The commission-operators within the network will use the CounterBooks’ online general ledger accounting system to control their businesses.  The easy to use accounting system is hosted securely online and with petrol retail specific reports it quickly helps the commission-operator understand how their station is performing against plan. The commission-operator will also benefit from lower costs, save time and improve the accuracy of the data by integrating with the other forecourt systems.

CounterBooks will provide accurate, comparative and real time information which allows informed decisions to be made by the management of Park Garage Group. This will allow Park Garage Group to drive performance and manage risk whilst continuing to innovate as a leading independent fuel and convenience store retailer.

About CounterBooks

CounterBooks was developed in 2001 – 2 and launched on 1st January 2003 as the world’s first on-line full ledger accounting system designed specifically for retailers. CounterBooks was originally developed as a Pro-Retail MS DOS system by a frustrated computer-programmer-turned-retailer who struggled with traditional accounting systems which were not developed for retail businesses. His aim was to provide an easy to use system suitable for a retailer with no accountancy experience while still providing full easily understandable data reporting.
