There’s no time like the present to be on the cloud—the Xero cloud, that is. With the shift to hybrid work environments, migrating to a cloud-based solution has become essential to making businesses run smoothly. Virtual collaborations ensure easy, secure data transfer, as well as the critical ability to run your business from anywhere. So why do we love Xero cloud for our small business clients?
1. You can run your business from anywhere
Access your business finances at any time, from any internet-connected device—phone, tablet, or computer. As a small business owner, you need the ability to check in on your finances, reports, and data from any location. The days of needing to be in the office to view financials or approve invoices are long gone. In today’s hybrid work environment, you absolutely need to be able to run your business from the location that works for you and your team.
2. Understand your real-time cash position
Xero users know where the business stands financially at all times. Xero allows business owners to securely connect multiple bank accounts, which eliminates the need for manual uploads and inputs. And don’t worry, all data sent from bank feeds is encrypted, maintaining security and privacy. Transactions are automatically categorized and reported, which saves you a ton of bookkeeping time and enables real-time insights into your cash position.
3. Collaborate with your team
As Xero advisors, we love the ability to collaborate with our clients in real time. Our clients appreciate the multiple levels of access they can share with their staff, ensuring people have access to the information they need to do their jobs. Business owners maintain ultimate control over all financial data, but they can also securely share information as needed, in a highly customizable manner.
4. Improve cash flow by getting paid faster
Easily create and send branded invoices that enable online payments and automatic invoice reminders. Say goodbye to chasing down payments—Xero does it all for you.
5. Protect your business data
Xero backs up your data and protects it with multiple layers of security, including industry-standard data encryption and secure data centers. As an added layer of security, business owners can opt for two-step authentication for their Xero accounts. Security remains the top priority for virtual and cloud-based solutions. Reducing the risk of fraud and data theft is crucial, and Xero is one of our top picks for secure accounting solutions.
6. Help when you need it
Chances are you didn’t launch your business because you were stoked about bookkeeping. When you need help, your dedicated support team can view your data and provide the advice you need. Xero also offers comprehensive online resources, including guides, videos, and FAQs to help you get moving. Your cloud accountant is always standing by to assist you and answer your questions.
