CounterBooks and RCS (Retail Consulting Services) Announce Partnership
Experts in fuel and convenience retail accounting

CounterBooks, a leading online retail accounting management suite for the fuel and convenience industry, announced today that it is partnering with RCS. RCS is one of the UK’s leading accountancy service providers to the fuel and convenience industry. This partnership brings two market leading firms together, who are committed to helping fuel and convenience retailers thrive across the UK.

RCS has a nationwide team of senior accountants with extensive industry experience who cover the length and breadth of the UK, from Scotland to the Channel Islands. The CounterBooks’ cloud based system allows for improved communication and collaboration between RCS and their clients, as the system can be accessed from anywhere with an internet enabled device such as a laptop, tablet or mobile phone. This reinforces RCS’s focus on developing meaningful relationships with their clients which plays a crucial role in helping to improve the retailer’s performance.

CounterBooks’ online retail accounting management suite strongly supports RCS’s value of improving retailer performance. This is implemented through automating the accounting process (EPOS and electronic invoices) and in providing accurate, business specific and real time reporting. These features allow retailers, with the support of RCS, to make informed decisions, thereby driving the performance of their fuel and convenience businesses.

This cooperation will offer fuel and convenience retailers the combined benefit of a local and highly experienced retail accountant with immediate online access to the CounterBooks’ market leading retail accounting management suite which is specifically designed for fuel and convenience retailers.

John Roberts, Managing Director, CounterBooks said ‘We are very excited about our partnership with RCS and look forward to working with them to support fuel and convenience retailers in improving business performance. Our first joint project includes an interface from the Micros Prism 2 BOS and I am sure this will be the first of many that we will do together.’

Mark Royle, RCS said “We are delighted to form this collaboration with Counterbooks. Quality Information is key to the successful retail operation and with the seamless flow of data from EPOS through to the Accounting System helps to make this information available in a timely fashion and leaves the retailer free for operational decisions. CounterBooks together with the expert accounting knowledge of RCS can only add value to a business”

About CounterBooks
CounterBooks was developed in 2001 – 2002 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. Last month, Counterbooks was shortlisted in The Association of Convenience Stores Technology Showcase.
