When setting up my business it was clear that we needed a good bookkeeping solution and XERO in terms of software seemed to be it. However, following on from that we needed professionals in the field who could get the most out of this asset and with Laurus we have found that expert.
Through their skills and taking the time to understand our business they have been able to build into our bookkeeping solution the many automated benefits that XERO provides. We have found substantial time savings through while not forgoing quality and accuracy of work through areas such as streamlining of super payments and lodgements of BAS and IAS all of which are automated through XERO.
Also as a reporting tool for the business its great to know that I can call Laurus and get the relevant information quickly and with no hassle at all so that I can spend more time on planning the future direction of the business, rather than wandering around in systems looking for the data that I need.
In short using the skills and expertise of Laurus, and in turn the benefits of XERO, within my business saves us a great deal of time and no doubt has added back capacity to my role and improve productivity. We would absolutely recommend Laurus for bookkeeping requirements

Anybody needing help with Xero Practice Manager, I highly recommend Cassandra. She is well organised, full of intuition, knowledge and handy hints to help you out. I found her session truly worthwhile and very reasonably priced. It was an invaluable experience that probably saved me 50 hours of time just using her knowledge of the program.

I switched our clinic's accounting software to Xero at the first of the year and decided I wanted some help making the transition from our old accounting software. I found Cassandra Scott from Laurus on the Xero forums where she was extremely helpful and we setup an arrangement where I paid her by the hour and in exchange could email her with questions as we proceeded, have her login and review how I was setting things up, etc... Both the decision to use Cassandra and to switch to Xero were great ones! I love Xero, as a small business owner it's making my life a lot easier, and Cassandra helped make the switch as easy and efficient as possible. If you're looking for a great accounting application for your small business, I cannot recommend Xero enough. And if you decide to make that switch, let Cassandra help you get it implemented. She has been a delight to work with and been a terrific asset to our company.

I would like share my great experiences when dealing with Cassandra at Laurus Bookkeeping. In 2010 / 2011, when I was in the early stages of setting up my electrical & solar business, my accountant referred me to Cassandra to help look after my bookkeeping. I knew very little about this back then, and not much more now given that I don't need to know the ins and outs of what Cassandra does. Cassandra efficiently set up the Xero account, all my templates, linked the bank account and set up receipt bank add on. Cassandra does all my BAS work, liaises with the accountant, keeps me updated with Xero add ons and informs me of all other changes that I need to know about. This allows me to not worry about the other stuff and concentrate only on what I do best within my field of expertise. I would highly recommend Cassandra for anyone's business!!

Cassandra is the Xero guru who the Xero experts turn to for guidance. Any situation, any problem, any issue, she has already worked her way through it, and come out of the other end triumphant. She knows Xero inside out and back to front. What Cassandra does not know about Xero could fit on a postage stamp. Further to this Cassandra’s expertise is not limited to Xero, she has a knack for intuitively understanding how Xero add-on solutions work. In fact she seems to have a greater understanding of how the Xero add-on’s work, than some of the providers do themselves!

Being in public practice, I needed a bookkeeper who knew what they were doing, how to do it and could just get in and get it done !! Cassandra is that bookkeeper. Cassandra has a great deal of experience with both MYOB and Xero and her personable but profesional approach means that the work is done on time and on budget, everytime. Highly recommend her for either Xero or MYOB based work.

I have worked with Cassandra on the accounting function for mutual clients for around two years. We are very selective with respect to recommending bookkeepers, and I can say that Cassandra is in the top echelon for us. She looks after the detail level that clients shouldn't be paying us to do or to fix. Her skills give us the confidence to focus on our best value-add services for our clients, and her attention to detail gives clients confidence that their paperwork is compliant. Cassandra's experience in a variety of business environments, and her analytical approach, enable her to go beyond bookkeeping by helping clients to improve their business systems and processes.
