DataDear service

I have found Datadear a pleasure to deal with. The add in went from my tool bar and DataDear did all they can to get it working again. Soli service and integration is seamless to Xero.

This is hands down the best excel add-in and Xero app I have ever used. Datadear's excel add-in has enabled me to easily create automated reporting templates, that are updated by opening an excel template and simply logging into the add-in, this has saved $$$ in admin time to create monthly management accounts. It really shows that datadear have invested a lot of time into creating clean and easy to manipulate tables of data, I've been able to easily create pivot tables without the need to transform the data first. And with the latest version of Excel, I can now create beautiful rich data types all by using the datadear reports. Not only is their excel add-in a beast, but they are also a seriously awesome company to work with, on and off I have worked with Carl for around 2 years now, he really understands the information that small business owners and accountants alike need to get out of Xero, and goes beyond to try and help you figure out a solution to a problem. Oh, and it's extremely cost-effective as well! Kepp up the good work guys!

We'd spent around 6 months looking at different options for consolidating reports out of multiple Xero entities. All the ones we found were too rigid, and didn't give us enough flexibility for tailored reporting, until we came across DataDear. Pulling all the data back to excel now gives us the scope to do this, and at affordable prices We've managed to create some quite brilliant MI out of it! The journal tool is also sooooooo helpful Thanks DataDear
