Product Details

What is Xero?

Xero is an online accounting software platform for small businesses and their advisors, 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. Xero integrates with over 800 third-party applications, covering everything from inventory and logistics to cash flow, project management, customer relationship management, e-commerce and more.

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.

Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

I have stated already reporting oh.... [in my experience] Xero does not do a good job when you have to remove and redo. Depending on if it's posted it will remain in the system when you have a conversion balance you cannot enter a journal entry. Very often when you have a new company you put in their beginning balances but to fix it you cannot enter age. The number (age) will not reflect in the financial reports.

I rate it with 10 points since it is a simple software that allows us to be efficient without requiring great knowledge on our part. It also has features that allow us to promote fluidity at work. Xero is the ideal software to achieve good results, improve integration and determine good benefits to reduce manual errors in the financial department.

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.

It does most of the things the way it is supposed to do.

I have gripe with their search functionality, it should be able to search across all your records.

Their supplier and customer pages design isn't the most user friendly and it's not possible to glance at details of each transaction without opening them

It is a fairly robust platform, but it is NOT an ERP and it focuses on being a good General Ledger. The functions will take some getting used to, but when you are familiar with the platform it becomes very evident that there is the logic behind what was initially seen as madness.

I like Xero, it is very user-friendly and makes my life easier. There are still improvements to be done in terms of reports, user profile set up, and bank feeds for banks outside the US.

The platform is very straightforward and simple. It doesn't try and do too much and has a simple and easy-to-use interface.

When I first set it up 2 years ago, I was able to do most of the initial setup myself without much assistance from customer support. Once I successfully set it up, I had very few issues. I have been able to use the tools and resources largely without having to get additional help from reading Help articles and most of the questions I typically have are more about accounting itself since I don't have a background in this area.

Takes a bit of training but once you get it it’s very simple and intuitive. As I mentioned earlier updates can throw a spanner in the works but only from a Ux perspective. It looks different and things are in new places but the background functionality remains the same. Support has always been able to assist with issues.

Perfect accounting software. Couldn't ask for more, and couldn't be better. Well thought out from onboarding to day-to-day usage in close to every aspect of business needs. I use it for one-man businesses all the way to companies that have close to a hundred employees with thousands of transactions and it works perfectly.

Easy to interpret how to do things and the online free learning portal gives so much information. Their customer service is also easy to access and sends a support ticket if the answer can't be found online. The dashboard is clear and the tabs for each area are very clear. The bank feed is easy to use and scheduling bill payments is easy. It's a good software for bookkeeping/accounting where you interact with the client a lot because it's easy to show them where items are or what needs to be done. Eg: Scheduling bills for payment so they can see upcoming scheduled dates for supplier batch payments.

Generally easy to use. The layout is very clean and the menus make sense. The design is quite intuitive and therefore as a user, I can easily find what I am looking for. I also find the help section has answers to self-guide any issues or new tasks that I want to do or learn how to do in the program.
