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.

Telecommunications firm Primus recently surveyed 300 decision makers about Embracing the Cloud. What they uncovered is that while roughly half of SMBs have started using cloud-based business solutions, only 27% use cloud-based finance & accounting and 26% use cloud-based human resources & payroll solutions. That’s interesting feedback for the Canadian cloud accounting industry!
Among those who 86% of those surveyed who use cloud-based services reported improved business processes and 94% see at least one benefit. (For accounting and finance the benefits are countless - and Xero keeps introducing new updates and upgrades to make it better and better!)
So what about the nearly 75 percent of Canadian SMBs who have not yet embraced Xero cloud-based accounting solutions? Why are they hesitating to use bookkeeping and payroll services for Canadian businesses in the cloud?
