We can’t wait for Xero Roadshow Canada to return this October. There is no better way to connect with cloud accounting leaders from across the country, and share updates to our platform and outlook for Canada in 2019 and beyond. There’s many reasons to attend from learning about the product roadmap, our strategy in Canada, and gaining first-hand industry insights.
We wanted to preview some of the takeaways you’ll bring back to your practice and hope these will inspire you to join us at Xero Roadshow Canada.
Become a master of Xero’s ecosystem
As a platform business, we’re adding to the Xero ecosystem every day to connect millions of small businesses and their advisors to the best solutions in the world. At roadshows, you’ll get to hear from companies like Stripe and Hubdoc and see first-hand the value they bring when connected to the Xero platform.
For instance, Hubdoc’s auto-fetching technology captures data and creates code that helps your clients get paid faster and pay bills faster. We’ll also take you through a deeper partnership between Xero and Stripe that we announced at Xerocon San Diego earlier this year. This integration adds functionality to our existing payment service offering and provides a new Stripe bank reconciliation feed. With the right tools in place, the opportunities are endless for your firm, so join us roadshows to learn how to make the most of Xero’s app ecosystem!
Enjoy a detailed look at our practice workflow
It’s no secret that running a small business is hard. Xero’s recent “Small Business Fintech Outlook Report” found 60% of SMBs in Canada had financial challenges in the last 5 years and 30% of them in the last 12 months. The top financial challenges faced include getting paid on time and cash flow difficulties, so the greatest value we can bring to small businesses is helping them address these issues.
At roadshows, you’ll learn how to advise clients and improve workflows to help with payments and cash flow using Xero and integrated apps including:
- CIBC direct bank feed: provides business owners with a real-time view of their cash flow so they can better manage daily bank transactions and have clearer insight into their financial position.
- NTR & Review report templates: help you create year-end reports using a single template, built just for Canadian accountants and bookkeepers.
- GIFI mapping: map your client’s chart of accounts to GIFI codes and export directly out of Xero, streamlining your end-of-year workflow and reducing the need for third party apps.
Be the first to know about upcoming product releases
Xero is committed to Canada, and the investments we’re making in the people and technology in the coming year support this. We’re very excited to be able to share upcoming product announcements that are specific to this market, like GST and HST reporting. As we share our product updates with you, we encourage you to share feedback with your account manager and local Xero team. Whether you have questions, a problem you’re trying to solve at your firm, or other products or features you’d like to see in the future, roadshows allow everyone to have productive conversations.
