Irish Railway Models & Accurascale + Reconcile.ly

 

Irish Railway models and Accurascale are two brands of a design and manufacturing business that produces high fidelity, detailed models of Irish and UK outline model railway locomotives and stock for discerning modellers and collectors. With design offices in Ireland, the UK, Moldova and Canada and factories in China, we deliver primarily in 4mm and 7mm scales since 2015.

 

We do this using two separate Shopify accounts and using different currencies.

 

We have been using Reconcile.ly across both of our stores for about a year now (Aug 2020), and straight away noticed how Reconcile.ly makes the entire relationship with Xero clean, clear and effortless!

 

Before & after Reconcile.ly

 

We were looking for a solution like Reconcile.ly, ever since moving to Shopify about 3 years ago.

 

When asked why I choose Reconcile.ly, I tell people all other solutions that link Shopify to Xero, rely on creating customers, invoices, etc, per transaction in quite a generic manner, whereas Reconcile.ly smartly realises how Shopify and Xero work in the real world, and the pain points of maintaining clear and accurate data between the two.

 

We had tried two other Shopify / Xero connection tools in the app store before Reconcile.ly, We then ended up with significant manual reconciliation of Shopify sales and orders and despite all that manual effort, the end result was nowhere near as clear and useful as the data Reconcile.ly now provides in Xero.

 

All prior processes had similar pain points – significant manual labour mostly as a result of the existing options on the market not ‘getting’ how Shopify worked in the real world. This led to inaccuracies, lack of insight into the data, and overly manual tracking of things like credit notes and gift card spend – all now seamlessly handled by Reconcile.ly.

 

So to the guys at Reconcile.ly: Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have reduced the number of hours spent reconciling data from more than 75 hours per month, to now less than 5. To say Reconcile.ly is a literal godsend would be a massive understatement.
