A browse of the Xero website this afternoon shows a list of some features due to be released in the coming months. Stuff to look out for includes;
- Job costing
The full comparison chart is here.
Of course it’s a very Xero-centric chart, it doesn’t show the stuff that the competition does and Xero does not. Some features that I’d like to see included ASAP include;
- Native payroll (ie the same look and feel as Xero)
- Automatic payments from Xero
- A wizard to set up Xero automagically
With these things in place, Xero would do all that the others do, with the added benefits that SaaS brings.
