Xero & QuickBooks Slug it out on Receipt Scanning Features

Xero Accounting Pricing Comparison shows extra for Projects and Expenses - Online Training Courses & Advanced Xero Certificate

I find it interesting to see the messages coming from both these companies. They seem to arrive at similar times and it shows that they are very closely watching each others digital marketing messages and fighting for your attention by revealing what they are doing for you, their clients. 

This week Xero sent a message about cashflow forecasting and QuickBooks sent a message about their receipt scanning and data capture but which one is more important right now? I’ve attached the email message sent from each company for you to compare.

Start or buy an online drop shipping business using Shopify and Oberlo - online training courses to work remotely from home - EzyLearn

I’ve been speaking to an ex-corporate employee from the US lately and we were talking about buying an online business. It’s something that I have spoken with people about a lot but it seems to be more relevant now that we’re all stuck at home!

Work remotely from home - Payroll training courses, Xero Payroll Course, MYOB Payroll training courses - EzyLearn

ALERT: Reckon One Training Course PRE-Launch SPECIAL

Reckon One cheap accounting software for tradies and small business - STP Payroll training courses - EzyLearn

It was in 2018 that I last wrote about Reckon One and how some of their software was far superior to Xero according to the ACCC.

Xero, QuickBooks and even Sage have got around that with the fact that everyone can log into their software in the cloud from any device and it’s now paying off with most people working remotely from home. MYOB also has problems for people wanting to use their software on an iPad. Continue reading One reason why businesses are migrating away from MYOB
