But don’t take our word for it, this is
what our clients using Xero have to say…

“Having worked with TW and their Academy software, it’s clear they have consulted with business managers and head teachers when developing Xero for academies.

“It’s easy to use, the training and support has been excellent and whilst the needs of the school are at the heart of the software it’s also been designed to make the annual audit as smooth as possible for the school and auditor alike. Our experience and that of our academy clients has been very positive.”

“Moving our MAC finances across to XfE has been instrumental in enabling us to gain clear, concise accessibility and sight of all the finances across the trust in a matter of minutes instead of days, and all in one place. Our historical MAC data was also transferred into XfE so we have complete financial history from day 1 to view and report on. The in-built functionality means I can view and produce real-time reports in both written and pictorial formats, to quickly capture benchmarks and trend information. A requisition system with sign-off parameters that synchronises with our scheme of delegation has reduced time and paper and are supported with a clear audit trail. Both financial and non-financial detailed data such as income, expenditure, creditors and debtors as well as staff and pupil ratios can be viewed, providing the Senior Management team with greater insight and decision-making capabilities. I would recommend XfE for its ease of use and cost and time-saving benefits and combined with the collaborative expert support from the team at Thorne Widgery has given us peace of mind.”
