Accounting software that can do more
As a small company, you usually do your accounting and administration yourself: often with several different programs, among other things for accounting, order processing and administration. The disadvantages: unnecessarily high software costs and chaos in administration and accounting.
That's why bexio is more than just a piece of bookkeeping software: we combine what you would otherwise require several individual software packages for. All in one intuitive and clear piece of business software, perfectly tailored to the needs of SMEs. With bexio, you have everything you need clearly in one place.
So, you no longer have to switch multiple times between time tracking software, Word and your accounting program if, for example, you want to create an invoice based on your hours worked and post this: you can record your times in bexio and transfer them directly into the integrated invoice template. You can then send the invoice directly to bexio in just one click. And the posting? That is done automatically. Simple. Thanks to the e-banking interface, you can also see at any time which invoices have already been settled and which ones are still unpaid. Even payment reminders and warnings can be sent automatically!
