If you have any need to consolidate more than one Xero company - this is the app to go for, none of the others offered anything close when I was looking.

Even if you have only one company the functionality is great, with the planning and Power BI capabilities allowing data from other sources to sit alongside Xero data.

The support team always goes above and beyond and I can't recommend them highly enough.

Currently the only product that can handle large scale consolidations (>100) of Xero companies in Power BI or Excel.

The perfect solution for integrating Xero, WorkflowMax, Practice Manager and other accounting systems like QuickBooks for reporting, consolidation, cash flow forecasting, budgeting and planning with Power BI Desktop and Excel integration.

I have developed a PowerBI dashboard for a client pulling their Xero data from ClearJelly. ClearJelly has been the hub of the project and without ClearJelly I just could not do what I have done.
Support from the ClearJelly team has been exceptional and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to anyone wanting access to their Xero data for analytics.

The only two things I would like to see improved are:
1. More frequent synchronisation between Xero and CJ (a live connection would be great).
2. Two way synchronisation so when we update the CJ database that data is fed back into Xero.

We have been using Clear Jelly for a couple of months now to provide a job costing via Power BI and tracking codes within Xero.
We searched high and low for several years for a solution that would take our Xero data and make it really accessible from other apps including power BI. Clear Jelly was the only one we could find that would do what we needed.

Clear Jelly has performed exceptionally and allowed us to build via Power BI a flexible business tool drawing from Xero data plus a host of other cloud solutions.

We highly recommend this product

Clear Jelly has provided us an effective and efficient solution to merging our Xero data and Power BI, delivering upto date management dashboards for our dispersed team.

The service the Clear Jelly team provided was very attentive and worked us through the stages of the implementation with exceptional support.

I would recommend this add-on for businesses looking to generate timely information for quality business intelligence.

Clinton Keenan  

We are a small firm with limited resources and were looking for a cost effective way that we could deliver insight to our clients through engaging and useful reporting. We tested a number of different software options and decided to use Clear Jelly. The flexibility that it offered in how the data was used, analysed and displayed was exceptional. Far more flexible than many of the other software that was tested. We had a specific idea on what information we wished to pull from Xero and how we wished to automate our reports. The only option we found that could meet our specific needs was Clear Jelly.

The support and assistance that we received from their team was exceptional. Especially in the manipulation of our data through Power BI.

Would highly recommend this add-on for anyone who wishes to have finer control over the analysis and manipulation of their data.

David McKean  

We have tested all major reporting apps in the xero app store for an effective solution to cover our analytics need which are:
1.reporting from excel with a live link to xero where as a user I have total flexibility how I want to present numbers with my own calculations and a way to publish this effectively on the web.
2. Simple budgeting involving different planners with options to enter numbers on any level e.g. account or product groups.

3. Access via Power BI to create our own dashboards

The Clear Jelly Add-on was the only solution to cover these requirements brilliantly and the team was super supportive in assisting us in the process. Highly recommended!
