What our Customers say

"We're very happy with the new service and the direction Lightyear seems to be heading. Approx 100 McDonald's restaurants are using Lightyear through us to get supplier invoices into Xero. We make sure all our book-keeping clients use it - It's great for speeding up the entry of invoices and supporting separate authorisation. Would definitely recommend you give it a go."

Max Telford
Telford's Accountants

"We have been using Lightyear for a while now and love the product. It's so easy to convert clients to Lightyear and they love the approvals process and that they can find invoices easily. Our hospitality and construction clients especially love it as they have so many invoices and can price check. Very easy to use and the support from the Care team is excellent and so helpful. "


Lynley Pryde

Launch Office Solutions

"Lightyear is a fantastic product which we use across our hospitality client base as well using internally as a firm. It has an easy to use interface and not only helps with eliminating data-entry but also facilitates better business processes around the accounts payable and invoice approval function. I have no hesitation in recommending this product to any of my clients."
