We thought we’d give you a bit of an update about schools and Xero. A growing number of schools are choosing Xero as their accounting system. The feedback we had early on was that it would be great to have a one-step solution for schools. What does that mean? Part of it is integrating an accounting system with a student management system, to save on time and data entry. This is why we’ve partnered with Schola.
Another thread is ensuring we get the accounting requirements for schools right. We don’t want to see Charts of Accounts with 600+ items, but instead implement an easy to use Chart and ensure our Tracking features allow the right reports to be easily obtained.
We’ve had a number of discussions with people about their requirements and what they’d like to see in a school accounting solution. And as we move into design and development, we thought it would be useful to create a LinkedIn Group to engage with those that are interested in school accounting.
Feel free to join our Accounting for Schools group and let us know directly what you’d like to see in Xero for Schools.
