Here are just a few reasons I love Xero:
- It's Easy: Compared to traditional accounting systems Xero is a doddle to use - which also means you don't have to leave it all to your book keeper or accountant. Creating invoices, paying bills and managing expenses can all be done quickly and easily.
- It's Secure: Because it's based in the cloud, not on your computer, it has state of the art security built in. It's also continually backed up and saved, so even if you have your laptop stolen, or your server crashes, all of your information is safe and sound.
- Access it Anywhere: It doesn't matter where you are in the world, or what computer you are using, your accounts are always to hand. Xero's fantastic app means you can easily do many key tasks on your phone or tablet.
- It's Sophisticated: Just because it's simple, doesn't mean it's stupid! It's incredibly capable and provides all the accounting functionality most businesses are ever likely to need. And if it doesn't, there's probably an app you can bolt onto it to fill the gap.
It's all about the Apps
What makes a smartphone so great? It's not so much the phone itself (though I'll be geeky and admit they're pretty cool), but it's what the apps that you download for it allow you to do.
Xero's taken a similar approach and allows companies to easily create bolt on apps to provide additional features. From integrating to your ecommerce software, to sophisticated inventory management, or even just really effective payment reminders, there are a whole suite of apps for Xero out there that can transform the way your business operates.
