Xero and Z Energy have today announced that Z Card customers can now sign up to have a copy of their invoice data transferred automatically to Xero, saving thousands of small businesses time manually entering transactions.

Without having to manually enter data, a Z Card bill will show up in Xero ready to be coded and approved. Z is New Zealand’s first fuel retailer to be providing this service to its customers.

Xero’s NZ Managing Director Victoria Crone said having an innovative kiwi company like Z integrating invoicing seamlessly into the Xero global financial platform for small business was a huge milestone.

“Xero and Z have a lot of synergies. We were both founded in New Zealand and we both recognise the importance of small businesses and love finding ways to make it easier for them to be productive,” Crone said.

“Xero is connecting big business to small business and through our open API we are creating new opportunities and saving kiwi small businesses their most valuable asset time.

“There is great potential for businesses, like Z, to interact with our more than 100,000 New Zealand customers,” Crone said.

Z Energy’s Commercial General Manager Lindis Jones said working with Xero is just another way Z is looking to make its customers’ lives easier.

“We know that time is really important to our customers and through partnering with Xero we can help them spend more time focussing on the things that really matter.

“We think customers will appreciate saving time on doing administration each month, and the Z Card invoice feed into Xero won’t cost a cent,” Lindis said.
