If your accountant uses Xero or if you're using Xero to service small business clients, this might be of interest.
One of the advantages of cloud accounting software is that it means accountants and bookkeepers have live access to your books so they can give you advice based on your current position.
Xero's new Practice Manager takes this a step further by integrating practice management functions with live connections to clients' accounts. It also converts completed jobs into draft invoices in the practice's Xero accounts.
Xero claimed this can result in faster turnaround, decreased debtors, improved staff productivity and reduced administration effort.
Practice Manager is available to all of Xero's accounting or bookkeeping partners, but at no extra charge to silver and higher members of the company's partner program.
