ARMANINO TO SHIFT SMALL-BIZ ACCOUNTING CLIENTS TO XERO

San Francisco -- Accounting services and technology consultancy Armanino has decided to move its small-business outsourcing clients from their current accounting platforms to Xero, making it the largest firm thus far to do so.

Xero has been actively targeting U.S. accounting firms to use and recommend the product since establishing a base here nearly two years ago; however, the majority of firms have admittedly been small firms and solo practices.

Armanino, which ranked No. 29 in the 2013 Accounting Today Top 100 Firms report, had been servicing most of the small-business clients in its outsourced accounting business on other accounting platforms, including QuickBooks and Sage 50; however, upon evaluation it decided that it will begin transitioning those clients to Xero where it makes sense.
