Garbutt & Elliott trusts digital to deliver value

Hilary Dyson from Garbutt & Elliott saw a shift in the way her practice worked with clients once they moved to online accounting. See how Xero is revolutionising their relationships with clients around the world. 

A more efficient way to work

More than three-quarters of firm-based accountants still use spreadsheets sometimes, with nearly a fifth (18%) working on paper ledgers. How much more efficient could those advisors be with digital processes? Here’s how Xero helps to streamline the way you work.

Streamline your workflow

Work faster and more efficiently than ever using advisor tools in Xero. Speed through work on your clients' accounts using tools like cash coding, find and recode, manual journals and the assurance dashboard to increase everyday efficiency.
