Using Xero for 2 years. Beats Quicken by a long shot.

2017-06-13

Amazing syncing capacity.

Pros

It actually syncs and works, as opposed to Quicken and quickbooks that have so many glitches it is ridiculous.

Cons

Little pricey. Software is only used for accounting once a month in my case. I however syncs like 10 different accounts for us. Amazing.

Simple Accounting system

2016-05-26

We moved to Xero to replace Quicken and our expense tracking software.

Pros

*Simple Invoicing *Simple Expense Reporting, including mobile app for real-time receipt capture *Great system

Cons

*Very few *Wish we could setup email triggers so that when invoices were marked paid by someone on the team, others could automatically be notified

A simple web-based bookkeeping suite with useful app integrations and bank feeds

2018-05-28

As a new business owner with no prior accounting experience or education, Xero has been an excellent way to keep our business running smoothly.

Pros

As a user of Vend POS we are able to integrate using an extension with Xero, which simplifies our stock control and invoice payment and reconciliation workflow tremendously. The Xero suite has been a simple experience and we have been using it for Payroll for a year as well. Our CPAs are able to access and use the data to work on our tax returns as well.

Cons

There are more commonly used web-based bookkeeping and accounting suites that may be more suitable for more complex businesses such as Quicken where the adoption and recognition of terms, reports, workflows is already there.

Great business accounting software!

2016-08-27

At first I found this approach confusing as I was so used to quicken. With assistance from tech support, I was up and running very quickly!

Pros

Simple update of data, excellent report system. Help is 5 stars. As mentioned above, I had a bit of friction in transition to this system, and the help i received was quick and thorough. They made the transition much easier in this way. Greatly appreciated!

Cons

Not sure I have any. One bank update seems to lag a few days, but i that is the Bank, not Xero. My other accounts update quickly and on a daily basis.

Recommendations to others considering Xero

If you have a hard time at first, get help from the help system. Email them! They are awesome and will work with you to get you on your way. Once you get over that hump it is smooth sailing. They will also set a time to screen share and walk you through your set up issues. Extremely great support!!
