Wrapping up Xerocon NZ

Phew, what a day. Feedback’s been rolling in, with accountants and bookkeepers agreeing on one thing: Xerocon NZ was an event to remember.

Partners were really thrilled to hear about:

  • Our acquisition of WorkflowMax
  • Big updates coming up in Xero — like major improvements to Report Packs
  • New ways to run an accounting practice from co-founder Hamish Edwards

I left the Xerocon Live Blog to get beautiful for the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, where we really cut loose with our Accounting, Bookkeeping and Add-on Partners.

Tina Cross getting the party started.
