Pixie is built to help small accounting & bookkeeping firms to manage emails, tasks, files and client deadlines all in one place.

See how it stacks up against Trello for accountants and bookkeepers. 

Why should accountants & bookkeepers choose Pixie over Trello?

Let's start by saying, there's plenty of room for more than one task management system in the world of software. Everyone has their own preferences with how they like to work and view their workload.

Every tool brings its own pros, cons and unique capabilities, and we're all good at what we do, however, Pixie is designed specifically for accounting & bookkeeping firms, which means a generic project management tool probably won't be as handy for your practice.

We've taken the guess work out and put together this side by side comparison, to show why Pixie may be the better choice for small accounting & bookkeeping firms:


Managing your tasks and team works best when each member of your team has their own log in to their platform.

We found that pricing per user can encourage small companies to share log-ins to keep costs down, which means you don't get a true overview of how your team are managing with their own workloads.

So, we don't price that way.

We believe in simple pricing and enabling you to get the most out of your platform.

Task management

The nature of your work means that some tasks are recurring. Easily set tasks & jobs to recur on a weekly, monthly or annual basis and never worry about missing them again. If something come up that you don’t want to work on right now, simply snooze the task for a later date and be notified when it next comes up.

You can break down larger jobs and tasks into a series of smaller subtasks and track completion of tasks with our progress bar, work reports and deadline tracking. Start to offload work and get your team members more involved by delegating tasks to them in just a few clicks.
