Xero

Gilligan Sheppard embrace Xero to enable our clients to have a choice and find a solution that works for them. We want to create efficiencies that we can pass onto our clients. By using Xero, we can work alongside our clients, add value and be true partners in their business.

To ensure you get the best out of Xero for your business. We help our clients with Xero setup, conversions; add-ons, training and reporting for all your requirements.

Client feedback is always the best part of the setup and conversion to Xero. Our clients experience has been that they have received more than expected:

“With the help of Gilligan Sheppard, the change to Xero went smoothly. We were fully supported whilst we came to grips with the new software and we always received prompt responses to queries. Xero saves me time on a daily basis and is easy to use – I recommend it to everyone I speak to.”
Gail Kingston, Administration Manager, Citymed Medical Limited.

 

“Xero is a godsend! The more I use it, the less I have to do. My previous accounting software is in the rubbish as I’ve realised I don’t have to be a Microsoft Technician to operate Xero. As with anything worthwhile, there is a minimal initial cost; setup, linking to my accounts, tuition at the Gilligan Sheppard offices and a monthly subscription fee. Gilligan Sheppard came to my home to make sure I had a grasp of the system and they provide help over the phone.
It’s a great system – the future in accounting is already here.”
Richard Hood, Universal Flooring Limited, Centreline Properties Ltd.

Xero is a great tool to help run your business, especially when it is set up the right way. Talk to us to find out how to convert (move) and set up your data from your existing system.
