2019 Xero Awards
We didn’t end up winning the “Xero National Partner of Year Award” in Wellington last week, but are proud to have made the finals. The process made us very aware that PKF NZ and our member firms, nationally and internationally, are doing some awesome stuff and Xero is very much central to these efforts!
The PKF network has 10 firms here in New Zealand and over 200 firms internationally with 400 offices in 150 countries! It’s a network that’s right for the times – local decision making - but with national and international reach creating value at all levels - and we’re continuing to grow.
The majority of our member firms are full Xero businesses, leveraging multiple tools to gain internal efficiencies and assist our clients to run and grow their businesses.
Our team are Xero certified, with specialists in a number of areas and we are committed to ongoing Xero skill development - in both the base Xero product and across the Xero ecosystem.
We are seriously committed to our clients learning, with a range of targeted tutorials, training sessions and “hotlines” hosted by our member firms.
PKF partners with Xero at a number of levels – locally, regionally and nationally and we are very proud of our Platinum partner status, which we actively promoted at every opportunity.
National initiatives such as the “Charity for Not-for-Profits” campaign, provides free consultancy and Xero subscription holidays to this sector, helping improve their systems and reporting and providing exposure for PKF firms and for Xero.
On the international front, PKF NZ developed the “Xero Centre of Excellence” concept, assisting PKF firms across the globe on their Xero journey. We’ve helped firms in Australia, the UK, Thailand and other Asian countries. We’ve even provided assistance and advice to a member firm up in Pakistan!
PKF NZ directors have delivered “Xero Centre of Excellence” presentations at our Asia Pacific and World conferences.
We know “it’s not just about the numbers” and we want to say thanks Xero for giving us some time back - so we can have the conversations with our clients that really matter!
