At ZümiFi, we have been doing this while and have a few favorite tools to make business and our client’s businesses more efficient. This is a sampling of the tools we like to use to deliver powerful X-ray Vision for our clients.
Sometimes there are just better solutions
Xero purports to be an accounting system built in the cloud for the cloud. Sounds awesome, right? What an advantage over QuickBooks, which was built in the desktop environment and is now recreating itself as a cloud-based option. But here’s the deal – it’s not that great an accounting system: tough truth, but our experience.
We have some clients who are in Xero… for some of them, it’s fine, just somewhat annoying in how they need to navigate. In other cases, though, there are accounting functions that we cannot do (and we know we can do them in QBO!).
Xero’s payroll functionality is emerging and is currently only available in 7 states for electronic filing. So with all these limitations, why not just use QBO? That’s the question we ask, and more often than not, we recommend QuickBooks Online instead of Xero because it’s better!
Why we love QuickBooks Online
QuickBooks Online lets us create a custom combination of online, cloud-based tools, including Bill.com, Box.com, and other tools, in unique combinations to truly leverage technology. This enables us to fully automate your system, eliminate data entry, and simplify and facilitate your bookkeeping. And we ensure accuracy and completeness so that every dollar counts.
What are your favorite tools? We’d love to hear from you.
