MYOB Advanced People – Payroll and Workforce Management

The latest cloud-based payroll and HR solution from MYOB that integrates with MYOB Advanced

MYOB Advanced People and Workforce Management is a modern, cloud-based payroll and HR solution. It can be run as a standalone platform or integrated as an MYOB Advanced Business module.

What is MYOB Advanced People

MYOB Advanced People is the payroll module of choice for more complex Australian and New Zealand businesses. It is fully integrated with MYOB Advanced Business to keep all your data up to date in one place and in real-time.

MYOB Advanced People is built on the platform of the world’s fastest-growing ERP system – Acumatica. In addition, MYOB has added their own local expertise so that you can leverage this powerful, purpose-built payroll solution for your business. As it is cloud-based, you have access to your data anywhere and at any time. MYOB Advanced People is designed to be flexible and customisable so that it can meet your needs now, without holding you back in the future.

MYOB Advanced People Cloud Solutions are STP compliant.

Like all of MYOB’s payroll software, MYOB Advanced People is Single Touch Payroll (STP) compliant. By enabling STP, salaries and wages, PAYG and superannuation information is reported directly to the ATO at the time of each payday and this saves time at the End of the Financial year. It is no longer necessary to provide PAYG Payment Summaries; the information will already be available for your staff through myGov. Overall, this reduces the number of interactions with the ATO as well as reducing the duplication of data.

Who will benefit from MYOB Advanced People?

If you are already taking advantage of Australia and New Zealand’s favourite ERP, MYOB Advanced, an integrated payroll module is a perfect fit. MYOB Advanced People can be included in your subscription without disrupting your regular business functions.

The benefits of an integrated ERP system are realised when information flows between the different functions and modules, reducing duplication of effort and manual data entry, and providing real-time business insights.

However, MYOB Advanced People can also be a standalone payroll solution. It is a good introduction for your organisation to take its first steps into the cloud. Your payroll team can enjoy the cloud-based flexibility, with tax information kept up to date in real-time and the ability to automate different tasks.

Every member of your organisation will reap the benefits of MYOB Advanced People, thanks to the Employee Self-Service features. Your staff are able to manage their own details and submit leave requests on-line without troubling your busy payroll staff.

What is Workforce Management?

MYOB’s Workforce Management solution complements MYOB Advanced People, providing an end-to-end ERP system for your organisation.

With the addition of Workforce Management to the MYOB Advanced platform, your organisation can connect payroll with critical upstream processes for greater efficiency and enhanced decision making.

Mobile Employee Self-Service

A mobile app completely manages all employee self-service functions. Clock in and out, record expenses, manage personal details, swap and accept shifts, view rosters and make leave requests from a single point, with data flowing in real-time across the Workforce Management platform.


Sign contracts, forms, company policies, capture digital signatures, and collect information such as Bank account details, next of kin, address details, and more. Onboard new employees simply and easily, with data fed directly into MYOB Advanced Payroll.


Leverage a modern web-based rostering platform, with the simple easy to use User Interface. “Smart Roster” automation matches shift requirements to your team’s certifications and skills so that you are always appropriately staffed.


Team leaders can quickly approve expenses from the mobile app. The incoming expense data can easily be exported to the finance team, along with supporting documents and photos.

Business Intelligence

Get a real-time view of the sales effectiveness of your retail workforce. Sales data can be directly imported into a BI dashboard. These reports can cover data across locations and time periods, with detailed insight into the hours, costs, sales, and efficiency of your team.


The Workforce Management app boasts facial recognition technology, along with GPS location to ensure accurate time capture. Data captured in Timesheets is integrated directly to MYOB Advanced People, simplifying your payroll process.

Leave Management

Configure a Public Holiday calendar specific to your organisation, with blackout periods supported. Confirmed employee leave automatically flows through to Rostering.

Implementation and Pricing

We follow a tried and tested, structured methodology to guide you through the implementation process. We work to reduce risk in all forms so that your system will work exactly as it needs to when you go live. Our philosophy is that you need to become self-sufficient in your new system.

As a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, MYOB Advanced People is charged as a monthly subscription, that bundles together licensing, hardware, and hosting. You can also scale your subscription up and down when necessary, allowing the system to grow with your business. A one-time implementation fee, which is charged separately from the monthly subscription, covers the installation and configuration of the software to your organisation’s specific requirements. This charge also includes the initial training for your team, ensuring they are confident of using the software when they go live.
