What is the next gen practice value map?

The value map is our way of sharing the problems we're trying to solve for accountants and bookkeepers. It's not a list of specific features - it shows you the 'what' that we're working on rather than 'how' we'll solve it. And this isn’t everything – keep checking back since we’ll add more when it’s ready to share. Please note that this value map is only for practice tools – not general Xero tools.
