Your SME and XERO – The essential business tool for your finances

As an SME, there may seem hundreds of varying accounting platforms to choose from each with differing features, every one boasting of better functionality.  To say that this outlook can be bewildering would be a woeful understatement. Here we introduce you to the XERO accounting platform – cutting through the jargon and hard sell, to simply explain what XERO offers, who it’s right for and why you should always choose a certified XERO software advisor if you decide that this platform is right for you.

XERO: A platform for smarter small business accounting

XERO is a cloud-powered accounting platform chosen by 700,000 users worldwide, spanning more than 180 countries. Businesses that use the XERO platform are home to staff bases that are coninually under pressure, where employees may adopt many roles outside of their own official title. In these businesses, real-time financial insight can be the difference between continual growth and a sales funnel that stalls. What’s more, as many of these companies lack their own dedicated accounts department, a platform such as XERO streamlines communications with the accountants outside of the business.
