Harshman Phillips & Company Earns Xero Platinum Partner Status

Online accounting software leader Xero confers prestigious Platinum Partner status on Harshman Phillips & Company.

Online PR News – 24-January-2014 – Atlanta, GA – Atlanta-based full service accounting firm Harshman Phillips & Company (HPC) is proud to announce they have earned Platinum Partner status with Xero, the global leader in online accounting software.

Xero is a leading provider of small business online accounting software that is accessible via the cloud anytime, anywhere. In this growing field, competition can be pretty stiff and Xero works with a great many respectable CPA firms who help Xero’s clients implement their new software services. However, only a select few receive the special designations of Silver or Gold Partners. Even fewer are awarded the title Platinum Partner. In fact, HPC is now one of only two U.S. firms who can boast being a Platinum Partner with Xero.

“We are honored to have earned Platinum Partner status with Xero,” says Bruce Phillips, a partner and managing member at HPC. “We’ve been working with Xero from the moment they made their entrance into the U.S. market because we were excited to find a more efficient alternative in accounting software. The company and its products are dynamic, forward-thinking and honestly fun to work with, so we couldn’t be happier to have been a part of their team.”

Jamie Sutherland, president of Xero U.S. says, "Xero is happy to recognize HPC as a leading partner, whose expertise and enthusiasm has helped Xero to continue its growth and reach in the U.S. Not only does HPC embody the accounting and small business expertise and knowledge expected of Xero partners, it is proactive in participating in our educational events and online training. HPC understands Xero inside and out and we're glad to have them as part of our family."
