Xero has another API partner, this time ITLink, a provider of mobile sales force tools specifically;

SalesLink Mobile – a mobile order taking solution

SalesLink Surveys – a mobile survey management tool

Stocklink Mobile – A mobile stocktaking tool

As well as some mobile sales reporting tools that all allow mobile automation of the sales process to occur. It’s interesting to remember that, as yet, Xero doesn’t include inventory functionality, possibly limiting the usefulness of the ability to talk to ITLink products – sure the argument would go that the API would allow only financial data to be ported across to Xero, but given the commonness with which inventory and other changes occur, I’m not sure how many takers they’ll have at the moment.

ITLink’s offerings look good – the list of accounting systems they link to is pretty comprehensive – evidence that they’ve done their homework and are focussed on what their customers need.

Below is a diagram of the modules they produce and how they all work together.
