Yes, Xero is a fully cloud-based system. You can access it from an internet enabled phone, tablet or desktop/laptop computer, and multiple users can work on it simultaneously.
The cloud is a secure platform to make data and software accessible online anytime, anywhere, from any device. Xero was built in the cloud – for the cloud. This is unlike many accounting systems that were built for desktop and later adapted to be in the cloud. With Xero, all you need is an internet connection to access financial data. Xero automatically releases upgrades, so when you access the product you’re always using the most up-to-date version. There’s no business downtime or costs associated with upgrades.
