Business Buddy Partners With Xero And SMEs

Xero wanted to do better than that and came up with a genius solution to feed bank statements directly into clients’ Xero cloud-based accounts.
Aug. 18, 2014 - PRLog -- It is by now a well-known fact that small businesses and medium enterprises (SMEs) such as plumbers, early childhood centres, restaurateurs, hairdressers and many more contribute 38.6 per cent to New Zealand’s GDP, which is worth about $50 billion per annum to New Zealand. The experienced and professional team at Astill Hawke & Associates chartered accountants know that SMEs have been transforming the way they manage their paperwork with one of the smartest innovations to be developed in New Zealand in recent years.

Kiwi innovators, Xero, have developed a technology that has made easy-to-use accounting software readily available to small businesses all over the country, at the same time coming in a very affordable package. Xero’s very simple system allows businesses to concentrate on what they do best, such as installing future-proof wiring in stunning homes, serving the finest Kiwi cuisine or caring for our youngest generation, without having to stress over the accounts.

When Xero was first developed, their IT experts went to the coalface and watched what small business owners did in their day. They discovered SMEs went to their bank website before any other business site, to check who had paid outstanding accounts, and the biggest hassle for small businesses turned out to be tackling the accounts retrospectively during weekends.

Xero wanted to do better than that and came up with a genius solution to feed bank statements directly into clients’ Xero cloud-based accounts   []. When Xero users check if someone has paid up, they can also do the bookkeeping work with a few clicks of their mouse. Xero’s clever idea is continuously evolving with an ever-increasing number of cloud-based apps and software designed to meet the needs of SMEs and give them online realtime reporting. With the cloud it is much easier for SMEs to look bigger globally really quickly, and if New Zealanders want better schools and hospitals, businesses need to seriously think about exporting.

Astill Hawke & Associates’ Director, Kirsten Hawke, says her team loves Xero’s Kiwimade technology because it makes a tangible difference to New Zealand businesses. “Exporting software development brainpower and bringing foreign earnings into New Zealand proves anything is possible in the current information tech era,” says Kirsten.
