IAGRI™ reaches ground Xero
28 August 2014
Finally, a cloud based solution even the number crunchers can get excited about.
Xerocon Australia 2014 proved to be the perfect launch pad for iAgri, the agri-add on partner for Xero’s farm
With more than 1,300 delegates cramming into the Dome in Sydney to hear the latest news from Xero and check out the
latest add-ons and services from 82 exhibitors, the Canterbury based farm software company was one of the real winners.
iAgri CEO John Lay says there was a huge degree of interest in the product. “Farming is as important in Australia as it
is in New Zealand so we fielded a lot of enquiry. Plainly, a lot of the accountants and bankers, many of whom had
travelled from all over Australia specifically to view the iAgri add-on, have been waiting for a comprehensive solution
like this to take to their clients and they were super excited – about as excited as an accountant can get anyway.”
Mr Lay, a Canterbury farmer and former Lincoln University lecturer, says the iAgri cloud based solution was developed
specifically with farmers in mind, making it an attractive partner to Xero.
“It’s really a quantum leap for farmers and accountants alike, developed specifically for Australian and New Zealand
farmers with local conditions in mind.
“iAgri enables farmers, their managers and accountants to plan for the season ahead with comprehensive farm budgeting,
mapping and farm diary recording software as well as feed and financial budgeting solutions that integrate beautifully
Mr Lay says iAgri was designed around the needs of farmers, providing a cloud based tool to manage their finances while
recording their farming activities for shared analysis and strategic planning.
“It works off any platform and is adaptable to smart phone application, with users able to access the online programme
via their PC, tablet or smart phone from anywhere on the planet.”
