What is Xero?
Xero is a beautiful third party accounting software hosted in the cloud that we use at Covington+ Associates CPAs Inc. which provides anytime, anywhere access to important business financial information. As flexible as it is intuitive, Xero accounting seamlessly connects to many payroll, inventory tracking and time management applications, providing an easy-to-use interface that drives greater insight into your daily business.
Why use Xero for Non-Profit Organizations?
Our firm loves using Xero, and so do our nonprofit organization clients! Unlike other accounting software, Xero was built with nonprofits in mind, seeking input along the way from organizations of all sizes which resulted in software that provides time saving solutions and reduces that labor needed for an organizations bookkeeping.
Collaborate from anywhere at anytime:
Xero allows for nonprofits to add any amount of users in an organization to their account (with different permissions of course), which means that even if you have to miss a meeting, the organization will still have access to view their account on Xero.
Since you can log into Xero from any computer or mobile device at any time, you will no longer be tied to a specific computer during meetings to work on the months bookkeeping and will be able to participate on your organizations mission.
Reduce the costs of your organization from expensive yearly software updates:
Traditional accounting software was expensive and required users to be tied to a specific computer. In addition to that, every year a new version would be released which would require exporting all of your financial history and importing it into the new system. Xero is cloud based which means that you and anyone with permission to access your account will be able to use it from any device, without having to purchase additional licensing. Also Xero will automatically receive updates free of charge to your organization, without the need to transfer old files with each update.
Upgrade your software at anytime based on your organizations needs:
Xero has partnered with over 400 different software tools to allow you to upgrade your Xero account based on the needs of your organization. These tools seamlessly integrate with your current Xero account and will provide you with an even more powerful user experience.
