Choosing The Right MYOB Product For Your Business

Choosing Right MYOB Product For Business

MYOB offers a variety of products that cater to the needs of different companies and organisations. Some products are designed to meet the needs of small and medium enterprises (SMEs), while others are designed to meet the needs of larger businesses, organisations and corporations.

Most SMEs are likely to find a MYOB product that meets their needs from either the MYOB Essential or AccountRight software families.

Differences Between MYOB Essentials and MYOB AccountRight Software Products?

Both groups of software products are from the same company (MYOB). However, MYOB Essentials products are web-based meaning you don’t have to install actual software or an application on your computer to use them. 

MYOB AccountRight products on the other hand require you to install a specific software product on your computer or server. However, with Accountright, your files can be stored locally on your computer, or in the cloud (or both). MYOB AccountRight products have more features than MYOB Essentials products, and the former allows you to work offline.

Currently, these are the main accounting software products offered by MYOB:

  • MYOB Essentials Connected Ledger
  • MYOB Essentials Accounting
  • MYOB AccountRight Basic
  • MYOB AccountRight Standard

4). MYOB AccountRight Standard

The standard version of the MYOB AccountRight Software is the most popular among businesses.

5). MYOB AccountRight Plus

MYOB AccountRight Plus is very similar to MYOB AccountRight Standard. The main difference between the two is that MYOB AccountRight Plus comes with a dedicated payroll application (either Essentials Payroll or MYOB Payroll). It also comes with a time billing application that allows a company to track and charge time used by subcontractors and employees. This makes job costing easier and much more convenient.

6). MYOB AccountRight Premier

MYOB AccountRight Premier takes things up from where MYOB AccountRight Plus left and goes a step further to include a multi-stock location and multi-currency features which are crucial for businesses in the export and import industry with multiple storage locations.

7). MYOB EXO and MYOB Advanced

Finally, there are the big boys of this product range, MYOB EXO and MYOB Advanced.
