Xero and Chaser users, you can now launch Chaser directly from your Xero account!
With the new Xero App Launcher, you can launch Chaser or any other app connected to your Xero organization directly from your Xero account.
Open Chaser whilst using Xero without interrupting your workflow, without needing to search for Chaser in another tab, or rely on your browser bookmarks. What’s more, you’ll also be logged into Chaser automatically, so you can skip the sign-in page.
What is the Xero App Launcher
The App Launcher is a new feature in Xero that allows businesses to launch apps directly from their Xero accounting software. This means businesses can launch Chaser directly from their Xero account, without having to log in to Chaser separately.

The Xero App Launcher makes it easier for businesses to access their Chaser account and manage their accounts receivables process. This will save you time switching between applications and make it simpler to stay on top of your accounts receivables process with Xero and Chaser.
If you’re a Xero user, we recommend taking advantage of this new feature and launching Chaser directly from your accounting software when you need to check for payment or payment communicaiton updates, or update your payment reminder emails or follow up schedules.
