10 great reasons to choose Xero

XeroAn online accounting software solution that brands itself simply as “Beautiful accounting software”, Xero is currently taking the market by storm.

Offering pretty much the full gambit of solutions required by any small or medium sized business, it’s easy to see what makes Xero so attractive.

When it comes to accounting software, Xero software has recently hit the headlines more than most, particularly when it comes to winning awards.   With a whole trail of global awards behind them, only recently, CPA Practice Advisor, which is one of the biggest American accounting publications honoured Xero with a 5 star review.  Second only to Quickbooks Online, Xero is particularly proud of this scoop because relative to their rival, they’re the new kids on the US block.  So what is it that makes Xero such a hard act to beat?

First and foremost, their groundbreaking attitude seems to be stirring up healthy competition in the industry, which can only be good news for SMEs the world over.  Far from being arrogant about their position however, Xero are quick to acknowledge that they don’t have everything that all of their competitors have, but they have a really intuitive, simple cloud-based accounting system that is perfect for small and medium sized businesses in every sector.  Here are 10 great reasons to choose Xero:
