Xero releases farming blueprint

Xero releases farming blueprint

29 October 2013

Xero has released its Farming Integration Guide, a blueprint that helps rural solution providers connect to Xero and deliver integrated farm management and accounting solutions.  

Xero CEO Rod Drury says this is a great example of technology bringing an industry together. “This guide is the key step towards full integration between farmers, rural accountants, rural suppliers, banks and software providers. The innovation we’re experiencing in the tech sector is being applied directly now to the rural economy, the backbone of the NZ economy.”

“We have a vision for how the farming sector could work and have been able to work with industry leaders to develop a framework that will make life better for all participants. This foundation will see increased investment in technology to improve farm performance.”
Developers who use the Farming Integration Guide get everything they need to integrate with Xero. It has a full process flow so developers know exactly what they need to do, and when.

Two farming solution providers, MyFarm, and Cashmanager RURAL are already involved. MyFarm Director Andrew Watters says “We are excited to have built great software so Xero can do great things for farmers and their advisors. The product is in beta testing and we are looking forward to unveiling it at Xerocon in February.”
Cashmanager RURAL director Brian Eccles says “Our online strategy is all about making the sharing of data a natural part of our applications to ensure farmers and accountants don’t have to enter data twice. The development path Xero has outlined shows great promise for simplifying the process.”

Glenn Morley, Partner at Xero Accounting Partner BDO. says “BDO is pleased to have assisted with the Xero Farming integration guide. Real-time accurate information, with a platform enabling stronger collaboration with our farming clients is key.”

More details and a link to the guide are available on the Xero blog.
