User Reviews for Xero

  Essential for businesses and built to scale

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.

Hi everybody I think XERO has saved my life , I can now read and understand my accounts I have got my debtors down to a good level, have money in the bank ( not a lot hard times ) also I have been able to deal with bad paying customers quickly and on top of that 2 of them have gone broke but I got my money long be for as XERO puts the bad ones in my face as soon as I turn it on. Do have 1 complaint can they - you at XERO use every day words as we are not Accountant's we do not use the terms Xero and the number people use and I do find I make mistakes as I don't sit on Xero or speak like an accountant all day long im just a small operator and do many things all day plain language would be great example money out money in tell me all I need to know . Thank you Rob Strother

  Don't hesitate...

We used MYoB for years but became progressively frustrated by its lack of investment and constant server issues. A cloud-based solution was needed. Our accountants referred us to Xero, which was also being used by a colleague of ours. We switched in 2012 and haven't looked back since. It's got a good balance of quick-overview info and depth when you need it. Very simple to operate and we're loving it.
