MYOB supports NZ manufacturers with industry-specific software

02 Jul 2020

MYOB Advanced Manufacturing Edition, software designed specifically for manufacturers, is available now for New Zealand businesses.

The Manufacturing Edition includes all the standard features of MYOB Advanced – MYOB's premiere cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software – along with features specifically for manufacturing.

The features include bill of materials, production management, material requirements planning (MRP), product configurator and estimate tools, together enabling manufacturers to efficiently manage their entire business end-to-end using one system.

According to the March MYOB Business Monitor – a survey of over 1,000 SMEs nationwide – 45% of manufacturing operators believed that access to business management software would be beneficial to their business operations[1] and the release of MYOB’s Advanced Manufacturing Edition is set to provide a new level of assistance to the industry during a key period of economic recovery.

“The MYOB Advanced Manufacturing Edition is rich with features specifically designed for an industry that plays a significant role in New Zealand’s economy,” MYOB General Manager Enterprise, Kim Clarke, says.

“Integrating production and resource management, sales and finance from one central system, this software will help New Zealand manufacturers streamline their business processes, as well as provide them with real-time visibility. This means they’re then able to better generate accurate pricing, calculate and manage manufacturing costs, maintain revisions and track their financials.

“Going beyond standard accounting functionality, it is a way for manufacturing business leaders to efficiently manage their whole organisation with one system and without the need for third-party manufacturing add-ons,” explains Ms. Clarke.

“This enables manufacturing leaders to make insight driven decisions, with real-time accurate data at their fingertips and ensures their business is set up for continual growth.”

The MYOB Business Monitor also revealed that more than a quarter (26%) of New Zealand’s manufacturing operators expect to increase their investment in IT systems & processes, over the next 12 months.

With the manufacturing sector contributing around 11% of the national GDP and providing 9% of New Zealand’s workforce with employment[2], the performance and success of operators in the industry will be vital for the local economy as the country aims to recover from the wide-ranging impacts of COVID-19.
