The year 2015 is nearly in the books. The team at Xero wants to wish all of our small business customers and accounting and bookkeeping partners a very Happy Holiday and a productive start to 2016.
Xero entered 2015 laser-focused on delivering new features that add value for our customers. This year we took things to the next level. We’re innovating faster than any other player in the industry and releasing updates continually (we delivered 400 updates in 2014 and have nearly doubled that total in 2015).
This last year saw a number of useful new features that top anything other cloud accounting solutions have to offer. If you’re not already using these tools to turbo-charge your business, you should make it your resolution to give them a try in 2016:
Clean your clients’ books in seconds
Find and Recode transforms how bookkeepers and accountants clean up clients’ books. What previously took hours, now only takes seconds. Advisors can search for a set of transactions and update thousands of line items at once – everything from accounts and tax rates to tracking and contacts. Truly awesome.
Get paid faster
Invoice Reminders takes a lot of the pain out of the collections process. We hope you’ve tried it and it helped you avoid an awkward phone call or two! This feature lets you automatically send clients a fully customizable email reminder about their invoice either before or after it’s due. You can set up the service for repeated mailing
Make better business decisions
Our Business Performance Dashboard is the simplest way for businesses and their advisors to get a snapshot of their business. Use simple graphs of metrics and identify trends that would otherwise be difficult and time consuming to derive. When combined with our highly-customizable, best-in-class reporting, we’re setting our customers up for a successful 2016 and beyond.
Find what you need fast
Xero Search is a huge time-saver for new customers and power users alike. Customers can instantly search both contacts and transactions from anywhere in Xero. You can also get previews of your search results (without leaving the screen they’re working on!). Search also lets you quickly add a new contact, invoice, bill, quote, or purchase order using shortcuts from right inside the search bar.

Happy Holidays and here’s to a great 2016!
