Easy and seamless integration with Xero. Looking forward to use the Consolidation function, which I haven't tried yet. Has increased the quality of our Management Accounts.

We love Syft and so do our clients. Customisable reporting that is simple to set up and run each month. You can design the report pack to answer your clients biggest questions and all very quickly and with ease.

Claire Grimes  

Love Syft, we find it much easier to use than other reporting apps and integrates with Xero really well. Just enough functionality - many apps have too much customisation which we do not need for our clients of small to medium organisations.

Sandy King  

Very cost effective and I'm saving a few hours each month using Syft. Swantje is super helpful too!

Rakesh Nairn  

I have really enjoyed using Syft. Definitely the easiest package to use and links so well with XERO. Keep up the good work.

Ian Pamensky  

Syft has been a game changer in terms of producing cost effective, fast and quality management reports that give insights into business that are not apparent from the financials alone. Syft leads to better quality conversations and more advisory engagements. 5 Stars!

Stuart Higgins  

I use Syft for my business reports and found I've been able to spend more time of the Analysis and commentary than on the creation of reports.

Luke Stevenson  

I have been using the Syft platform for a few months now. The visuals and graphs gives an amazing breakdown of exactly what the figures mean. Even on the free platform you derive great benefit from the reporting and graphs. The automated commentary is possibly one of the most helpful features. I love using Syft for my clients and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an amazing reporting integration in their accounting practice.

Victoria Modise  

Very satisfied with all the features of Syft. Use for multiple types of clients.Very user friendly.

Seth Swain

David Farnsworth  

This is truly an amazing piece of software, integrates perfectly with Xero, produces the best graphs and saves allot of time preparing reports.

Gerhard Huysamen  

Great product. Easy to read graphs and reporting for multiple types of clients and industries.

Lauren Hickey  


That's my description for this product.

First of all, they connect amazingly with Xero which is a huge plus since my team and I are moving our portion of the client base of the firm to Xero.

Secondly, they produce a very thorough report if you want or you can choose to simplify it if you like. You can group accounts like other much much more expensive reporting tools which shall not be named, and you can also create automatic talking points from the data as an executive summary.

Both these would be amazing on their own but then you couple in a flat fee for firms with unlimited clients and users and you have a product that swings way above it's pay grade. And I mean WAY above.

Our firm is just stepping into advisory services and after my time with it on a few of my clients, I am now recommending it to the firm to have as a part of our app stack for the future. It has the right amount of information to keep a conversation about the business going and also looks amazing, You feel proud handing over these reports to your client.

Well done Syft.

Joshua Veldman

Rather than reading reviews sign up to a free syft account and experience the magic.
Simply by linking your Xero account you get instant great looking reports based on live data.
If you find you need the advanced features eg budget, tracking reports, it's very keenly priced compared to competitors and it does an amazing job of having sensible defaults meaning you are likely to get instant insights.
