XeroAccounting Software

Online, real-time information on your business.

Shorts were far and away the most advanced when it came down to looking at the details. Their knowledge of Xero, its inner workings and the ability to set it up were way ahead of anyone else we’d spoken to.

Businesses that have better information can make better decisions and be more successful.   Xero offers you the opportunity to see how your business is performing throughout the year which can help you capitalise on opportunities, plan better, make your business more successful and save you time.

Xero is cloud-based, it can be accessed anywhere with the internet so, there is no need to invest in new and expensive servers.  Your data is always backed up as it is held in multiple secure locations.  The cost of Xero is based on a monthly subscription and with only one month’s commitment.

Xero offers many time-saving features, such as the ability to link and pull transactions from your bank, saving processing time.  It also automatically matches invoices to payments and receipts, to speed up the bank reconciliation process.  You can send sales invoices directly from Xero which are tracked and tell you if they have been viewed, you can also scan purchase invoices directly into Xero so there is no need to hold onto paper copies

It has over 700 apps which can be linked to Xero to help your business run, by removing duplication of business processes and increasing efficiency which will save you time.  Examples include invoice scanning, expenses software, job and project management tools and advanced financial reporting and modelling systems.
