0326 Masterclass in Xero Accounting Software

Schedule: March 26, April 2 & 9, 2021 Time: 10:00AM to 2:00PM

Course Description

Online accounting is here to stay! While Robotic Process Automation (RPA) will take over the routine transactions in accounting, the skill sets needed to make any software work for the business is still dependent on the team that runs the system!

This 4-part live online masterclass course will surely help you build that confidence to understand and navigate through the system and make it work for you!  Having a mindset of an end-user of any systems crates the difference between the recording of transactions and using transactions as building blocks for meaningful business history log.

This course will provide the focus on the cloud accounting that is replacing the confined accounting systems in huge servers tucked in an office.  Online accounting provides the business owners and decision makers the access to information anytime, anyway, any gadgets.  Do the approval of purchases, sales quotes and replenishment of expenses in real-time!

Don’t you think you need to upskill your technical knowledge on these matters?
