9 reasons why we know that you will love Xero

1. Data entry slashed

Why, in this day and age of electronic automation, do we persist with systems that require a printout of a bank statement (or an internet transaction list), then manually re-key that same information back into an electronic format, and then go through the process of manually reconciling what we’ve done to check we haven’t made any data-entry mistakes! What a waste of your time and money.

Xero automatically brings 'live feeds' of your bank account and credit card transaction data straight in. No keyboards touched. No download chore. No upload chore. Go have a glass of wine or put your feet up instead.

2. Data entry slashed (again!)

Xero is clever: not only does it automatically learn from what you have allocated transactions to previously, but using the ‘Rules’ function you can easily instruct Xero to know that certain types of transactions should be coded (according to your Chart of Accounts) in certain ways, ensuring such transactions occur automatically from then on. Go on. Grab another wine. You have time now.

3. Better decision making

Old-fashioned software that makes you mind your own business (code for 'manually do your own bookkeeping') also puts your business at a disadvantage because your accounting data is lagging behind reality. The data entry issue (apart from the costly waste of it) causes a delay in your accounting data becoming up-to-date. A modern business needs information that is real-time, always up-to-date. How else can you make effective business decisions?

4. Mobility, flexibility, lifestyle

You'll love this one. You can access your accounting data and management dashboard in Xero from anywhere, from any device with an internet connection. You can see your individual account balances, outstanding invoices, overall cash position, and more. These days, you can run your business even if you’re not physically at your business premises. Go on, call that travel agent now.

5. Real-time speed

Being online and always knowing you (and we) are working with the most recent version of your accounting data, we can help you in real-time. You call up with a question, we log in with a few clicks, look at your Xero at the same time you are, and answer your questions on the spot. Easy! And fast.

6. Data files, gone

Because Xero is online accounting software, you can kiss goodbye the hassle of sending disks or transferring large accounting data files. Life's too short to have to deal with that anymore.

7. Version control issues, gone

Xero allows you to store PDF or JPG copies of invoices and receipts, and also lets you take photos of your receipts for easy inclusion in your (and your team members') expense claims. It is efficient and avoids the accumulation of lots of receipts. Again, real-time is the key. And easy.

8. Free online support

Xero includes free online support and their training resources are world class. This means it's easy to find answers and get up to speed with Xero. We include training in our package when we get you started with Xero. This makes sure you get off on the right foot with your Xero implementation.

9. Better communication

We find that Xero encourages better communication and a closer relationship between accountant and client. The ease of logging in together, looking at the same data together, and moving at speed just makes everything more simple.
