Even though I had been using Xero for my own practice for over a year and had taken Xero's certification class, I felt that I still needed more knowledge on the product. I was looking for someone who could train me further, and quite possibly future customers as I moved forward with a Xero practice.
That is when I discovered Blue Circle Training. Their class made it easy for me to pick up on conceptual gaps I had missed, or undiscovered shortcuts with Xero. I was also great to take processing examples from my own practice and customer situations, and have them answered. One of the challenging parts of bringing on a customer to any new platform is making sure you plan and anticipate the critical accounting processing areas. That is why I chose Blue Circle to propel my Xero skills to the next level.
