Overall Satisfaction with Xero

Swapped Sage 50 for Xero around 4 years ago and haven't looked back since. Saves much time and effort, as well as being significantly cheaper than Sage. We integrate with several other pieces of software which plug into Xero that have allowed us to streamline several different processes. Would highly recommend it.
  • Auto syncs bank account.
  • Allows direct expenses to be input.
  • Integrates payroll.
  • More customizable reports.
  • Multi currency expenses.
  • Ability to pay by direct debit.
  • Month-end accounts are now produced on the second working day of the month.
  • 90% less errors.
  • Significantly less time spent on accounts.
I never used the cloud version of Sage, but since moving to Xero, we have saved significant amounts of time and money.
From knowing nothing about Xero to feeling very competent with it didn't take long. The reports are mostly all designed for you, and the auto-transfer from Sage was basically faultless.
Xero has allowed me to access the platform from mobile devices and while out of the office. With Sage that was practically impossible. This has allowed so much flexibility and was genuinely essential during the lockdowns. Xero has made doing our accounts from anywhere a possibility, which has allowed me to travel with work a lot more frequently.
The auto switch from Sage was close to faultless and was very quick.
