We had been working with Good Grub for a couple of years, over that time, the busi-ness had grown and changed a lot. At that time, Michael was doing all the book keeping and processing the all the invoices himself, while we completed his VAT re-turns and produced quarterly management accounts.

Michael recognised that to focus on expanding the business and launch a new busi-ness he’d been planning, he needed to make more time & asked ESP to become an outsourced finance function for both the new business & the existing business.

Very quickly we identified that we need to move onto a cloud accounting platform, we moved both businesses onto Xero. The mobile app that comes with Xero revolu-tionised Michael’s life, as he could be out on the road, having made a delivery, he could sit outside the customer’s premises in his van and send off the invoice there & then, saving him lots of time when he got back to the shop or in the evening – he re-ally loved that.

Also completing the book keeping on a weekly basis we were able to keep it much more in real-time than he’d ever had before, he had visibility on what his customers owed him at any point in time & also what he owed out to suppliers.

He now uses Xero as his real platform for doing everything in his business.
