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.

This program is awesome for developing organizational chart. I love it because it makes it super easy for you to do it as well.

It has all the features and functionalities that I need for my job and gives me the ability to get creative with my work. I recommend this software to anyone in the design world and beyond.

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.

Cons

More than once I had to make the same changes to a diagram cause I misplaced or lost an updated version. That is my biggest pain with visio, and is ultimately why I switched to Lucid Chart.

Formatting is the biggest challenge, especially when you have large projects it is difficult to view all and you loose track.

Using auto-arrange features can result in errors such as wrong diagram arrangement.
