It's a great way to stay on top of your projects, tracking your time and costs as you go about your business. For designers, tradespeople, professionals and anyone who takes on projects and bills for their time, Xero Projects is an ideal solution for you.

What can Xero Projects do for you?

  • It allows you to track your time, enter expenses and record any deposits against each project so you can bill accurately on time. You can cost projects and track budgets with ease.

  • It has a lot of flexibility when it comes to invoicing for projects. Create fixed price, progress payments, or time and materials invoices. Details can be uploaded automatically, saving you time and avoiding errors.

  • It lets you monitor project performance with up-to-the-minute time tracking and key insights. Simple project reports help you keep on budget and decide when to invoice.

It can easily be added to your Xero subscription!

There are many good reasons to try Xero Projects, and I've listed a few of the top ones below:

  • Monitor budgets and job costs from day to day to stay on track

  • Create and manage as many projects as you want

  • Add task estimates and track budgets with ease

  • Record every minute you work with a stop-start timer

  • Create fixed price, time and materials, or progress payment invoices

If you're already a Xero customer, you can get a month's free trial by adding Xero Projects to your subscription and there's even a smartphone app for you to download from Apple and Google.

But if you're not yet a customer, you can try both Xero and Xero Projects free for 30 days and the best thing is that, as a Xero Gold Partner, Essendon can help and advise every step of the way.
