Why all of our clients receive an app advisory service

Xero App Advisory for your E-commerce store

The choice of apps available for business owners can be mind-boggling, so to make it easier we provide app advisory. Every process can be run through a myriad of options, ranging from free to astronomical expense. Making the right choices can make a real difference to your bottom line, saving you both time and money, and we can make sure you use those that will make the most difference to you.

At Unicorn, we offer all our clients an app advisory service. By pairing you with the right tools for your business we ensure your business is making the most of the technology available. Tailored to your business, we look at what can genuinely help you, rather than giving generalised advice.

What is an app advisory service?

An app advisory service begins by looking at what you are already using. As Xero Gold partners, we will help you maximise the level at which your apps talk to Xero, automating processes wherever possible. Once we see how you currently operate, we will take the time to learn about your business, so our advice is truly tailored to you and based on your insights. Then we will recommend app choices that work for your business and its budget.

How does the app advisory service help me?

By switching to the apps recommended in our app advisory service you will discover profit and efficiency you were previously unaware of. By using this service, areas such as cash flow will be easily accessible, so you’ll avoid any unpleasant surprises.

Apps can be a key part of making your business successful. They can cut the administrative time, provide up to the minute information and ensure you can reach your data anywhere in the world. Cut back on the time you spend on these tiresome tasks and you’ll have more time to grow your business and more freedom from your desk. It’ll also provide you with insights that would previously have gone unnoticed. By getting your systems to talk to each other you’ll ensure you see first-hand the trends and information you need to act on.

Xero currently integrates with more than 700+ apps, making your systems flow seamlessly with minimal or without any need for your input. These can help across the board in your business, but we will show you the right apps for you to improve your project management, payroll, inventory and much more. We’ll show you how to use technology to manage your business relationships and reduce the time you or your staff are spending on paperwork.

The numbers

Nick Houldsworth from Xero explained last year that clients who maximise their usage of cloud apps are growing their net profitability 30% faster than those who aren’t. Our app advisory service will ensure you are part of that statistic. The UK is the third largest e-commerce market in the world, so let us help you grow your business to its full potential.

New to Xero?

It’s possible you’re not yet using Xero. 49% of new Xero clients switch from an alternate brand. The primary reasons for this shift are the lack of technology and industry knowledge. Xero is at the forefront of technology and as such is the perfect place for your e-commerce business to flourish. If you are looking to switch to Xero please contact us about our Xero conversions and we’ll have you up and running in no time.

Prepare for growth

Even if app advisory seems unnecessary for the scale of your business, consider this – it is easier to adjust to new systems now than to wait till you are at breaking point. By ensuring you are maximising the technological benefits now you are future-proofing your business. With systems already in place, growth will be a joyful process, as it should be, not a time when you are clamouring to lighten the load. It will also be easier to rely on outside parties, such as freelancers and us. With clear systems in place, those who need the information can log in and have it at their fingertips with no need to embark on a time-consuming email relay.
