AI Revolutionizes Xero: Unveiling New Features Enhancing Business Efficiency at Xerocon Sydney

As Seen On

Xerocon Sydney – an annual event that sets a global stage for sharing big tech innovations happening in the accounting sector – took the cover off its latest AI-focused enhancements designed to manipulate and manage business performance indicators. Xero, the prominent cloud-based accounting software platform, is harnessing artificial intelligence to enhance its accounting ecosystem. The company has unveiled its AI-powered features at the Xerocon Sydney gathering, with the bold aim of revolutionizing the way accountants, bookkeepers, and businesses manage operational matters such as cash flow and payroll.

At the heart of Xero’s innovation strategy lie their AI-Powered Features. Dispelling the myth that AI and ML are mere tech jargon, Xero has placed these technologies at the core of its accounting platform, and the real-world benefits are palpable.

One AI-powered feature that stands out is in Xero Analytics Plus – providing short-term cash flow forecasts that now include predictions for recurring invoice and bill payments. Management of future cash flow has always been a challenging task for businesses small and large; Xero’s AI solution provides a clearer view, painting a more representative business trajectory. With added visibility into future invoice and bill payments, businesses can plan and strategize more effectively.

Another noteworthy application of AI is in bank reconciliation. New AI-populated contact lists offer a more streamlined way of onboarding new clients, reducing manual data entry, and accelerating the bank reconciliation process. This enables businesses to focus on other essential tasks, augmenting productivity.

Generative AI experiments hold an essential position in the AI-powered enhancements introduced by Xero. The first of its two experiments is akin to the ChatGPT model. Deployed in Xero Central, it will assist in surfacing more relevant and effective solutions for clients, thus increasing turnaround times in problem resolution.

The second experiment concerns AI as an assistant for Xero Organization Setup. Here, AI helps to guide new users through setting up their organization and providing responses to key queries during the onboarding process. This high level of automation simplifies the often complex task of setting up a new organization, allowing for smoother, faster business setups.

Another exciting addition besides AI this year at Xerocon Sydney was the debut of Planday’s Award Interpretation Tool. Aimed at resolving common issues in the hospitality sector, this tool could significantly reduce the time businesses spend on compliance, freeing them up for other critical operations and customer engagement.

In short, Xero’s latest AI-powered enhancements are not merely bells and whistles but serve a practical and effective role in business operations. The company’s ultimate aim remains to improve the quality of service provided to its customers and their advisors continually. Aiding in the more accurate prediction of cash flows and speeding up tasks such as client onboarding and bank reconciliation are prime examples of this commitment. By harnessing AI in their suite, Xero, showcased at Xerocon Sydney, has showcased an innovative approach that is set to redefine the future of business operations.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
