In the last 12 months we have worked harder than ever to deliver some of our most exciting products yet. We’ve introduced our first cloud ERP solution, MYOB Advanced; launched MYOB Portal to market, released smart bills and extended OnTheGo to include EFTPOS, just to name a few.
The hard work has paid off, and now it’s time to celebrate because we have just been recognised as Australia’s Most Innovative Large Company in 2015 by Business Review Weekly (BRW) and awarded second place in the overall list of BRW’s 50 most innovative companies!
The annual BRW awards recognise excellence in innovation across products and internal process, and the recognition is a huge vote of confidence to our teams who have put their hearts and soul into the next generation of product innovations.
This is such a milestone for us, and one that we should all be so proud to be a part of. Over the past 5 years the basis of competition in our category has changed dramatically, such that today innovation is critical to being competitive. Our teams have worked tirelessly to inject innovation into our work culture; the way in which we organise people, the way in which we talk, the way in which we engage with our clients and the skills we look for.
But, probably most important is the expectations we have of ourselves which have all changed and are now all focused on innovation. This has all lead to some market leading, innovative solutions that make business life easier for our 1.2 million clients. And, we can see it working; cloud accounting now makes up 67% of our new registrations, up from 48% the same time a year ago and 24% the year before. I’m really proud of how far we’ve come and the rate at which we are now innovating.
Congratulations to all involved!
