Cloud 9 for Cloud Bookkeeping

A Gold Coast company is making it easier for tradies to do what they do best.

Invoicing clients can be a tedious time consuming task for tradesmen so less time spent on this taks the better.
Xero has emerged as a favourite software package for tradesmen.

Cloud9 have a team of Xero Certified Consultants who can help.
Cloud9 also offer Xero training for those who want to get their books in order quickly.

Some background on Xero

Xero went public on the New Zealand Exchange (NZX) on June 5, 2007.
By choosing the NZX instead of investment from Silicon Valley they avoid pressure to sell to a larger competing company.

The company focussed on New Zealand initially and then expanded to other markets like Australia.

Reasons Xero Accounting Software may suit you

  • all plans support unlimited number of users
  • no long term contracts
  • you can downgrade without any cost penalty (change to cheaper plan)
  • no setup fees or hidden costs
  • cross industry acceptance and integration (refer below)

Xero Integration

Company's like Reece offer Xero Integration with their maX online business management system.
There is a complete developer integration guide for Xero.

Point of Sales POS can also be integrated into Xero
From Xero API-:

"We've gone for an approach that focuses on getting your sales information into Xero by summarizing sales for each payment type so, if anyone needs to revisit their daily sales figures later they are clearly labelled in Xero for easy cross checking with your POS system."
