UPDATED with 2nd ASB video below.
ASB is New Zealand’s most tech savvy bank. ASB were the first bank in the world to support ‘automagic’ bank feeds into Xero. Their leadership has transformed accounting software globally, with bank feeds now an expected feature in all small business accounting software.
ASB has watched us grow and been very supportive as we achieved scale. Today ASB announced a Technology Innovation Alliance with Xero.
Under the partnership ASB has allocated significant internal funding to develop new features that will make the connection between banking and accounting more seamless. Together we believe we will demonstrate the next wave of integrated banking services. As the partnership progresses we’ll see a number of marketing initiatives that will increase end user awareness to benefit the entire Xero ecosystem.

UPDATE: ASB have blogged about the partnership and released this video from ASB Executive General Manger Commercial, Steve Jurkovich:
