Xero marketed hard to accountants & I was conned into changing - my accountant won the prize for the most clients converted!!!

Customer Support
N/A

I have found this to be a frustrating system, I am accustomed to MYOB support, when I need to learn something new, the email approach of responding in 24hours makes it really impossible to gain any relationship. When I complained, Xero response was "Sorry you want to leave us - heres how to change"!

Pros

Xero is from New Zealand & has expanded extremely well via a strong programme of marketing to accountants. As a SME not much to like!

Cons

Lack of customer support - Xero doesn't consider me a customer only my accountant. Ive paid in full, & my account was cancelled with no notice, my wages were late. All this because Xero shut me down on Friday night - the message read "Your account has been suspended - contact BDO"

Functionality

Value for Money

Xero has really helped our business and it is great to use. The support team are very quick to respond to any issues, and there is hardly ever an issue with the software, it is very reliable.

Pros

It is simple enough for non-bookkeepers to use and get great information, and it has the ability to produce all of ATO reporting needs, making GST and Tax returns really easy to complete. The sales and payments also integrate without purchasing software allowing us to complete accurate job costing without a lot of effort. We know when we are making money and when we are losing money on jobs.

Cons

Entering time sheets manually every week, because it doesn't link to our timesheet software, but this will change in the next year hopefully. Sometimes there are delays on bank feeds and we have to check the bank account instead of using xero.

Unreliable in the End with Terrible Support

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros

The features are more than sufficient for our particular needs (and I imagine for many companies).

In addition, the UI is pretty easy to understand. There's a slight learning curve, but not too much.

Cons

Biggest issue is that bank feeds tend not to import 100% of transactions. Most transactions get imported, but in several of our accounts, 50-100 transactions will be randomly 'missed' and not imported.

Xero customer support's only response is to suggest that we manually go through all transactions to see which ones have been missed and then import those particular transactions manually. Since we get thousands of transactions each month, that suggestion would require a LOT of time.

Plus, this also means that you can never trust whether Xero is importing all transactions or not.

Unfortunately, Xero's customer support is completely dismissive of the issue when we inquire and ask for assistance.

Pros

It's a pretty descent online accounts package, nice GUI.

Cons

No support, takes weeks to get an emailed reply to any query, Payroll needs to have telephone support and they have no plans to implement it. Not good enough, not a practical solution, absolute waste of time and money, wish I had never gone this way.

Value for Money

For small businesses who have basic needs, Xero is great. Easy setup and has does most of the things you need.

Pros

Xero is easy to use - even employees can use it to load sales invoices and employee expenses. It is great that they have an IOS and Android App, allowing you access on the go. Tracking and reporting on invoices is easy and with integrations with 3rd party services you can easily receive and send information.

Cons

It does not update directly from our banking platform - to let us know an invoice is paid. Also if someone requests finance to approve an invoice, finance does not get an notification. You have to let finance know and they have to go and find the invoice and approve.

Exceptionally expensive subscription model with NO phone support (there arent even any numbers listed on their addresses) and email supports takes 24-48 hours for a response, and typically takes over 5 emails back and forth (ie a week) to get resolved (thats if youre lucky).

Xero is really easy to use...... when its actually working! The bank feed has a weekly glitch, and at the moment, the whole of xero is down completely. I have no way of telling what invoices are still owed to me and Im very worried about my data, obviously because its cloud based. I also think that it could do with more features, like estimated income, estimating expenditure etc. I've had it for a year and Im now looking for something else, I think I gave them a fair trial, just too many glitches.

Pros

the bank feed when its working

Cons

its mostly not working and the holidays in the payroll feature are a nightmare

Time saving in bank reconciliation

Pros

Auto import of bank transactions for simple, easy reconciliation. Very easy to set up and very flexible in the use of a standard chart of accounts or use your own.

Cons

Does not handle projects and/or jobs very well although with a bit of thought can work around.
Don't like how contacts database can very easily get out of control by the automatic addition of new nonsense contacts created from bank transaction imports.
Waiting for a Project/Job Costing module to be added.
Payroll not as slick as rest of the accounting app.

Easy to manage personal admin in my role such as submitting timesheets, annual leave balances and submitting expenses.

Pros

I like how simple it is to get up and running with this tool from a users point of view. I use this tool to submit and approve team expenses. It's as simple as entering some information and uploading files. It's also really easy to view how much leave you have as an employee and request time off or submit sick leave.

As a user I didn't need any training and it helps me manage the personal admin side of my role.

Cons

Had some issues with employees submitting time sheets and there seems to be a bug that you can approve your own annual and sick leave. Could do with some improvements to help avoid future issues with team members submitting and approving their own time.

Xero does not have an OCR receipt app - we use Receipt Bank with Xero and that works really well.

A complete look at my business from objective point of view. It was excellent for looking at cash flow and seeing where your money comes from and what it goes on. This, on top of all the other features generally used.

Pros

This software is the real deal that has whole package. Truely feel in control of your business with easy to use features from invoicing, reconciling, payroll, leave management, time sheets etc. I love the edition and enabling of third party software. I personally coupled Xero with a specialized job & inventory management system. However Xero does that too, and in a more than capable fasion for most business'. Together with Xero, it really is, Beautiful Business.

Cons

The only negative i had with the system was when coupled with the specific third party software that i had intergrated with Xero, it would double up on client invoices and created a little extra work. I did later findout from the Xero support centre that this was an issue i could resolve in features of Xero

Saving time and money

Pros

The accounting processes are so simple and easy to follow, it has saved me a huge amount of time and you don't have to be an accountant to understand it. Linking to the bank account allows me to keep everything up to date daily and the accountant having access keeps all our tax obligations running smoothly. Having the security of cloud backup so we don't have to do local back ups.

Cons

Helped to speed up the input and allocation of transactions from bank statements

Pros

Xero automates the collection and allocation of your transactions from your bank statements. The ability to store source documents with the transaction is also great.

Cons

The cost is quite high once you come off the sign on special. Other than this I haven't had many issues with it thus far.
