Xero, QuickBooks vs Odoo ERP

Xero and QuickBooks are both standalone accounting software packages, commonly referred to as accounting software or accounting platforms. 

Xero and QuickBooks are designed to cater to a broad range of businesses and accounting needs. They offer various features such as bookkeeping, invoicing, payroll, inventory management, and financial reporting, making them comprehensive solutions for managing finances in businesses of various sizes and industries.

The software has been designed to address the accounting needs of small businesses and does achieve this.  However, if your small business needs a standalone Accounting app then Odoo's one free app forever surely makes it the best option for small businesses! All the accounting features you need, at no cost.



Odoo's "one free app forever" offer allows you to use a single app for free, making it an excellent, cost-effective choice for businesses primarily looking for accounting software.

Odoo’s AI algorithm will automatically reconcile lines as it learns about your transactions, suggesting matches if it is unsure.

Invoice Automation

Allows the AI system to recognise the document layout and grab the appropriate data so that future invoices issued by this vendor are processed perfectly.

Multi Adaptations Support

Multi-company, multi-language, multi-currency, with the exchange rate updating daily. Accounting across multiple companies is possible with different journals, based on different companies, or by departments. Various reports and 'unrealised gains and losses' reports allow users to generate reevaluation journal entries.
