Saasu, Xero, Freshbooks, MYOB and more at SBTUG (UPDATED)

Sydney Business and Technology User Group

UPDATED: See notes below.

I need your help please.

This month at the Sydney Business & Technology User Group (SBTUG) we’re covering online accounting, bookkeeping, time tracking and invoicing systems for freelancers and small businesses. But I need some guidance from you:

First, which products should we cover? I’m thinking products like Saasu, Xero, Freshbooks and Zoho. Which others should we include? – ideally we have time for five or six in total. What tools do you use in your business?

UPDATE: A few other products that have been suggested including:
Shoeboxed, MinuteDock, BankLink, FreeAgent, MYOB Live Accounts

And second, who would you recommend we ask to present on them? I’m hoping to have Marc from Saasu along and I’ve just started reaching out to Xero via Twitter. Is there someone you know who uses these products who would be an ideal presenter? Would you be an ideal presenter…

UPDATE 2: Many thanks for your help getting tonight’s SBTUG together. We now have the final agenda up with Saasu, Xero, MYOB, Shoeboxed and Freshbooks sessions, along with a big panel session with all speakers. Here’s the agenda:

  1. For one of your next #SBTUGS we’d love to see our SaaS product for Accounting Frms covered: RSDataWeb is a data automation and integration tool, which helps its professional users to cut down drastically on data preparation time and costs. We import transactions from a multitude of reliable sources and export with one click to several professional accounting packages. RSDataWeb is currently mostly used by accountants that administer Self managed superfunds, family trusts and company accounts. Happy to present ourselves or ask client to present.

  2. Hi, really enjoyed my first SBTUG session.

    For anyone looking for an Australian based complete business management system, including full accounting and payroll have a look at http://myworkspace.com.

    It also includes a Platform as a Service offering, which allows the creation of WebApplications using the myworkspace.com base and using the inbuilt website hosting environment. Also includes tradional SOAP based edge-connector webservices.

    This year, celebrating 10 years of delivering SaaS solutions and looking forward to the next 10! Our new look and feel comes out in October – very excited!

  4. What was the outcome of this get together? Our manager said that sass the best, but we are using google apps and like the integration features of freshbooks. Xero’s pricing just seems to start at $50 realistically and we’ve heard some rigidity in what they offer. It would be great to see a followup about this topic
