Vend and Xero forge global partnership

Vend and Xero Retailers

Vend and Xero first integrated in 2010 and already share thousands of customers worldwide. Under the agreement, both companies will pursue a range of product updates and joint marketing activities, to deliver the most advanced end-to-end solution for small business retailers.

The collaboration sees Vend and Xero formally unite under joint business and product development goals in key international markets for the first time.

“Some 30 per cent of Vend customers in NZ and Australia already connect to Xero, and we want to accelerate this growth in other markets too, such as the UK and USA,” says Alex Fala, CEO, Vend, in a statement.

“We’ve been working hard with Xero to develop a truly innovative offering for retailers, one that makes it easy to take advantage of the benefits of moving business operations into the cloud.”

“We don’t think of software as creating a solution but as an ecosystem that makes everyone’s business better,” says Rod Drury, CEO, Xero.

“Partnering with Vend helps us deliver on that vision. Integrated cloud apps are the future for businesses and with cloud accelerating globally, it’s an exciting time in the industry.”

Vend provides point-of-sale, inventory and customer management for retail, while Xero is in accounting and payroll software.
