“Xero and Silicon Valley Bank have a common objective — to make the lives of our customers easier,” said Gary Turner, Xero’s managing director. “In fact, it wasn’t that long ago that Xero was a startup itself — so we know all too well what it’s like to be under the gun to create up-to-date financial reports for the board or quickly get an update on cash flow before making a key purchasing decision. Now with Xero’s integration with SVB’s banking platform, small businesses can get their up-to-date financial info faster than ever before.”
“Our SVB Direct Connect platform integration with Xero is another important step in our organizational strategy to make it easy for our clients to bank with us,” said Bruce Wallace, COO, Silicon Valley Bank.
