Xero launches integration blueprint for rural solution providers

Farming Integration Guide intended to unify disconnect in traditional software

Online accounting software vendor, Xero, has released a Farming Integration Guide which provides a blueprint to assist rural solution providers to connect to Xero and deliver management and accounting solutions.

According to Xero chief executive officer (CEO), Rod Drury, the blueprint is a key step toward the full integration between farmers, rural accountants, rural suppliers, banks, and software providers as it eliminates the disconnect among traditional software.

In its blog post, Xero claims it is solving the problem of disconnected software by helping farm solution providers use its API to connect the farm management side of their business to accounting in Xero. It demonstrates its concept via the image pictured above.

“We have a vision for how the farming sector could work and have been able to work with industry leaders to develop a framework that will make life better for all participants,” Drury said. “This foundation will see increased investment in technology to improve farm performance.

Developers which deploy the Farming Integration Guide receive the necessary resources to integrate with the vendor.

Two farming solutions providers, MyFarm and Cashmanager Rural, have already deployed the solution.

The latter’s director, Brian Eccles, said, “Our online strategy is all about making the sharing of data a natural part of our applications to ensure farmers and accountants do not have to enter data twice. The development path Xero has outlined shows great promise for simplifying the process.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
