T H E R E M A T C H: Sage vs Xero vs QuickBooks - Which is the best accounting software platform for your business?


In October this year, we put two accounting giants, Sage & Xero, in the ring to battle it out for the cloud accounting platform heavyweight crown. 


The OnlineX audience could not decide between these accounting software giants, as the vote was split 50/50 down the line.


The time for the much-anticipated rematch has arrived.  And to spice things up a bit,we’ve invited the pretender to the throne, QuickBooks, to shake things up a bit.


So, if you’re feeling confused and conflicted about which accounting software is best for your business, then worry  no more. Our next ‘Versus’ webinar will tell all.


Struggling to keep on top of your finances? Looking for a

more efficient way to analyse your business’s financial health?


Deciding which solution to go for can be challenging, especially when they (appear to) offer so many similar core features.

Which is the right one for your business? Sage, Xero or QuickBooks?

In the Sage corner we have the owner of The Business Boutique, Celeste Summerton, who effortlessly movesacross industries, giving ‘sage’ advice.

Always curious, Summerton is at the cutting edge of accounting and business, on and offline platform development and solutions.
