If farming is your life’s work and you are struggling to make sense of the numbers then a look at the Figured on Farm & Xero combination will be a good investment.

Having recently attended a meeting with key people from Figured and several respected rural advisers and bank managers, along with a number of other accountants specialising in farming matters, I came away impressed with the vision Figured have for the farming industry as a whole.

Unlike many software developers these people speak and understand our language and they are rapidly demonstrating that with their product. You don’t need to be an accountant to use it either.

Over the last six months we have been getting our hands dirty behind the scenes, looking at these innovative and powerful tools. While Xero has been with us for several years Figured is somewhat more recent but continues to make rapid advances with a product that that will help to make sense of the numbers and become one of those tools that you will ask “why didn’t I use this years ago”… simply it wasn’t about, now it is!

What we most like about the Figured team is that they are not afraid to get input from users of the system. All in all they are good down to earth people with a real understanding of farmers.
