Design and media companies like yours are already working with Beyond

At Beyond, we have dozens of clients working in the design, media, and creative sector. Whether you are a graphic design studio, a video production company, an advertising agency, a firm of architects, a branding consultancy, a digital media company, or a media agency we understand how companies like yours work, and what they need from their accounting systems.

Xero and creative companies

As a design, media, and creative client, you need to know if Xero can meet your requirements from the perspectives of managing time and expenses, evaluating job and client profitability, software integration, and reporting.

The good news is that Xero has its own projects module and also owns WorkflowMax, one of the leading job costing systems for this sector. Xero also integrates beautifully with many of the other popular design, media and creative software products.

Xero offers you a single point of entry with easy and streamlined time recording, project profitability, automated payments, and visibility of your client profitability. It’s also straightforward to develop custom integrations if you need to.

Some of the integrations & Xero add-ons used in this sector

Clients perform from hundreds to thousands of transactions every month, and different plans are available allowing you to scale based on usage and support requirements. You might also need solutions such as automation, consolidated reporting, direct debits, payroll, or credit control. As experts in business systems, we’ll help you build the technology stack you need to drive your business forward.

A flexible service from a dedicated team of experts
Advice selecting and implementing your tech stack
Support to help you drive growth and target profitability
Real-time data and reporting to facilitate business decisions

Design, media and creative people use technologies daily. Xero fits them very well for accounting as it’s cloud-based and feature-rich. Unlike other accounting systems, Xero is built for business owners, and with the modern UI it’s straightforward to get the information and reports you need in real time.
