This article on stuff, pointing out Rod Drury’s success with Aftermail and planned success with Xero is fantastic. Kiwi’s are traditionally appalling at recognising our talent and successful people. Well done to the team at Stuff for actually going out there and celebrating this guys success.
I’m a big fan of the SaaS delivery model and concept as a whole, and while i’ve not trialled Xero, the concept is incredibly sound, the vision grand. I’ll be watching it closely. After (or perhaps with) CRM, finance applications and payroll are going to be the big winners in SaaS.
You can tell by the list of people becoming involved in the project that it’s got legs. I’d personally love be one of them.
From us at Unreasonablemen, Congrats
