Automated, unlimited, daily backup and business continuity service for your Xero, Xero Practice Manager and WorkflowMax. Data is backed up to NZ data centres, plus optional sync to your own datacenter or local PC/Server or a common cloud storage provider such as DropBox, Box, GoogleDrive, OneDrive


We believe that everyone should have uninhibited access to all of your data stored in 'the cloud’, Xero being no exception - Xero Blue and Xero Practice Manager.

We provide the tools to empower you, the owner, access to your valuable financial data stored in Xero and the means to repatriate your data back to a location of your choosing. You will not only be complying with Xero’s ‘Terms of Use’, but also local tax regulations and compliance when it comes to your data sovereignty.

Xero users and Xero partners also use Control-C to safeguard against “uncontrollable” events which will ensure that their businesses can keep operating.

Xero partners can also subscribe on behalf of their clients as an in-house solution for ‘peace of mind’ and a ‘near data-insurance solution’, while others such as MSP's or CSP's use Control-C as a value-add service, offering an incremental revenue opportunity.

Backing up your financial data is only 'Part A', we also provide the ability to read, search, export, print, reconstitute your financial accounts and even raise invoices in the event of access being lost to Xero for any reason - you will also want to get to your 'Accounts Receivable' as a minimum to keep your business alive.

The risk of data loss is real, whether through cyber attacks or single or multiple ‘3rd party' service outages that are not under the direct control of Xero such as AWS or infrastructure.

As a business owner, you are solely responsible for maintaining copies of your data entered into Xero services.

Here are some of our Key features

  • Automated, Unlimited backups, forever of all your Xero Accounting data

Providing peace of mind

control is easy to use and reliable. I recommend it to all Xero users. It is a small price to ensure the security of your data, and security of your data is the only way to ensure business continuity.

Very valuable Xero backup service

Super easy to use, low cost, and valuable backup solution for Xero. We use Control-C for one-time backups for our Xero organisations and the support team is always super response and helpful.

Our best monthly investment?

We've used ContolC for many years and, given the modest cost, it's possibly the best investment we make every month for peace of mind!
