We are thrilled to announce an expanded partnership in the US with Osidon, a digital online accountancy company offering industry-leading services to entrepreneurs and small businesses. Osidon is a Xero platinum partner and the firm has been a trailblazer since its founding in South Africa in 2017. The firm leverages cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) to help small businesses, accountants and bookkeepers gain a competitive edge.
Both Xero and Osidon share the same vision of empowering advisors through technology so they can deliver meaningful insights for their clients and focus on providing higher value advisory services.
As Osidon’s preferred cloud accounting solution provider, Xero helps enable the firm to surface real-time financial insights about their clients. This allows businesses to operate more effectively and efficiently collaborate with their advisor to make smart business decisions.
With the Xero platform, workflows that used to take hours can be completed in minutes. Features like invoice reminders or automatic data extraction from bills and expenses make it faster and easier for businesses to transact on information. Using financial data and insights from Xero, the Osidon team can create better workflows for their clients, and as a result, help them spend more time growing their business and doing what they love.
Hennie Ferreira, co-founder and CEO of Osidon says, “Xero is our exclusive accounting software partner and their services integrate fully with the Osidon system, making the lives of our clients much simpler. We share the same vision: to make the lives of entrepreneurs and business owners easier through the use of technology.”
Welcoming Osidon to the US market
Earlier this month, Osidon announced its expansion to the US, naming Austin, Texas the new headquarters for the organization. Austin, Texas was recently ranked by CBRE’s Tech Talent Scorecard as one of the top six markets for tech talent in North America, and is quickly becoming one of the nation’s leading cities to live and work.
Ferreira shares, “Austin is one of the largest, developing tech hubs in the world. The city is seeing a huge influx of tech companies and this is definitely an attractive place for us to expand to. Osidon is at the forefront of the industry and we are revolutionizing accounting services for entrepreneurs, which is why it makes sense for us to operate in one of the biggest emerging tech markets in the world. Furthermore, there is a pool of talent to tap into and we would like to contribute to job creation and offer opportunities to work with us.”
We’re proud to work alongside partners like Osidon in our local markets to help make an impact on the accounting profession and help more small businesses prosper. “We want to make a difference for entrepreneurs and small businesses, make compliance a breeze and contribute to the American economy. If we can provide essential services to entrepreneurs and small businesses, it benefits us all,” Ferreira adds.
