It helps us to keep tabs on what we're using and what rates. We are also able to use it to draft invoices to bill to the government and 3rd parties for work we do on their behalf or at their behest. It makes a lot of our billing easier to process and account for.,Inventory Management - It's really easy to add goods/services and catalog them.
Invoicing - It provides detailed and customizable invoices for partner's organizations.
UI - It's a pretty easy to use software and very intuitive.,Auto-population - while this feature is useable there are always moments where something doesn't auto-populate the way I would expect it to.
Administrator controls - It would be nice to allow different users different levels of access.
Integration capacity - It would be really nice to integrate with the other inventory software we use.
Barcode scanning - we could use the ability to use a bar code scanner to speed up the inventory process.,9,It has helped grow the services we could provide to clients.
It has helped streamline our inventory management.
It has made re-ordering much simpler.,Imonggo,Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro, ImonggoEvan LoebReconcile easily and on-the-go with Xero - Could save you hours!2019-01-08T22:15:19.607ZMy COO uses Xero online and has the app on her phone for my business. It is perfect during traveling because you are able to easily keep track of receipts by simply taking a picture and categorizing it right away. Before, it was a challenge to keep track of all receipts and categorizing accounts efficiently and effectively. Another way our department uses it is by creating invoices, quotes, add bills, contacts and uploading files to inbox via the mobile application.,Add Receipts - Huge strength especially while on the go and traveling that you are able to take a picture of the receipt and categorize it right when you make a purchase (business expense).
Keeping track of Sales - it's great to see all of the money incoming and outgoing over the months.
Reports - easily to export reports for financial, sales, purchases, tax, accounting, fixed assets, and inventory.,Notifications to reconcile transactions during specific timeframes would be extremely helpful.
Education and videos on how to use the software more effectively.,10,It gives me peace of mind that our receipts are getting saved digitally as well as filed.
The return on time is substantial.... we used to spend hours and hours in Quickbooks and it is a lot easier and faster to file in Xero.,,Infusionsoft, WordPress, Authorize.NetTamara ThompsonXero - the future of accounting software2019-02-23T15:14:45.868ZXero is being used in two ways at our organization, as our in-house accounting system and as the accounting software we recommend to clients that hire us for their work.,Xero has a clean user-friendly interface.
There are strong integrations with many complimentary applications.
The software is constantly being updated.
Since Xero was built for the web the application runs extremely smoothly.,The reporting function can certainly be improved. The function is good, but I think it is an area that could be simplified more.
Update the support function; they are very responsive but I don't think you can speak to a live person easily.,10,Xero has had a positive impact on our internal accounting process - the user-friendliness has allowed me to train other members of my team to handle accounting policies.
Xero has allowed us to increase our service offerings to clients.
Xero will give us an opportunity to scale our offerings and increase our capacity.,QuickBooks Online, Accounting by Wave and Kashoo,Freshdesk, Freshsales CRM, Slack, Freshcaller, PieSync, Zapier, AWeber, Mailchimp, G SuiteJames E. Heyward CPAAffordable, Shockingly Limited By Their Own Development Choices2019-01-29T19:53:55.990ZWe use Xero to track our financial activity for three companies. The international banking integrations are very helpful for managing companies in Canada and the USA. Due to some basic functionality lacking in the billing tools, we use Freshbooks for invoicing and rely on integration between the platforms to keep billing up to date.,Bank rec is really easy and forgiving when correcting a mistake.
Basic financial reports are built in and useful.
It's popular enough that there are numerous integration options with other platforms.,No invoicing, late fees - despite years and years and thousands of clients requesting it, Xero has decided not to develop any kind of interest or late fee functionality. Their only solution is to suggest a 3rd party tool that is quite expensive.
No bundling/assembly tracking. If you are selling an item or service that requires multiple products or multiple revenue accounts, you're out of luck. Unless you want to manually make adjustments, or pay hundreds of dollars for a 3rd party tool.,4,Xero helped us to save time with tracking what has happened.,Sage 50 Accounting, QuickBooks Pro and QuickBooks OnlineRyan FreemanXero Saves Time2019-01-08T15:56:26.499ZRocket Fuel Design uses Xero to manage all our invoicing and payments as well as prepare financials for Inland Revenue and provide us with reports used to budget and forecast.,Bank Reconciliation

Xero functions as a better clearinghouse for large scale inventory than Imonggo. But it's distinguishing feature is the ability to generate invoices for clients and partners. The ability to easily make invoices really separates it from Imonggo.
