Compass Agribusiness manages nine farms between Tasmania and NZ. Between these farms are 5,000 head of beef cattle, 10,000 lambs and 4,500 dairy cows.
We started using Xero and Figured as a combination from July 2016. For us it is critical that we have true visibility into the financial performance of the farms which represents the operational models we adhere to. Accountability to our shareholders can be seen in the reports produced and the confidence that grows from the reports are important to us.
On our managed farms, a Compass consultant meets monthly with the individual farm mangers to discuss variances against budget, the previous month and the year to date. The forecast position going forward is also represented against the annual budget. This discussion naturally revolves around what is required operationally to meet production targets while staying within budget parameters. The information in the reports is up to date and therefore allows for positive discussions to take place.
Utilising Figured has improved our ability to make quick decisions based on actual results and therefore empower our farm managers to be responsive and make decisions with confidence.
For all our clients, the benefits are the same. It is common for farming businesses to engage their taxation accountant who provides historical information but with the Xero and Figured combination the information is current and forward focused. This supports cashflows for the future, and helps to foster a proactive relationship with banking partners.
We encourage all our clients to engage with the Xero and Figured software combination, to gain true transparency into their current position, to assist in operational decisions based on profitability and enable the business to grow based on those benefits identified.
