XEROCON 2015 in Denver: Everything you want and need to know!

Posted by Carol-Ann Brouwer at Thursday, July 23, 2015

You may have heard of Comic-Con, the huge comic book convention that draws thousands of fans, or any of the other massive fan conventions for everything ranging from science fiction to manga or anime. But did you know there’s one for accountants?

With a slightly more targeted fanbase, XERO draws its own huge audience to XEROCON -- “the world's most beautiful and innovative  accounting conference for leaders in cloud accounting”.

This year’s XEROCON saw more than 650 cloud accounting professionals meet in beautiful Denver, Colorado for two intensive days of learning, networking, and fun at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The beautiful surroundings and exceptional venue were overshadowed only by the incredible workshops, announcements, and previews. 

And while convention participants didn’t dress in space-age attire like Star Trek fans do for Comic-Con, the enthusiasm at XEROCON for the latest news about Xero cloud-based accounting solutions easily equaled that of any Dr. Who or Marvel Comic fans. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Xero is the world’s most popular cloud-based accounting software and the momentum continues! There are now over 500,000 subscribers around the globe using its platform. If you haven’t already, now is the right time to make the switch to Xero.

  • Work with an iOS platform? Xero is working with Apple on fantastic new solutions for small businesses who use Xero on iPhone® and iPad®.

  • More Apple news included Xero for Apple Watch and push notifications for bank feeds to iPad, iPhone, or Apple Watch. That’s not all! There’s a handy new iOS app called Xero Me, which is designed to help employees access details about their pay slips or request time off.

  • If your small business is retail-focused, stay tuned. Xero is partnering with Vend and Deputy to enhance mobility via iOS devices.

  • Xero announced several new product capabilities, including a new dashboard for business performance that is automated and easily customized, Google Gmail integration for accounting, new payroll product features, billable expenses (useful for small businesses to handle managing and billing for expenses incurred), streamlined management and year-end reporting via a great new powerful practice reporting engine.

Curious to learn how these new Xero features can work for your small business? Contact Accounting Anywhere for a no obligation consultation or to find out more about Accounting Anywhere’s Xero training, conversion, or set-up services
