Beautiful user experience, fantastic reporting engine, the best reporting solution I've seen.
 

Paul Barnes  

Fathom is a great tool for advisory work - clear, easy to use and helps to keep on-focus rather than buried in detail. KPI tracker is great.
 

Andrew Coulson  

Excellent software - Allows me to give my clients reports which look incredible and really relevant to each of their needs
 

Andrew Wiltshire  

Fathom is like your favourite ice cream – mines the salted caramel variety. Always have it and we don’t need to look at other varieties. It works beautifully with Xero and forms part of Alexander Rosse’s unique app stack that clients love.”
 

Rashesh Joshi  

I haven't seen my business performance that clear and in-depth until I used Fathom. It’s a must for any business.
 

Osama Alothman  

Brilliant software. The benchmark for reporting tools presentation and ease of use. If you're just using Xero reporting your missing out. Worth spending a few extra dollars on this tool.
 

James Grierson  

Fathom is a great product, simple to use, very intuitive to use, even for people with no financial background, and yet very powerful and effective. I can highly recommend it to the business owners that run their own business like us.
 

Radomir Vranesevic  

We have been integrating our Xero data into Fathom for a number of years due to its reporting analysis and effective visual presentation to clients. The connection is simple and seem less. Highly recommend Fathom as an add on tool with Xero.
 

Robin Joe Kong  

The best reporting tool for Xero. Clients love it as it presents financial information in the perfect balance between graphical and tabular. It's easy to flip between actual vs. budget over a variety of periods, this month/quarter/YTD vs last etc. KPIs vs budget or a different target is very useful. Clear, easy to use and impressive all round.
 

Mark Drage  

Intuitive reporting tools for accountants, really flexible to use for client reporting.
 

Martin Horton  

I came across Fathom a few years ago and I loved it then and I still do. In that time it has developed new features and I believe it is a really powerful tool for accountants to use.

It provides great analysis of client's data in a format that is very visual and easy for clients to understand. The animations are very impressive when meeting with clients to go through their results and the graphics produced are very fresh and clean.

The support from Fathom is excellent and there is a useful built in support tool.

Overall, I think it is definitely one to try as you will not be disappointed.

 

Caroline Harridence  

Amazing software. My clients love it, even the ones who are allergic to spreadsheets!
 

Sarah Palmer  

Fathom is an awesome tool for presenting KPI based management information to business owners.

We love how easily you can pull together really powerful reporting packs in minutes.
 

Matthew Williams  

Great tool that just works out of the box..if you want fast KPI and graphical analysis and all the numbers in one place then Fathom is the solution. We've hardly needed to do much customisation but where we have it's been even more powerful... from login to report in 5 minutes.
 

Richard Spofforth  

This is a fantastic tool and has been well received by all that have seen it. The software is simple to use, works every time and can provide powerful results for businesses of all sizes and requirements. Although it's not required often, any support requests are dealt with effectively and with a minimum of fuss. Highly recommend.
 

Malcolm Pope  

Found Fathom to be a great, flexible tool and has made significant improvements to turnaround times of Management information as well as the visualisation and prompts around business specific KPIs.
 

Martin West  

Fathom has proven to be incredibly useful for group consolidations with multiple entities & multiple currencies.
The platform is intutive and easy to use.
I am looking forward to seeing the forecasting tools also - as this will add a value within my organisation, whilst saving time and resources.
The team is also very friendly, listen to feedback and always a pleasure to work with, however sometimes the response time could be improved ie sometimes 24/48hours sometimes not quick enough!!

I will echo similiar improvement as other reviewers that also work in the start up phases of their lives
KPIs - would be good if there was an option to self write - ie Sales , Marketing and Customer acquistion KPIs
Cashflow function requires some improvement to add real value


 

Roisin Ni Chonghaile  

This tool is very useful for group consolidations with multiple entities & multiple currencies.
The time saved has been tremendous!
The user experience is fantastic and really adds to the platform.
Having different access rights makes the tool beneficial for all company stakeholders.

Things that could be improved:
1) If we could set our own KPIs/workings E.G. for accounts receivable days, as a company who invoice annually in advance, just looking at revenue in the year makes our debtor days look pretty poor when that is not the case
Also, as a start up who are making strategic investment losses in the early years of our life, some of the profitability KPIs are not relevant (in fact all of them)
Additionally the revenue stream pie chart doesn't actually breakdown our revenue by each stream. So being able to tailor these KPIs to an organisation, or teach the platform what to pick up, would be AMAZING!

2) I hear that a forecasting tool is on the current roadmap. It's unclear what will be entailed here, but that could add a lot of value. I'd be happy to test this out with our organisation.
 

Shahini Vallipuram  

Creating consolidated reports are a breeze especially when you have 20 companies to consolidate. I am now using this as our reporting platform. Looking forward to more reporting improvements.
 

Jay Villaflores  

Fluid, well design and intuitive tool. The connection with Xero is well integrated.

Still some features to develop such as P&L by division or other cost elements. Even if it's in Xero, you can't use it at consolidated level, only at subsidiary level.
 

Adrien Duffournet  

Useful software that is very user- friendly.
 

