Tools. Where would we be without them? Our ages and cultures have been defined by our tools since the beginning of time. (I have a hard time imagining someone brushing dust from a smartphone or Google glasses, but perhaps the cave people thought the same thing about their wheel?)
When you are running a business, tools are what make your world go round on a daily basis. Perhaps the most important tool is the one that you use to pay your employees, your vendors, file your taxes, keep track of your ageing and deposits, and in short, keep an eye on your bottom line from day to day. If you have a vehicle or a major piece of equipment break down, you need to know QUICKLY how much capital you can get your hands on to remedy your disaster as quickly as possible.
Enter Xero. Xero offers every creature comfort that you should require in your cloud accounting list of demands.
Xero allows you to import your bank accounts and keep them running real time within the software. You can access your information and your funds at any time, from anywhere. Time is money in the business world, that’s something that has never changed. Please take a moment if you will, to stop and think about what your time is worth in dollars. Is it better for you to be out selling to your clients, or doing your banking and bookkeeping? Which one of these tasks is going to contribute more dollars to your bottom line? I’ll give you a hint, it isn’t the banking!!!
With tools like Xero, think of all of the time you will be saving! You don’t have to drive to the bank to move money around. You don’t have to drive back to the office to check in with the accounts payable staff to find out if a vendor has been paid. It’s all at your fingertips, on your phone, tablet, or laptop, no matter where you are or what you are doing. (We won’t tell if you took a mental health day to lie on the beach, your secret is safe with us!) We all need to get paid…invoicing and getting paid is so simple when working within Xero. You can send your invoices online with just an email address, and get paid just as simply. Your ageing will never have looked so slim and youthful!
Take back your time. Work in your business, not on it. You will be amazed at what cloud accounting can do to change the face of your business day/week/month!
