What Our Customers Say About Us
UK Top 10 Accountancy Firm
"Lightyear is an integral part of our outsourced accounts service offering and our clients who have been introduced to the software find it an invaluable tool for running their businesses.
"Having scanned images of all supplier invoices, authorisation approval 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.
"All invoices being synchronised with the underlying accounts software also saves a significant amount of time when the need arises to dig out and review source invoice documentation. Lightyear is a cost effective solution for invoice scanning and processing and a superb selling point for our outsourced accounts service offering."
Daniel Cole - Partner
UK Hospitality Business
“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!!!"
Jonny Poots - Owner

"Lightyear has helped us to shrink our Accounts Payable Department by 66%, saving us more than AU $150,000 annually"
