Xero announced an integration with Microsoft Power BI that enables customers to access and analyze information from Xero and other sources in Microsoft Office 365.  

With this integration, Xero users can directly connect with their business data through Power BI’s visualization tools and Excel and, starting in March, create data visualizations of the commonly tracked 25 small business metrics including cash position, revenue vs. expenses, profit loss trend, debtor days and return on investment.

“Business tools today are smarter and more connected than ever and finally available to the small business sector,” stated Xero CEO Rod Drury. “The accounting industry runs on Microsoft Office and we’re delighted to further integrate with Microsoft’s Power BI to give our users easier ways to access and analyze information from Xero and other sources to make smart, informed decisions.”

Xero customers can view their Xero data next to other business data using solutions like Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Mailchimp, Salesforce, Google Analytics, Zendesk and Stripe.

“Technology exists for us to transform and change what we can do,” stated James Phillips, Microsoft’s corporate vice president and the general manager of Microsoft’s Business Applications, Platform and Intelligence organization. “Microsoft’s integration work with Xero brings together each of our strengths in cloud, productivity and business intelligence so our customers can more easily analyze and visualize their business data, share insights from anywhere within Office 365, and work with each other to get more done.”
