Tools

WHO PAYS FOR AND SUPPORTS THE ACCOUNTING TOOLS?

Catching Clouds does. When you become a customer, we will clearly identify the tools included with our services. Except in rare circumstances, we will pay for all related tools. We support all these tools and the integration as part of your accounting system.

WHY DO YOU USE XERO?

We love Xero for the smart way it handles data and gets us closer to zero entry. Check out this blog about why it makes our heart go pitter pat.

I CAN'T FIND A TOOL THAT I NEED. CAN YOU HELP WITH THAT?

Absolutely. There are literally hundreds of apps that can be used to support your ecommerce business from inventory to repricers to listing tools and more, so we completely understand why it can be daunting. Not only do we have a lot of experience with a bunch of different applications, but we are also able to vet different apps and quickly learn how they would integrate (or not) into your accounting system. This is one of the areas where we shine.

WHY DON'T YOU USE QUICKBOOKS DESKTOP OR QUICKBOOKS ONLINE?

In our opinion, business owners shouldn't have to be experts in accounting or accounting technology in order to collaborate on the software and understand their financial information. Xero makes this easy; QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online do not. We have a lot of reasons why Xero is better for ecommerce businesses. Articles in our blog help summarize some of our thoughts about why we prefer Xero over QuickBooks Online.  Just click on the Xero category.

And here's a full review Patti wrote about Xero on trustradius.com.

WHAT ADD-ON TOOLS ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH?

Here is a list of the tools we use regularly with our customers, but we also have direct experience with two or three times as many as those listed. We also pick up software easily, so if there's a tool you can't live without and want to find out if we can integrate it into your system, just ask. We can check it out for you and incorporate it if it's possible. No problem.
