Last month David Urry, our co-founder and Chief Experience Officer, went along to the Xero Roadshow 2018 here in Australia. “The Xero Roadshow gives us such a useful update on the latest in accounting innovation,” said David. “And as a Xero partner, this was a good opportunity for IntegraPay to catch up with the Xero team and many of our accounting and bookkeeping clients.”

“This year’s theme was digital efficiencies, a topic close to our heart here at IntegraPay. We were delighted that so much time was spent covering the benefits of payment services, which are helping businesses get paid faster than ever.”

IntegraPay’s payment add-on for Xero is a good example of how businesses are benefiting from digital efficiencies. We’re the only Xero payment add-on in Australia to cover the three major payment options: credit and debit card, BPAY and bank debit. And our automated bank reconciliation is the fastest available, just one click to reconcile multiple payments. These are significant efficiency gains for a business.

This was Xero’s largest ever roadshow, and David attended the Brisbane and Melbourne events. With over 3,000 people at each show, there’s clearly a growing demand for cloud accounting.

The Xero team gave presentations into its latest solutions for reporting, tax, client services, remote working, project management, and financial services.

David’s highlight was Xero’s ‘Financial Web’ presentation. He said: “It’s all about saving time. Digital efficiencies in payments are really helping businesses improve their operations and grow.”

“Xero talked us through its research, which shows that businesses are getting paid seven days faster with a payment service attached to Xero. That’s huge time-saving, and it’s exactly what our clients are experiencing with IntegraPay’s payment add-on for Xero – its speeding up payment collection process, saving businesses time and money on administration, and improving their cashflow.”

These are exciting times in accounting technology. David and the IntegraPay team are already looking forward to next year’s roadshow.
