Emily S

Great! So much better than Quickbooks.

2016-10-05

Great product. Makes my accounting so much easier. It is really great because it's all online. However it would be good if they could have it so you can schedule invoices to be sent at a later date.

Pros

Online, easy to use and share

Cons

No way to send invoices at a later date.

The most versatile and feature rich accounting software I have ever seen!

2018-03-31

Able to use the software on my phone and send invoices from it.

Pros

I love the mobile app that allows me to send online invoices and also notifies me when they have been opened and viewed. I also like that I can have my bank transactions synced with the software.

Cons

I wish there was a level between the starter and standard plan that allowed for sending unlimited invoices.

Helpful for invoicing and checking balance

2018-12-21

It definitely has helped me with streamlining my invoicing - but I should do more with it!

Pros

I can send invoices directly to my clients AND see when they are paid - really handy!

Cons

I feel that there is a lot more functionality that is not entirely intuitive to use so Iam probably underusing hte software.

Take control of your finances

2018-11-28

Streamlined finances! Easy invoicing, payroll, tax management and more!

Pros

It's fantastic just how much functionality Xero has - I use it for budgeting, managing finances, sending invoices, doing taxes, and so much more.

Cons

They don't support all banks :( And you can't really use it internationally - They do support most currencies but if you have banks with many nations, it gets difficult. They also don't support small banks (Monzo, Revolut etc if you're in Europe)

Great, intuitive product

2018-07-24

It helps me run my business more smoothly by managing everything financial related to my business. Because it's intuitive I save time and frustration not having to learn the program.

Pros

I like that it is easy to do what I need to do to run my business--create and send invoice, integrate with a payment system and my online scheduler (Acuity), track expenses.

Cons

It says that it syncs with my bank, but it has not been reliable (I have to download transactions).

Comparable to most other cloud accounting software, nothing special

2018-09-24

Support is vital with cloud accounting software, you shouldn't have to wait for a month to resolve simple queries or send simple invoices

Pros

Integrates with lots of 3rd party apps and zapier to streamline workflows and automation, but nothing most webhooks couldn't do.

Cons

Really bad support. Support wont respond for up to 30 days and they'll continue to bill for an additional 30 days after your cancellation, which is unheard of in the age of saas.

Incredibly helpful for business owners

2018-12-04

I have only had to deal with the customer service team once, and it was an easy, helpful experience.

Pros

I love the Xero to Xero ease of sending invoices. The ability to quickly create invoices and send them through the Xero network has really reduced the amount of time I was spending before I got the software.

Cons

Nothing really, I think it's a great piece of software.

Essential for businesses and built to scale

We are now using the Xero network key which means businesses also using Xero can send invoices to our Xero automatically and that is awesome.

Pros

Xero network key Group Contacts Auto bank feeds Time and cost efficiency

The Digital Heart of the Company

2018-01-11

Pros

We have expanded its base functionality with its API (We have shipping software that we auto send the invoices to Xero from).

Cons

The system doesn't remember your last selected dates on the reports. Doing year end, if I select Jan to Dec, and leave the report and come back, it should remember it. People tend to do the same dates in the same session.

Xero make accounting very easy even if you're a newbie.

2017-11-14

Xero is for me the best alternative /competitor for QuickBooks. Love the smoothness and the features are flawless. I got to try out the trail version and I'm impressed at what the capabilities are. Good recommendation for accounting in the cloud.

Pros

- Best advantage above some other great cloud accounting systems is the multi currency feature - Great invoicing features: send automated invoice reminders, customize templates, bulk invoicing. - Inventory: Bulk import, best seller tracking, untracked and tracked items. - Connect Apps to increase effective accounting, inventory management or sales.

Cons

- Some like cloud based systems, others don't. Thing is you have to have an internet connection in order to work. - For enterprise purposes, you might look for a more advanced system. But this software covers almost every aspect of running a good business.

Great accountung software for small and all sizes business

2019-02-28

Very good software, just a little expensive, especially if you work with different currencies and have to buy the more expensive version.

Pros

. - creating and sending an invoice from the software with the possibility of paying with PayPal for example makes being paid a lot easier. - xero TV is a great tool to finding answers and discovering features that xero offers.

Cons

Xero is a great software. There's not many cons to it. I would say that it can take a wild to learn how to use all the features and witch features you really need for your type of business.

Almost A Home Run

2015-11-21

There are two huge problems (at least for me) that I've suggested they address: 1) the email that gets sent as a cover when you send an invoice to a customer is awful.

Pros

See above for details.

Cons

I used Xero for reviewing clients' invoices and checking our collectibles.

2018-05-05

Pros

Xero makes it easy for us to send an invoice to our corporate, medium and small business clients.

Cons

One thing that I noticed on the platform is it doesn't allow to create multiple entries from one company. Like we have client A and they have lots of projects with us. We wanted to create like client A1, A2, A3 in the contacts info so that we know who's the one in-charge for each project. But our accountant told us that it would appear in the invoice as client A1, A2, and A3 in the invoice instead of just client A only. He said it would create confusion on the person in-charge for the payments since it's not their usual company name. We contacted Xero about that and they said they will work on the feature and hopefully it will be added in the future. Where you can entire Client A with someone as the contact person and Client A with someone as the contact person. The last time I know you can really just create one contact entry for each client.
