Green accountant, blue client
Phew, what a fun few days. The first part of our roadshow finished this morning with a great audience in Greenlane. Next up is Dunedin on the 8th. We’ll get through the other centers early in February. Stay tuned for details.
Here’s Mike at the Xero offices in Auckland last night …
And me mid flight in Greenlane this morning.
We’ve enjoyed being able to get out there and show our accounting partners some of the the new stuff we’re working on. Our partnership with Acclipse is very exciting. I think many people were surprised to the extent of the Acclipse/Xero partnership. Xero provides the practice ledger under Acclipse and we are collaborating on design ideas so that Xero and Acclipse Practice Management work seamlessly together with a similar interface.
Here is a screenshot of Acclipse (rear), with Xero as the Practice Ledger.
One of the emerging UI standards we are evolving with Acclipse is: when you are working on the Accountants side (managing jobs, staff resourcing, work in progress etc) you are in green. When you’re working on your Clients data, you are blue. Not sure if will catch on as much as “debits by the window”, but we’ll see.
