Pros

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

Anonymous Reviewer

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.

RC

Ryan C.

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

HS

Pros

Customer support really is top notch. The on boarding team is fantastic and truly went out of their way to ensure we had every available resource for success.

JS

Jen S.

I do not use it for my business, but have used it as an avid fitness enthusiast for over 2 years. It is nice when gyms all over the country use this software.

ME

Mary Ellen C.

They had great integration to our existing merchant. Great membership customization, billing, customizable charts, and belt promotion system.

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.

CB

Chaz B.

Cons

No real way for instructors to leave notes for students, why not. Never use the mass email or text because its just too complicated-these things can be fixed if they gave it some attention.

JS

Jen S.

It was very overwhelming when I started using it. The app is also pretty bad, although they do update it with new features.

SS

Sean S.

Not only were we not satisfied with the software, we were being charged more than double to keep it.
