New Zealand-born Xero is a cloud-based accounting software platform for small and medium-sized businesses.

Sold as a software as a service (SaaS), Xero now has 1.4 million subscribers in over 180 countries and a thriving ecosystem seamlessly integrating with 700+ apps.

Xero’s commitment to Canada got a boost last year when they acquired Toronto-based document management startup Hubdoc for $100 million. Hubdoc’s service automatically fetches financial data from over 700 services, including utilities, telecom providers, banks and online vendors.

Xero is hosting a series of events across Canada to help accountants and bookkeepers understand how the Xero platform works, learn about specific opportunities and obstacles facing small businesses as well as explore ways to boost their practice by incorporating the latest technology.

The Xero Roadshow is coming to Vancouver on Wednesday, October 16th at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver from 8:00am to 1:00pm.

Tickets are free and will provide an opportunity to learn more about Xero’s vision for the future of the accounting industry in Canada.
