Overall Satisfaction with Xero

We are a golf tour operator and I use Xero for all accounting in the business including sales and purchases and payroll. My Accountant has access to it for formal accounting functions and for advising us.
  • Invoicing.
  • Purchases.
  • Reporting.
  • Payroll.
  • Payment to accounts payable by credit card.
  • Saves time.
  • Eradicates errors.
  • Can’t function without it.
[Xero is] great software.
Absolutely. I can see at a glance the P&l, which enables us to investigate and put measures in place to ensure there is no overspend on any category of costs. Also, mid-codings are easily identified. I could not have managed the effects of this pandemic without Xero. I have had to reschedule golf tours on at least 2 occasions and some on 6 occasions. [Without Xero] I don’t think we would have been awarded the level of the grant we received from the government due to the loss of business in the pandemic. With the reports, I was able to apply and illustrate the effect of the pandemic on our business.
[I gave it this rating because of its capability] for payment of an invoice by credit card through Stripe and the enablement of being paperless through saving documents and invoices.
