Partner recognition: Movemybooks

Back at Xerocon London in September I was pleased to announce that Movemybooks was the deserving recipient of the UK’s first Add-on Partner award in the category of “Emerging Add-on Partner of the Year” for their groundbreaking data conversion tools.

Sadly, Adrian Pearson was unable to attend Xerocon in person to pick up their award so we arranged for him to stop by our UK office and collect it in person, which I’m pleased to say he did this afternoon.

Movemybooks is going from strength to strength as the demand for automated data conversion from Sage and Quickbooks accelerates in the UK, and it was great to hear from Adrian that they’re on the verge of adding the capability to automatically convert complete financial histories from Sage & Quickbooks straight into Xero in a single shot.

So, if the prospect of hand cranking your own data conversion to Xero is something you’re daunted by or if you just don’t have the time, give Adrian’s team a shout.

Thanks again to Adrian for coming in to meet the UK team today.

Great idea – if the data is clean! Perversely, one of the benefits of migrating to another system is the chance to do some data cleansing, which inevitably requires a fair bit of manual intervention. Sage is notoriously easy to contaminate if as in many cases it has been run by unskilled users.

Hi Chris. Yes, of course, GIGO still applies. We recommend that our customers do a little housekeeping on their data prior to initiating the conversion process. That said, we find that correcting data is much easier once it’s in the more user-friendly Xero software.

@Gayle Thanks, glad you like :)

How Xero tackles technical debt

Technical debt accrues for many reasons. Sometimes as developers, we are pushing to get features out of the door, and speed trumps elegance. Sometimes, technology moves on and choices which were good at the time just don’t age well. Other times we’re working with technology that is new to us and we’re not up-to-date with ...
