Chapter 5 introduces our two star players, Practice Ignition and Link Reporting. Xero Practice Manager (XPM) and Xero are all you need to run an accounting practice, but if you are looking to automate processes and drive performance, these two applications will take you to the next level. Practice Ignition manages all client engagements, billing and job creation. The time savings are phenomenal. Link Reporting is a data analysis tool that delivers insights on WIP, staff and job performance. It allows you to easily identify areas of your practice that need attention. Using Link Reporting is like turning a light on in a dark room.
