One of the biggest questions to answer is which bookkeeping software should I use for my business?
Choosing the right bookkeeping software can save you time, improve your customer’s experience, improve your cash flow and provide you with relevant and accurate information to make well-informed business decisions. Choosing the wrong bookkeeping software can result in hours of wasted time, inaccurate data and frustration.
What software companies will tell you
“We’re the best”… “No, we’re the best.”
“Just take a picture.”
“It’s just one click.”
What the software companies don’t tell you
There isn’t one software package that suits all businesses and regardless of what software you choose, garbage in = garbage out!
Different software packages suit different businesses and different business sizes, each software company will have several different plans and despite bookkeeping technology constantly improving, unfortunately at this moment in time for businesses any bigger than one man/woman teams bookkeeping isn’t just one click.

The beauty of using Xero is that it has an open API. Meaning that if there is an area of a finance function where someone thinks Xero doesn’t quite cover they can develop an app that integrates with Xero plugging that gap. This means that possibilities are endless! CRM, Inventory, Point of Sales, Xero have it covered and it appears that everyone wants to work alongside Xero.

The trick is choosing the right apps for the right jobs!
We have worked alongside Xero for many years now and know which apps work well in which scenario. We have built out our own core app stack as you can see here how each app works seamlessly alongside the other.
We are always learning though and our core app stack will develop as the technology evolves.
