Xero and Other Cloud Apps

This week at Xerocon London, Rod Drury, CEO of Xero, gave an interview in which he talks about how the "ecosystem" of Xero add-ons is helping local software companies go global.

Rod singles out Chaser, Receipt Bank, Crunch Boards, and Float as examples of Brittish Xero add-ons that are now serving businesses all over the world as a result of being part of the ecosystem. Pretty neat!

Rod also goes on give us a glimpse of the big picture — what's next for Xero in the next five years.

Now that the Xero team has built out "basic" accounting software functions such as credit notes, purchase orders, and search, they can begin to build more advanced tools that leverage the massive database of transactional data to provide insights to Xero users with advanced analytical tools. 

Should be a very exciting next 5 to 10 years!
