When Charles Klvana, founder of Eye on Books, offered to lend his perspective on his journey towards achieving platinum partner status, we jumped at the chance.
In this ten-part series, Charles takes us all down memory lane and throws in some great advice for potential partners looking to follow in similar footsteps.
In the final piece of this series, Eye on Books reaches platinum partner status, and shares its lessons learned along the way.
Date: March 2017
Platinum partner status is reached! Need I say more?
From Scotch to Platinum
With a local team of permanent staff and a business that had grown organically over time, six years after that scotch with our first Xero client, we finally made it.
We’ve seen so many clients from completely different industries, and have customised Xero for each of them. We’ve converted clients from MYOB, Reckon, QBO, Saasu, Excel and even Cashflowmanager, mostly by ourselves directly.
Eye on Books has set up over thirty clients in Workflowmax, and these days we’re using over twenty Xero add-ons to give business owners better functionality based on their needs. Even with all of this experience, we’re still learning new things every day, and Xero is developing their functionality further.
But I didn’t do any of this by myself. I’m eternally grateful for having met and had the help of many of the Xero staff along the way, some mentioned above.
It also took a dedicated, passionate group of Eye on Books bookkeepers, always eager to help make our clients life easier. My hat goes off to…
Love you guys!
Thanks also to those that were part of the journey, but moved on to different things. Thanks Tony, Shane, Nicole, Anita, Arron and Maria.
The future for Xero is changing and constantly evolving. Eye on Books will evolve too. But no matter how we do it, we’ll always be making life easy for business owners in Australia.
