On its commitment to helping entrepreneurs run their small businesses, Xero launches yet another helpful tool after the recent expansion of its payroll support and enhanced inventory management.
With over half a million subscribers across the globe, Xero announced on 25 August the unveiling of its new Advisor Directory, a platform through which small business owners can access targeted, industry-specific financial guidance.
Here, you can browse Xero-certified accountants who can help you set up on Xero properly and deal with tax, bookkeepers who can keep your accounts up-to-date, and other advisors who can help you run your small business and help you grow. These Xero certified advisors can guide you on the best apps to use for your business and even train with you to become an expert in Xero.
The new Xero Advisor Directory offers a variety of useful new features including:
- Descriptions of typical services that accountants, bookkeepers and financial professionals offer small business clients
- Real-time geographical map pinpointing Xero Advisors; intuitive search filters narrow Xero Advisors by city, suburb or postal code
- Optimized mobile experience that uses visitor geolocation to display nearby Xero Advisors
- A search tool to help business owners find Xero Advisors by name, industry specialty and keywords
- Direct click-to-contact functionality lets business owners connect with Xero Advisors
The directory also allows financial advisors to customise their own page to highlight their areas of focus and expertise for potential SME clients. The platform then lets the companies connect with these Xero Advisors straight away.
“Choosing an accountant is like choosing a new business partner,” said Xero’s Global Vice President of Education and Head of Accounting in the USA, Amy Vetter. “The right accountant will become a trusted colleague, who offers advice and guidance as a small business grows. Xero’s new Advisory Directory will help small businesses all over the world find an accountant who’ll be able to offer valuable business advice using real-time data, all from within Xero, no matter where they are located.”
With Xero Advisor Directory, small business owners can reach Xero-certified advisors to fulfill their needs in corporate planning, loan applications, payroll, tax auditing and more.
