Star Business Solutions to be acquired by MYOB as part of ANZ Enterprise growth strategy

MYOB today announced the acquisition of Star Business Solutions – a leading business management and enterprise solutions partner, to bolster its direct sales and service channel for ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solutions.

The acquisition will see Star Business Solutions bring decades of global software market experience, including customisation and implementation of MYOB’s on-premise ERP solution Greentree, to MYOB as the business continues its acceleration into the mid-market.

MYOB General Manager for Enterprise, Kim Clarke, said: “Star Business Solutions has been one of MYOB’s top performing Enterprise partners for many years. Their success is testament to the dedication owners Trish and Norman Hall have invested into their business and their people, and we couldn’t go past the opportunity to work together to realise our vision for the market.”

Winner of the MYOB Excellence in Business Development Award three years running and MYOB Partner of the Year in 2016, Star Business Solutions has a proven track record helping Australian mid-market businesses and not-for-profit organisations with their business management solutions.

The acquisition will see Star Business Solutions’ Advanced specialists join MYOB to enhance its direct channel function, with Ms Hall joining MYOB to oversee the management of all Greentree customers serviced directly by MYOB.

Ms Clarke said Greentree customers would be a key beneficiary of the acquisition: “Combining forces with our largest Greentree partner and developer will bring new focus and attention to delivering best-in-class experiences for our customers.”

Star Business Solutions Chief Executive Officer, Trish Hall, said she saw the power of what could be done for customers by working together with MYOB, and came up with a proposition that both organisations were excited to invest in.

“The success of our customers has always been at the core of our approach – we recognise their goals and we’re passionate about helping them to achieve them. We could see that there was strong alignment with MYOB on this mission, so it made sense to us to try to join forces and provide our customers with access to the best platforms, product experience and support moving forward.

“We have been a family-owned business and our people are particularly important to us. This change means our employees will also have access to fantastic career opportunities and can really kick goals as they develop their skills in a thriving and exciting industry,” said Ms Hall.    

Kim Clarke said both organisations were committed to driving business success for customers, no matter on the type, size or stage of the business.

“Trish and her team bring a wealth of experience across Greentree and MYOB Advanced and will be instrumental in shaping a new enhanced Greentree experience within MYOB, covering sales and support, customisations and product development.

“We’re looking forward to working as one team - not only to support more businesses with their ERP needs, but to deliver a model which creates the most compelling customer experience for Australian and New Zealand mid-market businesses,” Ms Clarke added.
