    We are a pretty unique business because we deal with bookkeeping, marketing, and HR and across all 3 departments, we have been able to successfully use the tool. Other software we have tried usually caters to one industry at a time.
    Veronica M Duckett | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Xero

    Xero is a 10-point software since it streamlines accounting and financial processes with great agility, generating immediate productivity. I recommend using all its features since, from creating reports to paying bills, the whole process is easy and does not require much knowledge. We can use it remotely with our phones and still build fluidity, plus it can be integrated with Salesforce, building even more power for short-term results.
    Bernadette Johnsen | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Avaza

    • It switches between Kanban view, List view, and Gantt charts which fits varying preferences!
    • It helps us work smart by creating dependencies and linking tasks to calendars
    • It has a clean, intuitive dashboard that's very easy to navigate
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Xero

    • Reporting (customizing look and contents and the ability to add multiple comparative periods is brilliant and not found in many other competitors.
    • Bank feeds. The way they organize bank feed and subsequent matching or coding is very user-friendly for non-accountants and fast for accountants.
    • Can file VAT returns and is MTD compliant in UK.
    • Customer support has been helpful (at least in my experience).
    Mohsin Ejaz | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Avaza

    • The interface and taxonomy could use an update, sometimes it's hard to figure out where things logically are or should be.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Xero

    • Overall it is a great platform and quite comprehensive for US based users.
    • However, if we focus on multinational companies that want to integrate the information of different companies in several countries within the same solution, we find the need to carry out reports outside the platform to provide the accounting structure and compliance necessary in countries outside the US.

    In addition to the matters covered in this review, my reason for renewing this product is that Xero's functionality and the constant updates that the company provides, makes the software even more business friendly. The software therefore builds a brand loyalty among customers.

    It has deep functionality, and it's easy to use for invoicing, quoting, financial reporting, and customer management. This product manages financial information for small business owners in a unique way. The phone interface is really good as well-meaning I can keep on top of the finances on my phone and feel confident about the financial decisions I'm making.

    We have been actively using and 100% Xero based for our ecommerce accounting practice for over 4 years. There has on been one real outage for more than 5 minutes. Xero was open and transparent about the outage, what they were doing to resolve the issue, and provided 15 minute updates. Showing how they care about their customers and partners. Plus, showing that their customers care too, were understanding, and went surfing or in our case took a nap. Couldn't run our business without Xero as a partner.

    Pages generally load quickly, but it's a fairly common occurrence to have pages taking a bit longer than I'd like to load (as in, 4+ seconds). Occasionally I have to refresh a page to get it to work. Bank feed and integrations tend to be slow in general, but that could easily be due to API latency on the side of the other parties. Most of the time, though, the bank feeds refresh before I login so it's not a huge problem. Not necessarily good performance compared to a local app like QuickBooks desktop, but definitely good performance for a cloud application. Room for growth? yes.

There is a range of content from product training to real world webinars from their partners. Xero is beautiful accounting software and their training is the same.

    If it can be done, time the implementation near a new fiscal year so you can start clean. Otherwise, you have to go back and do historical data from the beginning of the fiscal year, which can be brain draining.

    Solely the ease of use. This has saved me so much time on day-to-day tracking it is astonishing. Not only does it make it super easy to send invoices, but it also makes it easy to print invoices off, eases the process of partial payments, and keeps good track of all notes made to the account.

    Over 600 plus apps available for integration and easy to create standard charts of account and report templates to implement across multiple entities. Same pricing regardless of number of transactions or users. Real benefit is variety of integrated apps that allow you to automate processes and have functionality that 10 years ago was only available in ERP systems costing hundreds of thousands.
