Xero Training Guides Make Streamlining Cloud Accounting Simple for Your Business

Posted by Carol-Ann Brouwer at Friday, May 08, 2015

Ready to make the switch to Xero - the beautiful accounting software - but worried you won’t have enough time to learn how to use it (and all its many features) successfully with so many other demands as you run your business?

Accounting Anywhere’s practical and comprehensive XERO training guides make understanding and using the world’s most popular cloud-based accounting software an achievable goal. Even the busiest small- and medium-sized business owners can take a do-it-yourself approach to mastering Xero with Accounting Anywhere’s Xero training, conversion, or set-up services.

Whether you’re starting a business or interested in converting from another accounting and payroll system (like Sage50 or QuickBooks), the benefits of Xero are well worth considering:

  • there is nothing to install

  • upgrades are free

  • Xero performs automatic backups

  • you can use Xero from any device

  • multiple users can access an account in real time

  • Xero connects to myriad popular business apps

Carol-Ann Brouwer, founder and CEO of Accounting Anywhere, has taken her expertise as a Global Trainer for Xero, experience as a XU (Xero User) Magazine Ambassador for Canada, and years training and consulting on desktop software and created excellent Xero training manuals for small and medium businesses. (She's also a sought-after Speaker and Lecturer on all things Cloud Accounting and Xero.)

She understands that while Xero is celebrated for setting a new standard for ease of use and functionality it is daunting for business owners to switch to accounting in the cloud or learn a new accounting software on their own. Carol-Ann’s extensive background in banking, accounting and taxation make these manuals a wonderful resource.

Accounting Anywhere’s self-paced training manuals walk business owners through setup, configuration, and day-to-day activities. The training manuals are available to purchase by download so you can get started learning Xero for your business right away:
