Having scanned images of all supplier bills, authorisation approvals and sign off, together with the sign off audit trail held electronically makes it the perfect business tool for controlling payable invoices and remote office working.'' 

Dan Cole - Partner

“Lightyear has been able to reduce bookkeeping time by between 40-50% purely because of data entry. 

There is no manual entry now, which has allowed my bookkeeper to get the accounts up to virtually a live situation each month, where previously we would have been 3-4 months in arrears. It is huge for us!!!"
