Integration is bad

Lightspeed is good on its own, but the integration with Xero is garbage. It works just more than 50% of the time for us, and has not been fixed in YEARS. Lightspeed violates a few basic accounting principles in the way it keeps its data, so pulling data out of Lightspeed requires spreadsheet manipulation. It is the worst software integration I have to work with.

Hi Bryce, I am a bookkeeper and am helping a bicycle shop in QLD Brisbane set up with Lightspeed and Xero. Would you have five minutes to chat and get a general idea how you set up you categories especially with Bicycles and Frames with serial numbers? Many thanks Clare

I am experiencing the same issue with an 'Inventory' type account in Xero not showing up in Shogo/Lightspeed Accounting for mapping with Lighspeed categories. Is this something Xero needs to address from their end? The 'Current Asset' type account may be the workaround for now, but is this likely to get a fix in order to be able to use 'Inventory' type accounts? I am following the Shogo/LSA guide to post separate payment deposit invoices awaiting payment together with an itemized (or summary) invoice with total payments posting to the Xero 'Tracking Transfers' system account clearing a zero balance. Does the use of the 'Tracking Transfers' system account for this pose any potential problem, if Xero were to lock this account for posting in the future as it apparently does with 'Inventory' type accounts? I am still waiting on an answer to these questions from both Xero and Shogo/LSA before proceeding to activate posting to Xero from Shogo/LSA. Hope to hear back!
