15 Nov 2016

Leading accounting software provider MYOB has been named ‘Service Provider of the Year’ at the New Zealand Franchise Awards, held Saturday night in Auckland.

The accolade recognises service providers who have made a significant contribution to their franchise clients. Entrants were assessed on their business operations and strategy, staff and customer engagement, as well as performance and financial results.

Commenting on the win, MYOB’s Head of SME Ingrid Cronin-Knight says the company is extremely honoured to receive such recognition.

“MYOB has been helping businesses succeed for more than 25 years and we have built a strong relationship with the franchisee community. We’re delighted that connection has been recognised with this reward,” she says.

“MYOB identified several key requirements for businesses in the franchise sector. We then developed a comprehensive franchise support programme in order to help them get ahead. Our focus on integrating MYOB’s range of business management products with the various franchises’ systems has enabled us to establish a deep and highly effective level of communication – not only between the software, but also between our businesses.”

The judges praised MYOB for their work in partnership with key franchise operations. They commended MYOB’s commitment to customers in the SME environment and strong investment in cloud-based services.

“Our partnerships with the Franchise Association of NZ and Franchise New Zealand have cemented MYOB as the key provider of online accounting to franchisors and franchisees around New Zealand,” says Ms Cronin-Knight.

The New Zealand Franchise Awards, run by the Franchise Association of New Zealand and Westpac, are designed to celebrate innovation and success in New Zealand’s franchise sector. Franchise Accountants and Franchise Consultants (NZ) Ltd were both highly commended for the Service Provider of the Year award.
