How to Improve Your Accounting Software - Xero Conversions (MYOB & Quickbooks)

Companies often encounter problems when switching to newer equipment and software, and this is a truly unfortunate thing as computer technology tends to make drastic leaps every couple of years. The problem is understandable â people like to work with what they know and with what they have become proficient in. Suddenly forcing your employees to switch to a new piece of software means that savvy veterans are now practically demoted to rookie status, everyone needs additional training and, perhaps worst of all, all the data needs to be repackaged to fit the new system.
You shouldnât be reluctant to make changes
Accountants have gotten pretty used to programs like MYOB and Quickbooks, and although an argument can be made for the functionality of both versions of bookkeeping software, Xero provides a more streamlined and relatively easy way of managing accounts. Now, there are people who are willing to move on to newer software that provides additional functionality or a better user interface that you can get proficient with in less time, but they still donât want to change something that clearly works just fine. Not knowing the necessary steps and the costs involved makes switching to Xero a less tempting option. However, improving and growing are merely types of change and with a little research you can overcome this initial reluctance.
What makes Xero so good?
Well, this is the age of online business, where physical entities separated by miles and miles can do business together, share information and exchange money. Most similar software was developed for desktop use and has had to be drastically modified to fit the demands of the modern online market, while Xero was built form the ground up to be simple and effective online accounting software. You can access your data from any computer as the information is kept on the cloud, backups are performed regularly, itâs very easy to send the data, the software is updated regularly, there is round the clock support and the interface is very user-friendly. The best of all is that Xero can be used on both Mac and Windows platforms as well as the iPhone and Android devices while you are on the go.

Employee training
There are plenty of options when it comes to training your staff in the use of Xero such as learning in a classroom or online, and can be provided for both the older and more experienced accountants and those fairly unfamiliar with bookkeeping software. Learning through web seminars can be very easy and cheap, as one can learn from the comfort of their own home. Alternatively a company can organize onsite training for groups.
Conversions
You will find that most companies offering Xero training will offer conversion services as well, the most common being converting accounts from MYOB and Quickbooks. The whole process is quite simple as well. You upload the MYOB or Quickbooks files you wish to convert and provide login information. Following this you will be sent the price and estimated time to completion, and if you find the deal agreeable you will receive your Xero login information in no time.
Keeping up with the ever-evolving computer technology can benefit you greatly and taking things online with Xero is a major step in ensuring steady progress.
