Online accounting software provider Xero announced a new business performance dashboard and the date for its 2015 Xerocon accounting show at the Solutions14 conference Tuesday.

The dashboard, which provides business owners and their advisors with real-time visibility into their business health and performance, was unveiled by Jamie Sutherland, Xero U.S. president. It includes indicators on how quickly users get paid, how quickly they pay bills, and the markup earned on sales.

“Most business owners don’t know how their business is performing until a month later,” stated Sutherland. “With Xero’s upcoming Business Performance Dashboard and big data capabilities, they will be able to see in real time how they are doing and how they compare to others to quickly make any necessary adjustments. This is just the first step in how we’ll be looking to use big data from our global accounting platform to better serve our customers.”

A video demo of the Xero Business Performance dashboard, to be available within the Xero software (free to existing customers) in early 2015, can be viewed here.

During his Solutions14 session, Sutherland also announced the return of Xerocon in the U.S., last hosted in 2013. The 2015 event will take place in Denver June 2-4 and feature keynote speakers and lessons in the Xero platform and ecosystem of more than 350 integrated business apps. Pre-registration is available here.

“We’re focused on helping the millions of small businesses and their advisors in the U.S. grow and thrive,” Sutherland stated. “Xerocon 2015 will educate more accounting professionals on how to grow their firms using Xero and the cloud to help them and their clients succeed.”
