We’ve kicked off our first roadshow for the year with over 3000 accountants and bookkeepers registered – the biggest roadshow yet for Xero worldwide. The team is visiting 15 venues around Australia during February unveiling our new tool Report Packs, and sharing the latest updates and news from Xero.
At a glance:
- 15 cities in 15 days
- 27 exhibitors (add-on and implementation partners)
- 25 Xero staff on the road
- 3000+ attendees
Each day kicks off with sessions on the Xero Essentials, suitable for accountants and bookkeepers new to Xero and wanting to grow their business and serve their clients better.
For those wanting a deeper dive into conversions, this session will cover the conversion process step-by-step, ideal for those who are setting up clients into Xero.
Xero Australia Managing Director Chris Ridd (or one of our other key staff) takes to the stage after lunch with a partner update. Get the latest on 2012 achievements and an insight into key strategic initiatives for Xero Australia in 2013 and beyond. Don’t miss the first mentions of new campaigns and offers being launched to help you and your customers switch to Xero and get trained up. You also hear about Xero’s new Practice Studio platform offering integrated tools and a seamless experience for any practice, including an announcement of new solution partners, enableHR and Microsoft.
Product Manager Tim Wright (or one of our other key staff) will then take the reins and outline a whole swag of new product features across Xero client accounting, payroll, mobility, practice management, Workpapers etc. This includes the highly anticipated Report Packs, which went live in Australia on Monday. This is a major technology shift that eliminates the duplication, data entry, sync problems and massive cost of moving and sharing files between disparate applications. There is one copy of the data and now accountants and bookkeepers can complete compliance activities in a far more productive way.
Lastly, it wouldn’t be a roadshow without plenty of networking opportunities for attendees. Be sure to visit our exhibitor stands, talk to the Xero team and make some new friends. There’s still time to register so check to see where we’re heading next.
