ABUKAI Partners with Xero to Promote New Services to Customers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – March 29, 2012 - ABUKAI, Inc., the innovation leader in providing actionable business productivity solutions, announced today their partnership with Xero, Ltd., award-winning provider of online accounting systems for businesses.

The partnership will enable customers from both companies to benefit from their cooperative endeavors. Initial efforts include availability of a direct integration between ABUKAI Expenses and Xero and cross-marketing activities.

“This partnership with Xero is a great example of how ABUKAI Expenses can work with other systems,” said Philipp Schloter, president and chief executive officer of ABUKAI. “Xero customers can now directly feed their business expenses into Xero with ABUKAI Expenses. They just take photos of their receipts and the expense data gets directly posted into Xero, without the user ever having to key-in their receipt information. Expenses get automatically categorized by ABUKAI based on the chart of accounts configured in Xero.”

Xero accounting software gives small businesses and their advisors easy access to bank transactions, invoicing, and reports anytime it’s needed, from anywhere in the world where they can connect to the Internet. “With ABUKAI joining our add-on Partner Network and the streamlining integration with ABUKAI Expenses, we’re able to offer Xero customers a greater choice of tools to help their business succeed, ” says Xero US President Jamie Sutherland.

“ABUKAI is a great time and cost saving application. Integrating with XERO has enabled the reimbursement and accounting of expenses much easier, “ said Roger Clark, Manager-Secretary of Ozanam House, a non-profit organization based in New Zealand.

ABUKAI‘s expense report solution, ABUKAI Expenses™ can provide significant savings as it completely transforms how employees create expense reports. Users take pictures of their expense receipts with their smart phones and then submit them for processing. ABUKAI Expenses “reads” the receipt images, converts the data, and automatically enters the correct information into an expense report, organized in the appropriate accounts. This produces both time-savings for businesses and produces more accurate and timely reporting of business expenses. Any ABUKAI Expenses user can now directly link ABUKAI to Xero through the ABUKAI User Portal or through the customization form within the ABUKAI Expenses mobile application. Corporate accounts are available as well.
