Bainbridge Lewis celebrates innovators award

1st October 2013


We are celebrating having been presented with a coveted award at the recent  Xeroconconference in London (24-25 September). Attended by 400 people, Xerocon is organised by  Xero – the world’s fastest-growing developer of accounting software for small businesses and their advisers.

The 100% Cloud Award acknowledges the commitment that Bainbridge Lewis has made to the research and implementation of modern technologies to make its clients’ lives easier.

“Xero is a global company and we are honoured to have been hand-picked by the judging panel for this award,” says Carol Lewis, co-founder of Bainbridge Lewis. “The award follows hot on the heels of Gail Bainbridge being invited to participate in the Partner panel at the same conference where she shared her knowledge and experience with other accountants.”

Gail Bainbridge, co-founder of Bainbridge Lewis adds: “As a fresh-thinking and dynamic accountancy firm, we didn’t want to stick with traditional accountancy software that can be expensive and difficult for clients to use. Xero advertises itself as the world’s easiest accounting software and we would have to agree.”

She continues: “Being based in Brighton, our clients represent everything that is unique about this city. The Bainbridge Lewis client community is vibrant and diverse, but they all share the same kind of energy and are very much 21st century businesses. We have to provide solutions that work for them and fit in with the way they do business. Xero saves our clients’ money, is simple to use and offers easy access to up-to-date management information.”

Xero now has 30,000 UK customers and 1,200 accounting and bookkeeping partners. As a cloud-based system, Bainbridge Lewis’ clients can access it from anywhere, even on their mobile phones.

“In addition, we can access it too – which is a great help to our clients if they need any advice,” says Gail. “Xero helps us connect with our clients throughout the year and allows us to focus on their business in real time, helping with day to day decisions and looking at margins, profitability and growth allowing us to take on more of an advisery role.”
