Xerocon 2015 turned Melbourne blue. The Xerocon machine made it’s way into Melbourne with the two-day conference concluding last Friday. The Calxa team was there amongst the 1500 attendees, and it was great to catch up with existing partners and users, as well as meeting a whole bunch of new people that came along to see what we do. We were blown away by the level of enquiries and positive comments that we received from people that stopped by.


Calxa part of Xero Add-On Ecosystem

With around 440 Add-on Partners now operating in the Xero eco-system, it can be a bit overwhelming for people to decide which Add-on solution (or solutions) is going to best suit their needs. With this in mind, and given the overwhelming response that we received, we have commenced a series of weekly webinars.

They will focus on giving people the best opportunity of understanding how Calxa works with Xero, and to get people up and running in the shortest time possible. Book a demo at a time that suits you. The session is designed to give attendees an overview of Calxa’s functionality, when combined with Xero. Or, join our Calxa Basics webinars throughout the week which will give you the steps to implement Calxa within their practice environment immediately.


Xerocon 2015 Announcements

Xerocon 2015 was a great platform for some exciting announcements. Naturally, the focus was on what is coming in the future. It included collaborations and new partnerships formed with other global technology companies such as Dropbox and Adobe. Changes to report packs in Xero are also in the wind, as well as improved search functionality. The integrated tax reporting and increased automation caught some of our partners attentions, with Lucinda Coble from Cutcher and Neale nominating that as one of her highlights.

Whilst some of our new acquaintances, such as Amanda Nielsen from Macquarie Partners Central Coast thought the presentation from David Koch on Going for Growth in the small business sector was a definite highlight.


All in all, it was an intense couple of days for all who attended, with many opportunities on the horizon. The challenge now is to make it all happen and remain sustainable in a changing environment.
