Beautiful software for those who use time to bill ... seamless integration with Xero

Gayle Buchanan  

I use Harvest all day, every day, from any device. Love the ease of use! The integration with Xero is perfect!

Susan Cisternelli  

If it were not for Harvest would be still using "old school" paper timesheets - we have been best friends forever for close to 2 years. Recommend anyone in business large or small hop onto their regular webinars and see how cool it is to use. Billing time and expense claims breeze.

Gillian Rossouw  

Very good integration, makes our posting to Xero and billing so much faster.

Darryl Collins  

The integration is good as far as it goes. However, wouldn't it be even better if payments posted in Xero were passed back to Harvest (just like the integration between WorkflowMax and xero) meaning that entry didn't have to be made in both systems?

Kevin Meakings  

I agree with Kevin. It's nice having the integration, but why make it only one way? Why not have any invoice reconciled in Xero record payment in Harvest?

Kind of feels like only half the effort was put into this plugin....

I'm currently four days into a trial with Harvest. Can't believe how simple it is to configure and use. Have already sent out a few quotes and my first invoice today. Excited much!!

Personally I'm glad that the integration only works one way as I prefer to manage AR from within Xero and wouldn't want to clog up my spanky Harvest account with a whole lot of repeating invoices that are irrelevant to the way I intend to use it.

I've been using Harvest for several years. Just migrating into Xero and am very happy to see the links. Harvest allows seamless addition of new employees whether part-time or full-time and one or multiple project areas. Easy for complex patterns - for staff and contractors

Any thoughts on the best way to post payments in Xero that were paid and posted in Harvest?

@RD Katie from Harvest here. I wanted to let you know that copying invoice payments from Harvest to Xero is just around the corner. If you want to be a part of the beta group, drop us a line here: http://hrv.st/hURkj6. Thanks!

Plan to move to Xero, but depend on a good invoicing system for doing recurring invoices/payments. Thought it could be a good ide to use Harvest for this?
How "tight" is the integration?
Is the transfer of invoices, payments, reversal of payments, creditnotes 100%?

Would like to use the AR in Xero for reporting, and as the "master", and would realy need to be confident that nothing is "lost in translation". Are there any "reconciliation" reports regarding the Ar balances in Harvest/Xero?

Thank you!
