Earlier this week Xero announced that they will be releasing a Payroll offering to the NZ market as well as going live with a similar offering in the UK. You can read more about that here
The Australians and American’s already have a Payroll offering from Xero, so this is welcome news that it’s finally reached the home of Xero – the land of the long white cloud.
New Zealand already has an established add-on offering of Payroll providers. The one that we use regularly use with clients at Alliott NZ is Smart Payroll
So what's the difference?
In August Greg and I went to Xerocon 2014 in Sydney. What did we learn? There are Xero Add-ons for everything these days. If you can think of it, there’s an Add-on for it.
In fact there are so many Add-ons out there that the Xerocon iPhone App had them and their exhibitors listed by category. For example: farming, inventory, invoicing, payroll, property management, share management, point of sale, media, CRM, benchmarking, financial reporting, cash flow, budgeting software, project management, and the list goes on.
Take two retail businesses. Biz One is high volume, low margin and Biz Two is low volume, high margin. Both use Xero and both want better cost management, stock control and sales insight. Time for an add-on, right? Well, not necessarily.
