MYOB simplifies platform for small businesses

Leading business management platform MYOB has made improvements to MYOB Business and the MYOB Business AccountRight browser experience, with user-friendly terminology, more intuitive navigation, and a new shortcuts feature in the Help section, making the management of key workflows even easier. 

The platform update, released today to customers using MYOB Business Lite and Pro, and the MYOB Business AccountRight Plus and Premier browser, is the result of feedback from small and medium sized enterprise (SME) owners as well as accountants and bookkeepers. 

MYOB General Manager for SME, Emma Fawcett, said the changes will make the adoption of business management technology an easier prospect for small business owners, and will save their accountants and bookkeepers time on onboarding and support so they can concentrate on higher value advisory.

“Most small business owners don’t chase their dreams because they love doing the books. We want to help them reap the benefits that a business management platform can provide, without having to learn a whole new financial language.

“Many of our customers, particularly accountants and bookkeepers, are extremely financially literate, but that’s not always the case with small business owners themselves, so we have replaced some of the more technical terms with user-friendly terminology and made it easier for them to use the platform.

“These changes will free up time our accountants and bookkeeping community currently spend on helping their clients navigate the platform, so they can instead focus on providing expert knowledge and guidance.

“The functionality itself has not changed and the solution continues to offer the best-in-class tools needed to run a small or medium sized business.”

The update includes:

  • A refreshed look and feel of the menu, simplifying navigation of the platform.

  • More user-friendly and intuitive terminology, making it easier for customers to find what they need.

  • A new shortcuts feature in the Help section, enabling faster trouble shooting.

“Together, the new-look terminology and navigation ensures small business owners will spend less time setting up and learning how to use the solution, so they can immediately make use of the benefits that MYOB Business provides.”

The updates will be live in MYOB Business Lite, MYOB Business Pro, as well as the AccountRight Plus and AccountRight Premier browser apps from 2 May 2024 in Australia and New Zealand.
