Get The New Xero Expenses App For Free

Xero Expenses has received a big update and you can access the new and improved features for free until 28 September 2018.

Bolstered by AI, the new and improved expenses add-on will speed up expenses management and give you greater visibility over your finances.

As a thank you to existing Xero customers, the company is offering Xero Expenses for free until the 29 September.

After this date, a small additional fee of £2.50 per user per month will be payable to use the expenses feature.

Xero claims that the price increase reflects the additional value the expenses feature will add for customers.

Mobile-first expenses

Xero announced an overhaul of the software’s expenses functionality last year. New Zealand boss Rod Drury cited a desire to ‘completely reimagine’ the expenses process as a mobile-first experience.

At the centre of the renovation is a powerful new mobile app that allows employees to submit expense claims. It uses artificial intelligence to save time, effort and processing costs.

The add-on to Xero allows customers to automate data entry and streamline everything from submitting expenses through to reconciling transactions. 

One of the best new features is an intelligent receipt scanner, which identifies information like amount and location of an expense and automatically creates a new entry.

With one log-in, Xero Expenses works seamlessly with Xero Accounting and it can be accessed using an Android or iOS app, which automatically updates entries in real-time.

The new app also gives you more control over who views, approves and pays claims and allows you to monitor expenses to manage cash flow and make more informed decisions.

The classic expense claim functionality will be available until 31 January 2019. After this date, only historical entries will be visible for users.

Miles Grady, Director of Cloud Accountant said: “From what we know about how our clients use Xero, we are sure that these new features will be a hit.

“Updating workflows always presents a challenge, but I urge all Xero users to make the switch to Xero Expenses as soon as possible so that they can benefit from the improvements and make the most of this free trial.”
