Xero is amongst our favourite software packages and we always encourage our members to become Xero Accredited. The package is affordable, easy to use and a fantastic tool for many businesses to have. By becoming accredited you can open new doors in your career and even broaden your client base, see how below.
Being very reasonable in price means that more businesses are willing to try it out. You can also sample the software with a trial which allows your client to really get stuck in before they have even made a payment. Being accredited may increase the likelihood of a client subscription, they may be more likely to invest in your recommendation due to your experience with the package.
Ease of use
It’s very user friendly so you don’t have to be a bookkeeper to know how to use it. This is one of the reasons why it appeals to so many business owners. By becoming accredited you are showing your client that you have a vast knowledge and you could potentially become their trainer.
It looks fantastic on your CV
A prospective client may look for qualifications that indicate you have used Xero before. Having a certificate proves to your client that you’re committed and experienced with the software. Certification can enable you to stand out from the crowd.
More and more are switching
Xero is fast becoming an industry favourite and many more companies are switching to it, there are now 100,000 users in the UK! Your clients may choose to eventually switch and your competitors might too. To stay ahead of the game it can be important to gain a good knowledge of the software and become a cloud guru.
You can support clients easier
As the package is cloud based it means that you can access it from anywhere with an internet connection. This is particularly useful for bus
y self-employed bookkeepers who may struggle to take a holiday. This enables you to be away on that cruise of a lifetime and still check in on your clients now and again using your phone or other device.
