Xero has signed a deal with Telstra to have its online accounting software offered on Telstra's T-Suite platform.
T-Suite is a SaaS (Software-as-a-service) platform which offers a range of hosted software applications, from security to Human Resources management to CRM.
T-Suite’s offering includes security software from McAfee and MessageLabs, and a hosted version of Microsoft’s Dynamics CRM product.
In a statement, Xero says “Xero’s accounting system, delivered entirely over the internet, is a perfect fit for the T-Suite service”.
Xero will become part of T-Suite in June.
In other news, Xero announced earlier this week that it now has 6,000 paying customers, including more than 2,000 in the UK.
