Through this partnership we’ll work with Allinial Global at a local and global level to help member firms embrace the benefits of the Xero platform, and manage changes and challenges happening in the industry.”

“We’re excited to enter this next phase of partnership with Allinial Global in a time where digital transformation is crucial. Some Allinial Global firms around the world, including EisnerAmper in the US and Bentleys in Australia and New Zealand, are already experiencing the benefits of using Xero to drive efficiencies and meet their clients’ changing expectations. We hope to springboard off this progress and help more firms leverage the Xero platform to deliver value to their clients,” says David Bell, Executive General Manager Partner Sales, Xero.

Community is a pillar of both organisations, and Allinial Global fosters communities through its internal platform, AG Connect, where members are able to connect based on interest areas, ask questions and share learnings. Allinial Global will look to create a Xero ‘community’ to make it easy for members to access information and resources about Xero, and share their experiences to help others understand more about the Xero platform.
