3. AI and machine learning: no more pesky admin tasks
Another trend that we can confidently extrapolate into 2020 is the continuing growth of machine learning and AI.
These technologies are ushered in behind the scenes, and they already power many Xero products you use every day, including data capture tools such as Hubdoc.
With Hubdoc, we’re on a mission to automate pesky administrative tasks so you can spend more time running your practice.
Using machine learning and AI, Hubdoc automates tasks like bill and receipt capture, data entry and bank reconciliation. So you and your clients get that time back – plus the accurate data you need – to do beautiful business together.
We’re excited to include Hubdoc, which has a retail price of £15 a month excluding tax, as part of all Xero Starter, Standard and Premium plans in the UK from 18 March 2020. Find out more about Hubdoc here.
