With the growth of technological innovation, there has been a proliferation of 3rd Party add-on or companion products for both the MYOB Exo and MYOB Advanced suite of products. Just as iPhones and iPads have competition from Androids, new and competitive products and devices are becoming available within the ERP space at much better price-points for SMEs.

However, technology nowadays is now being geared towards efficiency, and these less expensive devices are capable of far more than their costly predecessors.

We offer one word of caution – not all 3rd party products are equal! These applications usually fall broadly into one of the following six categories:

  1. Products that have been developed for MYOB Premier, and have been modified or adapted into an MYOB Exo or MYOB Advanced add-on.
  2. Custom-developed applications. These have been developed for the particular needs of a single client and have now been commercialised or made available to the general Exo or Advanced client base.
  3. Generic products that are not integrated into either MYOB Exo or MYOB Advanced, but are sold with the promise of “integration” down the track. Webstores are a favourite in this category.
  4. Products that have excellent functionality, but with little or no support from the software house that developed them.
  5. Genuine MYOB add-on products developed by people that understand the Exo and Advanced database and functionality BUT are NOT in a position to provide support and on-going development.
  6. Genuine MYOB add-on products developed by people that understand the MYOB Exo database and functionality AND are in a position to provide support and ongoing development.

We have countless examples of clients being “burned” by purchasing so-called “integrated” products from high-pressure salespeople, only to find that they only create more harm than good.

If you are considering a 3rd Party add-on to your MYOB Exo or MYOB Advanced system, please remember that as your MYOB advisors, it would make sense to give us a call and ask our opinion. A simple phone call costs nothing but will potentially save you tens of thousands of dollars.

Here is our certified list of MYOB Connected Services that are fully integrated with MYOB Exo and MYOB Advanced.
