In our last blog, we focused on the benefits of using cloud based software for mobile working. This blog introduces you to the popular features that will change your life.

Helen White, Director of Marketing Stockport has been using Xero for two years and says;

“We don’t have our own financial team so it is important that our accountancy package is readily accessible, secure, intuitive and really easy to use. The fast bank reconciliation and our digital dashboard have had the biggest impact on our business. They are quick and easy to use and have freed up our time to work on taking our business forward.”

The most popular features are:

  • Fast bank reconciliation – Xero connects to your bank account effortlessly and securely so you can keep your accounts up to date.
  • Easy invoicing – create personalised online invoices and receive updates when they’re opened. Your customers can quickly and easily pay using a link encouraging prompt payment and improving your cash flow.
  • File storage - attach files to almost anything from invoices to bills and transactions to have everything you, your customers and Hallidays need right at their fingertips.
  • Financial dashboard – instantly see the management information that is key to your business via the customised menu, enabling you to routinely monitor and quickly take the action needed to grow your business.
  • Tracking – review and compare different areas of your organisation, and improve your reporting to identify the areas of the business working well and where action is needed.
  • Multi-currency - send invoices, reconcile accounts and get paid in over 160 different currencies. Foreign exchange rates are updated hourly, so you instantly know exactly how gains and losses are affecting your cash flow and can quickly respond.
  • Create customisable purchase orders – transform them into a bill to save you time.
  • Schedule payments and batch pay suppliers – manage your cash flow. A graph of your bills helps you decide which ones need to be paid and when.
  • Sync and streamline your data – Xero integrates with over 450 business apps to ensure you are working efficiently with all of the information you need to run your business.

Xero have produced a two-minute video demonstrating the features and a wide range of client testimonials.
