“Before coming to AAB, we used Sage Line 50 to record our transactions. As a business owner and non-accountant, I found Sage difficult to navigate to obtain the information and reports I needed to manage the business effectively, particularly being out of the office on business much of my time. Our financial administrators were spending more and more time carrying out reports on our jobs status as well as inputting weekly timesheets for 40+ engineers.
I was hesitant about moving to a new system however AAB spent time understanding my business model before demonstrating how Xero and WorkflowMax could benefit me in a number of ways.
AAB’s staff were excellent, spending time with our finance team & engineering staff providing training on the system. AAB’s Xero team provided support when required. They even handled the conversion of my Sage data to Xero so that I have historical data on Xero.
Since implementing Xero and WorkflowMax, as a business we have more visibility of the finances of my business in real time at the touch of a button. We operate from multiple locations and I can now approve supplier invoices and employee expense claims whilst on the move and see who owes us money.
With WorkflowMax, employees are now inputting their own timesheets with Line Managers approving them from their location and allocating material costs to jobs. This means any member of our team can now monitor performance of jobs as they progress along with employee performance and utilisation, no matter where we are in the world.
Xero and WorkflowMax has not only dramatically reduced time spent inputting essential information, but has also given us the real time data required that allows us to function better as a business.”
