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.

I love the app and gives me accounting on the go. Helps me track invoices and profits with ease.

Anonymous Reviewer

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

Pros

The software is a low code solution helping development cycles being 6 - 10 times faster. What i like is that we are able to minimize coding thanks to the visual modeller that ships with the solution.

John P.

Awesome platform for creating great (mobile) applications.

Great app platform for creating great applications.

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.

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

Mendix is a licensed system which make it inaccessible for smaller budgets. Some versions contain annoying bugs.

ayesha m.

The mobile app deployment system through PhoneGap is confusing. Native themes are visually slightly outdated.

Patrick P.

The licence system makes Mendix unaccessible for smaller budgets. Some Mendix versions can contain annoying bugs.
