Why we love them: Xero is easy to use, accurate, and provides a simple invoicing process for hoteliers and providers! It also saves you time.

Running an accommodation business is demanding. Whether it is a hotel, motel, or lodge, using a simple, yet powerful PMS like Preno with Xero can save you time, money and reduce errors. Some of the benefits of using Xero are:

  • Create customised recurring online invoices for regular suppliers.
  • Real-time data when you connect Xero with Preno
  • Easily track inventory and stock.
  • Pay your staff quickly with simple online payroll software

At Preno we are constantly working to improve how we work with Xero. We’re excited to announce you can now have more custom mappings from Preno to your chart of accounts in Xero. 

This updated integration gives you more control over your mappings, especially if you require more than one account for revenue, expenses, and bank accounts.   

This update allows you to:

  • Specify a revenue account per room type or an extra
  • Specify a separate commission account per agent
  • Specify a different bank account per a payment method – and have multiple bank accounts linked to Preno
  • Manage your cashflow and EFTPOS separately

To update your Xero settings in Preno, go to the ‘Settings’ tab, then hit ‘Integrations’ and ‘Xero’. You’ll find more information in this helpdesk article about connecting multiple accounts.

What is Xero?

Xero is a cloud accounting software designed for small businesses. Because it’s online, you can access it from anywhere you have an internet connection (just like your Preno account). Your bank statements are automatically imported and categorised, giving you a real-time picture of your finances. Xero allows you to manage your invoices, pay bills, manage tax returns, and view insightful reports related to your business finances.

The Preno-Xero integration

When Xero is integrated with Preno, it creates a seamless online accounting solution for hoteliers. The Preno-Xero integration connects your front office admin with your back office accounting. This integration creates a seamless flow from Preno about your guest’s stay, to Xero, making it easy to produce invoices and reconcile your bank statements. Billing and agent commission can also be managed with ease.
