As a new business with an innovative travel trailer product, Airstream Components
were keen to set up their business with systems and solutions that would grow with them.
Their key priority when it came to accounting software was to balance cost with functionality – and the cost savings, user-friendly interface, and accessibility to training resources offered by cloud-based accounting software made Xero an obvious choice.
As Xero certified experts, the Bentleys team were able to assist Airstream with the setup of the system – including advising on ongoing synchronisation with an existing payroll system. As both the Airstream and the Bentleys teams have instant and real-time access, ongoing tasks such as lodging taxation documents can be done in record time with minimum interruption. From a cash flow perspective, Airstream receives advance notice on their tax debts and therefore they can better forecast and strategically plan for the outlay.
“The Xero accounting software is so simple even a trained engineer can make sense of it!” said Mike Temple, CEO of Airstream Components. “Now, when we travel overseas we can stay on top of all day to day and month end work as if we were at the office, including creating new accounts and posting to journals. It has really saved us a lot of time and effort.”