Rugieri Andreta  

Fathom integrates well with Xero and the support team are great to deal with and very helpful!
 

Vivien Chu  

Great tool - makes my life so much easier, cant wait till they add the cash flow forecasting tool.
 

Saad Mirza  

Still in the process of setting up. So far all queries was handled promptly, useful and professionally..
 

Freddie Theron  

Love the ability to run benchmark analysis for our industry niches in this software. It provides great value that our clients love!
 

Joshua Lance  

Fathom integrates very easily with Xero and the recent Chart of Accounts layout makes interacting with Fathom reports as easy as you would interacting with Xero reports.

Further the new consolidated reports in Fathom make combining data from multiple Xero files easy, and allows you to run reports showing the consolidated totals alongside each businesses total.

The ability to add non-financial KPI data means you do not need to run separate reports but produce one simplified complete report.

I enjoy using this program to produce reports.
 

Brian Green  

Very useful tool in generating analysis!
 

Clarisse Cunanan  

Best management reporting tool that I have come across. So valuable for consolidating a clients different Xero files to show a true business position!
 

Tyler Sinclair  

I've been using Fathom for about 4 years and absolutely love it - best reporting tool that I have used and brilliant for really insightful, professional and easy borad reports.
 

Jane Aylwin  

We love Fathom - I used to have a complex set of Excel sheets for monthly reporting with our clients and it would take about an hour a month per client just to format the reports before adding commentary...Fathom has saved us many hours of formatting monthly, and most important our clients love and comment on our reports...Fathom has been a game changer!
 

Mark Holland  

I am very new to Fathom, the team have been very helpful and patient with me as i get to grips with the new software. Looking forward to exploring it more.
 

Hannah Chilmaid  

Amazing finance and KPI visualization tool!
Started using in one company and quickly expanded usage out across 5 of my companies as it's 1) super easy to get started with, and 2) gives great financial insight to the management teams running the companies, to help them make better strategic decisions.
 

Michael Bodekaer  

I am definitely converted to a Fathom user! love it, easy to use, the service on queries is super quick and helpful - extremely useful for consolidating companies :)
 

Sarah-Jane Morgan  

I have been using Fathom for a number of years and it is by far the best managerial reporting software out there. We're a small business with a number of divisions that uses it to produce reporting for our board and investors.

The stock list of KPIs that you can track is really useful. But it's also really intuitive to create your own KPIs more suited to your business needs. The theme of customisability runs right through the product and it's great to see new features being added on a regular basis. The tools and visuals in Fathom allow us to get a much better overview of how each division is performing.

I have occasionally trialled other well-known reporting solutions, just to see how they compare, and it only solidifies my position that Fathom is the most suited to our needs. For the cost vs. how much time it would take me to prepare the report manually each month, it's a complete no-brainer.
 

Alex Wareham  

Fathom is a great, reliable reporting tool which enables you to provide tailored reports for your clients. The team provide great support both initially and with any queries further down the line. I would highly recommend Fathom.
 

Gary Moorhouse  

Excellent analysis tool that we use with a majority of our business clients. They are always delighted by the ease of access and the great visualisation of their company performance.

What I find most beneficial beyond the analysis tools themselves is the KPI library and effort gone into describing the KPIs and suggestions for improvement. Great learning tool for our clients.

I have also found the support team a pleasure to work with, always quick to respond and able to answer any queries I have.
 

Robert McDowall CPA  

I am new to Fathom and working out the various report formats. Support team has been great in helping me find the right solution! Thanks!
 

Anand Ganatra  

We've introduced Fathom for our monthly management reporting and have been impressed with the level of analysis you can perform. The software is very intuitive and easy to use, simplifying and standardising complex accounting reporting.

The simplicity and ease of use enables more junior members to get involved with generating the reports and seeing the output, creating a more engaged team.

Being able to create bespoke KPI reporting and produce comprehensive benchmark reports, makes Fathom stand out form their competitors.

I would highly recommend Fathom to accountancy firms and businesses looking to streamline and improve their management reporting.
 

Chris Atkinson  

Great app and easy to use.
 

Keith Lee  

Really great tool - no problem with multi currency and multi company consolidation, and customer support is always very responsive and helpful.
 

Magda Wojcik  

An excellent piece of kit if you are looking for clear and concise business intelligence with specifically focused KPIs, including great consolidated reporting and benchmarking.

All set up between 5-10 minutes for data that could take hours to produce and with the ability to white label, a way to add further value to clients.
 

Huw John  

Fathom is an utterly excellent piece of software. It is simplistic yet beautiful, which engages our clients much more than the traditional methods of reporting. It gives us an insight into certain aspects which would have taken hours to calculate; however, Fathom does it automatically! The team is always happy to help and could not be more approachable.
 

Harry Minnis  

The support team have been great, very quick response and turnaround to fixing the solution!

Very impressed so far!
 

Daniel Whitehead  

Early stages of a trial but looking great so far. The reports look clear and polished

Looking forward to creating our own bespoke KPI's and avoiding the month end manual process of producing our scorecard.

 

Scott Smyth  

Fantastic tool for analysis. The set up can be a bit tedious but once it is done its awesome. Support is FANTASTIC.
 

