Xero Accounting Program Status – December 2017 – aBIZinaBOX has been a member of the Xero Partner Program for thirty months. We were excited when we joined the program and an application with superb potential relative to QuickBooks Online [“QBO”]. We quickly became concerned about the management of the Americas Partner Program. We posted a series of questions and commentaries about the program which certainly kicked up some sparks. We questioned the pace of the process of designating Cloud Integrators in the Americas.
At one point, we were threatened with expulsion from the program in a letter from Russ Fujioka, Xero Americas – President. The exchange led to an extraordinary relationship and exchange between Mr.Fujioka and myself.
The Google Cloud Partner Program [“GCP”] has numerous requirements for the ability to
resell and support each product, badges and certification exams for partners to demonstrate their expertise and ability to support customers.
The requirements detail both the certification levels and a number of professionals required to earn each. An example of my own participation is illustrated below.
