It’s great to see our API now being used for solutions designed specifically for our accounting partners. Our latest Network Partner Spotlight Reporting certainly does that. And it’s also the first extension to our Modern Practice initiative.
Spotlight Reporting is an executive reporting tool that analyses the financial data for a business and builds sophisticated reports that are easy to understand. Like Xero, it creates powerful reports, but goes into more detail providing chart galleries, KPI scorecards and a cashflow profiler. You can also run “What If” scenarios such as how a 10% drop in cost of goods sold would impact on the bottom line, as well as add non-financial data to get a broader view of business performance.
Richard Francis of Francis Consulting, a boutique CA firm, saw a need and created Spotlight Reporting as a way to earn new revenue streams; develop closer relationships with clients by being at the heart of their business decisions and provide his team with more interesting work. Over eight years he’s perfected the model and is now ready to share.

The Xero Partner Conference will be the stage for the public unveiling of Spotlight, followed by the release of the software on 1 March to the open market. For the next three months the Spotlight Reporting team will be on the road travelling throughout NZ and Australia, demonstrating the benefits of becoming a Xero + Spotlight Reporting practice.
