Xero Accounting Module WrightZone’s Business Accounting API works seamlessly with your existing accounting applications. We are excited to introduce our new Xero accounting module. Longburn Shingle Company Ltd has bee trading successfully, for a few months now, with our newest Xero API and you can read their success story HERE. Features include:

  • Bi-directional Sync – Add a Customer in the WrightZone Weighbridge (WZWB) software and it is automatically added to the Xero module and vice versa. The same is also true for products or inventory. This is a great time saver and helps reduce data entry error.
  • Synchronize, Scheduled (overnight) or Manual (click) methods for exporting transactions from WZWB into Xero, so you can create daily reports or reports on demand.
  • Transaction Editing (w/ Audit Analytics) is reported as Standard; if you’re in the quarrying and transport industries, you’ll appreciate this, since incorrect Job/Order and their accompanying Purchase Order references is too regular of an occurrence.
  • Docket (Ticket) When an account’s invoice line is exported then edited, our B-API updates the Xero invoice Header and Line detail accordingly with the new Job/Order and accompanying Purchase Order, Invoice References.
  • Invoice export into Xero provisions for user mistakes, systematically removing Header and Line detail from one invoice (of Draft Status) and adding it to another, on the editing of a weighbridge docket or ticket inside WZWB.
  • Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Invoice period end dates are Standard.
  • GUI (General User Interface) includes a toolset to compare the data between the software applications; offering Approved (Xero) versus Locked (WZWB). Counts by each invoice line and net total software comparisons ensure everything’s a match. And, when it’s not a match? The Synchronize Method of exporting guarantees a match between the software apps resulting in an emailed invoice, directly from Xero.
