Tidy, a New Zealand based Xero Add-On Partner that provides project, job and inventory management solutions has recently opened their European HQ in the city. XU Magazine talked to Kevin Mann, Tidy CEO, about the firm’s progress, the customers and integration partners they are working with and how the Xero community is fundamental to their business.

On-premise firms have struggled to adapt or are dying while pure cloud-mobile firms like public-listed Xero and growth firms like Tidy grow fast and get stronger. We don’t carry out-dated baggage. The cloud and mobile technology provides a massive opportunity for businesses to be more streamlined and for software to be easier to on-board and use.
