Our customers rely on TidyBuild. Read some of their stories:


For Adan Larsen Builders, knowing real time job costings is vital to avoid overruns. Prior to TidyBuild this was a struggle, even with numerous spreadsheets they still weren’t 100% sure they had the numbers right.

"The best thing is having everything for a project consolidated in one place. We can see where a job is at with the click of a button."

Quantity Surveyors

BPM Group Chartered Quantity Surveyors, had just implemented Xero as their new accounting software and needed a system for the remainder of their business processes. Their traditional Excel and paper-based practices did not integrate with Xero, distributing information was cumbersome, and reporting of statistics required a lot of work.

"Tracking the profits and losses of each project and learning which jobs and clients make money are among the main benefits."

How and why does Xero integrate with TidyBuild?

The integration includes TidyBuild purchase orders and customers. The tight integration means that there is no double entry of purchase orders and customers, a huge time saver!

You can create a proposal in TidyBuild and pick a customer from your Xero database, or alternatively create a new one in either systems, which is then synced automatically.

If you raise a purchase order in TidyBuild, you can send it to your accounts payable in Xero and when the project is ready for billing, just the one click will create a draft or final invoice in Xero ready for your normal billing process.

Logged time, expenses and materials can automatically create Invoices and Purchase Orders – ready for processing when you are!

  • TidyBuild customer information is shared with Xero
  • Purchase orders can be pushed to Xero accounts payable, no double handling
  • Invoicable amounts can be pushed to Xero accounts receivable
