4. Diverse AutoCount Modules and Plugin Choices

AutoCount, as a versatile financial tool, not only provides a wide range of standard modules and plugins but also allows for customization according to different customer needs. In this subtitle, we will detail AutoCount's modules and plugins, and how they offer convenience and flexibility to customers.

  • Modules and Plugins: Cornerstones of Customization

In AutoCount, "modules" and "plugins" are two key concepts. "Modules" are pre-built collections of functionalities covering various areas such as finance, inventory, sales, purchase, and human resources. "Plugins" are additional function extensions that can be added to cater to specific customer requirements for precise business processing.

  • Benefits of Modules: Integrated Standard Functionality

AutoCount offers over 50 standard modules, each comprising a set of related functions. These modules have been carefully designed and developed to meet the basic business requirements of various types of customers. Whether it's financial accounting, sales management, or human resources, customers can choose the appropriate modules based on their business scale and needs.

  • Benefits of Plugins: Custom Functionality Extensions

In addition to standard modules, AutoCount provides over 100 standard plugins. These plugins can be added based on specific customer requirements to achieve personalized functionality extensions. Since every company's business processes and demands differ, plugins offer a flexible way to meet unique business requirements without the need for extensive custom development.

  • Selective Purchasing: Flexibility and Cost-Effectiveness

AutoCount's modules and plugins are optional, allowing customers to purchase the functions they need based on their business requirements. This selectivity offers dual benefits: first, customers are not forced to buy unnecessary functions, avoiding system bloat and unnecessary complexity. Second, as AutoCount has already developed a wide range of standard modules and plugins, customers can selectively purchase without the need for expensive custom development.

  • Reducing Complexity: Avoiding Unnecessary Complications

Imagine if every customer were forced to use all functions, the system would become very complex, and some functions might not be useful for certain customers. The flexibility of modules and plugins allows customers to choose based on their actual needs, avoiding unnecessary complications and making the system more straightforward and user-friendly.

Through a diverse selection of modules and plugins, AutoCount provides the foundation for customized solutions to customers. Whether it's integrated standard functionality or personalized function extensions, AutoCount meets the business needs of different customers, offering support and convenience for their business development.

5. Freedom to Customize AutoCount Small and Medium-sized Business Accounting System

In this subtitle, we will delve into the characteristics and advantages of AutoCount as a small and medium-sized business accounting system that allows for freedom in customization, and why AutoCount stands out in this regard.

  • Open Customization: Meeting Unique Business Needs

AutoCount offers a unique advantage for small and medium-sized businesses: it allows agents or a company's own programmers to customize the software to fit specific business requirements. This flexibility isn't present in all small and medium-sized business accounting software, but AutoCount is the only one that provides an open approach to customization. This means that users can not only enhance and optimize AutoCount's functionalities but also customize features based on their business needs.

  • Maintaining the Core System: Customization Without Impacting Core Functions

Customization in AutoCount doesn't alter its core system; instead, it enhances and optimizes functions built on it. For example, users can make changes to taxation modules (such as GST or SST), and AutoCount will upgrade these functionalities within its system without affecting the customizations that have been made. This approach ensures system stability and flexibility while meeting the unique requirements of businesses.

  • Agent Customization: Professional Support and Services

For AutoCount users who don't have their own programmers, they can still achieve customization by seeking professional agents. The presence of agents provides customers with professional support and services to help them customize the software according to their needs, without requiring in-depth technical knowledge. Compared to ERP system customization, AutoCount's customization is more cost-effective and efficient.

  • Advantages of Standard Plugins: Time and Cost Savings

One reason why customization in AutoCount is efficient is because it already offers a wide range of standard plugins. These plugins can be fine-tuned and modified, making customization simpler and faster. In contrast, ERP system customization often involves designing and developing from scratch, which comes with higher time and cost requirements. AutoCount's standard plugins significantly reduce the time and cost of customization.

By allowing for freedom in customization, AutoCount provides a powerful tool for small and medium-sized businesses to meet their unique needs. Whether through agents or in-house programmers, users can customize the software to align with their business requirements, resulting in a more efficient and tailored accounting system.

6. Suitable for Diverse Industries - All-in-One Solution

In this section, we will explore AutoCount's multifunctional features and its role as an all-in-one solution for various industries. Regardless of your company's size or the industry it operates in, AutoCount can provide a customized solution.

