We know many of our accounting partners are very interested in moving their desktop environment to Microsoft’s Office 365. If that’s you, we suggest you get along to the roadshow Microsoft is running around New Zealand next month that’s specifically for professionals and small businesses.
You’ll see the web tools that combine familiar Microsoft Office productivity applications such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel with the latest Microsoft communication and collaboration technology.
For Xero accounting partners it’s important that you get the right plan and licensing model of Office 365. We’ve determined the E3 plan has the features your practice needs. With this model you’ll be kept up to date with the latest version of Office Professional Plus. This also enables co-authoring, as well as Exchange and SharePoint online, removing the reliance on your server.
Make sure you get in touch with your Xero Account Manager after the roadshow to work through the implementation process and get answers to any questions you may have.
Since the launch of the Modern Practice at #xerocon NZ earlier this year, we’ve had a number of our accounting partners working through a beta to find out how best to deploy Office 365 in an accounting practice. We’ve learned a lot through the experience and partners will get an update shortly.
Once the beta is finished we’ll move into a pilot phase to test the process developed alongside Provoke and Office 365 setup and migration experts CodeBlue. Stay tuned for progress on this – NZ partners will get to see more at #xerocon in Feb next year.
