Accounting’s city that never sleeps
New York has many nicknames (The Big Apple, The City So Nice They Named It Twice, Gotham, Empire City to name a few), and has many more stories, secrets and subplots besides. It is the most highly populated city in America and boasts some of the most recognised regions, landmarks and icons in the world. Frank Sinatra (along with many others) even sang a song about it once.
Perhaps most famously, it is known as ‘The City Never Sleeps.’ If you have ever been to New York, then you will know exactly what I mean. OK, there are other large cities around the world where there are 24-hour openings, non-stop nightlife, and no shortage of things to do after hours – but none quite like New York. It seems that there is no visible change between, dusk and dawn, rush-hour and lunch, or clocking-off and going out. The constant buzz of busyness is omnipresent; the beeping, yelling and rhythmic chatter never wanes, and the lights just keep on shining brightly.
From Xero to superhero!
I mentioned earlier that another name for New York is Gotham, the home of Batman and his myriad of colourful foes. This post has a subtle link to that hardworking superhero too and in particular his ever-ready, ultra-resourceful utility belt. You see, the hero of this story never sleeps either and always has a useful add-on ready to get you out of a tight spot.
I am of course talking about Xero, the amazing accounting software that looks over Meades & Co’s clients night and day, ready to spring into action as the need arrives. Never tiring, always vigilant, and always ready to take on a new challenge, Xero controls the accounting needs of our clients, long after they and even we have gone to sleep.
Not only does Xero update and upload your banking in real-time 24/7; it is constantly working on important cases like sending out invoices and tracking down payments; ensuring you are ready to file returns in an instant, keeping you safe from online crime and reporting back on your finances at the touch of a button. It is a truly heroic peace (of mind) keeper for any small business owner.
The Xero utility belt
Did you ever marvel at just how size-defying Batman’s utility belt appeared to be? It seemed that whatever the need there was a gadget, device or explosive gas within easy reach, ready to save the day or repel the enemy with seconds to spare. Xero’s utility belt is just as impressive, believe me. To date (and I’m sure this number will soon be out of date again), there are over 500 approved add-ons available to supercharge your Super Xero package.
With everything from, inventory, CRM, time-tracking, eCommerce, payroll, document production, expenses and a whole lot more Xero is certain to have everything covered.
Do it your way!
As Frank sang, “I wanna wake up, In a city that doesn’t sleep… I want to be a part of it, New York, New York.” If you haven’t used Xero to gain complete control of your finances yet, the good news is that you can be a part of the revolution.
Get in touch, or pick up the flashing, red Meades-phone and we’ll make the introduction.
