The Cardan Bar and Grill have been using Lightyear for over 2 years to give them real-time data on their purchases which helps them forecast cashflow more accurately. 

“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 spoke with Jonny Poots owner/manager to find out how they use Lightyear to get get live payables data.
