Xerocon 2017: Wrapped

CraigCloud Accounting, General

Last week Stu packed up and headed south of the border to chilly Melbourne, for Xerocon 2017. We joined other accountants and finance professionals to hear loads of exciting announcements, updates and innovations for advisors (that’s us!) and end-users (that’s you!) across the two-day event.

Overall, Xero in 2017 and beyond is continuing its quest to be a more automated and intuitive platform. And from the below updates, we think it’s safe to say Xero are continuing to make doing better business, particularly with staff a breeze.

The two updates from Xerocon, we’re most excited about:

Drive profitability with projects in Xero

A huge announcement at Xerocon was Projects. Projects is the simple way to track the time and money you spend on each job so you can manage it more effectively. Projects are perfect for small businesses in service industries – and allows you to focus on your work and see where you can be more profitable.

Check out what Levi Allan, product manager for Xero Projects, Xero Practice Manager and Workflow Max had to say about Xero Projects to DigitalFirst.com below:

Xero Expense Claims

Expense claims are the simple truth of running almost any business. From petrol, flights, meals, supplies, and everything in between – there are countless expenses that need to be reimbursed to the folks who work in your business. But it’s amazing how the simple task of reimbursing employees turns into a paper-filled/process-filled/follow up-filled back-office nightmare. Not anymore. Xero Expenses will tackle these issues all inside Xero.

The new feature is available to Xero partners in Australia, New Zealand and Asia within practice organisations. If you want to try it out, please contact us and we’ll set you up with a FREE trial.

Once the introductory period ends, a monthly usage fee will apply.
