MyCorbu just got closer to the vision of offering a real solution to the small firm’s need for architectural bookkeeping. All that’s missing is an invoicing solution. (That’s next.)
Architectural Bookkeeping has come to MyCorbu BOOKS, the renamed, paid version of the MyCorbu timekeeping app.
I accidentally started down the path that has led here in 2014. (Here’s the whole story if you are interested.) There is a real unmet need that I experienced firsthand during my architectural career. This was confirmed by a year of interviewing and surveying other firms. I found that the tools that architects use are home made (spreadsheets), generic (not for architects), industry-specific but inappropriate (google ‘architectural accounting’), or all three. In my case Deltek Advantage and a half dozen spreadsheets got the job done, but at a tremendous cost - mostly in wasted time resources.
After I spent a year doing research, I spent 18 months searching for a way to design a solution. In September of 2016 I found Knack. Six months later MyCorbu was launched. That was just over a year ago.
MyCorbu wouldn’t have been possible if I weren’t retired (?) and if technology wasn’t what it is.
MyCorbu BOOKS (formerly called TIME) is temporarily offered for $3/person/month. You can get the timekeeping tools without a subscription.
This is the new Bookkeeping page...
MyCorbu BOOKS is what most architects need - a simple architectural bookkeeping system. MyCorbu lets you get out of the accounting business.
MyCorbu BOOKS is suitable for firms of 1 to 20 people, or more.
You can find out everything there is to know at https://www.mycorbu.com .
The architectural bookkeeping features became available on Monday, May 14th.
