"Monty has streamlined our Board of Trustees and monthly departmental reporting. Reports are easy to understand, match our annual reporting model but retain a practical monthly reporting format that department heads can follow. Budgets are live and have a variety of reporting format options. Multiple spreadsheets with formatting errors are a thing of the past. Returning from our first Covid-19 lockdown our finance team worked on implementing a paperless office, the Appstack – Hubdoc, ApprovalMax, Xero, Monty provided the perfect solution to meet our future needs."

"The simplicity of generating reports in Monty and providing budget holders the information they require each month via email has certainly increased efficiency for all facets of school life."
Jeremy Marshall - Principal
Outram School
"As a Principal, I want things to be simple, easy to understand and time efficient. Getting to know Xero and Monty is now paying dividends and we can better focus on what is at the heart of what we do; our children and their learning."
Kate Bond - Business Manager
Ashburton Borough School
"Our School has been using the Xero programme for some years now and the limited reporting has meant a lot of extra work each month to collate the information into a presentable format which aligns to the Kiwipark model. Having Monty has meant I can just push a button on month end reports without any hassles."
Tegan Wilson - School Secretary
Cromwell Primary School
"Using Monty is like magic. You input the data into Xero, and it pops out in Monty in fit-for-purpose, comprehensive, accurate reports that are user friendly for Boards, Budget Holder and administrators with minimal time or effort spent on producing them."
