Great for Xero that they’ve picked up one of the "big four". As announced over on the Xero blog Deloitte NZ has signed up as a Xero partner. Deloitte are one of the big boys – they don’t partner on a whim. They’ve also got international scale and presence so the partnership lubricates Xero’s global expansion plans.
Bridget Musker, Associate Director in Deloitte’s Accounting & Advisory practice focused on helping SMEs grow, commented…
For our clients, Xero dovetails brilliantly with our ‘Virtual CFO’ service where our Deloitte team is on call and available to assist businesses on all sorts of strategic, financial or management issues
Which pretty much means that they realise that accountants are traditionally on the back foot and being the first of the big four to partner with Xero gives them a point of difference when compared to the other players.
Well done Xero – I wonder who is next?
