    So, Xero or Saasu for a small aussie firm?

  2. Ben Kepes

    JB – If Xero’s functionality is enough for you (ie you don’t need stock etc) then I’d say go for Xero given it’s auto bank feeds and more user friendly UI. If you need stock and more advanced functionality then Saasu

    I agree of Xero benefits:

    * _slightly_ more user friendly than Saasu, though after some use with Saasu I think Saasu is not bad at all
    * the UI controls are also better (i.e. the grid)
    * Workflow is better, i.e. it gives you hints after doing something, what next
    * Xero has a better looking dashboard with charts

    Saasu also has its benefits:
    * Most forms are somewhat more detailed than Xero
    * Item/inventory features
    * Payroll feature (not every one will use it though)
    * relatively more economical (see below)

    I think Xero is more expensive. The basic edition is USD19/mo and limited to 5 invoices of each type.

    Saasu starts at AUD25/mo which is USD 15.7/mo and provides unlimited transactions (subject to fair use). Xero’s unlimited transactions plan is USD29/mo which is about twice Saasu’s price.

    Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated (yet) with either company.

    Hopefully this will change for the better, if Xero can provide better service to compete with Saasu, in the end users will benefit, affordable and better service for all 😀

    In addition, Saasu offers a free plan 20 transactions limit/mo. That is approximately 10 receivable + payable invoices. Compared to Xero’s 5 each with $19/mo, Saasu’s free plan is more practical esp. for sellers.

    As a Danish firm and a web devleoper, this is a hard choice. I believe after seraching the net, that Sassu has the benefits right now.
    But Xero also has some nice features, and alot of features on the way.

    I wanted a system with iphone integration and a user-friendly layout. My choice for now is Sassu.
