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.

There is simply no more to say other than Xero is the way of the bookkeeping/accounting future. The Road show was just another example of what this wonderful company/team do on a daily basis. The amount of enthusiasm and excitement made the room buzz and you couldn’t help but walk away being excited about getting in and trying it out.
Love Xero!

Another great achievement from Team Xero in the recent roadshow in Melbourne. Plenty of enthusiasm and information about what is happening with Xero. The Report Packs addition is another example of the goodness which is going to help advisors provide more value to their clients. The incorporation of the add on partners was a great addition as it allowed me to find out more about their solutions and how they can add value to my clients.

Well done Xero!!

Congratulations Xero, the roadshow in Melbourne was just amazing!!

I loved meeting so many of your add on partners. I made a few very strategic partnerships that can really benefit my clients and I’m really excited to be implementing one new add-on this week! Perfect timing!

I’m also SUPER excited about report packs. It means it’s going to be much easier for me to give even more (and better) information to my clients and that’s just awesome.

But, of course the thing that I truly truly LOVED about the roadshow (and Xero in general) is that you guys really support the bookkeepers. I know 2013 is going to be awesome, and that’s because I’m on board with the best accounting program out there.

Awesome Xero Roadshow in Melbourne. Enjoyed every minute of it.
It’s always great to have the opportunity to meet the add on partners and see how we can expand our services to the benefit of our clients.
Watching what Xero has in store for us over the next 12 months just blows my mind away. Very excited for the coming year. Just more proof of Xero’s commitment to the bookkeeping/accounting industry.
Well done to the Xero team. Love your support.
