The New Zealand All Blacks recent rugby world cup victory in the UK included their win over Tonga in Newcastle. They aren’t the only Kiwis to use the city as the base for future success. 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.
Efficiency in a new era of technology
“Ever since we launched the business in 2010 we have been driven to help companies become more efficient in a new era of cloud-mobile coupled technology. I think that is a common theme amongst the Xero community, whether it is Xero themselves, add-on partners like us, accountants or integrators. 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. For individuals, teams and management of SME’s it’s real time information about their business, accessed anywhere they might be and need that information to work at a more productive pace.
