From Caleb Jones: Thank you Xero!
Due to the responses and votes on their community, Xero has decided to add this feature to their product roadmap.
We're very thankful for all of their work, and the great platform that they produce. We also wanted to thank everyone for their support, and ask that all of our supporters continue to spread the word about Xero, so that they have more customers to build great features for.
Xero is a cloud based accounting program used by small business and startups all over the world. As one of the fastest growing platforms of its kind, Xero is making strides to become the leader in online accounting.
As faithful Xero users, we need the ability to manage all aspects of our business wherever and whenever. This is exactly what Xero promises to do for us, which is precisely the reason we signed up in the first place. We especially love using the mobile app to stay up-to-date and track personal expenses. Unfortunately, in the midst of all these great features and benefits, there is still one key feature missing - business purchases and tracking through the mobile app. For example, if you buy something with a corporate card, issue a purchase order, or recieve an invoice from a supplier, you can't use the mobile app :(
The implications aren't fun either. Currenlty, we have to keep all of our corporate receipts from every trip, business meeting, and office supply run, plus pay $30/month to use a 3rd party service. That equals a lot of hassle and $360/year in extra costs.
The Good News
Xero has had time to make great videos, restructure their mobile app, and raise $150 million dollars. Now you have the time and resources to create the one feature that is missing. The other good news is that the exact feature already exists, except its for personal expenses. All we ask is that you replicate it to works with business expenses. Simple right?
In September of 2012 - over a year ago, this person asked, and multiple people responded echoing the sentiment.
Xero just posted a blog update about their new mobile app -
We're looking for 150 faithful Xero customers to stand with us, one for each of the million dollars Xero just raised. Together we can build a better tomorrow with zero accounting complications.
