Likelihood to Recommend

DATABASICS Expense

Ability to sync with many other systems and flexible systems. I do not recommend for areas with a bad internet connection.
Mohammad Hourani, MBA, CMA, CIA, CertIFR | TrustRadius Reviewer

Xero

Xero is well suited to my [organization] across all facets of the business. It easily handles payroll which is integrated with our Deputy account for a completely streamlined payroll process that requires very little user input. It also syncs with our point of sale, Lightspeed (Kounta) which removes any need for manual sales/revenue data entry. Managing expenses and bills to pay is also extremely easy, quick, and intuitive.

Pros

DATABASICS Expense

  • Mobile application.
  • Easy to attach supporting documents.
  • The approver can approve from a mobile phone.
Mohammad Hourani, MBA, CMA, CIA, CertIFR | TrustRadius Reviewer

Xero

  • Easy to set-up/use. It took me only 15-minutes for the initial set-up.
  • Provide necessary integration with other applications we use. We integrate Xero with Expensify and JustWorks.
  • Cost-effective and therefore much cheaper than other plans out there.
  • Real-time link with our bank, which provides real-time account balances of what's in our bank account.
  • Standard reports already built-in.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

DATABASICS Expense

  • Allow money returns from an advance to be reflected in the advance balance. If an employee settles an advance by returning cash, it does not reflect that in the system.
Mohammad Hourani, MBA, CMA, CIA, CertIFR | 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.

Xero has a very clean design and a pleasant, easy-to-navigate GUI. It was immediately understandable how to reconcile book charges without a tutorial. Creating and sending invoices are fairly straight forward; and financial reports are easily customizable. Xero also has a support database that gives quick solutions to most issues.

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.

Support has always been responsive and quickly resolved any questions I have. The only reason I don't give full points is because there's no way to call for immediate help. I'm fine with this because I don't need it badly enough to pay for it

All of Xero's training is online and available for anyone (business owner or accountants) to learn and become experts in their system. 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.

Alternatives Considered

DATABASICS Expense

It costs less. Flexible employees allow you to customize the system to fit your requirements.
Mohammad Hourani, MBA, CMA, CIA, CertIFR | TrustRadius Reviewer

Xero

For the purpose of which we use Xero, I have not used any alternative systems. However, for certain aspects of it such as expense management, we decided to go with Webexpenses to replace the expense management features of Xero. This was because Xero lacked the automation, control and visibility we needed to correctly manage our company's expenses.

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.
