Problems and issues faced prior to implementing Xero
Elliott Scott were using another cloud system called Kashoo which was functionally very poor, and we saw lots of advantages with Xero – bank reconciliation, ease of use, reporting, interfaces etc.
Wish-list and selection process, why did Elliott Scott opt for a cloud based solution?
The decision was all about the ease of use and reporting, coupled with integration to our bank.
We were keen on a cloud based system as we needed our teams to access the systems easily from any location and had made the decision as a business to move away from a server infrastructure.
The solution and why Xero was selected
We knew Xero was a market leader, well priced, it was by far the most accessible and easy to use. Simple to transition. Skills and support were available across the globe.
Highlights and accomplishments of working with Fresh Accounting and the results achieved by moving to Xero
The bank integration allows us to be far more up to date with both cashflow, debtors and management accounts.
We have an excellent debt collection process driven by reminders
in Xero which is 100% up to date due to bank integration.
Cashflow reporting is key and we can get all our debtors and creditors quickly to build a cashflow picture, which means we are in total control of the current and projected position.
We can now publish management accounts within 7-10 days of the month end.
Fresh assisted in the transition to Xero and have help us achieve the above with their ongoing support. They are pro-active, highly skilled in Xero and available add-ons. They also build a consolidation process for us using other tools.
