Xero and ZenPayroll Announce Partnership to Expand Cloud Capabilities 
Small Businesses Reap Benefits From Real-Time Access to Finances and
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/18/13 --   Xero, the global
leader in online accounting software, and ZenPayroll, a leading
provider of online payroll software, have come together to offer
small businesses an easy and collaborative way to oversee their
payroll and finances. Now, small businesses can integrate ZenPayroll
data directly with Xero, allowing more control over money management
and employee payroll.  
In greater numbers, small businesses are realizing the value of
managing their finances in the cloud. In fact, a recent Zogby survey
of small business accountants found that 72 percent said having a
real-time view into their client's financials would allow them to
provide better financial advice. By partnering together, Xero and
ZenPayroll continue their commitment to providing small business
owners a complete end-to-end IT solution -- and access to their
finances anytime, anywhere, on any device. Real-time access means
smarter financial decisions and a better bottom line.  
"Small Business owners do it all -- CEO, HR manager, IT support --
concurrently tracking money coming in and money going out," said
Jamie Sutherland Xero President of U.S. Operations. "Accounting and
payroll go hand-in-hand, which is why finding the right partners is
so important. In ZenPayroll, we found a company that truly saw the
value of a simple, intuitive, and scalable financial solution." 
With ZenPayroll, customers no longer have to manually enter their
payroll data, saving them time and eliminating the possibility of
human error. Accountants are able to manage payroll for dozens of
companies from a free, easy to use centralized dashboard and the
automated, paperless functionality of Xero and ZenPayroll make it
easy for small businesses to stay in compliance with government
regulations and taxes. 
"Our mission at ZenPayroll is to bring the power of modern software
to the payroll industry, and offer a much simpler, faster and easier
to use product than has ever existed before. When we met Xero, it was
clear to us that they shared this philosophy. With this partnership,
small business owners and their advisors can now seamlessly manage
payroll and accounting in the cloud," said Joshua Reeves, CEO of
ZenPayroll. "By using Xero plus ZenPayroll, businesses can save time
and money, a winning combination." 
Customer Testimonial
 "We love both ZenPayroll and Xero for their
flexibility and friendliness," said Jared Hansen, CEO at Breezy.
"We've been waiting for this integration and are excited to benefit
from it. No more manual payroll entry, no more exporting & importing
of data, and no more manual reconciliation. Great work!" 
About the Survey
 Zogby Analytics was commissioned by Xero Limited to
conduct an online survey of 400 accountants in the U.S. The survey
was conducted from February 14 through February 21, 2013. Based on a
confidence interval of 95 percent, the margin of error for 400 is +/-
5.0 percentage points. This means that all other things being equal,
the identical survey repeated will have results within the margin of
error 95 times out of 100.
