Testimonials

Nichola Cariss, Eaton Manor Country Estate

Before moving to Xero Nichola had previously used Sage to prepare the accounts for the Country Estate.  Nichola wanted an accounting solution that would support the way she and the business work regardless of location or type of computer.

Nichola says "The Sage accounting software was only set-up on my computer which meant other partners in the business and our Accountants couldn't easily access the information and this made the whole process more time consuming.  I am now able to access the accounts from anywhere and at any time which makes my job much more flexible and I find that I am able to process the information much quicker."

"Moving from Sage to Xero was a lot easier than I thought and the support that I received from Amy, at Dyke Yaxley, in understanding the new system was invaluable."

"Xero now makes it easier to work with my Accountant.  I can email Amy with a query and she can go online and deal directly with it.  That immediacy is fantastic."

"Xero also makes the information really user friendly and I am easily able to export the information from the software in order to produce cash flow forecasts and monitor performance closely."

Martin Hopley, Finance Manager at Go Green Reprocesses Limited

Martin is the Finance Manager for the GreenEd Limited Group of Companies and previously used Sage before moving to Xero.

Martin says "Sage is a very powerful program but I found it to be slow over a server connection and data corruption seemed to be a big problem, meaning that I couldn't work effectively and efficiently.  When there was a data corruption the program would have to be rebuilt by Sage Support and I wouldn't be able to use our Sage system for a few days, naturally this caused finance down time and the risk of inaccurate data."

"The switch-over to Xero had very little down time, certainly smoother and quicker than when I had to have Sage rebuilt.  Dyke Yaxley ensured that the switch-over to Xero was seamless and supported us through the transition stage, they have always provided the support that our business needs. All the staff at Dyke Yaxley that I deal with are fantastic and are always willing to help."

"Xero has dramatically changed the way I process the company financials.  It has saved me so much time in the way transactions can be processed.  Since switching to Xero, my Finance Department has now gone paperless, with paper trails scanned against each individual transaction on Xero.  Knowing what I know now, I ask myself why didn't I move to Xero sooner!  I would never go back to Sage after using Xero!"
