What Does 6 Years of Human-Assisted Automation Look Like?

Aug 5, 2021 9:00:00 AM

A lot happens in a year, and this last year has been eventful, to say the least. We’ve changed the way we work, witnessed big investments in accounting firm competition, and joined forces with groundbreaking technology partners to create an even better automated accounting experience for firms of all sizes and specialties. Yes, it’s been pretty wild!

Still, with all the craziness of the last 365 days, we’re still here. And what’s more, we’re here to celebrate! 

July 27 marked our sixth anniversary, and we’re over the moon about what we’ve been able to accomplish with and for the accounting industry. We’ve raised almost $50 million in funding, created more than 450 resources to support our Accounting Firm Partners and the general accounting audience, and we’re proud to say that we’ve helped more than 150 firms provide better accounting services to their collective 4,000+ clients.

Take a look at some of our milestones so far:

We’re Inspired by Accounting Professionals

To be fair, these milestones only scratch the surface of what we’ve been able to achieve. We’ve also worked hard to obtain our SOC 2 Type 1 and SOC 2 Type 2 attestations, making Botkeeper one of the only automated accounting solutions (if not the only automated accounting solution) to achieve such rigorous standards. We were named to the Inc. 5000 at number 850 in 2020, and most recently we were named a 2021 Top Place to Work by the Boston Globe. 

But we should clarify something: we don’t do it for the accolades or bragging rights—we do it for our clients and the accounting community.

Honestly, we couldn’t be more grateful for our Botkeeper clients—from those who have been with us since the beginning to those who are just beginning their journeys toward automation by checking out Botkeeper. 

We started this company with an idea in mind that we could transform accounting for the better, that technology can make an accountant’s life easier. We’re fortunate to have tapped into an audience that was hungry for change and welcomed new ideas. That’s what keeps us going!


Botkeeper Culture Is Committed to Accounting Firm Success

We’d be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge the people who work hard on a daily basis to make it all happen. We’re talking about our dream team of more than 340 dedicated professionals: accountants, engineers, sales executives, marketing pros, managers, and everyone else who helps to keep the machine running. 

Our Botkeeper family spans the U.S. from coast to coast, plus we have an amazing team in the Philippines and a handful of other incredibles scattered across the globe. They make Botkeeper what it is: a living, evolving creature that adapts to change, overcomes obstacles, and carves new paths forward into the unknown. They believe in the Botkeeper mission, and we can proudly say that everyone at Botkeeper is committed to achieving our goals. 

They live and breathe our company values of Go the Extra Mile, Go Hard, Continually Improve, Be a Caring Leader, and Do What's Right. Just take a look at this brand new video we put together that offers a glimpse into our company culture:

In short, our people are amazing! ❤️


Thank You for 6 Years!

So with that, we say a very heartfelt thank you to all our friends in the accounting industry, our family and all who have supported us along the way, our financial investors who believe in us and what we’re doing, and most of all, thank you to our Accounting Partners who have made this all possible!


Cheers to six years!  bothead google
