“It means really good budgeting, planning, cash flow and break-even analysis, great reports including comparing actuals to variances. We get great insights and some light-bulb moments." - Turner Polzin, Adams Brown
“Figured puts farmers and their advisors on the same page, with a user-friendly planning grid that can be worked on from anywhere with an internet connection, so farming teams can work together to build their vision for the future.” - Jeremiah R. Woltemath
One of the questions we’re sometimes asked is “Why do I need Figured when I have Xero already?” It’s a fair question and one we answer through describing the unique nature of farm accounting. Our business started from the ground up as a cloud-first specialist agricultural tool. Figured starts where the standard financial packages end, and better reflects the specific accounting needs of farming.
Our vision is to be agriculture's leading global financial management technology, driving the business of farming. To support that vision, we focus on partnering with organisations who share our view for the future of improving financial agri-management through technology.
As an accountant, your clients look to you for advice, insights, and support for their business. Using Figured allows you to help your clients really begin to understand the business side of their farming operation.
There has been much talk in the accounting sector of the shift from compliance task accounting (broadly, completing the year end return) through to added value ‘advisory’ accounting services. This is a story that has been well told by Xero and other cloud apps like ourselves at Figured. We know that technology is driving this through the displacement of repeatable tasks. The efficiencies come from bank feeds, automated budget reconciliation, integrations and report generation.
