Why accounting practices choose Xero Practice Manager

At Abacus Business Solutions, we work across a significant range of business sizes and styles within the Accounting and Bookkeeping sector. Between them we've found that there are common reasons why businesses choose to assess Xero Practice Studio as a tool.

A single integrated solution for your business

Many firms are disenchanted with their existing practice management solution – whether that's due to cost, functionality, technical limits, lack of enhancements, usability and so on. What businesses are often looking for are the cost advantages and operational freedom that the cloud offers, but that is only part of the decision criteria. More often than not people are after more integrated and functional solutions that enable them to better develop, manage and measure their business.

Xero Practice Manager is an integrated solution that combines Client engagement, Job Management, Timesheets, Tax lodgement, Invoicing and reporting. This single solution stack is perfectly positioned for users, management and administrators to invest in. XPM offers businesses one environment to learn, use and manage.
