Automate Tasks

Automation of tasks like invoicing and reporting ensures your regular business needs are being met. This makes your year end easy because you know your information is up to date and correct.

Add the elements you need: Xero connects to over 800 3rd-party apps like Shopify, PayPal and Stripe. Tying your accounting software into your sales or POS system reduces the risk of information being lost and puts the power of the big picture at your fingertips.
