Xero has more than 1,000 connected apps that help small businesses and their advisors succeed. Many of our app partners have been connected with Xero for more than 10 years, and we’re celebrating a handful of those apps every quarter. Read more about our latest four app-versaries below.

We recently celebrated some major milestones for the Xero ecosystem, including launching the new Xero App Store and reaching over 1,000 connected apps in our ecosystem. As we kick off 2022, we’ll continue to shine a light on a collection of apps each quarter from our app partners celebrating their 10 year app-versaries with us. 

Before diving into this quarter’s fantastic four, it’s worth taking a look at some of the latest findings from our Xero Small Business Insights special report – Picking up the pace: Trends in small business technology adoption and use. The report takes a look at the digitalisation and app usage of small businesses that use Xero, and the findings show the vast majority are experiencing the benefits of apps and digital transformation.

Xero has been on quite the journey over the past decade, as our ecosystem community and the innovation on our platform has grown from strength to strength.

Check out these four apps that have worked with Xero for the past 10 years to make lives easier for small businesses, their advisors and communities around the world.

ABUKAI Expenses

Simply take pictures of receipts with ABUKAI, and all the expenses show up in Xero – without having to type. ABUKAI Expenses eliminates the cumbersome work associated with creating expense reports and invoices, including typing data from receipts, categorising expenses and searching exchange rates.

Carry The One

Carry The One allows you to seamlessly import sales from your online store into your Xero account. Supported systems include osCommerce, CRE Loaded, Zen Cart, Magento and Shopify.


iCOS LIVE provides Australian and New Zealand domestic transport operators with real-time track and trace from job bookings through dispatch to proof of delivery. It also provides  electronic signature capture. Job data is pushed to Xero automatically during invoicing.


PayHero by FlexiTime is perfect for Kiwi companies that want stress-free and compliant online payroll. Especially those with part-time and mobile workforces who face unique challenges tracking employee time accurately and calculating the right holiday entitlements for their staff.

We’re extremely proud of the app partners that have joined us on our journey. We’re still on a mission to work with more developers so we can help grow their business and continue to drive innovation. 

Thanks again to everyone who has helped us reach 1,000 apps over the past 10 years. 

You can check out these apps, and more like them, on the Xero App Store.
