Emmental farm women are super
successful with their "Burechorb"

The "Bärner Burechorb" stands for sustainable products and is riding a wave of success. For years, the cooperative has been using CashCtrl for its accounting.

It almost doesn't get any more regional and sustainable than this: In 1995, five women farmers in Emmental founded a community of interest; in 2013, the cooperative "Bärner Burechorb" was formed, now with 17 women farmers. The cooperative members sell local products from their farms on a sideline basis in the store and, above all, via the burechorb.ch website.

In the lovingly designed online store, consumers can order, for example, the "Blib gsung Böxli", various gift baskets or a range of specialties such as the "Anke-Blüemli", Emmental chips or herb oil with just a few mouse clicks.

"In the Corona year 2020, we achieved a new sales record, and this after the store had to be closed for over two months in the spring," says Peter Moser, who serves as treasurer for the cooperative. Companies that were unable to hold their Christmas lunches because of the lockdown sent their employees a selection from the Burechorb range home instead.

In general, he said, things are looking up. "We've noticed a steady increase in demand since the start of the cooperative. The farmers do not use preservatives, and the products also have a strong local character: this is increasingly appreciated," says Moser.

Many services, good value

The increase in orders leads to greater expense in accounting. Over 1,000 invoices were issued and sent in 2020. The Burechorb treasurer is happy to handle the cooperative's financial management via the CashCtrl cloud solution.  

"Uncomplicatedly issuing quotations, delivery bills and invoices and sending them by e-mail, as is possible in the Pro version of CashCtrl, makes life easier. I consider the offer to be good value for money, given the many services it offers," concludes Moser.

He adds that the cooperative also uses the Swiss business software to create evaluations and analyze business figures. "The fact that you can store VAT accounting in CashCtrl, for example, is another advantage."

Saving time through efficient functions

For posting bank account movements, Moser uses the option of loading camt files from e-banking into CashCtrl and then processing them accordingly in the system. Thanks to this function, he says, a lot of time can be saved and errors avoided.

"What I also like is that, unlike other providers, the application is not rigid, but can be set up individually to suit one's own needs without much effort. What's more, I can access the program anywhere I have Internet access. That rounds off the offer," says Moser.
