Great must have product

Loving ControlC. IMHO Very, very, good. It just works.

Killer feature for me is that it backs up all attached files in Xero as well as the data. Can then download to my PC in a zip file if I need to.

Set it and forget it and have your backups on ControlC's cloud servers or download them locally if you so desire.

Staff are responsive and helpful and the price is very reasonable.

One less nagging doubt about backups.

Control-C is super easy to use. Support responds to emails very quickly. Highly recommend.

This is really a must have. Since subscribing to Control-C if feel much more comfortable now that I have historical copies of my data. I now have my data in three locations: Xero, Control-C and the occasional Control-C download to my computer.

When I was originally looking to move myself and most of my clients to Xero, I identified two stumbling blocks. One was my many MYOB RetailManager clients that need a way to get their old POS data into a different accounting system and the second was some concern about backups especially if someone made unauthorised changes. I solved the first by developing our RM-Importer addon with a friend of mine and we had also started to write backup code. Now that I have found this product and had a chat with Kent and Campbell about their future plans, it is now time to cut our own development project.

I have had a look at some of the other backup and download solutions for Xero and I think this is the best one I have seen. Happy to promote it with my clients and continue to watch it improve.
