MYOB has leaped into cloud-based ERP with the launch of MYOB Advanced, a powerful business suite for mid to large sized companies.
MYOB Advanced is based on the US ERP Acumatica for which MYOB obtained an exclusive Asia Pacific license about a year and a half ago. In the meantime a team of developers in Auckland has localised the software’s tax module for GST and changing spelling to Australian English throughout.
It sits above the AccountRight range and is intended as a cloud alternative to MYOB Exo. These two products are suited to companies with 30-250+ employees, according to the MYOB product chart.
MYOB Advanced is relatively affordable given the number of features at A$99 per user per month (NZ$109) for the entry-level Standard edition.
The Standard edition gives users access to all functions, while Plus (A$139) and Enterprise (A$179) add greater numbers of workflows and more licence types such as sales, warehouse, projects and finance.
Unlike cloud accounting software in the small business end of the spectrum, the Acumatica program makes no sacrifices in function. It has complex inventory management including multiple warehouses, sales and purchasing, accounting and general ledger and a CRM.
The platform is also highly customisable, best demonstrated by its mobile app which MYOB describes as a “player”. A company can decide which data from the ERP it wants to display in the mobile app and can tailor it to its own needs.
As with Acumatica, B2BGateway is a MYOB Advanced partner, offering users cloud-based, fully-integrated EDI and automated supply chain solutions. B2BGateway’s MYOB Advanced solutions allow users to communicate electronically with their trading partners and remove the need to key data, in turn reducing errors and hastening the ‘order to payment’ cash cycle.
