Jakarta. In an effort to minimize and streamline bookkeeping work, Indonesian cloud-based start-up firm has launched Sleekr Accounting, an accounting solutions mobile app made for companies.
The app — which was previously software-based — also has other features such as cash management, sales and procurement, inventory management and enables users to create financial reports.
The app launched on Android devices in Jakarta on Tuesday (07/02) and its iOS counterpart will be available on Apple's App Store within the next two weeks.
Sleekr's other platform, Sleekr HR, will also be developed into a mobile app by the end of February.
Just like its financial platform, Sleekr HR is Sleekr's answer to human resource management needs and aims to optimize their potential.
With features such as database management, claims management, payroll processing and absence management, Sleekr claims that it is the Facebook of human resource management.
"We want to automate administrative work, so departments like finance and human resources can focus on how to develop their company and improve competency, rather than on administrative work," Sleek's chief executive, Suwandi Soh, said.
According to Suwandi, companies are spending 10 days per month handling payroll and tax work — a time cost that companies cannot always afford — and has a large margin for human error.
Sleekr claims that its apps can cut down time spent on administrative work by 80 to 90 percent.
For Sleekr HR, the platform is made available to all employees who use the software, and allows them to apply for leave and submit their claims through the system.
"In the United States, 4 percent of payroll accounts are wrong. As data grows bigger, so does human error," Suwandi said.
Sleekr launched its initial software in February 2015, and officially launched Sleekr HR software in October 2016, followed by Sleekr Accounting in November.
So far, it has over 10,000 active users on Sleekr HR and more than 5,000 for Sleekr Accounting, with 80 percent of its user base comprised of small and medium-sized enterprises and start-ups.
