    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.

    Time Saved and ease of use

    The ignition platform is easy, efficient and user friendly. The first year I found quite easy to set up and then the years after that have been easier again. Highly recommend if you want to cut down on your invoicing time and share transparency of what is included in your services.

    Time Saved & No Hassles

    PI has really (and I mean really) saved us time in terms of generating proposals. We can now send various options for clients to pay and the biggest benefit is no longer having to chase clients for the big fees owed. Now can concentrate on growing the business.
