Farming in the Cloud debuts at Fieldays 2014

We debuted our new Farming in the Cloud online accounting and farm management solution with key farming solution partner Figured, at Fieldays 2014 in Mystery Creek. We’re already halfway through our first foray into the biggest event on the New Zealand rural calendar, and although we’ve been travelling around the country talking with the rural sector for a while now, we’ve been overwhelmed at the interest and engagement from the farming community.

Feedback from New Zealand farmers and rural businesses who serve the farming industry has been fantastic, and there is genuine excitement at the end-to-end cloud eco-system that we’ve created with our partners for the rural community, and the impact that the Rural Broadband Initiative will have for rural businesses around the country.

Farming in the Cloud stall at Fieldays 2014 We’re loud and proud at Fieldays and to top it all off, Xero last night won the award for best premiere feature site. A fantastic achievement from the team  especially with some trying weather conditions during set up. Looking forward to the next two days!

A few of the highlights have included: Prime Minister John Key takes Farming in the Cloud online tour with Ben Richmond, Xero Rural Strategy Lead, during his walkabout at Fieldays 2014 today.
