Want or Need in your budget



When we were preparing the public book for household finances we came across a few articles explaining the importance of separating the wants and needs in budgets especially for those who are financially compromised. Separating and creating awareness about actual needs can easily be achieved with bkper.

The importance of MVP

As we've told in a previous post, user feedback is one of the most important aspect of successful SaaS startups. Since it's so important, we should start getting users feedbacks as soon as possible, right?
That's when the MVP - Minimum Viable Product - concept gets in place.

MVP does NOT mean to quickly put a low quality product for users to test it. Your MVP should be strong enough to offer value with high quality, but simple enough to release fast and start iterating over it, based on feedbacks.

Take a look at the first released version of bkper:

Household Finances


Household Finance is a nasty thing we all have to deal with. It is often a time consuming activity and even when we try to get everything right there always seems to be some note or bill missing.

To make things easier for you, bkper prepared a book that will help you save time and get your financial life organized.

Feedback is King

You're probably familiar with the expression Cash is King, which refers to the importance of cash flow in the overall fiscal health of a business. Well, that's true, but, for SaaS companies like ours, feedback is as important (or more) as cash. If we don't have enough feedback, we cannot move on. Feedback drives the product market fit, user engagement (which is our gold), that drives us to investments and, ultimately, revenue.

At bkper, we value every piece of feedback you give us. Every email, contact through our help, comment on social networks or blog, hangout, direct talk and any other kind of interaction is listened and recorded carefully.


We've also configured a contextual survey, by Google Consumer Survey, on the web app, to measure the website satisfaction. So, as soon as you see a small popup like this appearing on bottom right corner, don't be shy to answer! That really help us!

Improved Sharing


A lot of our users mentioned sharing books as having some flaws to it, indicating that it was rather painful to fill out each sharing e-mail and that it was a rather embarrassing experience to send the automated share email to the accountant with just a bare link… 

So we set off to polish up our book sharing and put it into the familiar sharing patterns of nowadays…  

These are the improvements:
