The integration will enable some of Australia’s largest practices to use GreatSoft and Xero more efficiently across all of their clients in the cloud
September 2019, Brisbane – Xero , the global small business platform, today announced a partnership with GreatSoft in Australia, a scalable cloud-based practice management solution for large accounting firms. The partnership will enable leading professional services firms to adopt Xero’s powerful cloud accounting tools and efficiently manage thousands of clients, jobs and staff in GreatSoft.

As an open ecosystem, Xero offers choice to accounting and bookkeeping practices when it comes to practice management solutions. For sole practitioners, Xero Projects allows simple time cost tracking, with optional Trello integration; for medium-sized practices, there’s Xero Practice Manager, and now the largest and most complex enterprises can integrate their practice with GreatSoft.

Once integrated with Xero, accountants will be able to work more efficiently; spending less time entering data in multiple platforms or chasing information from clients and more time delivering high-value advice to clients.

“Together with GreatSoft, we’re giving Australian accounting practices of all shapes, sizes and technology maturity the ability to access to beautiful software that makes them more efficient, more effective and more powerful for their clients. Large and complex accounting firms can now use the tools, services and streamlined workflows that already benefit thousands of Australian accountants and bookkeepers, and small businesses on Xero’s cloud-based platform. Through our connected platform they will have the ability to provide high value services, to help grow their clients’ businesses.” – Trent Innes, Managing Director, Xero Australia and Asia.

GreatSoft, which recently entered the Australian market, is a tried and tested solution used by over 1000 firms across 19 countries, with many of these being big four and top tier firms.

“We’re excited about our strategic partnership with Xero as it addresses the gap that exists in the market for a scalable, integrated solution for growing multi-office, multi-entity, multi-service line firms,” said Brian Armstrong, CEO GreatSoft Australia.

“The integration allows GreatSoft and Xero to sync tax and client changes and gives practices the platform, freedom and flexibility to create a truly integrated cloud practice ecosystem to build a 360° unified view of the client and a single source of truth.”

Xero has been working closely with many large leading firms around the world. The business announced a global expansion of its partnership with PwC earlier this year, enabling local PwC firms around the world to provide quick and easy access to the Xero platform for their clients.
