Overhauling our finance system during lockdown, are we mad? | Difrent | Difrent

Going the whole hog

Steve and I have a great working relationship, we can (and often do) chat numbers for hours. It was during one of these conversations that we had the idea of going the whole hog — relying a lot less on our accountants, bringing all of our Finance in-house, and implementing a new all-encompassing Finance system.

Implementing new systems

We implemented Xero at the beginning of April. There were a few tedious weekends of data entry (to get our data to mirror that of our accountants), and a lot of reading of the manual, and I was ready to run the first payroll!

Final thoughts

So, would I recommend implementing new systems remotely (in the middle of a lockdown)?
