is another innovative small business that fits with ChoiceOne’s personal, business and community goals. We look forward to a long-lasting partnership with Autobooks and a rewarding experience for our business customers.”
