In January of 2016, we started Enkel with the dream of transforming the way businesses manage their bookkeeping and accounting functions.
Entrepreneurs ourselves, we realized that managing back office functions too often takes owners away from doing what they love – building and growing the business. So we started Enkel with three things in mind; modern technology underneath, client-centric processes on top, and affordability through and through.
We are so grateful for the support we’ve received these last four years from our clients and partners and wish you all a happy and healthy new year!
Without further ado, here’s a quick recap of what we’ve been up to in 2019!
Our ever-growing team
We started 2019 with 15 team members in our Vancouver office, and 12 team members in our office in Noida, India.
As our client base grew, we hired experienced accounting professionals to join our leadership team, and subject matter experts to manage the day-to-day operations and client needs. We added a payroll team to manage payroll services, and a client success team to handle all customer support issues and inquiries.
Today, we have 23 employees in Vancouver and 22 in India and are excited to see that number grow in 2020.
Working with Not-For-Profit Organizations
We’ve worked closely with several not-for-profit organizations over the last four years to improve accounting processes and financial reporting, allowing them to focus on furthering their purpose and missions.
We partnered with several organizations to host events and webinars to share our knowledge with the not-for-profit community.
- Keela – Capacity Conference
- Net2Van – The Digital Non-Profit Conference
- Charity Village & The Good Partnership – The Small Non-Profit Podcast
- Charity Village – Webinar: How to simplify your non-profit’s year-end process
- Kobalt Security – Webinar: Foundations of Cyber Security for Non-Profits
People & Culture
As we’ve grown, we’ve focused on building a culture rich in collaboration and respect for our clients, partners, and team members. Not only have we had a number of team building activities, but we engaged in a number of initiatives that help us give back to the community. From fitness challenges and team lunches to volunteering and blood drives, here are some of the activities we did together this year!
Volunteering in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side
Team Blood Donation
Holiday Care Packages for the Community
Curling at the Vancouver Curling Club
Spin at RIDE Cycle Club
Bootcamp at David Lam Park

We couldn’t be more excited about 2020. The name of the game this coming year is process improvement, simplification, and efficiency. We’ve got a number of projects coming that promise to make working with Enkel even better. As always, we welcome your feedback and look forward to being your back office partner now and in the future.
