Fergus is Xero's featured app of the month

Tradie business owners reviewing their job on their devices

This month we’re celebrating the Xero team choosing Fergus as the staff pick of the month from over 1000 apps on the Xero Marketplace globally. 

Every year Fergus helps thousands of tradies to make their lives easier by streamlining their operations with our job management software. Our tradies not only save hundreds of hours of admin time, but they're able to increase their profits and gain peace of mind that their business is under control. Our team works incredibly hard to make Fergus the best it can be – so this is real honour to be recognised by the Xero team for the impact Fergus has on tradies. 

Why did Xero choose Fergus?

Two-way sync - Eliminate double handling or copying and pasting from one system to another. Information passes automatically between the two systems to give you a 360 overview of your business’s financial state.

End-to-end job management - Manage every part of the job from the first quote to job tracking, invoicing, and reporting to streamline workflows and reduce the amount of time spent on admin.  

Fast and easy reconciliations - Get supplier invoices directly sent from Fergus to Xero for easier reconciliation. Keep track of job progress and payment status. Get paid customer invoices from Xero automatically marked as paid in Fergus. Save hours each week by getting a helping hand with the match work.

360 view of financials - Have an up to the minute view of your financial status without the guesswork. Real-time information sends directly into Xero so you and your accountant know exactly where your business stands.

Quick and easy EOFY reporting - Compile your end of financial reporting quickly when you have information passed into Xero instantly from Fergus. The business performance dashboard in Fergus using financial information from Xero for full 360 view of the business health

Insights into your business - Gain insights into your business performance with the Business Performance Dashboard, Business Overview, and Business Activity reports. Understand your profit and loss and materials & labour charges month by month or take a look at annual performance at-a-glance.

Fast set up - Quick imports bring your existing Xero information - like contact records - directly into Fergus. The data migration helps get you set up and sorted in Fergus fast. New customers added to Fergus also get synced automatically to Xero. 


What our tradies have to say about the Xero and Fergus integration

“Since integrating Fergus into our system it has made everything so much easier. Timesheets are so easy to complete every week making payroll easier. The integration has been effortless and the customer support is second to none!” – Lindsay Peacock

“I have been working with Fergus for 10+ years. The staff are friendly, helpful and always at the end of the phone to help. The program is easy to use, from setting up new clients, invoicing, quoting, tracking performance. This program is linked with Xero which is a huge plus.” – J & M Group

“After using google calendar and a spreadsheet to manage jobs and quotes, I was blown away by the time saved and organisation Fergus brought to my one-man Electrical business. I really do save many hours per week sitting behind a computer and get to spend that time instead sitting with the family. It also syncs really nicely with Xero to give you a good snapshot of your operating costs and profitability/margins etc. I highly recommend Fergus to anyone looking to save some admin time and who feel unorganised like I used to”. – Tony Barrett Electrical 

“I have been using Fergus for about a year. It has proved to be exactly what I was looking for. I spend less time on the laptop and more time with the family. The support is great I always talk to someone helpful immediately. Big thumbs up from me”  - RAO Electrical
