Notifications name of the game for Xero

By

Accounting software provider Xero has launched Notification features on its accounting platform which it says are aimed at keeping small business owners alerted to information important to their companies, including advice on improving business.

Xero chairman Rod Drury says the Notifications feature puts Xero users more in control of their business through timely and relevant information and reminders inside the Xero app on any device.

Xero says the first release will provide notification of new features and education content through a new drop-down panel, and Notifications will soon allow Xero users and their advisors to set customised alerts for business critical information – such as when bank balances reach a limit or invoices reach due dates.

Drury listed key aspects of the release as including:


•    Use of rich content, images and videos. In addition to providing text-based notifications, imagery and video will deliver fun and interactive learning experiences

•    Beautiful design. Providing notifications that are easy to understand and use

•    Multiple notification types. This initial release provides notifications through a drop-down panel. Over time we will provide additional types of notifications, including notifications that appear on-screen without interrupting a user’s workflow. These are ideal for notifying a user in real-time as events occur

“We continue to deliver a wave of innovations that save entrepreneurs time and money,” Drury said.

“At first, Xero Notifications will keep our customers across hot new features in what is for many their primary business application. Soon, that same familiar interface will enable them to gain critical business alerts and communications from their advisors as we deliver Big Data for Small Business.”

Xero chief product officer Angus Norton said Notifications was a “key part of the underlying platform that will further unify all our offerings, including Xero, our Practice Studio offerings for accounting professionals, and the broader ecosystem.

“This is just the beginning as we add even more intelligence and insight to the information Xero provides as the complete platform for small businesses growth.”

Norton said Notifications is now available at no additional cost as part of Xero’s small business accounting solution, with prices starting from $25 per month.
