Upgrading book-keeping software

I am seriously thinking about upgrading my book-keeping software, potentially to Xero as it does look excellent and I have heard such good things about it.

I am just wondering, as it's charged on a per client basis, would you recharge this to the client or suffer the cost yourself as, in my case, it's MY decision to upgrade to the software, so should I make clients pay for that fact?

I am thinking maybe suffer the cost in the first year, show them the benefits as the year progresses, then charge from year 2 onwards.

Does anyone have other opinions?
