Saasu has grown up in the shadow of Xero. However, it’s a very competent application that you should consider.

Functionally, it’s very similar to the other players in this market. The main dashboard puts some key metrics right in front of you so you can focus on your business. A summary of your Profit and Loss report, cash-flow, and Balance Sheet are there along with outstanding invoices, with overdue items highlighted in red, and outstanding bills you need to pay. All those can be moved around so you can ensure the information that’s most important to you is easy to see.

The one thing that’s missing from the dashboard is one-click access to common activities. For example, to add a new invoice, I either need to go to the sales screen or click the add button on the top menu and then choose sale from the list of items. A simple “Add new invoice” button on the sales summary on the dashboard would be a far more elegant solution.

Saasu supports payroll, bank feeds and inventory management although the number of annual transactions you can perform, employees you can have and bank feeds varies depending on your subscription level. At $15 per month, you get 1000 transactions for the year, three bank feeds, no payroll or inventory management. For $180 per month, you get 100,000 transactions, 20 bank feeds, 100 employees and a slew of other features.

Mobile users aren’t left out with a nice mobile application that makes it easy to enter sales and purchases. However, I was annoyed at not being able to edit the GST code for a sale. I wanted to sell an item without charging GST and wasn’t able to change the code on the mobile app. I suspect that’s not a problem everyone will share but it was something I hit.

Saasu is a competent application but feels a little clunkier than the others: 3.5/5

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