Beck Kerstens  

Fathom is an amazing tool and franchisees love the reports and charts and graphs, benchmarking comparisons. I only have one wish- to have custom date ranges so I can straddle financial years.
 

Louise Nousala  

Fantastic tool for multi-currency consolidation. User-friendly and excellent for analysis of consolidated accounts including customised reports, KPI analysis and detailed reports. The Fathom team is very helpful and responsive too. Highly recommended.
 

Stiliana Tarapanova  

If there was a 6-star option, I would have given Fathom 6 stars. Best add-on I have used for any SaaS up to this point.
 

Marko Nikolic  

Love the simplicity, great visuals and customisation available
 

Matt Portt  

Needed to report a GBP company from Xero in USD. Managed to do this through the consolidation feature on Fathom.

Previously I was exporting to Excel then converting. This is much more accurate and efficient through Fathom.

Plus the reports look great!
 

Finance Team  

We have been using the app for a number of years and always find it easy to use. The style of the reports is easy for clients to understand and looks great. The team are also very helpful in any queries we have.
 

Paula Nurse  

Beautiful software, absolute pleasure to use!

The visuals are streets ahead of similar products and you can really see how much effort has gone into that. There's nothing clunky or fiddly in the reports, just straight up clean, sharp reports every time.

Happy to be moving our FD and management clients over from a another provider asap!
 

Andy Middler  

Having been an advisory first firm for over 8 years now the recent move to Fathom has enhanced our Virtual FD meetings by allowing us to anonymously benchmark clients performance against each other creating peer pressure and a drive to succeed in them - enhancing the value of our advice. Really enjoying using the product.
 

Luke Smith  

Great tool, fantastic for multi currency consolidation. Used the help/chat today it was quick and sorted my problem
 

Natalie O'DEA  

Very simple and intuitive tool. Awesome support
 

Gonzalo Alvarez de Toledo  

Fantastic tool allowing you to look at the detail of the business in a more visual way rather than black and white reporting! Very slick!

Highly recommend!
 

robert morrison  

Fathom is a superb tool for in-depth financial analysis and advanced Management Reporting. The seamless integration with Xero, crystal clear reporting templates and numerous graphs, tables and KPIs are hugely popular with our clients and add enormous value to the reports we create. The report writing templates are also completely customiseable, which saves a huge amount of time each month when preparing our reports.
 

Sean Hackemann  

Fantastic set of tools, and a flawless customer support team!
 

Christopher Brown  

Thrilled by the reporting graphics, standards, and statistics. Only trying the demo version tho but many more reviews to come in the future, good or bad don't know yet but so far 5 star
 

Faisal Jamil  

Excellent tool for use in my portfolio FD work. This makes consolidation of client companies so much easier, the KPI reporting tools are fantastic and I love the report templates and ease of editing them. Oh, and the customer service is second to none - all queries answered clearly and quickly so far.
 

Rachel Cheal  

Fathom is a fantastic companion to Xero, allowing us to seamlessly pull our financial data and create visually remarkable reports that provide intuitive analysis for the business.

So much time is saved through repeatable templates and consolidation functionality. The flexibility to create custom KPIs, both financial and non-financial, and reports means you can be as high-level or in-depth as you wish.

It's just a great way to give meaningful context to and interpretation of the underlying financials. And, the Tool is backed by pro-active and responsive development and support teams. Highly recommended!
 

Matt Osborne  

Having used several leading products, we found that Fathom is by far the best for producing management accounts and creating meaningful explanations of KPI's and their movements. Easy to use, almost limitless layouts, and is very well received by all of our clients.

Whilst it works seamlessly with Xero, using the Excel template to import data means that we are now using it for our Sage clients, with a simple Excel routine it makes it very easy.

Can't rate this highly enough and looking forward to future developments, especially for cash flow forecasting.
 

Ken Young  

XERO and Fathom fit together extremely well. I have grown my business from a single company to a group of 5 business with a significant increase in turnover (and profit :)) the cornerstone of that is understand what is going on in the group both separately and together which fathom displays incredibly well.
 

Ali McGregor  

Fathom is the most user friendly, powerful and good looking tool I have ever used. Backed up by their super fast and helpful support team it's the best overall experience of a SaaS app I've had.
 

Adam Johannes  

A brilliant tool which shaves off time when preparing management accounts allowing me more time to deliver value on the KPIs & financial analysis automatically prepared by Fathom. The team are always helpful and open to feedback on improvements to the platform.

You can continually see new features and improvements which allow more and more customisability. I would recommend implementing, you won't be dissappointed.
 

Rachael Chaddock  

An intelligent financial analysis tools that present topnotch and easy to understand report. Not only that, the service / support team are really helpful.
 

Candice Ang  

Fantastic tool which has greatly assisted our team in consolidating and reporting on a large number of entities. Fathom has also enabled us to chart our accounts with more consistent methodology and allowed deeper analysis and comparability of data.
 

Shaun Crane  

Great software. Easy to use and produces really professional looking reports.

Only downside is it doesn't bring in all data at a granular level, so better for high level financials.
 

