Adam says the driving force behind moving to Xero was the solutions ability to integrate with a wide range of applications
“At the time we evaluated online accounting solutions Xero didn’t support payroll so our options were limited. Once the Xero payroll feature was implemented the writing was on the wall. We run our business on cloud technology from phone systems through to file storage and beyond so it was essential we could use services like Zapier to connect our financials to other apps to future proof our processes and add further automation. On top of that the Xero eco system was also a big plus. These were the primary reasons for the switch however Xero still needed to deliver the goods in terms of matching Saasu's core functionality which it now does.”
Adam is exploring the evolving Xero eco-system.
“One integration we are trialling right now is pushing new invoices into a shared Google Calendar so the team can see front and center when invoices are due for specific clients. Planned integrations are with Woo Commerce and Zoho CRM”
Adam goes on to share what he likes about Xero.
“Smart bank feed rules, file attachments, exporting reports to google docs, intuitive interface, mobile app , tracking key accounts on the dashboard and a whole lot more that I'm discovering every day as we get better at integrating our financials into our core processes to make smarter decisions.”
Adam checks his accounts daily and collaborates with his accountants via the cloud accounting system Xero.
When asked if Xero accounting has made managing his business easier, Adam exuberantly responds
“Thinking back to the days of battling with MYOB and file imports, Xero is like an iPhone compared to an old Nokia. It did the job but once you've experienced the ease of use and integrated bank feeds Xero provides you'd never go back. So in a word YES!”
