12 Reasons to Switch to Xero

You might be wondering ‘Why change to Xero? It’s not broke, don’t fix’

‘Isn’t it hard to switch over?’

‘Why should I?’

Well let me set your mind to rest with 12 Reasons to Switch to Xero.

Bank Feeds

  • Xero offers an automatic feed of bank transaction lines. Data is direct from banks & financial institutions. It is untouched by human hands and keystroke errors. Time spent on manually inputting transactions is vastly reduced.
  • Creation of bank rules. Got a direct debit set-up to give the kids some spending money while at Uni? By creating a bank rule, it can be set-up to always code to the right account and contact. Reconciling the transaction is simple afterwards, just one click.
  • Easy searching of past transactions. You can search by description on statement, the amount, within a set dollar or date range, a specific date or a combination of these factors.

Smart easy invoices

  • Creation of repeating invoices is quick and simple.
  • Send Online Invoices to customers. Get paid faster, receive a notification when an invoice is opened (good for those “I didn’t get the invoice” moments), link to online payment method.
  • Automatic Invoice Reminders that you can set with specific parameters. Default reminders are sent at 7, 14 and 21 days after each invoice due date (overdue).
  • “Getting Started” helpful videos in every section that give you tips on how to use Xero.

Believe it or not Xero can’t do everything. For example, while it does have inventory, it isn’t specialised, and it is limited. Don’t get me wrong it gets the job done for most small businesses perfectly. But if you have abundant tracked product lines, seeking a specialised inventory program that integrates with Xero is a smart move. If you wish to run an online shop as well Unleashed would be the way to go.


The same goes with Job Management Software, where you have multiple jobs running, schedules to run by, quotes to estimate and send out. An integration with software like Tradify would assist there.

Running a Farm and want to see your estimated cash flow for the next 6 months, test financial variables, change expected crop harvests and see what impact that has on your budget. Figured would be the add-on for you.
