Xero and Telstra join forces
Telstra, Australia’s largest telco, has just announced at a press conference over in Sydney that Xero has become a part of their T-Suite service offering.
T-Suite is Telstra’s Software as a Service platform. Here Australia’s small businesses can save costs by leasing software instead of outright purchasing expensive systems. Other software vendors already part of T-Suite are: business productivity from Microsoft and on-demand security software by McAfee.
Xero fits in perfectly with the T-Suite as: it’s accessed purely over the internet, subscribers pay a small monthly fee instead of hefty purchase licenses, aims to improve cashflow for small businesses, and reduces IT demands by letting users focus on more important tasks while the software is updated automatically.
Form June 2009, Xero will be available to over 700 000 of Telstra’s small business customers.
