I am at Xerocon in San Francisco to learn more about what Xero has to offer and to meet some of the folks here and other Xero Partners. The following are some of the exciting things I've seen and heard:
Notes: this will help retail stores and wholesale become able to utilize basic inventory management within Xero.
Suggestions/questions: 'Sales' should be renamed Revenue and 'Purchases' should be renamed Expenses. Would also be great if there was a payment button for multiple invoices on statements.
Note: can email invoices & bills into Xero and drag and drop them to respective xero transactions.
Suggestions/questions: What is the backend? Drobox? Box? Gdocs? Either one would be amazing.
Note: This comes live in 2014. Could have more once I get my hands on it, but seems like this is a solid update.
Suggestions/questions: Would like it sooner but c'est la vie.
Note: Should be awesome. Pricing is more attractive than Intuit Online Payroll. Accounting plus 10 employees for payroll is $70/month. Seems like they are bringing payroll and HR embedded into the program. Expected Nov. 22nd 2013
Suggestions/questions: Needs to be perfect as it is embedded. Would like a full rollout on efiling for all states, but rolling out Fed & CA first and then to other states after that.
Overall, exciting features to look forward to.
