The History of ECOUNT Inc.
A Solution for Small Businesses
Many small businesses fail to succeed even after experiencing a promising start. While there may be a variety of reasons behind the same end result, many of them can be linked to a lack of organizational structure and inadequate resource allocation. Due to the nature of a small business, many business owners find it difficult to manage their cash flow, inventory, and human resources with a clearly developed plan for the future – despite the fact that these are the core of operations. Why? Oftentimes, business owners cannot clearly see the current state of their business and know how to respond because they do not have access to proper forecasting tools. ECOUNT Inc.’s founding members felt that there needed to be a better way to manage a small business and systemize operations. Our team found that small businesses would stand a better chance if they had the proper management tools and resources. As a result, ECOUNT Inc. decided to develop a system that would provide small businesses with a solution.
We wanted to create an affordable and flexible business management system that could not only provide small businesses with the tools they needed during inception, but one that they would be able to use for years to come. And so, the challenge began
When we started in 1999, we developed one of the first cloud-based ERP systems available to small businesses in South Korea. The onset of a cloud-based ERP software revolutionized the way businesses approached ERP systems.
With the use of a cloud-based system, we could provide a different ERP software. As a result, we have been able to provide
- An affordable ERP software with transparent pricing
- A standardized system that is adaptable to many industries
- A system that can respond and adapt to market changes
- Accessible from desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones anywhere in the world
- A system that includes all of the capabilities that our clients need
Our users are able to manage accounting, purchasing, sales, production, and human resources within a single software. The benefit of a standardized program is it lowers the cost of maintaining the system and the cost of implementation. A new subscriber can configure the program in a couple of hours and be able to gain business insights in a short amount of time. As we continue to improve the program and release new features, current users will enjoy the use of those features at no additional cost.
Expansion to Global ERP Market
After reaching a level of system standardization, we decided to begin providing our system in multiple languages. In 2012, we formally expanded into the English and Spanish-speaking markets with the opening of our U.S. office. In 2013, we expanded into the Chinese and Vietnamese markets. Currently, our program is supported in Korean, English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, and Vietnamese. As a result, each individual user is able to designate which language they will see when they access the program. As we expand into new markets, our team will continue to further improve our features in order to accommodate to the requirements of different countries and governments.
A Better ERP
We strive to provide small and midsized businesses with the management tools they need to increase efficiency and profitability. Our goal is to help business owners create a solid foundation for a successful future. We are committed to anticipating the needs of our users and evolving business environments. Thus, our journey in program development and standardization continues. We want current and prospective users to be able to count on a program that can not only satisfy the needs of their business, but ultimately provide them with peace of mind.
