Fair suck of the sav Marge, and will ya throw another snarler on the barbie and grab me an xxxx out of the esky (sorry – just practicing for when New Zealand becomes another state of our Western neighbour).
Cool to hear that Xero have fully launched their Australian offering. Fact is that Australia is a huge market (compared to New Zealand) yet still close enough to here for their to be some similarities in the way business is done – to that end Australia, in my mind, will be a key test of Xero’s market entry strategies. It was also cool to be alerted (thanks Dan) to the fact that Diversity is being quoted on that most illustrious of sites, Computerworld – just remember, you saw it here first (by several months!)
Of course I’m looking forward to seeing them go head-to-head with Saasu – I kind of feel that they’re both distinct products with different target markets – Saasu suits a larger operation more in need of an ERP lite offering, while Xero I see as being more of a step up from the "excel or a cashbook" crowd.
Either way it’ll be fun to watch. And on another note look what came up when I did a Google search for Xero – it seems Netsuite will clutch at any straw for business!
