What are the features and benefits of Xero?
Xero is easy to use online accounting software which enables the business team to access data and collaborate simultaneously in real time. Xero has the ability to integrate and communicate with other business management solutions, streamlining workflow, enhancing productivity, automates mundane repetitive tasks and reducing boring data entry, but more importantly means the business is working with the same data across all systems. With an Xero in place you can focus your energies on earning money, rather than drowning under a tower of paperwork.
Xero utilises activated bank feeds, with businesses bank, credit card and payment gateway accounts such as PayPal which pushes real business transactions into your account system, reducing the need for data entry.
Reconciled Xero accounts enable the business managers to access useful dashboards in real time wherever they are in the world. It also allows you the business owner to share your financial information your accountant, bookkeeper, financial advisor, bank and any other parties that may require access – if you permit them.
Other features of Xero accounting software are you never need to waste time upgrading the software; it’s done automatically for you. Your data is also back up securely online, but it’s worth making your own back-ups as well. The online accounting solution Xero offers the same sort of security as Internet banking.
