ONLINE ACCOUNTING software company Xero is on the hunt for new UK add-on technology partners.
The company, which made its first foray into the accountancy market in 2012, with the acquisition of Max Solutions, said newly appointed strategic partnerships manager, Jon Bellamy will be heading-up the search.
Bellamy, formerly responsible for corporate relationships at rival IRIS Software, will also look to form strategic partnerships with vendors in and around the accounting technology and small business market, including the UK banking community.
"Xero is absolutely committed to putting the latest, best solutions in reach of our expanding user community," said Xero UK managing director Gary Turner (pictured).
"The appointment of Jon, combined with his strong connections in the industry, is key to this on-going strategy."
In June, the IT business partnered with an artificial intelligence provider in an attempt to create a more streamlined accountancy software product.
Xero teamed up with AI technology provider Celaton to offer its inSTREAM product to Xero users. The add-on has been designed to detect and protect firms and businesses from inaccurate and irrelevant data seeping into the organisation.
Love that Xero shares it's open API and brings more sales relationships into the mix of 'sexy accounting software'. Thanks for making the world smaller and friendlier Xero, appreciate the opportunities.
