What is XERO?
Xero is our cloud-based accounting software. It is the most user-friendly and cost-effective software on the market. Its value for money is particularly apparent, when you consider a) how much money it saves you on tax, and b) the amount of time it frees up, allowing you to focus on getting more sales.
Xero offers top-notch dynamic accounting and has extensive features, add-ons and integration possibilities. Out of the 800 integrative apps, one which has been of particular use is the Amazon seller integration feature. This feature replaces the manual processes associated with e-commerce.
So instead of having to upload, code and sort data into your spreadsheet, the Xero add-on will automate that whole process. It is more than just a simple data transfer however, it effectively sorts the data, meaning you have to do very little work on it.
Read on to find out how we have helped a customer grow his business, using Xero accounting software.
Our client is an online retailer, involved in sports equipment and accessories. They had originally been using an e-commerce website for this business, but that drew very limited success, given that he was a fledgeling business and had not found the means for bringing footfall to their site.
They moved onto Amazon where he found their sales rapidly increased, beyond what they could handle. Any kind of unprecedented increase in sales can put a business owner into difficulties. Keeping track of income, fulfilling orders can very quickly push a business owner beyond the capacity at which they can operate.
This client came to us for bookkeeping support. We soon established that they were overly reliant on these manual spreadsheet processes, and their workflows were suffering as a result of the inefficiency.
We have experience helping manual businesses become automated, using cloud accounting software, in particular, linking Amazon with Xero. We implemented this for the client, and within six weeks, they were up and running, and able to handle five times the volume of business than before.
