“ British Felt are a UK manufacturing company who are specialists converters of non-metallic fabrics and foams to produce manufacturing components for a variety of sectors. Customers include industries such as Automotive, Medical, Construction, Steel Processing, Toy & Hobby craft and Military.
Nunn Hayward have been our accountants for a number of years and when they approached us to move to the Cloud, we were keen to embrace new technology and gain better visibility of our accounts real time.
The Nunn Hayward team have worked with us each step of the way. They first took time to understand our business processes and systems. This enabled the team to shape how we used Xero to meet our needs. I was impressed with how the team was able to problem solve and design solutions, stretching Xero to its maximum functionality. ”

“Firedrake is a Financial Services company with deep expertise in delivering large-scale transformational and regulatory change for capital markets and corporate banking clients through professional services and BiBox, the next generation financial shared services platform.
Initially, FireDrake managed most of its business and financial processes in-house. 2016 was a year with significant increase in the size and complexity of the contracts to be delivered and also the year that BiBox development started. FireDrake wanted an outsource provider who would be able to support across a number of functions and who could provide a wide breadth of technical accounting skills.
FireDrake selected the 61 outsource team due to their positive approach to partnering and ‘can do’ attitude. To enable FireDrake to focus on developing the BiBox IP and its customers, the Accounts Payable and Receivables functions were outsourced, including managing a project with a large multi-national client and the month-end reporting process. The 61 team developed into supporting FireDrake with cashflow and forecast reports and interacting with FireDrake’s investors during its recent fundraising round. As FireDrake have grown and recruited a permanent Office Manager, some functions have been transitioned back to make this a flexible and sustainable solution that focusses around FireDrake’s needs as a client. The 61 team now know FireDrake’s business extremely well and through using Cloud accounting tools, they are able to run reports within 5 working days from month-end. ”
