Managing creative projects via Xero


The creative mind isnt always the most organised one. Thats 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 businesss bottom line - because the better you manage your projects, the more profit you can make. 

But whats that got to do with accountancy?

Well, Xero (the cloud accounting software we use with our clients) doesnt just make for blissful book-keeping, it can also be used to supplement your project management provisions too. Its 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, were perfectly placed to show you the ropes - and whether youre 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

 Xeros 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.

Profitability preview

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 businesss finances. No more waiting until the end of the year to find out if youre in the red or the black - youll 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. Its so simple to use that you might well find your designers and art directors taking an interest!

And the more people in your business with a penchant for profitability, the better for your bottom line
