About Xero

Beautiful accounting software

Xero is an integrated and comprehensive system with a focus on processing customer payments in the fastest, easiest way possible. Rather than handle payments through flimsy paper bills, the system allows you to process payments through an up-to-date online invoice, and efficiently keep track of your business records. This is an ideal way to skip chasing cash, and concentrate on flow! 

Why use Xero?

Xero is all about minimising uncertainty, and maximising efficiency. Chasing overdue invoices is time-consuming, stressful, and costly for your business. With Xero's Online Invoicing, you know exactly where your customers - and your funds - are at.

The integrated system allows you to connect directly to your customers by producing and sharing a live invoice online. Not only do you give customers ready access to an accurate bill, but also the capacity to securely "Pay Now" into the invoice itself. The Pay Now button means they can start and end the process in just one click.  So, customers pay you faster, and you get paid instantly!

With Xero, managing your finances becomes a simple, transparent process. Online Invoicing means you'll be able to oversee invoice status and have accurate record of bill payments.

By making the payment process clear and hassle-free, the system makes your business records accurate to real-time - that is, after all, the way online shopping should work!
