Pros

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

Pros

The software does what it promises and has been a great asset to our business model.
Allows an easy approval of PRs with a friendly and fast UI that provides all the context I need for approval.
Excellent Customer Support, I'd rank it among the best. You can actually CALL them.

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

The most issue of this is that lack of immediate images , so users are unable to generate their own check image to examine.
Weve been using it for so many years and we have no intention in switching to a different software.
The only downside is the reconciliation report can be a bit difficult to work with in terms of bank reconciliations, etc.
