The name Banana

In 1989, when the software was ready to be launched, company founder Domenico Zucchetti was only missing one last detail: a name. In the room where Domenico used to do his programming, there were bananas boxes used for the move. The name was Banana therefore born by chance, but over the months and years, the fruit-software combination proved to be very appropriate:

A banana is a very nutritious fruit, easy to eat, and very cheap.
Banana Accounting is a professional, easy-to-use and affordable software.

Furthermore, the unique Banana Accounting name  is also intended to distance the idea of accounting from a complicated and tedious activity.  Banana, since its early years, has been characterised by:

  • Being able to bring people closer to accounting, the pillar of every business. Acquiring this competence allows people to reach their goals, be better prepared to face difficult times and avoid excessive debt. 
  • Simplify and speed up all accounting operations.  The software organises data entry, verifies it and takes care of all calculations, printouts and other operations. Everyone can thus devote more time to their business.

Banana Accounting may arouse curiosity due to its unusual name, but at the same time it is becoming more and more well-known and popular because it simplifies accounting management for both experts and beginners.
