The global small business platform, Xero has announced major new technology features and connections that make the world’s leading ecosystem for small businesses even stronger. Get ready to see a single sign-on, advisor-powered app recommendations and new bank feed connections.

Single Sign-On

Signing into business apps with Apple or Google accounts will be easier with a single sign-on. Easy and secure, not only can users build on the Xero platform without all the hassle of remembering passwords, but they can also integrate Xero with other third-part apps. All you need is one password to access hundreds of possibilities. Nick Houldsworth, Executive General Manager of Ecosystem, Xero, said

 Login credentials are one of the biggest complaints (…) Single Sign-On removes our biggest barrier to usage.”

Advisor-powered app recommendations

Now providing over 800+ certified apps, your range of choice has been significantly increased. Accompanied by a customised App Marketplace, users can search for the services, tools and apps that their business requires; all conveniently found in one place.

Just as Netflix provides a tailored entertainment experience, advisors can now personalise the App Marketplace for every client, hand-picking the right apps for them,” Nick Houldsworth said.

New bank feed connections

Having connected with Waddle, a leading Australian fintech, near real-time views of users’ working capital account transactions can be accessed from within Xero. And what’s more, businesses can borrow against their receivables to help fund their operations.
