Why ice cream shop Gelato Messina loves Xero

Gelato Messina started in 2002 as just one store in Sydney. As the business grew, the owners realised they needed accounting software that would grow with them.

When they expanded into the United States, using Xero meant their business partners and staff could access the finances from anywhere, at any time.

Convenience and ease of use were two of the main reasons co-founder Declan Lee turned to Xero.

“A cloud-based system is much more intuitive for people like us who aren’t really accountants, but know a little bit about accounting,” says business owner Declan Lee.

Being able to tap into the numbers anywhere, anytime with Xero is a key ingredient in the success of this unique business.

Life before Xero was pretty clunky. Xero is a cloud-based system and that’s the most convenient thing about it. Our business partners have always got access to the numbers.
