How we started
MYOB was started in Australia in 1991 and was one of the first businesses to recognise the unique needs of small-to-medium-sized enterprises and equip them with powerful, accessible and affordable business management systems. From the outset, MYOB solutions were aimed at alleviating an increasing administrative burden and giving business owners the necessary insights to run their businesses more successfully. From day one, MYOB has maintained a constant focus on providing quality client support to ensure businesses gain maximum return from their investment.
MYOB began as both a software developer and re-publisher in the Asia-Pacific region. Success in helping empower business owners was recognised through rapid growth in clients and revenue. This growth was fuelled by recommendations from existing clients and this remains an important source of business today – testament to the quality of MYOB products and client service. In 1996 MYOB received the prestigious Telstra and Australian Governments’ Small Business of the Year Award, an awards program that MYOB now sponsors to support and encourage today’s business owners.
Working with accountants
In 1997 MYOB extended its strategic vision to include specific solutions for accounting practices. This strategy was pursued to assist accounting practices with both their internal operations and their interface with their own clients, many of whom use MYOB software. The successful merger with accountants’ system provider Solution 6 in 2004 solidified MYOB’s position as a leading international source of the very best in solutions for owner-operated businesses and accounting practices.
MYOB is now the leading provider of business systems to small and medium sized businesses in Australia and New Zealand, delivering business solutions to more than 700,000 businesses and accounting firms in the Asia-Pacific region. Throughout 17 years of solid growth, the client-centric vision of the company remains the same today as the day its founders began their quest to empower business owners with products and services to make business life easier and more rewarding. Now operating in five countries across Asia-Pacific, it’s an international team that powers the business, but it’s the local knowledge and expertise that delivers the edge for our clients.
