Managing creative projects via Xero
The creative mind isn’t always the most organised one. That’s why, in a creative business, you most likely have a team of dedicated project managers and account directors working alongside your star studio talent.As you well know, these roles have a fundamental impact on your business ’ s bottom line - because the better you manage your projects, the more profit you can make.
But what’s that got to do with accountancy?
Well, Xero (the cloud accounting software we use with our clients) doesn’t just make for blissful book-keeping, it can also be used to supplement your project management provisions too. It’s compatible with a number of slick add-on applications that help you track jobs, assign tasks and record time, helping you keep your studio as profitable as possible.
As the leading Xero accountant in Birmingham, we’re perfectly placed to show you the ropes - and whether you’re already using Xero or not, we can show you how to get the very best out of the software and its project management add-ons.
Here in advance though, are a few of the benefits you can expect:
Time is money
Xero’s project management add-ons allow you to track time in multiple ways - against specific team members, departments, task types and of course by project. This gives great insight into how your business makes its money - and as the saying goes, knowledge is power.
Using add-ons like WorkflowMax, your sales invoices and purchase orders can be pushed straight through to Xero - helping to build a real-time picture of your business’s finances. No more waiting until the end of the year to find out if you’re in the red or the black - you’ll be in the know all year round.
Fun to use
Our definition of fun might be different to yours, but we honestly think Xero and its project management plug-ins make admin less of a chore and more of an enjoyable task. It’s so simple to use that you might well find your designers and art directors taking an interest!
