Guess the Xero number

Since the beginning we’ve been dedicated to making your business run better than ever.

We love hearing how using Xero has helped give small business owners that much needed visibility of their numbers, making business more profitable or taking it to the next level, and giving back hours previously taken up with tedious manual data entry.

Xero is nearly five years old, and we’re about to release our annual results. There’s loads of “compliance requirements” in this, but we thought we could have some fun and work out how busy Xero customers have been.

Want to have a guess?

Win a Xero engraved iPad by guessing the total New Zealand Dollar value of transactions processed in Xero from day one. Is it $10 million, $100 million, $200 million or even more? The first person to guess the closest number wins. Pass this on and tell your friends.

Normal competition stuff applies – judge’s decision is final.  No robots. No talking to Xero staff. Competition closes when we put our results out later in the week.

Update: The #xeronumber competition closes in an hour at 8.30amNZT (20/5/2011 – time for you) when we expect our annual results to be released by the NZX (NZ Stock Exchange). Time for those last minute entries now!
