Streamline Your Advisory Workflows with Fathom and Xero HQ


Xero has announced a new addition to the Xero HQ platform, the ability to integrate with a curated ecosystem of nine practice apps.

The new integrations are aimed at providing accountants and bookkeepers with the best tools to drive efficiency within their own practice, develop closer relationships with clients, and build additional advisory services.

As one of Xero’s most successful and popular reporting add-ons, Fathom has been selected as a recommended reporting solution within Xero HQ.

David Watson, Co-Founder of Fathom noted that successful firms are now engaging in more management reporting and general business advisory.

“For progressive advisory teams, the challenge is to deliver insightful, relevant, and highly personalised reporting services - in a scalable and engaging way.

“Fathom is specifically designed for accountants and bookkeepers who are seeking to deliver more frequent and more engaging advisory and management reporting services. Our aim with this integration is to streamline advisory workflows,” he said.

How the integration works
Reports designed in Fathom can now be scheduled for issue after the end of each reporting period. And once these reports are published, links will automatically appear in the Xero HQ activity feed. The automatic sync function means that reports always reference the latest data sourced from Xero.

Upon seeing a notification, advisers can quickly access and review a report, and add final commentary or make other changes. And then, with a single click, they can approve a report for sharing with the client(s). Any activity on a report will also trigger an alert in Xero HQ, enabling both the client and advisor to collaborate with greater ease.

Benefits for advisers

  • Spend less time creating reports, and more time advising clients
  • Be kept up-to-date on the most important numbers and KPIs
  • Easily access reports at the right time
  • Streamline the delivery of reports to more clients
