Just what I needed

I need to produce a financial report that can't be done exactly as required in Xero and so I used to have to type on a TB to Excel. Then there was a change, then another change etc! This add-in has solved my problem. Once I have set up the report linked to Excel, It will save me so much time. Also, thank you Scott. I had a query that Scott helped me with... over Zoom not just a chatbot!

Exactly what we needed!

We use the add-in to bring account data into our reports from across multiple entities.Saves so much time and eliminates errors that used to arise when data was changed in Xero. The support has been great too with Scott always getting back to us in a timely manner. Don't know how we managed without it!

Brilliant Add-in

We just started using Scott Add-in and it has already reduced the amount of time we dedicate to month-end reporting by two days. We use Scott Add-in to consolidate cash flow reporting on multiple entities in Xero. The Add-in quickly and accurately rolls up all our entities in one Excel spreadsheet. Looking forward to expanding our reporting abilities now that we found Scott's Add -in. We have been evaluating different apps for over 4 years and Scott Add-in is exactly what we needed!
