Making the most of your business tools

Making the most of your business tools

What is a Business Tool?   It is a software that helps you run your business more efficiently.

Software tools that we recommend are Xero, MYOB, QBO

Add on solutions?  Sounds strange but as accounting software can not do everything for everyone, they allow for other software to talk to the accounting software to improve your processes.

Some of the solutions that our clients use are:

Hubdocs and ReceiptBank  - to save copies of their invoices and receipts instead of trying to store paper copies

Vend, Dear TradeGecko and Shopify – these are inventory programs that allow clients to keep an eye on stock levels and see what needs to be replenished.  These integrate with Xero and QBO to allow for your end of month reports to be completed.


ServiceM8 – this is an all in one tool for Tradies to be able to schedule the work, invoice clients at the time and take payments so the money is in bank when a job is finished.  This integrates with Xero, MYOB and QBO to allow for the invoices to be sent through and end of month reporting is a breeze. No double entry of invoice or forgetting to bill a client.


Tsheets and Deputy – These are timekeeping apps that allow you to easily track your staff hours and location so that payday is less manual paperwork.


Stripe, Square and Tyro – examples of payment apps that allow your customers to pay immediately and not having to processes via an eft.
