We are 4th generation farmers in the Coolah/Cassilis district. After being totally burnt out by the Sir Ivan Fire in 2017 with only 60 hectares spared, we are virtually back to where we were and have totally repaired, rebuilt or replaced over 42km of fencing, pastures, stock, multiple sheds, most machinery, all tools, two sets of cattle yards, silos, pumps and other infrastructure. We have achieved all of this whilst experiencing the worst drought on record.

Over the years the record keeping required for a farming business has changed greatly. Gone are the days of taking the shoebox of receipts to the accountant. In 2021 we need to have access to up-to-date financial data in a format that is easy to interpret. Phoenix provides this in a program that specifically focuses on Agriculture. It is intuitive, current and it really helps us make informed financial decisions for our business.

Phoenix is a fabulous financial program and I feel it is definitely the best one of its type for our farming business. Because Phoenix is designed for farmers and rural businesses, its creators and support staff understand the challenges of distance, location and technology that we go through.

There is not a one-size fits all mentality that other financial packages have and one example of this is not only having a cloud-based service but also a desktop option. This is important as many of us in rural and regional NSW still do not have amazing internet.
