Happy anniversary Xero!
On the 10th February 2011 WMT became a Xero partner. This week, as our team enjoyed Xero’s annual Xerocon London conference, we were delighted to be celebrating 5 years of Xero and took some time to reflect on what has changed since we first introduced our clients to Xero’s ‘beautiful accounting software’.
For our clients, Xero offers the perfect balance of simplicity and power to manage all their accounts online. Cloud based software means that both WMT and our clients have access to real-time information, from anywhere with an internet connection.
Time is precious, Xero helps reduce the time spent working on accounts, freeing up our clients time to invest in their business.
Then and now, the stats
The numbers speak for themselves when it comes to Xero’s increasing popularity over the last 5 years. Since 2011 Xero has seen an incredible rate of growth from 27,000 customers to over 600,000 worldwide, with over 100,000 of those based in the UK. A growth in custom has of course meant a growth in the Xero team, going from 100 staff in 2011 to an over 1,300 strong team today, supporting clients all over the world.
Xero’s ‘add-on’ applications mean that our clients can tailor their software so it is just right for their business. Back in 2011 there were 90 add-on applications, today there are more than 450 add-ons, covering everything from workflow management to expense reporting, to simplify and streamline every aspect of financial management.
What’s next for WMT and Xero?
Xero’s constant evolution and ability to grow and adapt to ever changing markets is what has made it the UK’s leading cloud accounting software. We are looking forward to our 6th year as a Xero partner, but for now we’ll enjoy celebrating a very happy 5thanniversary with Xero.
