Latest Technology Updates from Xerocon

13th February 2015

This week Carol and I attended the hugely anticipated Xerocon in London it’s the UK’s biggest fintech conference with over 800 attendees.

We arrived at Battersea Evolution in style in a suitably Xero Branded Taxi


The two days were amazing, it felt at times like our brains would explode with information overload. There were updates from Xero, along with speeches from some fabulous keynote speakers including Baroness Karren Brady.

The conference was all about empowering small business for growth and we wanted to share with you some of the latest updates that are coming to the Xero software as well as a bit about some of the add-ons from the ecosystem. All things designed to help business owners get control of their finances and save time.
