Pros

The ease of use and reputation are by far the greatest part of this product. In addition to this, the range of potential integrations is fantastic.

Really easy to submit expenses, categorise them and check the progress of you submitted expense - super easy to do all from the app.

Custom reports, Imaging, Integration with our other software. The "Favorites" shortcut tool is the best, it's a huge time saver for me.

CJ

Carisa J.

Their customer support is amazing. So knowledgeable, helpful and kind.

Michele C.

Cons

There are no delivery notes/packing slips. They tout a "workaround" but be warned, it's exactly 10 extra clicks so it's really not an option if you need this feature.

FM

Fergus M.

Our main complaint is that Xero stopped doing payroll in 2018, so now you have to pay an additional fee to a payroll processor such as Gusto.

Craig F.

Changing accounting software from Xero is a horrible experience. They make it very difficult to pivot to other software.

CB

Chaz B.

Cons

The program is extremely slow and frustrating. EspeciallyReports are not running properly.

CH

Christina H.

Initial set up of a new function or application can be confusing for that reason.

PM

Patrick M.

Computer browser restrictions has limited some functionality over the years but is soon going away in the new anticipated release.
