Go Mobile With the Xero Mobile App
You certainly won’t be confined by the walls of your office with Xero as they offer a mobile app you can take with you anywhere. Made available for both Android and iOS platforms, the app allows you to do your business as long as you can get a internet connection. Perform functions and transactions on the Xero app as you would on the desktop version so whether you just woke up in the morning or just got home from work at night and forgot to do a report, Xero makes it possible to do so.
View all your transactions, balances, contacts and make reconciliations from your bank accounts, send invoices at absolutely any time of the day, make follow-ups on outstanding accounts while enjoying the morning paper, take pictures of receipts with your devices for expense claims, call customers and suppliers from the app or find them on a map and get everything needed to manage and track SMB income and expenses.
The app is free to download for both platforms but requires a Xero account to access. It has received relatively high marks from users of the app based on respective app store ratings as well.
Xero Subscription Plans
Here is a quick comparison of the three different subscription plans of Xero to give you an idea what to expect for each before you make your purchase. Each plan comes with a 30 day free trial so you can check them out and see the features for yourself. Aside from that, they have all have the basic features which are to create and send invoices, create purchase orders and bills, reconcile bank transactions, and third-party app integration. They also allow unlimited users, free support and file storage across all three plans.
The Starter plan which costs $20 a month is their most basic plan and has the least features since it is only allowed to create and send 5 invoices, 5 bills, reconcile 20 bank transactions and has no multi-currency accounting. The Standard plan which comes next costs $30 a month comes with unlimited features but still has no multi-currency accounting. The Premium that costs $40 is their complete plan that comes with all the features including multi-currency account which is the biggest difference between it and the Standard plan.
Xero does a decent job with the customer support they provide customers with an FAQ and forum section where you can find most of the common and not so common concerns. Should you need more support, you can email their representatives 24/7 but replies usually take about a day. They also have telephone support but only during weekdays from 8am to 5pm PT.
