Companies are steering away from traditional bookkeeping techniques and embracing platforms such as Xero and QuickBooks to digitally keep track of their transactions. With useful data gathered and displayed instantly on your dashboard, these platforms help to make better business decisions and mean you don’t get lost in a stack of receipts.
