Making Your Life Easier

Do as little or as much as you like!

Case Study - Pod Food

"The ladies at Figures Matter sorted my books out and helped me get things back on track. Now I couldn’t live without them!"

- John, Business owner

Pod Food established by John Leverink leads his team to create a memorable dining experience for all occasions. Positioned amongst the beautiful gardens of Pialligo, the fully restored 1930’s cottage offers a unique dining location.


Opening his business John realised he would need a bookkeeper to help keep away the stress of the books while he focused on running the restaurant. Starting out with MYOB he got sick of being chained to the desk and wanted to be able to work anywhere at any time. The team at Figures Matter converted him over to Xero which allowed him to be able to keep an eye on the business’ financials even when he is away from the restaurant.

Slowly introducing extra add-on business applications such as Deputy, Kounta, Receipt Bank, Eway and Tyro has made it easier to sync and streamline the data from day to day business transactions.
