Xero App Marketplace
The continued push to, and adoption of, cloud accounting by SMB's makes the release of the new App Marketplace a timely development for Xero. According to the company, the App Marketplace has over 500 apps and more than 25% of Xero's 717,000 users currently use 1 or more apps.
Apps are categorized by function type, i.e.: Inventory, Payments, CRM, Time Tracking, Etc. Once you enter a solution area you will find 12 options listed per page. Each app lists a brief description, tells you the types of businesses (retail, manufacturing, etc.) they work with, shows a Star Ranking and you are able to view user comments. You are able to change the order of the listings between "Most Popular", "Latest" or "Alphabetically".
The App Marketplace also features educational content for accountants, bookkeepers and small businesses. You can read more and watch a short video on the App Marketplace on the Xero blog.