My tax consultant recommended Xero because we were having a tough time keeping track of receipts while traveling. We initially had Quickbooks but not the desktop version and were very confused with the functionality.
I found with Xero's monthly reconciliations extremely helpful to make sure our money is being allocated in the right areas. It is so much easier now to manage bills & expenses.
I prefer Xero over the other options I have tried because it has a cleaner interface, operates faster on the web, has a strong API relationship with other applications and appears to be gaining ground on Quickbooks in the marketplace. QuickBooks Online is probably the most recognized but it seems like they are struggling in converting their market leading desktop software to an equivalent online offering. Intuit's online offering feels like they are stuffing the desktop version into the cloud.
Xero is very efficient and easy to use for business owners that are not a desk all day, but still want to have knowledge of the business' performance. It allows for multiple users with different permission levels so multiple employees can help to streamline the business. Xero reporting is also very easy to produce and read.
Xero hits our "maximum point" on the curves of simplicity, usability, and feature set. In my opinion it is by far the best in class, and the only reason it hasn't taken over Quickbooks entirely is that industry-standard products, no matter how inferior, are difficult to dislodge. Quickbooks needs to go away. Xero is amazing.
Xero was the easiest to use and most cost effective of all the solutions we evaluated during the procurement process. We spoke to other similar sized businesses and they highly recommended using Xero. We liked the fact it's a cloud based system meaning we can access the system and data remotely. It integrates with our recurring billing platform and our bank.
We switched off of FreshBooks to Xero. It is somewhat apples to oranges, in that FreshBooks is not a general ledger nor does it claim to be (at least at the time 2 years ago). Our business grew though and having a general ledger with reconcillation features like Xero was important to ensure accuracy in our financial reporting, filing our taxes accurately, and increasing visibility into the p/l of our business.
We selected Xero because of the fair price, the ease of use and the extensive documentation and support. I used QuickBooks for many years and I don't dislike it, but I just find Xero to be more intuitive, less cluttered and easier to use.
QuickBooks for Mac is not a viable product. PC desktop makes off-site work difficult (and hosted environments are clunky and slow). QuickBooks Online is improving, but all recent innovations seem directly in response to, and taking a lead from Xero base product. Overall, Xero is a fresher more responsive company with a great product.
I used Unleashed previously to Xero. Unleashed is a fine program, but it is more bulky and less fluid when it comes to making or adjusting an entry. I chose to make the change to xXero after some trusted recommendations and a trial run. Needless to say, I'm still with Xero and couldn't be happier.
Xero as a cloud-based solution cannot be compared with the desktop solution, especially when much of our company's business is done online. The more the market moves online, the more desktop solutions will be cumbersome and outdated. Other cloud-based solutions, such as Accounting by Wave and QuickBooks Online, which we have tried in the past, had either a slower interface or lacked some features we required.
I started with Xero in 2014 and they seemed to be the leader in online small business accounting. They seemed to have already ironed out a lot of issues and made it very easy to get started. And they quickly ramped up and ironed out solutions to problems. Plus they were extemely well priced for the simple accounting needs we had at the time.
There was no competition once I had used both products. QuickBooks Online is very clunky in comparison with no real feature benefits. The costs were comparable. Xero is much more pleasant to use day-to-day.
Previously exclusively a desktop QuickBooks "shop". Hate the version control issues and need to collect and transfer data files to get source documents. Auto bank downloads clunky and not as intuitive as Xero bank recon features. Few clients use FreshBooks - nice customer invoicing tool, but not a real accounting system. Selected Xero because it's easy to learn, dashboard view is great and bank recon makes accounting efficient and easy.
Xero is an online accounting software product for small businesses, as well as for personal finance. Xero competes most often with QuickBooks Online. Its features, beyond the ubiquitous general ledger and double-entry bookkeeping support, include invoicing with quotes, bank reconciliation, purchase order and expense management, tax management, and it is mobile-accessible. Third party apps can extend its features further.
The product is sold by subscription (a distribution model commonly known as software as a service or SaaS) requiring the payment of a monthly fee. This charge is proportionate to the number (and type) of company entities managed by the subscriber. The lowest tiered pricing option is the $9 per month Starter pack, which supports unlimited users but a limited number of transactions. The $30 Standard pack breaks open usage limits and adds e-filing and payroll options. The $70 Premium package doubles the number of supported employees on payroll from 5 to 10, and supports multiple currencies.
