Payments made easy - A must have for Xero customers

I am new Xero customer. Parakeet is an essential part of my accounting solution. BPAY transactions account for 50% of my suppliers and hence it was essential they could be processed along with the standard EFT payments. Parakeet not only gave me BPAY automation but provided the ability for me to process multi bank account payments within the same database. Implementation was simple, backed up with prompt and experienced support.

Massive Timesaver

We have finally found a solution for automating Accounts Payable and freeing up considerable time within our business. Charles and the team at Parakeet have been so responsive to our requests and feedback, even implementing changes to the software in order to suit the needs of our business. Highly recommend!

Parakeet has freed up so much of my time!

We had been looking for an automated bill payment program for so long, Parakeet ticked a lot of the boxes and wherever they didn't meet a specific need they were eager to find a solution. Correspondence is always quick and helpful, and they are always willing to take on any feedback we have. Highly recommend Parakeet to anyone looking to free up thier time!
