Improving accounting data accuracy with Fooman Connect: Xero

Since using Fooman Connect: Xero, clothing and lifestyle brand Afura has seen a huge increase in data accuracy and been able to focus on growth – not accounting admin. Here’s what Victor, Afura’s Founder, had to say about using Fooman Connect.

Why We Chose Fooman Connect: Xero

I researched the alternatives to connect Magento and Xero. I first tried another tool but it wasn’t a great experience and I didn’t get the results I was expecting. So I was really happy when I found the Fooman extension and it worked exactly as I wanted it to. There’s a seamless integration between Magento and Xero – it’s like they are one!

We saw a huge increase in our accuracy of the data after using the Fooman extension. It imports exactly as it should, we don’t have to worry about any copy / paste errors when moving the information over.

Time Savings

Before buying the Fooman Xero: Connect subscription extension, we had to manually transfer sales information from Magento to Xero. We knew it wasn’t the right way to run a business. We were quite busy then, and it was only going to get busier. We had between 50-200 invoices per month and it used to take us 1-2 minutes per invoice.

It was a very time consuming job sucking up to 7 hours every month and we were taking risks in the accuracy of our data doing it manually. As our business grew, we knew that this number would just increase over time with the number of invoices and customers we have.

Exporting our orders is now a small once a week job and we’ve been able to systemise our work. It saves time and allows us to focus on the things we should be doing to grow our business. Now that we have the extension set up, we don’t even have to think about it. The extension grows with us as our business grows.

Quality Code and Reliable Support

As a developer myself, the quality of code in this extension is superb and you can customise it to fit your needs. The supporting documentation and setup process is straightforward to get up and running within 1-2 hours, even if you’re not a developer. The documentation is complete and thoughtful. If you follow the documentation, you’ll get it. It’s all in there.

It was especially helpful to be able to speak directly to the developer of the extension. Kristof solved my questions / issues from a developer perspective and a business perspective – a rarity in this space, but so valuable.

Support was always really great, even considering the time zone difference (I’m in Amsterdam and Fooman is in New Zealand), there was always a quick response from someone at the team.
