What does Roger's integration for Xero do?

Roger's integration with Xero automatically syncs your bills, receipts, and credit notes from Roger to Xero, including vendor invoices and payments:

  1. When an invoice is submitted to your Roger account, the integration automatically creates a vendor invoice entry in your Xero account under that vendor. If the vendor is not already in your Xero contact list, Roger will automatically create it for you. 
  2. When the invoice is paid via Roger, the integration automatically creates a vendor payment entry in your Xero account under that vendor.
