Hello world. We hear you.

We’ve gotten a surge in demand from people around the world, thanks to the attention we’re getting from winning the 10 Best Apps of 2008 award.

People are asking “When will Xero be available in [insert country of choice]?”

Daniel Mettler of Switzerland wrote this appeal to us on his blog

Note that Xero is not available for purchase in Switzerland yet (hopefully soon). You can still try the demo though.

I’ve quickly tested Xero. Conclusion so far: I like it a lot! It delivers, what most startup companies need in regard to accounting and it makes things as easy as possible. In fact, I’ve never seen a more intuitive accounting system before! It will definitely set the new benchmark in its class. Let’s hope there will be a Swiss edition soon. Kudos to the makers of Xero in NZ: You rock!

Thanks Daniel and everyone for all the interest and feedback!

As you’d imagine, designing and building a proper yet fun-to-use accounting system that scales globally is no small task. Our approach has been to evolve Xero with the feedback of customers and partners in our initial markets, while building up our internal systems to scale internationally.

The plan is to have a global version ready by early 2009.

Sign up now to try Xero for free we’ll email you as soon as the global version is ready.

Just wanted to say that us here at OZland are looking forward to seeing this cross the border. I noticed you changed the target from September to “couple of months”.

Please keep us updated(we’ve already signed up for the demo), but once you get here, we’ll be the first to sign up :)

We’re neck deep in BAS reports. You Australians sure have lots of things you need to do! But not long now. Will be before the Global version.
