The next iteration of Xero HQ was launched today with a set of third-party apps being integrated into Xero’s offerings to accounting and bookkeeping practices.
Speaking at Xero’s annual Asia Pacific region conference Xerocon in Melbourne, Xero’s chief partner officer Anna Curzon said that the nine integrated apps were selected in response to findings from a survey of 2000 accountants and bookkeepers.
“Feedback has told us that accounting and bookkeeping partners want to know which technology they should be working with to create their ultimate practice experience,” Ms Curzon said.
“That’s why we have curated a thoughtful group of third-party applications integrated into Xero HQ, which provide solutions to help our partners take advantage of technology to automate the mundane tasks, and focus on providing superior service to their clients.”
For example, one of the app partnerships is with online legal document and corporate compliance platform, Now Infinity, which aims to simplify corporate and trust compliance processes.
The NowInfinity partnership will provide the Xero HQ hub with an intelligent interface that streamlines corporate compliance alerts, legal document creation and manages data integrity actions.
Some features of the collaboration between Xero HQ and NowInfinity include single processing of ASIC company formation through to client creation and simultaneously establishing a Xero org. NowInfinity’s data integrity solution also reduces human error and enables data validation, notification and action to resolve.
The other eight app partners launched today are Boma, Fathom, FUTRLI, Hubdoc, Practice Ignition, Receipt Bank, Suite Files and Spotlight Reporting.
