Overall Satisfaction

  • User Interface is clean and easy to use
  • Invoice customization/branding
  • Great tools for developers to integrate their own systems
  • Localization. Invoices can be customized to pretty much anything we want, but It would be great if the software could allow to change the menus and opttions to another language
  • Hassle-Free Accounting
The software meets all our expectations

Product Usage

Evaluation and Selection

Quickbooks Desktop Client
Quickbooks Online

Xero offered the best mix of features + customizations. Freshbooks actually came in very close, but we went with Xero because we have more flexibility. Oh! and their API is great :)


There is no implementation. This is cloud-based software


I received an e-mail a couple of days after I enrolled asking if I had any questions and that I could contact a specific person for questions. It's great to have a breathing living person that I can go to with ease (in case I don't find help in the forums/faq/help section)


Very easy to use. Guides you step by step on every action that need to be taken


Haven't experienced any outages yet


  • Invoice Generation System fed from our main LOB application
We have a system that keeps track of customer billable time. At the end of the month our hour tracking program sums up all client time and automatically creates an invoice for each one using Xero's API.

Integration was done in less than a day thanks to the Xero API and an open-source wrapper for .NET that the company hosts on github.
