MYOB launches API for best-selling mid-sized ERP solution, EXO Business

04 Dec 2013

MYOB today announced the introduction of an application programming interface (API) for its ERP business management system EXO Business, which is used by thousands of mid-sized clients across Australia and New Zealand. The API allows any third-party application to connect to EXO Business data files.

The technology company launched its API program earlier this year, starting with an API for its flagship cloud accounting solution AccountRight Live – a powerful cloud-enabled accounting solution with a rich desktop interface. It has since attracted more than 550 API developer partners.

General Manager - Enterprise Division Andrew Birch says, “The launch of EXO Business API is a significant milestone in the tier 3 ERP solution space and greatly enhances MYOB’s ability to assist mid-sized clients in managing their businesses. Importantly, the best-practice API design enables third-party developer partners to achieve stable integration and extend their reach to include our many thousands of EXO Business clients.

“The opportunities are endless for developers to create and integrate apps that make business life easier for EXO Business clients. Clients will be able to access a wide range of add-ons providing additional functionality, such as customisable reports and analysis tools that integrate securely with other online services.”

Enprise CEO Mark Loveys says, "The new MYOB EXO API will make it even easier for third party developers to more safely and correctly extend the reach and functionality of MYOB EXO Business. With so many thousands of businesses already using MYOB EXO throughout Australasia, I believe it is now a compelling platform for developing complementary market vertical add-on products such as mobile solutions and cloud-based services."

"This will help take MYOB EXO from already being the top-selling mid-market ERP product in this region into even more vertical market opportunities. Vertical solution developers always prefer to work with the market leading platform – and here, that is MYOB EXO."

The MYOB EXO Business API is available for use with EXO Business v8.3 and above, as a Windows service and accessed locally or via the cloud using the MYOB LiveRelay. It’s available on any programming language that supports REST-based web services.

The MYOB API developer program is open to any developer who wants to create and integrate add-on solutions that make business life easier for AccountRight Live and EXO Business clients. The program offers three levels of membership to suit different needs.
