Accountants: this is a great place for your clients to network with other Xero users!
The big incumbent accounting software vendor in the UK is Sage. Since the early nineties they have had the small business market to themselves almost.
Xero arrived in the UK in 2008 and has slowly gone about dismantling Sage's dominant position, aided and abetted by other cloud vendors like FreeAgent and KashFlow.
In the past 12 months Xero has really gained traction and is now seeing the "hockey-stick" growth kicking-in. They clearly have the big old-timer rattled and Sage is resorting to ever more desperate tactics - like camping out on Xero Bing searches.
Maybe you're a Xero Partner accountant with lots of clients you want to move over from their tired, old desktop software?
In either case, there is lots of help out there - here's a quick guide on what's available:
UK Sage and UK QuickBooks - Movemybooks
US QuickBooks - MMC Convert
AUS/NZ MYOB - Click2Convert, Livemigrate, XpressConvert (some also handle US QuickBooks )
All of these services can copy your contact information, chart of accounts and conversion balances. Most will also convert historical transactions for you too.
You could try to handle the process yourself but why would you, given that there are great, quick and low cost services like these available?
