Payroll Announcement from Xero, should I consider changing my Payroll provider

Written by Anthony McIlroy on February 27th, 2015.      0 comments

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?

 

A trip to Xerocon Sydney: Business is changing

Written by Vanessa Williams on September 22nd, 2014.      0 comments

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.
 

To Add-on or not to Add-on? That is the question.

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.
