Cloud8 at Xero Roadshow 2020 in Melbourne

17 Feb

Cloud8 team attended the biggest ever XERO Roadshow in Melbourne last week. At the roadshow, we were updated about Xero’s upcoming announcements and cloud accounting product feature. We also had the opportunities to meet a number of leading App developers in the XERO Eco-system.

At Cloud8, we are technology savvy! Not only we use the latest cloud-based Apps and accounting software in Xero eco-system to run our practice, we also partner with Apps developers to provide productive technology advisory services to our small business clients.

Two big trends in XERO that you should learn!

1. Harnessing Hubdoc and XERO as one

Hubdoc uses A.I and machine learning to extracts key information from your receipts, invoices, and bills. No more data entry, no more filing.

Hubdoc offers different options for your recepts/invoices and business records to be imported into the hub. So whether it best suits you to take a photo of receipts using the app on your phone, to forward email paperwork to your unique Hubdoc email address, to drag-and-drop attachments, or to scan and upload existing paper files.

With all your financial records accounted for, backed-up, organised, and available at anytime, on any device, you are essentially audit-proofing your business by way of automation.

TIP! From 18 March, Hubdoc subscription will be included in your XERO business edition monthly subscription. We believe Hubdoc and XERO combo is the future of bookkeeping, it will boost business administration efficiency. We encourage all  our clients to transition into using Huddoc before this date.


2. New XERO Expense and XERO Project functions

XERO Expense and XERO Project are two new functions designed to help small businesses overcome compliance challenges, cash flow burdens and more.

Xero Expense lets employees capture receipts and submit claims for work expenses on iOS and Android mobile devices. It reduces the hidden costs of managing  employees’ expense claims.

Xero Project is the simple, mobile-friendly and real-time project management tool right in Xero. Specifically, it:

  • Accurately invoice every time with easy-to-use time tracking and job costing tools.
  • Create fixed price, time and materials, or progress payment invoices.
  • Gain the insights to succeed, by seeing trends and patterns based on up-to-the minute information.
  • Work from anywhere with Xero Projects for mobile on iOS and Android.

TIPS! XERO Project is perfect for small businesses in professional services and trade that require a simple job and cost tracking solution.
