Have you checked out the new business snapshot in Xero? Visit the business tab and you will see it listed at the top.
We think this is pretty smart as it allows you to keep track of a few metrics whilst being easy on the eye. We often stack Xero with reporting apps such as Spotlight that report in much more detail and on many more areas of the business but again in clear, easy to read graphs. This allows you to concentrate on the parts of our reporting that are important to you in a format that works for you rather than traditional accounts. If this is a service you are interested in please get in touch.
