Receipt Bank is a digital accounting platform that is designed to simplify data entry by cutting out the need for chasing paperwork and entering data. Seamlessly integrating with accounting software like Xero, MYOB and QuickBooks Online, it allows clients to submit receipts, invoices and bills through their Receipt Bank email or mobile app.
This New Zealand innovation is a favourite with small to medium-sized businesses due to its user-friendly capabilities. Some benefits of Xero include the capacity to set up a direct feed so data is automatically uploaded into Xero, saving businesses time and allowing for complete accuracy.
This cloud-based technology allows businesses to access their data in real-time so they are always in control of their cash flow. You can also streamline the invoicing process with online invoices and automated reminders for outstanding payments.
Xero also integrates with Xero HQ apps and third-party software so you can enjoy a complete business solution. From reporting to digital marketing and tax solutions, there’s a huge range of options to suit the needs of your enterprise.
