Xero welcome cloud-based Israeli firm into its marketplace

13 May 15

Online accounting software company Xero has announced it has teamed up Israeli firm Pepperi, a provider of cloud-based mobile sales automation tools for brand manufacturers and wholesalers. 

The joint solution integrates Xero’s core accounting software with Pepperi’s cloud-based sales suite – enabling brands and wholesalers to increase sales by 20% or more, cut order processing costs by as much as 30%, and deliver an enhanced buying experience for B2B customers.

“We are excited to welcome Pepperi to the Xero Marketplace, which will undoubtedly result in added business value for our customers,” says Chris Ridd, Xero’s managing director in Australia. “Xero’s ability to make small businesses better by saving time on back-office processes, joined with Pepperi’s fully automated sales apps, is a clear-cut formula for increased revenue and efficiency.”    

Pepperi equips field sales representatives with an all-in-one tablet application for catalog-centric order taking, customer management, and sales team management.

Product, inventory and customer data from Xero is available to sales representatives at all times, with orders taken in the field automatically updating Xero.

“We are thrilled to become a certified add-on solution to Xero, providing Xero’s customers with a plug and play sales extension to their core accounting system,” says Oren Ezra, Pepperi vice president of marketing.  “Joint customers such as Spirit Publishing and Foodlynx are already realising the business value of our integrated solution, and we look forward to helping many of Xero’s customers propel their sales to new heights.”
