BDO & Xero Client Stories - Auckland

Paper Room 

"We love that BDO just gets us" Annabel Taylor, Paper Room owner.

Paper Room was established by Annabel Taylor and Sarah Shield in 2009, driven by their passion and desire for contemporary wallpaper, fabric and interior design trends.

BDO has been a significant support. Paper Room relies on BDO to have a great understanding of their retail business.

“We are a boutique, niche store with a very specific customer base. BDO has made the accounting side of the business very easy for us to manage and are always on hand with sound advice.”

Xero has been by their side since they started their business.

“Xero has been a life-saving tool for our business,” says Annabel. “We enjoy keeping on top of all our expenditure and debtors. The mobile app means we can keep an eye on things when we are out of the store or out of the country on buying trips.” They love that with Xero they can instantly know where the business is financially.

“It’s so quick, easy and seamless with our bank.”


Davanti Consulting

“BDO supported us above and beyond what I was expecting,” said Kris Bowie, Davanti’s Business Services Manager.

Davanti Consulting is a business and technology consultancy which focuses on customer engagement, digital enterprise architecture and mobility.

BDO partners with Davanti and Xero to keep their finances on track.

Kris Bowie believes that BDO was critical in helping them get set up on Xero and WorkflowMax, including providing training to everyone in the business.

“The answers to any of our random questions were answered quickly and even after-hours on some occasions. I had no doubt that BDO wanted our business to be a success as much as we did.”

Xero’s dashboards are critical for Kris’s daily work as they provide a quick overview of incomings and outgoings. In fact, Xero Touch is the first app Kris checks every morning.
