Robust and integrated processes around quotes and estimates are a great way to improve small businesses performance.”

  • Visibility into the sales pipeline, with a quote tracked through its lifecycle
  • Fast response time with the ability to create, copy or convert to an invoice quotes from anywhere
  • Integration with invoice capabilities
  • The ability to value price instead of time bill

Quotes is available, at no additional cost, as part of Xero’s small business accounting solution, which starts at $9 per month.
