30 Oct MYOB AccountRight 2014
By now you will have heard about the new MYOB AccountRight products designed to work in both local or cloud environments. More recently MYOB has released AccountRight Premier – which, although having the same namesake as “classic” MYOB Premier, the product most of you are currently using, it lacks some very important features your accounts team probably still require.
No Multi-Currency is the biggest limitation currently identified, while MYOB themselves still don’t have an ETA on this feature we do expect to see it mid-to-late 2015.
Generally larger sites (5 users or more) have reported sluggish performance of the new MYOB products and it is an area MYOB has been talking about a lot at its partner conferences.
Be aware that MYOB ODBC Direct – the means by which custom reporting and your WMS communicate with MYOB has also been discontinued.
Yikes! I hear you say… no sweat, Datapel have worked with MYOB to ensure your MYOB connected WMS solution works with this new product using a shiny new technology – the MYOB API. We are releasing the new WMS for AccountRight 2014 this coming January. So for those that decide the new AccountRight Premier Essentials is the right move a CROSS-GRADE to our new compatible WMS will be available. More information next issue on changes to WMS Professional and Enterprise for Essentials.
