MYOB making life easier for businesses OnTheGo

17 Nov 2014

New Zealand’s leading business solutions provider, MYOB has today announced the release of MYOB OnTheGo, a free app for MYOB AccountRight and Essentials subscribers. MYOB OnTheGo allows users to manage their accounts and cash flow straight from their smartphone.

Business owners can now create and send invoices, see who owes them money, and record cash and cheque payments, from wherever they are.

The March 2014 Business Monitor revealed that 51% of SMEs use one or more smartphones for business. This statistic is not lost on General Manager Connected Services, Andrew Birch, who says the release of OnTheGo for AccountRight and Essentials clients is part of the ongoing process of MYOB’s commitment to making business life easier.

“Mobile technologies are increasingly blurring the line between personal and work lives and with this comes endless opportunities and applications, especially for small business owners.  

“MYOB recognises the need for customers to have mobile functionality. What we are focused on is analysing the state of play, listening to our customers and evolving with the technology to make sure we’re providing the very best.

“MYOB is empowering owners to manage their business on the go - including cash flow. The greater their ability to fit business activity into mobile moments, the more productive they are, leaving more time for working on the business and for enjoying life outside work.”

MYOB OnTheGo brings a selection of AccountRight and Essentials features to mobile devices. Information is then updated in real time to their company file so clients can spend less time doing their bookwork. 

Features of MYOB OnTheGo include:

  • The ability to create and send items and service invoices on the go
  • Customer management and real-time debtor status information
  • Record cash and cheque payments
  • Real-time MYOB account updates

Mr Birch says, “The MYOB OnTheGo app reduces the need to re-key data, which improves accuracy and saves our clients and partners time. The office paper trail starts with invoices and receipts - we’re pinpointing the source of that trail and enabling the electronic generation.”

Further information on the MYOB OnTheGo app, including information and download links from Apple and Google Play, is available at
