Affecting growth

Mariaan strives to fully understand her clients’ business, in order to accurately partner with, and grow their business. Xero has not only freed up her team’s time, but also allowed her to scale her own business.

The fact that we can set up rules in Xero to auto-allocate transactions, makes the time clerks spend on data capturing a lot less. Without Xero we wouldn't be able to have as many clients as we currently do have.
