Xero announces deeper integration with Google
Xero is partnering with Google to make it even easier for businesses to keep on top of their customer relationships by integrating with Google’s Gmail platform and Google Apps for Work.
Xero’s Gmail integration takes email out of the inbox and into the accounting workflow, giving small businesses even more information about their relationships with their contacts without leaving Xero. Tighter integration with Google Apps for Work enables small businesses to export content seamlessly from Xero to Google Sheets to collaborate with customers, suppliers and financial advisors.
“Our global relationship with Google bolsters Xero as a real-time business platform for business owners,” said James Maiocco General Manager at Xero. “Our integrations provide a smarter and simpler way to manage the daily workflows associated with all aspects of their business operation.”
Available immediately for 600,000+ Xero users around the world, the Gmail integration along with the redesigned contacts page in Xero helps small business owners, accountants, and bookkeepers save time, get actionable insights, and better manage their relationships with suppliers and customers.
“Google is encouraged to see a deeper Xero integration with Gmail and Google Apps for Work to help small businesses streamline their workflow and deliver a beautiful user experience,” said Rahul Sood, General Manager for Google Apps for Work at Google. “Businesses have come to expect simple, seamless processes and enterprise-grade security from all their cloud applications. Google and Xero can deliver this together to help small businesses focus on what they do best.”
The latest updates build on a range of established integrations between Xero and Google's services. They include the ability to:
Xero also supports Xero for Android used by Xero’s mobile small business owners and accounting providers globally, enabling them to create and send invoices, add receipts, and create expense claims anytime, anywhere. Xero for Android integrates with Google Maps in case users need to visit a client or send them an invoice. Xero is making it easier for small businesses to invoice their customers and capture receipts, speeding up the process for them to get paid faster.
