These are considered the internet’s most respected benchmark of success, also called the ‘Oscars of the internet’. This year they received nearly 10,000 entries from over 60 countries, marking the largest number of entries in its history.
Both Xero software and the Xero marketing site were nominated in the Banking / Bill Paying category. The Xero application won the Webby Award as well as also winning the People’s Voice Award in this same category.
One of the Xero team will be flying to New York for the star studded ceremony, to rub shoulders with other Webby Award winners like Trent Reznor, Lisa Kudrow and Twitter co-founder Biz Stone.
The Awards are not only renowned for acknowledging internet brilliance, but also for their five -word-acceptance speech rule – we’ve started work on ours already.
Having people vote for us in the People’s Voice award was incrediably rewarding, seeing comments like these really make us feel we are helping out small business owners all over the world:
Xero is fun to use and makes keeping track of everything a breeze. Moving from M**B to Xero was like moving from the ark to the spaceship. Amazing. Best online user interface I know.
Xero is THE best thing since ‘sliced bread’. Thank you Xero for making scary accounting things so easy.
I’m a raving fan of Xero. A web developer myself, and this application is so beautiful it makes me want to cry :-). It’s intuitive and very user friendly. Sheer brilliance
If Xero was a person I would like to give them a big hug, I am no longer scared about accounting and I owe it all this brilliant piece of software. Accounting with xero as sad as it may sound is actually fun, I am addicted for life! Xero won me over from all the other competitors (even the free ones) with its lovely interface, easy-to-use workflows, and excellent and relevant help (go the tech writer!).
