The future of bookkeeping: why move to Xero bookkeeping?

August 9, 2023

If we were to ask you for the first thing that comes to mind when you think of bookkeeping, what would you say?

We’re not gamblers, but if we were, we’d bet on words like “hard” and “daunting” would be thrown around. And fair enough, those are pretty common stereotypes that come with bookkeeping.

But with modern, efficient, state-of-the-art bookkeeping, these challenges are simply a thing of the past.

That is why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the future of bookkeeping lies with online bookkeeping. In fact, thanks to services like Xero, we’ve already reached that point!

You may have heard of Xero and how it’s revolutionised the world of bookkeeping – we certainly talk about it a lot!

If you haven’t however, let Maximum Business Solutions give you a brief rundown of what it’s all about and why there’s no better time than now to move to Xero bookkeeping.

No matter if you’re a shop owner, an agency, in the landscaping field, an electrician, a plumber, in short, any type of small business, Maximum Business Solutions has you covered with our comprehensive Xero bookkeeping in Melbourne.

Introducing Xero bookkeeping

From its humble origins across the Bass Strait, Xero has quickly grown to become one of the leading cloud accounting and bookkeeping solutions for small and medium businesses around the world.

How fast? Back in 2011, it only had about 50,000 subscribers. But now, it is estimated that Xero has reached the milestone of one million global subscribers!

With its growth, there really is no where else for Xero to go but up… especially now, with more and more business owners opting for more effective and efficient online bookkeeping services.

From Xero to hero: how online bookkeeping makes business easy

Bookkeeping made easy – that’s the core promise of Xero’s cloud bookkeeping software.

As it continues to grow and innovate, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Xero in many businesses going forward. In fact, it’s already one of the leading platforms in the industry!

And if you’re a small or medium business owner, it’s time you started thinking forward and making the move to Xero.

There are plenty of valid reasons why you should take the leap and get into the Xero program. Here are just a couple of them:

Reason #1: Cloud bookkeeping gives you real-time business numbers

If there’s one huge advantage cloud bookkeeping offers over traditional manual bookkeeping as we know it, it’s that all the data input and updates are done in real time.

Thanks to its open API, Xero can easily integrate with your:

  • Bank accounts and cards
  • Inventory & stock system
  • CRM database
  • Production system
  • Invoicing software

This way, every single payment, expense and order is accounted for as it happens,

Thanks to Xero, business owners no longer need to wait for days on end to get the latest numbers. Additionally, when you key in data, it is securely stored in Xero’s cloud – if accurate, up-to-date numbers are important to you, Xero is a must-have.
This makes it so simpler for you to determine exactly where your business is at any given moment in time.

Reason #2: Take your bookkeeping on-the-go with Xero

With Xero, you don’t need to be confined to the four walls of your office in order to check your financial data.

As a cloud bookkeeping service, you don’t need to install anything on your computer or laptop.

In fact, users can access Xero not only through your desktop but through any device with an internet connection – including your mobile or tablet.

This makes it ideal for those who are always on the go and those who need to access data pronto.

Its mobile features give business owners in particular a bookkeeping solution that is light years ahead in terms of efficiency. Not to mention, it also makes collaborating on your bookkeeping needs with others easier as well!

Instead of having to organise meetings and sessions, all of your staff can work with the numbers whatever the time and wherever they are thanks to Xero.

Reason #3: Simplified bookkeeping

With small business owners as its main demographic, Xero puts a big focus on simplify the bookkeeping process and administration.  And if you ask us, it’s done that spectacularly!

The people behind Xero know that many small business owners may not have an in-depth knowledge of accounting and bookkeeping. That’s why they made Xero to be as easy and uncomplicated as possible.

On top of the seamless integration with third-party software, Xero itself is designed with user-friendliness in mind.
With only a little bit of Xero training, small business owners will be able to understand the ins-and-outs of bookkeeping, allowing them to quickly understand what’s going.
