accounting software provider zero has announced a collaboration with Intel to help small business owners better manage their finances. Launching of the company’s products include Intel Software Advantage Program, a global full-service program that provides complimentary software for customers purchasing eligible Intel devices, thereby giving customers access to a wide variety of applications. The program is a sales tool that lets participating retailers drive sales and customer relationships.
With the partnership between the two companies, Xero customers in the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom who purchase an eligible Intel vPro PC (desktop or laptop) will receive an exclusive offer for Xero’s cloud accounting solutions.
Xero’s cloud accounting software helps businesses sync bank and financial information, monitor cash flow, reconcile transactions, send invoices and get paid faster with online payment options. The company says that its platform can help eliminate the need for manual data entry, and provide business owners with seamless bookkeeping.
The software bundle consists of a variety of products specially chosen to help small to medium sized businesses grow. It gives businesses access to premier software, extended trials, discounts and app credits worth over US$500. It aims to benefit small businesses as well as slightly larger organizations with their own IT departments.
“We are pleased to partner with Xero, and know that our customers will appreciate the offering Xero offers and enjoy the business efficiencies it brings to Intel vPro devices”, said Dennis Luo, Senior Director and General Manager Commercial and Collaboration Solutions at Intel Told.
