BDO & Xero Client Stories - Christchurch

Alu Fix Installation Limited

Scott and Colleen Campbell started their Aluminium Joinery business in 2002 and they now employ 56 staff. They moved to Xero in 2013 which enabled them to reduce their administration costs while improving visibility of their finances.

Scott loves the ability to view their finances online wherever they are in the world and the fact that their friendly BDO staff can log on at any time to help.

Colleen says moving to Xero is the best thing they have ever done – easy to work with compared to other systems used in the past. She loves the fact that Xero “thinks”, as well as the ability for BDO to access information without the need for her to deliver anything to the BDO offices. There is nothing Colleen has found about Xero that she doesn’t like!

Working with BDO and Xero has freed up time allowing Scott and Colleen to work on growing the business while still achieving a work / life balance.



L & P Build Limited

L & P Build Limited is a local building company operating under an Online Design & Build franchise and backed by a Master Builders Guarantee. The company was started by Linda Fowler and Pete Hollow in 2013 with a philosophy that their clients would deal directly with them when planning their new home. Drawing on years of experience in the industry and a track-record of creating stunning homes for everyday Kiwis, they pride themselves on transparency and communication throughout every project.

Linda and Pete love the user friendly and easy nature of Xero and find it is quick and time efficient. Compared to their previous system, Xero has allowed them to spend less time on administration freeing up time to be spent on the more important tasks of meeting their business and personal goals.
