It takes a lot of work to make things simple

I started BBO to solve my own problem. How do I know if my business is on or off track early enough so I can make the changes early enough to ensure success?

So many questions need answering:

  1. Have I got enough cash?

  2. Did I make a profit?

  3. Which customers are worthwhile?

  4. Who are my best staff?

  5. When can I afford a new van?

  6. What is my tax liability?

In order to run the business, I had to have up to date financial information. Which meant getting all the information into my business systems such as Xero, MYOB, Simpro, Tradify, Aroflo etc.   

Better Back Office helps trade businesses process their data so they can answer those basic management questions every day. We'll take an invoice or receipt by email, envelope or shoebox and process it so that you can see exactly the position of your business. You know where you are and can be sure you're not heading for trouble.

We’re not reinventing the wheel here. We will take our years of industry experience and show you the shortcut the Best Back Office experience. We can give the best in the industry straight away. We’ve taken the guesswork out, we know what works and we know what doesn’t.
