Packages are delivered within days or hours of being ordered, social media and digital news outlets allows for real-time updates from family and strangers alike, and a quick Google search can answer questions.  As a small business owner, you should expect no less when it comes to your accounting. Software programs such as Xero (Avizo’s preferred platform) have made instant access a whole lot less complicated. If you’re having some doubt on why you should convert from desktop (or physical papers) to online here are a few benefits.
