Do you remember the era when the first smartphones were constructed, names like Apple and Android are the common names everyone can remember? Though people have forgotten other players who tried following the success of their competitors, and no one else does it better than Microsoft, remember the Windows Phone? Lost in the passing of time, Microsoft tried competing in the mobile market with their phone that had a questionable UI (User Interface), late to the smartphone game, and the lack of popular apps that were available on the phones hurt them and made them lost in time.
Now, let us look at accounting software. There are so many to choose from it's like we've entered the lottery of picking and figuring out which one suits you best. It could be mind-numbing trying to figure out which one is suitable for a business that is versatile, efficient, and reliable at any given moment. When looking towards the future, we're all going digital and the cloud is the future. There are a few accounting software out there that implement cloud and in this day of age, people don't want something that hasn't been tested fully or properly implemented just because they were "chasing where the money goes".
Xero is probably not a household name in America but they are the first cloud accounting software and are dominate in Asia and Europe. They were founded around 2006, way before the concept of the iPhone was even announced to the public! Now around that time, operating on the cloud was a foreign concept to everyone, and considering that time period, the majority of the people were not fully integrated to the internet as we are now today. So they've been developing and perfecting this for the past 10+ years, which means they have been testing and mastering their program so it's efficient, accurate, and accessible to everyone.
Xero's UI design is seamless, easy on the eyes, and user friendly compared to their competitors in contrast. The fact that it is easy to navigate means that everyone who hasn't used it before can easily pick it up and use it with no problem compared to their competitors whom you would have to call up their hotline services, wait on hold for an hour or so, and then spend another hour trying to figure out how to overcome your technical difficulty.
Now everyone is always on the go traveling to meet with clients, their next gig, seminar, or casually going out for a stroll. We're connected to our phones as we travel, as we always want updates on things we prioritize in our daily lives. People will often stick with social media to get all of their updates from news, friends, shows, sports, etc. When it comes to accounting there are a few that do that moderately well, while some only tell you to select topics like Cash Flow only, Xero has an option where you can create your own personalized reports that you can access anytime without the limitations of the app itself. Their phone app is a robust and seamless experience where you can actually access your P&L at a glance, create invoices & take pictures of receipts to create actions, and so much more! With so much versatility, anyone who is a business owner could use this to help their business get accurate, timely data to make business decisions that matter.
At OneSelfClub, we are strong believers of the cloud and services that help business owners like you to do their everyday tasks. Now that we're partnered up with Xero, we'll make sure you receive a robust system that is accurate and reliable so you're in control of their finances and know your numbers instantly. We believe in the best so we can provide you with the best.
