Out-of-office access to your data is now a necessity. Find out how you can make it easy.
MYOB Exo is a mature ERP system that fully integrates your financial and business management data. The software has been deployed in over 3,000 mid-tier organisations across Australia and New Zealand, and companies have benefitted from the typically lower cost to implement compared to other mid-market ERP packages.
As an on-premise solution, MYOB Exo requires direct access to the SQL database, usually on your physical in-house server. This is very desirable for companies that:
- Require in-depth integrations across systems,
- Struggle with poor internet connections,
- Leverage especially customised scenarios and have specific functional requirements,
- Are concerned with data security or prefer to be in direct control of their database,
- Have existing IT infrastructure that can be leveraged, saving costs in the short term.
Do you feel hemmed in by your ERP system?
Unfortunately, with all the benefits that come with an on-premise solution, you lack the flexibility to access your data from anywhere but the office. If you set up specific connection protocols, you will often be hampered by VPN connections. True flexibility is being able to access your data anywhere and at any time.
Can I leverage a flexible, mobile MYOB ERP?
There are several options that are available that can increase your organisation’s flexibility and mobility.
MYOB Exo OntheGo
The MYOB Exo OntheGo App is free and is included as part of your main MYOB Exo licence. MYOB Exo OntheGo is designed to give your field staff, like the sales team, access to data from anywhere in real time. Within the app you can: view debtor and contact information, past transactions, activities, tasks, and invoices, as well as raise sales orders and quotes. While there is very little writeback functionality available, it is still a useful tool for those who need out of office visibility of data. MYOB Exo OntheGo is a suitable option for mobile sales teams who travel to meet with clients and require up to date information.
ExoHosted gives MYOB Exo cloud-based mobility
While the MYOB Exo OntheGo app allows you to access certain information in MYOB Exo, hosting your ERP System online with ExoHosted can give you access to the full functionality of your entire system through any web-browser. ExoHosted is a popular option for long-standing MYOB Exo clients who need cloud-based access, allowing their team to work from home or out of the office. As your database is no longer on-premise, you remove the costs of server maintenance and hardware costs. This is instead bundled into a monthly hosting fee.
The best of both worlds with MYOB Advanced
MYOB Advanced is a fully featured cloud-based solution, deployed as a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. It is built to thrive in the cloud, and like ExoHosted, can be accessed from any web-browser at any time. The flexibility and accessibility of MYOB Advanced is wrapped into a convenient monthly subscription, including licences, so you are only paying one simple fee. The absolute accessibility of MYOB Advanced means that whether you are travelling across the country, overseas, or simply working from home, you can make important, informed decisions at any time. Your data is stored safely and securely in the cloud, with systems managed by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
One of the strengths of MYOB Advanced is the power of its automations. MYOB Advanced can process information and reports on fixed schedules, removing the need for your team to do repetitive and mundane work, instead focussing on growing their business. All this information and more can be viewed at anywhere, anytime on the MYOB Advanced OntheGo app. With the app you can also create cases, log expense claims, update contacts or approve documents – so your entire team is constantly connected for greater efficiency with MYOB Advanced.
