GreatSoft – the great new hope for cloud Practice Management in a Xero ecosystem

It’s been a long time coming but finally there is an Australian, (well technically South African), cloud based solution for multidisciplinary firms and firms who are too large to appropriately use Xero’s Practice Manager (XPM). GreatSoft is used by over 1000 medium and large accounting firms in 19 countries, including three of the ‘Big Four’ in Africa, and has been playing in this space for over 20 years. 

Back in 2018, Clarity street was lucky enough to jump out of an Uber, after attending a cloud meet up event hosted by Heather Smith, at the Practice Ignition Precon party (thanks to Sam from Go Cardless for shouting that uber and the socks!) and run into Daniel Fourie, who was also walking around aimlessly searching for the party. We hit it off right then and there and we were so excited that we booked in a chat for after Xerocon to explore the product in greater depth – we love how the universe works sometimes! Boy were we happy that we did have that chat, while the product at that stage was going under the radar in Australia, we saw the potential and couldn’t wait for the Xero Tax integration…fast forward to today and here’s our reasons below.