Peter Thomson-Glover  

The Fathom tool has made my life so much easier from easy reporting, KPI tracker to profitability analysis to name a few. Any issues I've had while rolling this out has been efficiently dealt with by the Fathom team. I have recommended this tool to all the companies in our group. It is a must have add for your financial reporting.
 

Tracy Surkont  

Excellent consolidation and reporting tool. Very helpful and prompt webchat!
 

Tricia Desouza  

Very powerful tool, very easy to use and the team responds very quickly to questions and takes feedback onboard for future program development. Really enjoying using this program and have made some great reports and executive reports not just for finance, for the entire business. Highly recommend.
 

Sherene H  

In less that the time to watch the Godfather Part 2 I managed to....
1. Create a fathom account
2. Upload my Xero data
3. Set key KPIs and build multiple bespoke calculated KPIs
4. Redraw my Chart of Accounts to make sense to my leadership team
5. Establish some quick wins in terms of EBITDA

This tool is simple, graceful, epic and simply delicious. It fills the gaping void left by Xero's awful on board reporting. It really need 2 factor authentication. If I was running a professional services agency and using this that would be a must. I am sure that will come.
 

Mark Hurley  

An excellent add on and very responsive online support. The reaction from our clients has been overwhelmingly positive.
 

Tom Langston  

Very powerful, clean and simple tool for consolidated reporting and much more. Excellent customer support - HIGHLY recommend.

Matthew de Beer  

Fantastic prompt replies to any questions
 

Alex Houlton  

I have only just started using Fathom but am finding it quick and intuitive. It is particularly good at enabling the design of clear and useful reports that include financials, comments and graphs. Particularly like the ability to incorporate non-accounting KPIs. Linking with Xero is a breeze.
 

Hugh Davies  

As a small business in three countries we outclass even the very largest of businesses with daily fully up-to-date consolidated financials presented in beautiful reports. This helps immensely in our decision making and also when reporting to shareholders and investors. Fathom is an excellent must-have add-on for Xero!
 

Ben Hamilton  

We only use best of breed solutions for clients.
Clients are tech savvy fast growth, often invested, so reporting is very important.
Fathom is the best solution for producing monthly performance reports as the basis for a monthly meeting.
It interconnects with Xero for actual & budget data, and also Castaway for 3 way forecast data.
I've yet to find a solution the support team cannot solve for me.
 

Martyn Hodgson  

Fathom has completely changed our client reporting. We're now producing consistent Management Reports efficiently (focusing more on our analysis and commentary than building the report each time) and Benchmarking Reports to clients.

The support from the Fathom team is also second to none, always willing to take feedback and make improvements.
 

Mike Hill  

Much needed add-on with great default templates - one you start using you'll wonder how to managed without it.
 

Richard Martin  

Amazing add-on! The interface is really slick and smooth, features are amazing - but most importantly, the insights you instantly gain are priceless. For us, this add-on has been an great step forward. I get excited whenever I'm logging in to the "Analysis" section!
 

Dwad Lane  

Amazing App which gives all information on your finger tips. Preparing Management Accounts and complex tasks such as consolidating number of entities is such a breeze. I am one happy customer and would recommend it highly to anyone looking for an upgrade from Spreadsheets Age!
 

Rajni Ahuja  

Fathom integrates seamlessly and immediately with Xero and creates gorgeous and wildly useful reports. The ability to upload non-financial KPIs and peg them to financial indicators is genius.
 

Jimmy McW  

Awesome tool - Immediately helped us to identify areas we need to improve to run a more profitable business. Easily worth the low cost, easy to use, and highlights KPIs
 

Neal Quesnel  

I have been using Fathom for a month or so now. The free trial was great to see if it suited what i needed. I realised how good & automated the software is, linking straight to Xero.
Was a little overwhelming at first setting up cost centre groupings (i have about 20 cost centres across 4 companies), with the online instructions and a bit of help from the troops at Fathom i now have consolidated reporting going automatically to each department manager... & its accurate & timely data!!!
I will only ever turn off Fathom if my company outgrows Xero
 

Nick Dyball  

Fathom has exceeding my expectations. We have been hunting for software like this for a while now, but they have all be so complicated and not very user friendly. Fathom is very user friendly and easy to navigate your way around.
 

Jeanine Nienaber  

Fantastic tool.
 

ALI FARAG  

FathomHQ has been a glorious answer to prayer for me. I’ve been trying to get my head around my financial statements for the three years I’ve been running my business. Fathom has open a door of understanding for me that has been elusive. And at just the right time. I had just started reading Financial Intelligence for Entrepreneurs and was getting a better grasp of things. I had gotten to the section on ratios when I went hunting for a system that could give me better KPI reports and discovered Fathom. I have been forwarding Fathom on to any business friends that will listen to me. They too have been impressed and excited.
 

Paul Jackson  

I have been looking for a reporting tool for my quarterly client reports and love Fathom!
 

Natalie Lennon  

Excellent tool, beside the nifty reporting and analysis it is a great way of forcing compliance and discipline into the Xero users (if someone books anything funny the direct feed into Fathom will reveal it).
 

Henrik Ekstrom  

I love Fathom. I think it is easy to use and gives me a lot of insight to my company's financial performance.
 

