After attending another Xero Roadshow I attended with interest the session on Exploring the Ecosystem. The session gave the audience a taste of four ecosystem partners:
With 500 ecosystem partners currently available within the Xero ecosystem, Xero clients are spoilt for choice in terms of the business solutions, which can integrate with Xero.
As advisors in Xero, accountants and bookkeepers receive some education around the ecosystem through attending roadshows and Xerocon as well as online tools like the Add-On Marketplace on Xero.com. However given the range of different clients which an accounting and bookkeeping practice can service is it possible to understand the best business solution for each client.
Some of the larger accounting and bookkeeping practices have dedicated resources, which are focused on providing a specialist service to the practice around the best ecosystem solution for each client.
An alternative is to engage a Xero Cloud Integrator to consult with your clients around the best solution for their business. The Xero Cloud Integrator are certified professionals who specialise in particular industries and the solutions which cover these industries. The Xero Cloud Integrator becomes a vital part of your team and allows you to focus on your core accounting, bookkeeping and advisory services whilst still providing a value added service to your clients.
The Cloud Integrators are listed on the Xero Advisor Directory and I have included a link to this page below:
As a Xero cloud integrator, I really enjoy working with accountants and bookkeepers and helping their clients to select and setup the best business solution for their business. If you are looking for a cloud integration partner for your practice I would love to have a chat.
