Where do you Xero?

I’m kept fairly busy reading and responding to our Twitter account, @Xero. But one of the most satisfying things is tagging as ‘favorites‘ tweets such as these two that came through on Friday – never ceases to amaze me where people are using Xero!

What about you? Where do you Xero?

After 9 September Earthquake at 4.30 in the morning I jumped on my laptop with Tstick (as no power) and updated my clients bank feeds on Xero – no friends on Facebook at that time. My sister-in-law spends days in hospital with her sick child so does her Xero from there.

Can you reconcile on the iphone? I tried it on the demo co with the wifes phone and coundnt get it to work.

Would love to be able to do it on the bus.

To add to Derek’s comments – we have regular Skype conferences from Gold Coast, Qld to Turkey just like being in his office working along side one another. Xero sure has given Benson Court a lifeline.
