I have recently migrated 4 x group companies from Sage to Xero and the benefits are already paying dividends. Xero is so much more than an accounting system - it helps us solve lots of other business challenges too.

Xero- Beautiful accounting for both the business owner and accountant

Cristina Garza, Chief Number Cruncher || Accountingprose10th of August 17:23

As a small business owner and accountant, I have tried many accounting softwares. I was a Quickbooks Pro Advisor for five years and relied heavily on an expensive and inconsistent server to share data with clients. A forward thinking, tech savvy client mentioned Xero to me a few years ago and I blew him off. I have seen accounting software try to compete with Quickbooks and many have failed. I was afraid of ditching the my current method of working with my clients, because I didn't want to have to deal with the struggle of switching software, only to have to do it again after the business tanks or bugs in the code would cause me to become far too frustrated. After several more clients mentioned Xero, I thought I would give it a shot. I tested the software out, totally putting it through the ringer. I used a client as a beta tester and asked for feedback on it. We worked on the file together and tried our best to break the program. After a month of working on Xero, I was hooked! I took all of my clients off of the server and Quickbooks and moved them to Xero and I am so glad that I did. Highlights of Xero (from prospective of an accountant) - I can work with my clients in real time: Clients can leave us notes, can see what we are seeing, and can use Xero on smartphones and laptops- you aren't tied to an operating system - I don't have to waste time on data entry: Bank feeds are magical - I am able to achieve great results at a fraction of the cost: no software upgrades to pay for, no server costs - CPAs still get all of the data they need via Xero reports - Xero customer service is tops- Have an issue? They handle the issue quickly - Xero add ons are amazing and you accounting system can be tied with an SaaS application quickly and easily.

Simply brilliant

A verified reviewer10th of July 00:39

Have been using Xero for a year now, after switching from MYOB. So easy, I no longer need to outsource bookkeeping services - and I am emphatically not an accounting adept. Deceptively simple and intuitive, with excellent built-in support access. Live bank feeds = fast easy reconcilliations. Multiple options to monitor/manage invoices, stock control, cash flow, etc. Get it!

Essential for businesses and built to scale

Todd25th of December, 2013 01:52

Being a user of Xero for 12 months accross three businesses I can say it is by far the most simple and time efficient system I have used. Whether your a Company with 10 or 150 employees Xero can suit most sizes. The auto bank feeds, rules and reporting functions are just awesome. We cut down a 25 hour a week position it the office to 12 hours so we were absolutely wrapt. We are now using the Xero network key which means businesses also using Xero can send invoices to our Xero automatically and that is awesome. Highly recommend Xero to all get into it ASAP guys.
