Ignition + Xero

Ignition takes care of your client, invoice, payment and reconciliation processes once your proposal is accepted—creating your clients in Xero, marking their invoices as paid and even reconciling payments. What’s not to love?

And when Ignition and Xero Practice Manager unite, the results are outstanding. Import your client records, automatically create new jobs once a proposal is accepted, and sync updated client information.

Expand your team’s productivity, keep them motivated to do their best work, and streamline workflows, budgets and milestones. It’s power at your fingertips.

Features you’ll love

  • Ignition creates a new client record in Xero or matches it with one that already exists. So no duplicate records.
  • Each service line in your Ignition proposal is translated to a line item on the invoice. Now that’s a real life-saver.
  • Flexible fee schedules. On acceptance. Recurring. And on completion.
  • Gain deeper business insights by categorizing your revenue data from invoices generated in Ignition.
  • Get a clear picture of service revenue performance by linking services to a specific chart of accounts and customizing them at a proposal level.

Excellent addition to Xero

A great addition to our team and work. Enjoy the ability to customise proposals as well as the templates for a good start. Has saved as a lot of time and effort. Would definitely recommend.

Practical App

My old process was a Word document, with text highlighted for manual personalization, and cloud signatures obtained via Adobe Sign. Obviously, while this wasn't excessively time-consuming, it was prone to error/omission and actually did take unnecessarily long. I received friendly, helpful support onboarding in Ignition, and I appreciate that the subscription comes with standard T&Cs that align with CPB Canada's, as well as out-of-the-box base services that align with best practices and recommendations within the industry - but also with excellent customization options. Ignition also seems receptive to feedback based on my user experience; eg, I have raised the suggestion to allow for a more automated change order process. I look forward to seeing how Ignition evolves in the future! While I am still in my first year and in process of onboarding clients as their contracts come up, I feel confident recommending Ignition to other practices, both small (like me) and large!

Income on Auto-Pilot

This app is a must for professional services firms. While we see the best value for recurring invoices/SLAs/FPAs/retainers, it's also good for one off jobs. The direct debit feature also removes the need to chase payments.
