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 GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/HP Spectre x360

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
