How to get early access to Xero's accounting software new features?

Like any company operating in the tech industry, Xero continues cycle of improvement. Continuous improvement provides moments of genuine opportunity and creates an innovation challenge.

Design research panel

The design research panel is the main way for Xero's researchers and designers to involve Xero customers in the product development process. This panel is used for early stage discovery research, as well as getting feedback on concepts or ideas.

It’s a convenient process that opens opportunities to participate in online surveys, interviews, user testing, and other kinds of research that shape the user experience you deserve. Some are even incentivised.

It’s quick and easy to sign up for the design research panel. Once signed up, you’ll receive email invites containing a session overview and invitation to register your interest.
