Find out how you can save time and grow your practice with the Xero Starter plan

Accountant Alex Falcon Heurta works in Xero on their laptop while at a cafe.

Xero has allowed Alex to spend more time with clients, when previously she was too busy juggling spreadsheets, putting paperwork together, and taking trips back and forth to the filing cabinet.

“I don’t do that anymore,” she laughs. “With all the tools that I use now, I genuinely have more time to actually talk to clients on a more personal level, and to understand what they want.”
