'Perfect for small businesses.  Intuitive and easy to use.  So glad we converted to Xero!'- Sarah, Creative Media Business

'I have been using Xero for the last 2 years.  My bank feeds are automatically imported so my accounts are really easy to reconcile.  I can also use the reporting system to get a real time snapshot of my business whenever I need it.  It's made me feel much more in control of the financial side of my business and appeals to the lazy bookkeeper in me.  Evans & Partners set it all up for me and are always on hand to answer any questions I have - I can't recommend it enough.'  - Hannah, Elephant Grey Ltd
'As a rapidly expanding start-up, our cash-flow is our life-blood, and looking after it carefully means that we have to have great systems to know how much money is flowing in and out of the business at any time.  Xero helps us keep track of everything, and because everything is online, Evans & Partners can give us advice in real time.  Absolutely magnificent, I have no idea how people were able to effectively run a business before Xero came along!' - Haje, Photographic Entrepreneur
