Xero to launch accounting bot for Facebook Messenger, iMessage, and Slack

The Facebook Messenger bot news was shared at Xerocon South, a gathering of more than 2,000 financial professionals from Australia, New Zealand, and Asa.


The more than 700,000 users of small business accounting software Xero will soon have a Facebook Messenger bot to access their business data and hire financial professionals. Plans for Slack and Apple iOS bots were also announced today.

The bot is codenamed Hey Xero and will make its debut later this year, the company said in a statement.

“Using Hey Xero, businesses will be able access the Xero Advisor Directory and be recommended a suitable accountant or bookkeeper in their area. Xero subscribers will also be able to discover new apps in the Xero ecosystem and query their latest financial data, such as who owes them money or when their next bill is due,” the company said.

More than 50 million small businesses have a Facebook page, COO Sheryl Sandberg said in a post late last year.

The news was announced at Xerocon South, a gathering of more than 2,000 accountants, bookkeepers, and financial professionals from Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.

The cloud-based New Zealand company has raised more than $110 million to fund expansion into United States and United Kingdom markets. Plans for a U.S. IPO were delayed in 2015, according to Reuters.
