Overall Satisfaction with Xero

We used Xero as a go-to platform for our financial activities. It has been well integrated into the various workflows, from the integration with our CRM (HubSpot) to quote (Pandadoc) we always found a way to keep it as a second brain for our business.

Pros

  • Invoicing
  • Closing and reports

Cons

  • Payroll
  • Localisations for Switzerland
  • Time to market - getting on very quickly with a credible operation.
  • Operability with many tools and software, making it easy to scale and switch.
Interface, price and open platform were our key criteria and Xero smashed the competition on these. It does everything better, but you have to master it and take the time and get some serious professional help to configure it. Yes local solutions like Bexio does a better job being a swiss product but it would take a week to Xero to catch up.
If you are in Switzerland and most likely to expand internationally, Xero is well suited. If you have a small business and focusing on Switzerland, therefore you have to think twice. Switzerland is, by definition, turned to the outside due to its size. So it is a good bet to start with Xero and expand, especially if you are looking to open sister companies in the UK or the US.

    Hello Everyone! It has been almost two months since we implemented our MEWS PMS. We would like to integrate MEWS with our XERO accounting system and would like your advice? Has anyone done this integration before? Which flow did you choose? Invoiced or consumed flow? And why? Pros and Cons? Also, do you know a company in Switzerland that would be able to do this integration and maybe develop something more specific to our needs (we use analytics), other than the basic integration? Thanks in advance, Miguel
