What can XERO tell us about leadership (Part 2)

Fuzuki Nishimura

XERO entered Australian accounting software market seven years ago. They used to be a boutique-sized business; however, they brought a disruptive innovation that has changed the landscape of accounting industry. Software used to be installed in our computers; and accounting data were handled mostly offline from our desktops. When XERO came out, we just loved it. It allows us to access data from multiple devices. Our clients could now enjoy seeing financial reports from their mobile devices.


Many of our clients love XERO because it is highly customised to their business needs. A grocery owner, who has been our client for more than four years, shared with me that XERO was the best software to handle hundreds of transactions and still able to generate real-time report. That is the reason clients choose to subscribe and stay using XERO for long term.


What can XERO tell us about Leadership? (Part 1)

Harry Hoang

Coming back from XEROCON SOUTH in Brisbane, I kept asking myself about what have we learnt from the event. In the past, we tried to figure out the most suitable accounting software for our business and clients. XERO was the best choice. When at XEROCON SOUTH and talking to my colleagues, I realised that XERO is embarking in a leadership position in cloud accounting, which has never been taken by other big players.

I was keep asking myself about what we have gotten from the event. I asked staff to write few words about their personal feeling so we can consolidate to a good article for B2B this month. Personally, as a CEO of an accounting practice, I am thinking more about the direction, the leadership of the accounting industry in which XERO play a very important part of the Eco system. 10 years ago we all know that MYOB, QuickBooks are the most popular accounting software for SMEs and Accountants.


Imagine a future empowered by the cloud business ecosystem

By Gary Wang*

It is a great time for small businesses here in Australia. With further tax deduction from the federal budget and booming cloud business solutions, small business owners can better align with and achieve their entrepreneurial goals. In this article, I would like to share a few useful cloud business applications and services for small businesses and discuss how business owners can best benefit from using them.

Quick time entry in Practice Manager from Xero

As an outsourced bookkeeping services provider charging clients hourly (and of course, guarantee all jobs are completed at possibly highest standard), Tailored Accounts pays great attention on time tracking. It is time consuming for Tailored Accounts (and for any accounting practice) to record time accurately (but we need to do that for better performance management and billing clients).


Tailored Accounts' Partnership For Better Services Quality

In the pursuit of becoming Canberra’s largest bookkeeping firm within the next five years, Tailored Accounts puts great attention on services quality. To attain that, we have adopted cloud accounting technology, and have partnered with several services providers in the field for time effective and cost efficient solutions to our client’s bookkeeping and accounting systems.

Tailored Accounts partners with various cloud accounting software providers.


What bookkeeping will look like in 2025!

Digital disruption in bookkeeping industry

I attended a conference the day before and listened to a series of speeches on digital disruption. For those unacquainted with digital disruption, the term basically refers to the change brought about by new digital technologies and business models that are affecting the current value proposition of existing goods and services.

Why did we move to cloud accounting?

Cloud accounting makes business more efficient

Why did we move to Xero? Because of the software’s outstanding features? Because of benefits from the partner program? They are all correct. But the ultimate “because” was “because we wanted to be our clients’ choice”. Clients are always the motivation for all our innovations. One of the best innovations we made was converting the system to Xero – cloud accounting system.

Xero - Clould Accounting For The Future

Xero certified partner

As this is the last article of 2014, I will try to sum up what I have written for B2B during the past 6 months. I have introduced XERO – the world’s leading cloud accounting application along with its ecosystem which allows businesses to operate with their browsers instead of their desktops. I still remember this day 5 years ago when the IT technical support officer came to my office to install updates for my company’s server and computers. We ended up with 3 non-operating days due to a range of issues – bugs, non-alignment between the “old” and “new” updates, and conflicting dependencies. Technology will continue to evolve with added features, hence there are more reasons why companies should embrace cloud accounting.


Xero Touch in one touch

The mobile team here at Xero is very pleased to announce that we have just released Touch ID for iOS! Thereby putting your business at your literal fingertips. This has been quite a long time in the making, with Layton having first knocked together a prototype at WWDC back in July. That caused quite a bit of excitement internally:


Using mobile applications to run your business

In my last two columns, I introduced you to two of my favourite mobile applications – Xero and Receipt Bank. I use them on a daily basis and consider them to be part and parcel of my business. The growth in use of mobile devices has led to an explosion in the development of mobile applications. Small-to-medium businesses are using these applications to improve their processes and help their customers, while others have jumped on the bandwagon to develop their own applications for their staff to use or to sell as a product.

Want to run your business on the move, any time and anywhere? If so, an increasing number of apps aimed specifically at small businesses aim to make your life easier – and the lives of your staff. But while smartphones and apps could, in theory, boost output and save time, relatively few small businesses are making use of them, new research suggests.