Alex Fine  

Love Fathom and their recent updates! Awesome new Report Centre and report editor. Seamless benchmarking on tracking categories from Xero. Great customer service too!
 

Aleks Nastevska  

We love Fathom - it's so quick and easy to use and gives great visuals and data for the client to help them understand what is happening with their business. Highly recommended!
 

Tracey Nicholls  

A great tool no matter how many organisations you're looking at, but i'm even more impressed by the superb customer service I've received.
 

Sue Madigan  

Whether you're a business that knows exactly what you want to measure, or if you're figuring it out, Fathom is a great app for every Xero user. I think the product is so great, I've encouraged contacts within Xero to buy Fathom and integrate it into Xero.
Not only does Fathom have a great set of standard KPIs, it allows you to customize the KPIs very well. Importing your data from Xero is easy peasy, and the ability to map your accounts to the right metrics is awesome.
In case you couldn't tell, I'm a huge fan!
 

Chris Farkas  

Great tool ..helped us to understand our KPI's and once we understood the goalseeker tool it has really help us to improve our business efficiency. Would recommend!
 

Wayne Marler  

So it seems that all the reviews posted so far are 5 stars. Well there is a reason! Fathom surpasses their competition in logical construct, ease of use and practical application. It offers depth of analysis and presents the information simply and effectively. Check it out for yourself, I know you will be very pleasantly surprised.
 

Selwyn Gishen  

I find Fathom to be a fantastic tool to use. It is quite easy to use and customize. Fathom certainly makes my job easier. Fathom reports are great and their customer service is fabulous!!!!
 

Janak Palihawadana  

simple to use and extremely detailed, we reviewed almost everything and fathom was head and shoulders above the rest
 

Paul Norris  

This is a great add-on. It produces great reports, visually appealing, but most importantly helps business owners to gain prompt understanding of state of business and therefore make decisions that are relevant.
 

Karen Baker  

One of my functions is to present month end figures to our bright executive team, Fathom has made reporting easier to explain and the simple green/red presentation of cash flow and the plotting of growth against previous months is assisting me in explaining the "why" when we need to adjust our monthly strategy.
 

Riaan Davies  

Thrilled with Fathom. Fantastic functionality that has made consolidation of our Group reporting more efficient.
 

Nicolla O'Brien  

Not only is the tool flexible and great to show clients, the goalseek and historical views work hand in hand to provide the clients with a great visual picture of business performance. Looking forward to beefing up my use of Non-financial kpi's to round out the view even more!
 

Adam Ramage  

Linking Fathom with Xero has revolutionised our business. The insights that you can get are amazing. We also input other KPI data and it all integrates beautifully.
 

Fiona Moir  

Fathom + Xero! I just love this tool most especially the analysis. It helps a lot to ease my work.
 

Jona Pancho  

Fantastic reporting tool with great analysis of the company figures. Far easier to use than the traditional Excel dashboard spreadsheet we have just deleted...
 

Brian Curran  

The more information a business owner has available to make business decisions, the better the decisions. For my clients and us Fathom is the best tool we have come across in 15 years of business development to provide timely, accurate and useful data to determine the best path of action to keep building successful companies. I recommend ALL my clients to get connected and they are all benefiting. Thanks for building such a great business tool.

The Team At Prosperity Business
 

Anthony McNab  

We have been using Fathom for nearly two years now and still think it was on of the best add ons for Xero that I came across. Being able to get consolidated accounts and meaningful KPIs instantly on linking to Xero was brilliant
 

Andrew Madigan  

We use Fathom as our BIS, integrating results from our own and 6 franchisee operations to get analytics and benchmark comparisons over all of our businesses. Not only do we source this information from Xero, we also pull from Excel spreadsheets comparative information such as customer satisfaction ratings and client numbers to get a complete view of the business. Easy to instal. And we are based in portugese speaking Brasil. Well done and thank you Fathom!!! www.santograo.com.br
 

Marco Kerkmeester  

Only just started using the Trial, but already can see that Fathom will be an integral part of helping me with my small business.
 

Dean Rose  

Fathom has saved us so much time with consolidating multiple Xero accounts. I highly recommend it
 

Lisa Andrews  

Being able to set up custom KPI and targets for our business in one dashboard has made managing our business so much easier. Our monthly meetings are able to focus on the key areas of our business and easily identify areas of focus
 

David Carney  

Great tool, I find it great for consolidating our company accounts across multiply currencies and on Xero and MYOB platforms.
 

Tony Smith  

Very useful tool! Our clients use this to track trends, assess their performance against targets and to benchmark themselves against other businesses.
 

Sam Chapman  

We use it for management meetings and board packs, the information and customisation is great.
 

Synaq Accounts  

Fathom is one of the best kept secrets for us and we use lots of cool cloud-based apps. No matter how experienced the individual is, they are all amazed to see the type of reports we can pull it of our Financials and custom KPI's.

Highly recommend.
David
 

David Jacobson  

Amazing tool, easy to use, perfect for overseas board meeting to analyse / easy to show financial data, especially for those who has no financial background

Support team is very supportive and response very quick.
Really love it, my favourite one
 

Nataliia Kalashnikova  

Fantastic tool, easy to use and understand. Would definitely recommend it!
 

