Global online accounting software company Xero has made it easier for accounting professionals to convert Quickbook files the company announced in a press release.
"Any small business accountant will tell you that converting accounting platforms can be a nightmare. For years, my clients have felt trapped in their current solutions," Blake Oliver, chief executive officer for Cloudsourced Accounting said in a statement. "With Xero's QuickBooks Conversion, I've freed my clients from the tyranny of these slow and archaic financial systems. Their businesses now move at breakneck speed and by migrating QuickBooks data into Xero's cloud-based accounting software, we can now access and understand their full financial data whenever and wherever."
With the new service, accounting professionals will be able to transfer their data to a more simplified system.
"We created our QuickBooks Conversion Service in response to strong industry demand," Jamie Sutherland, president at Xero United States said in a statement. "With this service, we're removing the last barrier for small businesses and their accounting partners to realize the power of the cloud in building a strong financial foundation. We're thrilled to make this long awaited industry demand a reality and spread the news to small businesses and accounting professionals across the U.S. during our national road show."
As part of its marketing plan, Xero will be promoting the service through a variety of demonstrations across the country. The first is set for Oct. 21 in Baltimore, Md. The company will then visit 20 cities throughout the next month the press release reported.
