Great Add-on!

After the initial set up, it's a great time saver when preparing management accounts. Scott (customer service) has also been incredible (and quick) with answering queries!

I have been using Xero for 5 years now and can say this is the best app I have used to integrate xero with excel for management accounts. So easy to use, it has saved me hours of work!

Fantastic Product, Excellent Support

Am using this to create bespoke management accounts for a number of clients. Not only is the Add-In ridiculously intuitive and simple to use, on the occasion that I've had a technical query the support has been lightning fast (issue raised and successfully resolved within 10 minutes!) Have used DataDear in the past and this beats the pants off it in terms of both stability and technical support (even before DD was acquired by Intuit). Can't recommend highly enough.