Charlene Tucker  

As Advisers to a rapidly growing retail franchise account, Fathom is a critical tool that allows us to get a complete view of their finances and store performances across the entire franchise network. With XERO & Fathom we can get up to date financial information that is easy to group alike stores, measure KPI’s, benchmark & compare. Having real time information allows us to deal with issues before they become problems. Fathom allows us to be proactive and keep our “finger on the pulse” for the franchiser. Fathom’s support team is awesome too.
 

Connie Francis  

Wish I had this 10 years ago - It helps paint the complete picture for all relevant parties. There is no hiding from the data, we now focus as much or more on the KPI's. We view the financial results as a bi-product of getting the key activity drivers right. Found it simpler to setup than alternatives on the market. Keeps a focus on the results that matter and what levers to pull to keep things on track, no more fiddly spreadsheets, fantastic being able to share with key stakeholders (wife, trustees, accountant, banker etc).
 

Nick Sowman  

I'd recommend this to anyone - it has saved me so much time and gives me the insights I desire about the business.

The ability to consolidate by businesses across multiple countries into one view of the world has been just gold.
 

Sam Dean  

Highly recommended - It makes multi-company consolidation a breeze.
We use this with our clients to gain massive insights into their business
 

Mitchell Reece  

Simple yet powerful, Fathom has helped our business to analyse our store performances and benchmark them against each other. It is very user friendly, integrates with Xero seamlessly, great functions and visuals, and great support by the Fathom team.
Highly recommend this tool.
 

Nico Harjanto  

Highly intelligent software that produces high quality data in a fraction of time. Have just attended a business advisory meeting with a client this week that has increased EBIT by $500K in twelve months, built on the back of analytics from Fathom. I love the goal seek tool that is eloquently simple and demonstrates the required strategies.
 

Chris Mullins  

Love it! Fathom provides very useful metrics and easy to understand reports for our clients.
 

Kishor Senghani  

Unique and intuitive graphs. Enjoyed going through the demo data. Also, their support staff is very responsive, I asked them to add an extra currency to the system, and they manage to close my request in less than 48 hours.
 

Hani Elmalky  

We use this to consolidate our xero entities and a couple of companies still on different systems via excel - it is very nice, very easy to use and reports are mostly very pretty.
I would love it if it allowed you to produce a slightly more detailed P&L with a few more tags, if you could merge the budget view reports into the main report and if they would add polish zloty currency - (as they have promised they will). It is very good value for money for all it offers and a definite improvement for us over doing everything in excel.

I love Fathom, as a non accountant, I need somehting that is easy to use and easy to inform. Fathom does both. I added some of my own KPI's and the support crew were excellent in providing quick turnaround responses which were super helpful. I am a real fan.
 

Damian Kernahan  

Have tried virtually everything out there and Fathom is awesome - allows more flexibility with mapping the COA than any of the others and is very easy to set up and use. I love it and clients love it. Really brilliant for high level reporting to board meetings and delving into key metrics for internal controls.
 

Jane Aylwin  

Overall very satisfied with customer support. They respond quickly. Small bugs here and there but I can see that there is support to fix these-currency not showing, updating getting stuck. The reporting is definitely a great plus in addition to the eliminations tools for consolidated reporting. The customization of reports is a bit lacking but, it is balanced by the plethora of available reports. I do hope that it will be possible to combine parts of different reports and have a written portion so it can look professional.
 

Witek Lukaszynski  

I was very pleased to get a prompt (virtually immediate) personal response from an email I sent on a public holiday regarding a glitch with the upgrade. I couldn't update my consolidated group reports. It was corrected late that night and so all was sorted by the time I was at work the next day. Very surprised and greatly appreciated. Great to know the team has their clients needs as a priority.
 

Sue Elliott  

This is by far the best KPI reporting tool i have found for Xero. It makes things really easy and takes the guess work out of your most important metrics.

You can also upload and track non financial KPI's which is amazing.
 

Ben Norman  

Great KPI reporting tool. Easy to set up and update and easy to understand and explain.
 

Mariko Rogers  

Excellent tool and I am glad I found it. Especially for reporting to our shareholders and external investors the visuals and the integration with Xero are saving me a lot of time month after month. I reviewed the other options, but for our business Fathom is the best of the tools for a Xero integration. Well done.
 

Michael Balzer  

Liking it for the variety of reports to suit the client (and us as advisors). Integration is nice and simple
 

Andrew Brown  

We've been using Fathom for some time now as one of our tools as part of our monthly and quarterly client meetings. We find that our clients love the visuals (it's not just numbers!) and that they get meaningful data on their business measured backwards against historic data and compared with their budgets.

We love that it's quick and easy to update from Xero and MYOB, and that our clients are always keen to see how their numbers are looking. It's a great conversation starter to open up the real issues affecting their businesses.

Thankyou Fathom!
 

Dale Edwards  

Fathom is simply brilliant software. It is highly visual and clients that cannot understand traditional P&L and BS can get a real handle on their businesses financial position with the Reports that are produced out of Fathom.
 

Lachlan Ballinger  

Great software and excellent support. I have and will continue to recommend.
 

