Xero has fast become the software of choice for business owners and bookkeepers. Rather than making improvements on existing software, it was designed and built from the “ground up”. The result is bookkeeping software that provides many benefits over traditional software such as MYOB and Quicken.
Because of these benefits, we only use Xero to our clients. Its easy set up, automation options, accessibility, security, functionality and bright future is impressive and as such it is the only Bookkeeping software we use.
Xero Set Up
Because Xero operates on The Cloud, there is no need to install software, manage upgrades, store files and back up your work. Xero does all this for you on the cloud! All you need to do is create a user account and log in.
Tasks that have traditionally been performed manually can be automated in Xero. This includes having your business bank accounts and credit cards feed directly into the system. Rules are then set up to reconcile regular bank transactions with general ledger transactions . Automation can save lots of time and money!
Your Xero file can be accessed by you or anyone you authorise – such as your bookkeeper – from just about any device. You and your bookkeeper can access your Xero file from any PC, laptop, iPad or other suitable device as long as it is connected to the internet.
The software and your file is securely stored on the cloud so there is no need for you to store data on a device such as a PC or laptop. Your file is regularly backed up to ensure none of your data is lost.
Of course no piece of software can do everything. Therefore, a number of third party apps are available to do things Xero is not programmed to do. Sophisticated apps are available for complex tasks such as fixed asset management, inventory management, electronic file sharing and much more. If you need any third party apps, we can connected them to your Xero file. As with everything else – this is done in the cloud.
Xero is relatively new on the scene and is growing by the day. Developers work around the clock to build new functions that will soon make it the only choice in cloud-based bookkeeping software.
