Xero collaborates with Coveo to power small businesses' applications
Xero, a global small business platform, is releasing a new search functionality on Xero’s app marketplace, powered by enterprise software-as-a-service platform Coveo, making it easier for small businesses to find the right apps to suit their needs.
“We’re passionate about getting apps into the hands of more small businesses, with those that connect to apps more likely to see increased revenue and greater business efficiency,” said Nick Houldsworth, executive GM of ecosystem at Xero.
The new search functionality is powered by Coveo’s recommendations tool, using machine learning to serve up app suggestions based on a small business’ profile when they are logged into Xero.
Xero’s established relationship with Coveo, which also powers the search on Xero Central—a one-stop support resource for small businesses, accountants and bookkeepers—means Xero will be able to offer users an even more connected experience.
It will eventually enable customers to view Xero support articles in app marketplace searches, and app marketplace recommendations in Xero Central.
Whether a small business is looking to move sales online, coordinate staff or manage projects, Xero’s app marketplace features an array of third-party apps to help with their unique industry and business administration challenges.
With more than 800 third-party apps that connect to the platform, Xero’s app marketplace now serves up suggestions based on a small business’ profile when it is logged into Xero and an improved search toolbar presents popular apps and quick links, providing a more personalized, intuitive, and efficient experience.
