Manage your finances and accounting, without being an expert

It was my first time managing a company and professional finances. I was initially quite nervous about the accounting aspect. I imagined it being fairly complex, given that I had no specific expertise in the field. But tools like Dougs and Qonto enabled me to embrace my role as entrepreneur with peace of mind. In particular, I was able to deposit my capital quickly and easily thanks to Qonto.

As soon as I complete a new payment, I immediately attach the receipt associated with the transaction, such as an invoice or a sales receipt. I also add a comment, especially for business lunches. Then I add an expense category.

Once all the information is entered into Qonto, I wait for it to be uploaded to Dougs. Then, all that is left for me to do is validate the transactions. You could say that this integration has really boosted my level of satisfaction. I was already very satisfied with Qonto from the outset, especially compared to the conventional banks I use for my personal finances. This integration has certainly raised the value of both tools up a notch.

Since the integration, I spend just a short time in Qonto to prepare my accounts. Before the integration, I had to re-enter the invoice in Dougs manually. I would lose time looking for the invoice, refiling it, then re-entering the comment. Today, this information is uploaded instantly. While I still spend some time in Qonto to prepare my accounts, I spend less time in Dougs. Today, this task is far less time consuming.

It’s true that by having to manually enter my information twice, I increased my chances of having input errors. It comes down to data security. My financial information is always consistent. I find the same data, comments and documents in both tools, and I feel reassured.
