Transition from Sage Accounting to Xero

Ian Cook First Class Safety

Ian Cook is the owner of First Class Safety – an occupational health and safety consultancy and training business based in Rugby. Ian has known Sue for 17-18 years and met Sue when they were both working for different businesses.

Ian took over First Class Safety as an existing business 12 years ago and needed help with his Sage bookkeeping. Sue has been working with Ian for 12 years. Initially Sue assisted with all the invoicing and bookkeeping enabling Ian to focus on running his business. As the business has grown and staff have been brought in Sue has trained them on the systems.

Ian says “Sue is very thorough, superb at her job and very supportive to me throughout our time working together. She is very passionate about what she does, and nothing is ever too much trouble. She always returns calls even if it is late in the day or at weekends.”

Sue is a very good judge of character and has kept a protective eye over his business even when she was not as involved in the day to day anymore.

Sue has trained First Class safety staff both face to face and remotely and Sophie is now very confident using Xero – knowing that anything she is unsure of she only has to pick up the phone to Sue.

As a hands-on business owner this gives huge peace of mind that whilst Ian is focusing on the hands-on side of the business that the accounts are all well looked after.

Ian would recommend Sue Green of Rix Green to others without a shadow of a doubt.
