The benefits of XERO for your business
By now you’ve most likely heard a thing or two about cloud computing in business. Many organisations have already made the switch, and for good reason. If you want your business to become more efficient, productive, and financially healthy than ever, XERO cloud accounting software will prove to be a wise investment.
Good accounting software shouldn’t be a chore to use, and small to medium business software that isn’t accessible via the cloud can take up far too much of your business’s valuable time. XERO helps put the fun back in managing your business while saving you time and money. And although its premise might seem daunting if you’re not technologically inclined, the cloud is quite simply a platform to store your data and software on, making it accessible 24/7 from any device – including your smartphone or tablet.
“XERO makes crunching numbers a thing of the past,” says Chris Walsh, Director at Mcfillin & Partners. “Bank transactions can be fed straight into your financial statements, which clients can access at anytime from anywhere.”
With XERO, you’ll always have a crystal clear overview of your current financial position, updated with the most accurate information in real-time. Plus automatic updates are free and downloaded instantly, meaning there’s no more downtime for your business.
XERO know your time is valuable, endeavoring to create a good workflow. “It allows for better planning as the accounts can be produced on a more timely basis,” says Rod Ooge, Director at McFillin & Partners, “Tax planning, budget creation, and interim account preparation is all made easy.”
XERO cloud security is truly world-class. In the event of disaster – whether that mean a fire or a burglary – you can ensure your invaluable data is always accessible, which in turn means workplace productivity is never stalled. All your important information is securely stored offsite – all you need is an Internet connection to get back up and running. It’s far more reliable than the out-dated method of sending your files via email, or giving a staff member a USB stick with your data on it.
XERO can be scaled to suit the needs of any operation, whatever they may be, whether you’re a startup or a multi-million dollar enterprise. You can expand your business whenever you need to, and add unlimited users to your account for free. Invite your financial advisor to remotely view your data and get his real-time advice.
XERO makes paying your employees a breeze, giving you the ability to easily calculate the payroll and manage leave and super payments. And with 1 in 12 Australians now working from home, the cloud offers staff the flexibility to get their job done no matter where they are.
Upgrades, system maintenance, server failure and administration costs no longer pose a financial burden to your business. Instead, XERO’s service provider manages everything for you. Costs associated with on-site servers and the need for specially trained IT staff are no more. The cloud is constantly monitoring, maintaining and updating your programs, ensuring any downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.
