“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!!!"

"We manage a large portfolio of bars and restaurants across Australia and Lightyear has transformed our payable's processes. It has helped us to shrink our Accounts Payable Department by 66%, saving us more than AU $150,000 annually"


"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."

"This is by far the best AP app. The multi sign off process is simple and secure. Our clients love that employees have access to the Filing cabinet in case of queries. Everything is time stamped & tightly controlled. Not only do we save at least 5 hours of data entry each week, we have complete confidence that there are no duplicate invoices going through and that the invoices flow into xero, already checked & authorised for payment. Ready to be batched & paid on due date. I cannot speak highly enough of the product or the fantastic customer service."

"There are great features and very helpful staff. It gives our staff a streamlined process to get bills processed efficiently."
