Xero NZ and Global Managing Director, Victoria Crone, congratulated BDO South Africa on achieving Platinum Partner with Xero.
“BDO is a great partner to Xero in New Zealand and our other main markets," she says.
"I’m really excited by the opportunity this expanded relationship will bring, and I look forward to hearing about the growth potential that Xero delivers for South African small businesses.
"And the speed at which small businesses globally are adopting Xero shows they want accounting software that is beautiful, easy to use, and can be operated from anywhere, on any device."
