Xero: trashy beginnings?

Xero: trashy beginnings?

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure… And one crumpled serviette spelled out the beginning of a $2 billion company!

Xero, now a recognised leader in the field of accountancy software, began life (like all good things) as a dream. The seeds for this dream were coaxed into flower through the figures written on one crumpled serviette – from trash to treasure, Xero was born.

Rod Drury: the dream becomes reality

It was 2005, and Xero founder (and fellow Kiwi) Rod Drury had finished a long day of presentations. Across from him sat CEO of Quest Software, and written on that one crumpled serviette was the figure Quest was willing to pay for Rod’s business, Aftermail. That serviette, that figure, was the springboard Rod needed to launch Xero – and with over 1000 employees and offices in New Zealand, Australia, the US and the UK, that initial growth doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon!
Xero is fast becoming a worldwide phenomenon, with massive growth and a dedicated following among the accountancy and bookkeeping fraternity.
Ontrack Bookkeeping is proud to be a Xero Gold Certified Partner, and will continue to promote and use Xero software in our business.