  • Multifunctionality Across the Board: Meeting Industry Needs

AutoCount's uniqueness lies in its ability to provide a rich array of functionalities, all integrated into a single system. This makes it especially suitable for complex industries, particularly those companies that have both factories, physical stores, and online businesses. Whether you are a small or medium-sized enterprise or a growing business, AutoCount can be your reliable partner, helping you gain a competitive edge in the business arena.

  • Industry-Agnostic: An All-in-One Solution

AutoCount is not just accounting software; it's a platform that offers an all-in-one solution for various industries. Whether you're in the retail, manufacturing, service, or e-commerce sector, AutoCount can cater to your unique requirements. Its functionalities include accounting, inventory management, sales, and purchase, all in one place, eliminating the need to switch between different software, making your work more efficient.

  • Cost-Effective: Multiple Companies, One License

Notably, AutoCount's cost-effectiveness is one of its strengths. A single AutoCount license can be used to manage 3-5 companies under the same owner without additional charges. This streamlines data management among multiple companies, saving costs and resources.

Regardless of your industry or specific requirements, AutoCount can provide a comprehensive solution. Its multifunctionality, all-in-one approach, and cost-effectiveness make AutoCount an ideal choice for small and medium-sized enterprises

7. Scale Up with Cost Efficiency

In this section, we will discuss how AutoCount brings cost savings and efficiency improvements as your business scales up. AutoCount, as a comprehensive accounting software, consolidates diverse industry needs into one platform, creating greater value for businesses.

  • Scaling Up, Reducing Labor Costs

As businesses gradually expand, labor costs often become a significant expense. However, the multifunctionality and integration of AutoCount can significantly reduce labor costs. As your business grows larger, AutoCount can efficiently handle tasks such as accounting, inventory management, sales, and purchase, reducing the reliance on a large workforce.

  • Case Example: E-commerce Solution

Taking our e-commerce solution as an example, it can integrate with all online sales platforms, automating the import and processing of orders. One of our customers used to process around 5,000 orders daily, and with AutoCount, this customer could import all orders accurately in less than an hour. In contrast, traditional manual processing would require hiring 20-30 employees for daily order processing, doubling the labor costs. If we calculate based on an average monthly salary of RM2,500 per employee, using AutoCount's e-commerce solution saves the customer approximately RM200,000 per year.

AutoCount not only transforms the cost issue that comes with business expansion into an advantage but also helps businesses reduce labor costs significantly through efficient solutions.


In business development, the expansion of a company often comes with increased costs. However, AutoCount, with its multifunctionality, integration, and cost-effective solutions, turns business growth into cost reduction and efficiency improvement. Whether your business is growing or has already expanded, AutoCount can create more value for you.

8. Continuous Development to Address Market Demands

In this section, we will discuss how AutoCount continuously develops to meet evolving market demands. For small and medium-sized businesses, ongoing innovation and new product development are key to long-term success.

  • Keen Market Insight

Many small and medium-sized businesses, once profitable, may halt further product development, assuming it comes with high costs. However, AutoCount takes a fundamentally different approach. We are acutely aware of market changes and customer demands, which is why we continually develop new solutions to adapt to the ever-changing business landscape.

  • Flexibly Responding to Industry Trends

For instance, a few years ago, many businesses started transitioning to online sales. In response, AutoCount launched a series of e-commerce solutions, enabling companies to better tap into the online market. During the Movement Control Order (MCO) period, we introduced cloud-based solutions, allowing entrepreneurs to continue their operations from home.

Recently, with an increasing number of businesses demanding cloud-based payroll accounting solutions, particularly those needing self-service features, electronic leave, electronic attendance, and expense reporting, AutoCount responded to market demands by offering corresponding solutions. Additionally, many restaurants have expressed the need for QR code self-ordering, and we swiftly developed the necessary functionality. In the future, we plan to introduce features such as member rewards apps, continuously exploring and developing innovative solutions to adapt to market changes.

  • Continuous Learning and Innovation

In a competitive business environment, small and medium-sized businesses need to keep improving and leverage high-quality software to enhance efficiency. Therefore, continuous learning and developing new products are essential factors. If a company chooses software that is unwilling to innovate further, it may need to change systems as it grows, incurring additional costs and risking data loss. Therefore, selecting software that continually learns and innovates is crucial.


AutoCount maintains a commitment to continuous development of new solutions to meet evolving market demands. We closely monitor industry trends and respond flexibly to customer needs. Through ongoing learning and innovation, we provide small and medium-sized enterprises with a reliable partner that can adapt to future growth in a highly competitive business landscape.
