Make some powerful new connections with XU Connect

The power of the XU App

Part 2 of 4

Ever since we announced we’re building an app for Xero users, feedback surrounding the XU app has been fantastic, and we’re thrilled to see the enthusiasm of hundreds of Xero years worldwide.

We’ve been listening to accountants and business owners and using your feedback to plan for the future of the XU app, and make sure that we can provide you with the best experience, whilst staying true and familiar to Xero and it’s community that’s growing on a daily basis!

So we’ve told you the power of XU Local in connecting you with the best business offers in your area, but if you want to take that one step further and begin making powerful new connections, then XU Connect will help you do just that!

What does XU Connect do?

Networking can often be a difficult task, and in most cases you’re confined to your local area, or even a room full of fellow business owners. And even though you’re getting results, you’re left wondering if you could take that one step further.

Now you’ll be able to do exactly that with XU Connect! This part of the app will allow you to remove the restrictions of physical networking and make your powerful connections online. With this you’ll be able to ground yourself firmly in the huge and global Xero community and connect with fellow Xero users to find potential new clients for your business.

If you’re worried about virtual networking removing the personal element, then fear not. XU connect will allow users to find and network with you on a much deeper level. Rather than just seeing a name and company, they’ll be able to see who you are, what you stand for and why you are in business. This means the emphasis is taken from your company to being about you and what you represent, creating more meaning for those who are looking at networking with you and potentially doing business with you.

But it doesn’t stop there! XU Connect will also be perfect for those who are recruiting, as the app will also allow you to feature information on job opportunities. For example, accountancy firms will be able to register themselves with statuses such as “We are looking for…”. This gives you the opportunity to find your perfect candidates within the Xero community, as well as finding something equally, if not more passionate about Xero and all it has to offer to your audience.

Where can I find out more?

The features don’t end with XU Connect! With four apps rolled into one, we’re excited to showcase all the app has to offer over the coming weeks.

In the meantime, you can also register your interest in the app and email us with any questions you might have about it’s features and what it can do for you and your business. We can’t wait to see how the app can benefit both small business owners and accountants and bookkeepers so stay tuned for more updates!
