For Immediate Release:
Online accounting software company Xero has announced a partnership with Waypoint, one of Victoria’s leading cloud integrators for small to medium business.
The partnership is a coup for Waypoint and comes on the back of a stellar year of successful Xero implementations by the Melbourne-based company.
Waypoint Director Dan Fairbairn said the company has been a vocal advocate for Xero from the start.
“The huge success of the Xero platform speaks for itself. The organisation has transformed the accounting software space by focusing on usability, accessibility and visibility,” Dan commented.
“Our partnership with Xero will enable us to take our implementation services to the next level. Our customers will be able to leverage our integration expertise with the confidence that we are fully backed by Xero.”
Xero Vertical Account Manager Mark Harris says Waypoint ticked all of the boxes.
“Dan Fairbairn had already been heavily involved with a successful Xero implementation into a multi-site franchise earlier this year and we were impressed with his work on the project.”
Earlier this year the SaaS accounting powerhouse announced its plans to build strategic partnerships with selected cloud integrators to deliver end-to-end implementation and migration services. It was the logical next step for the New Zealand-based company that has taken the small (and increasingly mid-size) business world by storm.
“We were under pressure to provide our customers with a resource to help with implementation so that we could focus on what we do well – build software,” explained Mark from Xero.
“We needed an add-on service focused on implementation, data migration and training, so aligning with successful cloud integrators like Waypoint is ideal. It’s a great solution for everyone – especially our customers.”
Xero works with accountants and bookkeepers that often don’t have the time or expertise to migrate their clients to Xero.
“It’s not what they do,” Mark adds. “But now they have a network of approved cloud integrators to tap into that will provide them with an end-to-end solution.”
