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.

Pros

I love that the UI is so intuitive and easy to navigate. Their support team is the best and I love the reports that this software is able to produce.

If you have employees and you want to increase performance, this solution is complete. HR departments will thank you, you will save time and headaches.

Great future vision product, it has more than I need to manage my team, recruit and track people, leave, benefits, compensation, performance and more. Even better I LOVE the Social Collaboration tool.

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.

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.

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

CB

Chaz B.

Cons

The system consistently slows down after a few days/weeks/months. Sometimes this is due to a FinancialForce upgrade, and sometimes it has been due to bad code written for us by our FF consultant.

Subject to user error, so train employees diligently.

Great startup product

Reviewed 4 years ago

Very unclear about the ease of moving all data to upstream ERP systems like Netsuite and FinancialForce.

Pros

Mobile optimized design. Nice solution for startups and small companies. Gusto is great for small company payroll and the interface is easy to use.

Cons

Pricing should be going down, not up. Would have like to see the service features increasing at the entry price point. Really expected unlimited banking transactions and an increase in invoices\bills, not same old. Recent pricing changes starting November 1 looks like they are just aping QB pricing and features, very disappointing. Not as easy to customize and run reports as QB.

Pros

Web based accounting software that covers many aspects including Core accounting, fund accounting, expense management, budgeting and forecasting, financial reporting, project accounting, billing and invoicing and payroll management.

Cons

Learning the system was a task but after learning all that it had to offer and how to use it this software is an asset to our firm!!!

Full Suite Accounting Software

Reviewed 2 years ago

It works and is now widely used across the world, which makes being able to use it a good skill.

Pros

This enables any small business to manage the income and expenses and full financial statements with relative ease.

Cons

As with any accounting software it is highly dependent on the accounting inputs, which need to be accurate.

Xero Accounting

Reviewed 3 years ago

I don't like Xero at all. There marketing campaigns that say it's the best platform.....Please don't fool yourself Xero Accounting Developers. It is an ugly system with primitive layouts.

Pros

There is absolutely nothing I like about Xero. It looks very old like the layouts were done in the early '90s. It is easy to use but nothing spectacular about this software.

Cons

Lacks basic features like to print a delivery note. Maybe these Americans who have written the code knows nothing about accounting. Please take some lessons from Palladium Accounting, Sage Accounting or OneUp.
