Regular readers will be aware that I follow goings-on over at Xero very closely – although let me point out that I have no affiliation with them at all.
News is just coming through from the other side of the planet (New Zealand and the ONYAs to be precise) that Xero has won three out of the four awards it was nominated for, namely “Most Outstanding Website”, “Best User Experience” and “Best Web Application”. They missed out on “Most Innovative” but, hey, this is accounting software we’re talking about.
Of course, being web-based software, this is the same stuff that we use here in the UK, so these awards are equally relevant this side of the world – although the other potential UK nominees would, in my opinion, put up a stronger challenge.
Well done Xero. Hopefully they have laid down a marker for others to up their game.
