100% Xero

Chris Reid‘s practice first dipped its toes in the world of online accounting a while back when instead of following their default route of advocating Sage, he managed to persuade his staff and a small group his clients to try out Xero.

Last month Chris informed Sage that he would not be renewing his Sage Accountant Partner programme membership next March, and his team is now finishing off the process of flipping all his clients across to Xero.

Chris is a smart accountant running a forward looking, progressive practice. As well as gaining the efficiencies of servicing all his clients online, he’s also seen a significant uptick in new client enquiries since he modified his Xero Partner Directory entry to reflect his practice’s now total focus on Xero.

Smart indeed.

It’s great to see Accountants un-plugging from traditional desktop software and opening their minds to working in the cloud.

Well done Chris and all the best for your practice.
