Why startup business Guidekick loves Xero

Meet co-founder Mark Paddon. Their mission is transform the way people experience museums. They wanted software to transform their accounting too.




Guidekick is an interactive mobile guide that brings museums to life. Design and user-experience is really important to them.

When it came to managing the finances, the accounting package they started out with turned out to be a bit of a nightmare.

They soon singled out Xero as having what they were looking for. Switching was easy and Mark quickly found that Xero began to do the work for them as it identified trends in the information they were entering.

“We recognised the quality in Xero,” says Mark. “It’s modern, intuitive, sleek, designed well, and it’s simple.”


“It’s great to have the mobile app. You can check on numbers, invoicing and expenses when you’re out and about or travelling a lot.”
