ACCOUNTING SOFTWARE vendor Xero has confirmed a partnership with Google which sees its platforms integrate Google’s Gmail and Google Apps for Work offerings.
Xero’s Gmail integration pushes e-mail into the accounting workflow, providing businesses with information about their relationships with their contacts without leaving Xero. Tighter integration with Google Apps for Work enables businesses to export content from Xero to Google’s spreadsheet offering Sheets to collaborate with customers, suppliers and financial advisers.
The integration is immediately available to Xero customers worldwide.
“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.”
