Getting started with Xero
What does the connection do?
The Utilmate-Xero integration does two things.
- Daily at 1pm, Utilmate imports all customer payments from your bank accounts (provided you already have them connected to Xero) to Utilmate and allocates them to the right customer.
- On the 1st of each month, Utilmate exports draft journals to Xero for the previous months' sales.
This reduces manual data entry, saving you time and increasing accuracy.
Important: Utilmate can only be linked to a single Xero organisation. You cannot link separate outlets to multiple Xero organisations.
