“Particularly as the Xero App community is now truly global, spanning a huge range of industries and vendors,” he says.

“Following on from our 2015 Award, this is a testimony to the great work of our team and the huge support from our customers and Xero too.”

Spotlight Reporting’s award-winning tools import data from Xero, QuickBooks and other leading software products, creating insightful reports, forecasts and dashboards. Was also recognised in the 2015 Deloitte Tech 500 and Fast 50 Rising Star awards, and is also an App Partner of Intuit.

The company says it currently has hundreds of accounting and advisory practices including the ‘Big 4’ and the majority of the Top Xero Platinum and Gold Partner firms in New Zealand, Australia, UK, US and Asia.

Just last month, the award winning company also announced a successful $5 million capital raise.
