Pros

The ease of creating a quote, changing it to an invoice once the client has accepted it, is a great add on. The ability to add inventory items on the fly is very welcoming.
Finances are easier to keep up to date and more frequently, the software updates are seamless, the reports are great, the integrations are outstanding, and the service is super.
On the dashboard you can see clearly, outstanding invoices and overdue invoices. This is essential for our team to access these numbers quickly and clearly.

Pros

It's easy to invoice my clients by sending them invoices directly via Kashoo. It's recommended by my CPA and the reports make him happy.
Ability to view accounts, excellent customer service, helpful tutorials.
Was using Kashoo every day and thanks to it I knew every cent is counted and on its place. Another thing I liked very much - nice reports.

Cons

Remember clear that when there was some technical problem the take no accountability. First It made me angry but then everything arranged.
Constant problems with integrated software for synching with bank & transactions. EXTREMELY poor customer service and it's ALWAYS the other software regardless of the problem.
There is no simple customer sales reports available. Quite ridiculous for a financial platform.

Cons

Some functions are confusing for example, to overwrite GST or PST. There is no formal instruction on how to perform these functions.
Dealing with vendor credits is a pain when you pay by cheque.
I really dislike that the multi-currency support completely cripples the Mobile App. It's forced us to use a less efficient workflow, which loses critical data related to exchange rates.

Xero

Pretty Full featured, but missing some QoL adjustments

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Overall, it's quite full featured. Tracks everything as expected. Love their advisor network and their integrations.

Cons

Maybe it's because I'm using an account which was giving to me by our accountant, but some things aren't what I expect. There's a lack of polish in a good amount of areas. 1) Bank sync is kind of broken. Maybe this is a Canada thing though. 2) No Adjustment entry. What if I wanted to make a manual adjustment entry? Can't do it, as far as I can tell. 3) Don't understand the purpose of the...

Kashoo

Probably the best Cloud Accounting software there is

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Super intuitive to use. Everything is laid out efficiently. Everything also works as expected. Mistakes are easy to spot and correct.

Cons

Lack of support with accountants who actually use them. They need to get accountants to use them somehow, and create a network like Xero did, as I found that a super effective way to convince users to adopt it.

Kashoo

The only real alternative to Xero

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have been using Kashoo for a few weeks now. The product itself works great and is easy to use, though some features could be more intuitive (double taxes for e.g.) Support is awesome - and the solution is highly configurable. I have tried Wave and Quickbooks before - If you are in Canada - this is certainly the way to go, as this has Canadian payroll integrations built in (hint: there is more than payroll provider you can use !) This is the only real competitor to Xero (which I haven't tried). Amazing!

Pros

- So far - everything is configurable - Great online documentation - Integration with payroll - The service is amazing

Cons

- Some features are not out of the box or not intuitive enough, so you have to ping-pong support even after browsing through documentation. Luckily, support is amazing and answers politely, accurately and within a few hours. e.g.: - Double taxes which apply in some provinces - was able to figure it out with support - French Invoices (hey, we're in Canada and Kashoo is Canadian!) - was able to figure it out with support (had to do the HTML myself, but the tool permits that which is better than Quickbooks and Wave I have tried before)

Xero vs. Kashoo

See how Xero and Kashoo stack up against each other by comparing features, pricing, ratings, integrations, security & more.