David Gill  

Great tool. Very easy to use and provides easy consolidation. Highly recomended
 

George Steele  

Great tool for providing regular reports for management purposes. My clients love the visuals and find them really easy to understand and identify the areas we need to focus on.
 

Amanda Fisher  

As the CFO of a few companies all using Xero both in Australia and the Philippines, finding software that seamlessly integrates with Xero still amazes me that within seconds you can have a complete reporting analysis of monthly, quarterly and annual results in a professional presentation – my job has just become a lot easier. Thank you Fathom
 

George Larcher  

"My accounting practice uses Fathom to recognise and identify issues that are affecting business growth. We can then provide our clients with real time business solutions that are both effective and timely. We are very happy with Fathom, it's working wonders!"
 

Adam Wilson  

I love Fathom!
 

Karim Osman  

Fathom is a fantastic when it comes to data analysis! It has become an integral part of business and really helps visualise important KPI's that are often looked over. Can't recommend it enough.
 

David Maslen  

Client responses have been great and it is very easy to use
 

Steven Odgers-Jewell  

We use Fathom with a lot of our clients in the creative industries. It makes it so easy for visual people to understand their financial data: a critical challenge when dealing with creative people. It's an incredibly easy tool to use, but has great customisation capabilities if you really want to use it to its full potential. And the guys who run it are incredibly responsive when you have any questions or suggestions for improvement...
 

Ian Murray  

I've found Fathom to be the most comprehensive and elegant data analysis for Xero. The graph's are well thought out, diverse and invaluable to any business. I highly recommend anyone interested in expanding their understanding of what is behind all the numbers we dutifully have to enter into our Xero accounting. It goes way beyond what is available in Zero alone. Set your goals and watch hopefully your growth towards them.
 

Neal Rossel  

Fathom is a great add-on. User friendly and the customer support you get is great. Works great with both Xero and MYOB. Thanks you. Keep going with making the product even better :)
 

Asela Fernando  

Fathom is amazing even for a small business like me, it has given me a view of my company results from a few different angles and will definitely lead to some changes in the way I conduct some aspects of my business. The auto plugin to Xero is AWESOME , thanks Fathom & Xero!
 

Jo Hanlon  

Fathom is simply, Brilliant.
 

Nicholas Wormald  

I use Fathom to consolidate & report across 144 xero accounts. I find Fathom very user friendly, & have been very impressed on how easy it has been to integrate with multiple xero accounts & produce the reporting I needed. Fathom´s reporting is great - it consolidates multiple accounts very well, & I have been especially impressed with the visual reporting available to compare entities based on the important KPI´s I need to monitor.
 

Jim Jessep  

We've been using Fathom now since July 2012 and now have almost 200 of our companies in the system. We get real value out of Fathom, using it for monthly company benchmarking reports, during our business planning sessions and also to provide alerts to our Support Team of any businesses that are not performing as expected. This helps us to be more proactive as a workforce and allows us to focus on the important information in our businesses. It is a slick and easy to use Xero add-on that brings our financial data to life. Fathom are great at providing continual updates packed with impressive new features.
 

Ashley Clemmett  

Fantastic Product, really helps explain financial reports to non financial people
 

Christopher Galloway  

Have recently subscribed to Fathom. Fantastic range of reports and ability to consolidate and compare entities. Highly recommended
 

Mark Wills  

I am a very recent Fathom convert/user and am very impressed with the overall package. I have been thinking/researching for quite a while for a consolidation package at a minimum. Fathom does this very well on a simple, efficient, clear to understand basis. Its reporting menu is extensive and growing. The benchmarking tool is a great addition and now to set it all up.............
 

Stephen Hannon  

I have been using Fathom since the very early days when they first launched their application. It is an awesome application help you understand the drivers of a client business and provide significant insight into your clients accounts in a format they can understand.

The team is also very friendly, listen to feedback and always a pleasure to work with.

I highly recommend starting to use Fathom with your clients.
 

Robert King  

We've been working with an excellent management accounts advisor who has markedly improved our ability to understand what elements of the business we need to be tracking. Fathom is now the icing on that procedural cake - automated management accounting with great looking visuals and huge flexibility to change both financial and non-financial KPIs.
This is very helpful for us both internally - in tracking our own progress, but also for banks, investors etc in professionally presenting our situation.
I understand that exciting developments are in the pipeline which means the Fathom team, like all great companies, are looking to keep at the cutting edge of the possible.
 

Carl Benfield  

Fathom delivers the reporting I'd always dreamed of. Financial reports are now easy to understand at a glance, compelling to read and valuable for our agency ExCo. Keep up the good work.
 

Alex Myers  

Very powerful tool for distilling complicated issues into easy to understand reports for all levels of users.

Highly recommended.
 

Jake Phillpot  

Functionality at the click of a button. Upload out of MYOB or Xero and provide clients with a real time solution for relative reporting of information. Not a boring P and L but a visual representation of information.

Enjoyable staff to deal with any problems and a big plus to our business.
 

Christopher Gray  

True indepth reporting and analysis at the click of a button. Very easy to use. You can create your own KPIs. Great find.
 

