The Brixx Roadmap

An overview of the future of Brixx over the coming months. This is not a complete list of our feature backlog and is subject to change but it provides a good indication of what is on the way.

Currently in active development

Featured project: Xero integration

We’ve nearly finished our Xero integration. Our partnership has been approved by Xero and we’ll be launching early 2021.

The primary goals are:

  • Creating a new Brixx plan and forecast from your Xero accounts and data
  • Matching your Xero accounts to equivalents in Brixx to automate actuals vs forecast

Once you’ve connected a plan to Xero, you’ll no longer have to enter actuals manually into Brixx, it will seamlessly update.

Actuals to date in reports
The ability to display actual periods to date followed by your forecast.

Improved Xero actuals vs forecast format for one to one matching
Currently, the Xero reports add a new drilldown level above your plan structure for your Xero accounts. If you are matching one to one Xero accounts to Brixx components then you may prefer to see your Brixx plan structure instead of this extra level. We are developing this as an optional switch.

Improved report formats
We have a variety of format improvements including decimal controls and grouping figures by thousands.

Prepayments
Adding prepayment forecasting options to income and expense components.

Purchase more asset
Expand the asset purchase entry into a table to manage multiple asset purchases in the same Asset component

Forecast changes in Tax rates
For VAT, Sales Tax and GST rates you currently have one set of values for the entire forecast. With this update, you can set up rate changes in the future.

Inventory revamp
Two primary improvements:

  • The automatic sale of manual purchases
  • Set a level of inventory to maintain

Taxable profit adjustment
A new field in tax settings for manually adjusting your taxable profit amount.

Taxable profit exclusions in components
A switch inside each component to exclude it from the taxable profit calculation used for corporation tax.

Being planned

Compare plan
Use the new variance reports to compare two different plans (scenarios) against each other.

Actuals vs forecast on the Dashboard
Our current charts are mostly designed to visualise your forecast. We want to also represent your actual data too for quick comparisons.

KPI report
Dedicated report for showing financial KPIs such as profitability and gearing.

Tax report
A report that displays all the financial impact of your forecast taxes in one place.

The Future

Weekly inputting and reporting
Adding a more detailed frequency to forecast in and report on.

Unit-based Asset Purchases
Control asset purchases and depreciation through a number of units control.

Unit-based operational costs
Control asset purchases and depreciation through a number of units control.

Drive more forecasts based on units
We are looking into expanding the current functionality we have in Cost of Sales and Inventory where their forecasts are driven by the values in a connected Income component. We’d like to expand this functionality in more areas. For example: driving costs based on staff numbers

Lead generator component
A component that generates leads based on marketing/sales spend and forecast conversion rates. The leads could then drive revenue in income components.

Plan consolidation
Combine the outputs of two or more plans. An extra drilldown level for plans followed by individual plan structure.

Lease component
A new component to handle the forecast of assets leased to your business.

Quickbooks integration
Same goals as our Xero integration for quickbooks.

Detailed flexes
A flex panel that can be used to flex ‘all income’ or ‘all cost of sales’ for example.

Custom dashboard
Create your own charts and customise the dashboard layout.
