Easy to use, web-based + native accounting software.
April 2015: The Goods and Services Tax (GST) in Malaysia brought about a change in retailing making it a legal requirement to issue receipts with every purchase. Larger retailers would weather the change just fine, but small business with little formal procedures would be particularly affected. Heavy accounting software wouldn't be suitable for these small traders and GiveReceipt seeks to plug that gap.
Creating an identity
Professional accounting software is usually very staid. GiveReceipt aims to be more accessible, especially for small sole-traders whose main focus might not be on managing the books. The name itself is comparatively informal, and I created visuals to suit that.
If we were to pare a physical P.O.S. ribbon receipt down to its essence, we’d have a few key ingredients: its form factor, the perforated edge caused by the blade and the light GSM of the stock. The perforation and aspect is something we could take forward as the basis for the identity. We're still dealing with money so the bright teal is grounded with a sensible dark grey/white.