Cedric Charpenet  

Have been extremely happy with the functionality and ease of use of Fathom. The reporting makes explaining operational performance for financial and non financial easy to understand. We are also using Fathom in developing a very valuable database of KPI tracking to assist Podiatry practices benchmark key metrics in their businesses. Fathom is proving to be a very valuable tool to enable that process for us.
 

Greg Gunther  

Fathom is an incredibly useful tool that helps us to illustrate operational performance. We've utilised it for KPI tracking along with client analysis including both financial and non-financial targets. The reports that are generated are undeniably slick to display, and the interactivity is top-notch.
 

Ben Hoseus  

Fathom has been wonderful for our growing psychology practice. It helps us to keep track of how we're travelling and my business advisor believes it's one of the best EIS systems he's seen. It is really so much more than KPI tracking - but it does do that very well. A great tool for tracking growth and managing risk.
 

Andrew Tompkins  

Amazingly easy to prepare consolidation worksheets with full audit trails and elimination columns for our individual State ledgers. This will provide an invaluable audit trail between the individual ledgers and the final consolidated statutory reports.
 

Glen Fairweather  

We love Fathom! We tried similar softwares and this one is by far the best and easiest to set up. Their support team is also really responsive and efficient. If you're looking for a way to better track your KPI, you should definitely check it out.
 

Ophelie Rat  

I would like to thank Geoff in specific and the Fathom team who helped us to resolve an integration issue with Xero. Thank you for bearing with us and getting to the bottom of it. It is great and comforting to know that we can escalate any queries etc. and have it dealt with in such an efficient manner. Thanks again!!!
 

Michelle Lawrence  

Great tool to help clients understand what's going on in their business. We've looked at loads of similar software but this is the best we've come across.
 

Marc Lawson  

A truly powerful management tool that will empower your clients or yourself as a business owner. I cant commend this product enough.
 

Jodie Marshall  

Quick and easy way to display KPIs without sorting through the in-depth detail. Consolidation function is also handy.
Once setup to suit your business, its a great time saving measure.
 

Rhys Munro  

It's an "easy to understand" tool, that provides you important facts (financial and non-financial) about your company. They are always improving the way you manage your companies and KPI's. It's totally worth it.
 

Thales Sonoda  

We've been using Fathom for well over 2 years now and couldn't work without it. The Goal Seeking Function is a huge 'light bulb' moment for clients to help them with their business.
 

Chris Eccles  

Pros: great visuals, very easy to map chart of accounts (!) and customize KPI metrics, intuitive design makes it easy to navigate between reports without prior experience, powerful interactivity allows to drill down into metrics and see how accounting data flows into the add-on (this ability is quite important if you want to understand workings of the add-on)

Cons: cashflow function is limited (i.e. doesn't allow for cashflow cycle analysis or to drill down into elements forming the report); having said that, the report provides some help via "?" sign if you want to drill down and reconcile accounting data
 

Roman Medvedev  

love the consolidation function. I can generate a consolidation report with all elimination lines in a hour! 12 entities, intercompany account elimiated automatically! Magic!
 

Jerry Zhao  

We find Fathom invaluable for our medium sized companies, particularly explaining variances to budget and setting out cashflow in an easy to understand manner.

It is very easy to use and offers enormous flexbility in reporting. It's a first rate product.
 

Angus Ogilvie  

We find Fathom makes sense of the numbers, and love the fact it explains cashflow to clients. The fact that it is interactive and you can work on how to achieve the result differentiates it from others.
 

Brian Alexander  

We use this with a number of clients... this is making a big difference in our practice.
 

Dave Willson  

Amazing tool! Professional looking reporting instead of spreadsheets. Much added value for clients.

Please add some more reporting options, such as 5 years P&L and BS comparisons, Trend analysis for 5 or more categories. Bar chart options for reports.

Really liked the excel import options and customization. This allows great deal of flexibility for non cloud clients. Highly recommended!
 

Edin Ahmed  

This is a wonderful, powerful KPI reporting tool. The team at Fathom has built a solid product.. and it's beautiful to look at and use. Kudos Fathom!!
 

Jon Willson  

Great looking reports. Easy to use. Fast.
 

Phillip Marzella  

Fantastic tool. I've used this from another slant which was a role involving a franchise using it to report on individual franchise outlets. Great look and feel to the product, very easy to use. Also David and Daniel from Fathom are highly approachable.
 

Daniel Fairbairn  

Fathom is ahead of the game when it comes to analysis of client results. Each KPI is shown in a genuinely unique way that allows a thorough understanding of the KPI.

I've found there are a huge number of KPIs, so generally just pick a few key ones to run through with the client rather than overwhelm them. It is really good having such a wide selection though so I can pick what is most appropriate for the client.

Fathom itself is a pleasure to use. The animation of each area is so slick and is impressive to show clients on the screen. You can see the love, care and attention to detail the developers have spent on this.

I can't recommend this add on highly enough, and with a free trial you'd be crazy not to try it out.
 

Anthony Wardley  

Love this tool and it's very easy to see why. There is to much to put here so why not check out the review we completed when testing Fathom.

Fathom Review
 

Jon Jenkins  

Excellent Tool for more in depth account analysis. Great KPI tracker. Also allows client log in which is fantastic.
