How does accounts integration (e.g. Xero integration) work?

Accounts integration is typically a one-way process, where information (i.e. your sales invoices, sales credits, purchase invoices and purchase credits) from the manufacturing control software (e.g. QuickWorks MRP) is uploaded into your accounting software (e.g. Xero Accounting). This process eliminates the need for the double entry of data, along with the potential errors, and enables your accounts to be kept up to date. 

What is Xero Accounting Software?

Xero accounting software, known also as Xero accounting or simply Xero, is a cloud-based accounting package targeted at small businesses. Xero claim to "make small business accounting easy". Xero accounting incorporates all the modules you would expect an accounting software package to do, including payroll. Like most modern accounting packages, with automated bank feeds and links to payment methods (e.g. Gocardless, Stripe, Paypal, etc), it makes transaction management easy. Furthermore, Xero Accounting facilitates making tax digital with its links to HMRC.

Why have separate manufacturing and accounts software?

In a manufacturing business, bills of material, routings and stock play a major part in quotations, sales orders, purchasing, production control, production planning and invoicing, consequently it makes sense to have all these elements in one system. So why not include accounts? The short answer is that, if you are a smaller manufacturer, you have to find a system that accommodates both sets of functionality, whilst meeting the specific needs of your business (e.g. responsiveness, flexibility, simplicity and ease of use) at a cost that is acceptable. Furthermore, as your business develops, your needs may change, so you would potentially need to find another complex hybrid system, which often includes some costly customisation, training and a drawn-out implementation plan. If you elect to separate the systems, but have them integrate with each other, you have a greater number of options to choose from. Then downstream, if your business needs to change, you only have to change the system that is presenting a challenge, without having to migrate from one complex system to another. If you decide to go down the two-system route, the key is the two systems you select must not only meet your requirements, they should also integrate (e.g. QuickWorks with Xero Integration).

How can QuickWorks, with Xero Integration, help you save time and improve your responsiveness?

QuickWorks can save you time by managing your manufacturing business (enquiries through to invoicing) all in one system and then, with Xero Integration, eliminate the need for double entry. Furthermore, by managing your Bills of Material and Routings quickly and swiftly dealing with your changes, QuickWorks can help you improve your responsiveness.
