Hybrid online software offerings to face market scrutiny in 2013: Xero

Patrick Budmar | Jan. 14, 2013
The pace by which SMBSs adopted the Cloud in 2012 was surprising, according to Xero Australia managing director, Chris Ridd, who said adoption was much quicker than originally anticipated.

Xero also has plans to introduce a new look UI for its Cloud Practice Management solution for partners, along with the full release of Work Papers, which Ridd said is currently in beta testing with over 30 of its Australian partners.

"Perhaps most exciting will be the first phases of release of our online tax lodgment platform that is currently under development, which we know many accountants out there are chomping at the bit to see," he said.

Xero's accounting and bookkeeping partners will be interested to know that the practice tools will be available for free when partners sign up 25 or more customers onto Xero.

"That's a very different approach to software in the accounting space, and one that should bring further disruption to the industry," Ridd said.
