MYOB releases first enterprise mobile business app

MYOB EXO OnTheGo enables secure access to on-premise EXO Business suite

Accounting software firm has released its first enterprise mobile business app to provide mid-size business sales staff with the information they need remotely. MYOB EXO OnTheGo enables secure access to on-premise EXO Business remotely.

This allows users to better manage the entire quote and order process, as well as debt collection and general account management, via ‘mobile moments’.

MYOB EXO Business is a comprehensive management system for growing and mid-sized businesses. MYOB general manager, enterprise division, Andrew Birch, said the release of OnTheGo was part of the ongoing development of MYOB’s mid-sized business product suite – EXO Business. “A recent study by the Economic Intelligence Unit showed that 71 per cent of sales teams were spending too much time on administrative tasks and this was reducing sales productivity," he said.

"EXO OnTheGo offers enterprise businesses greater functionality when working anywhere at any time.

"It has been designed specifically to meet the needs of businesses with salespeople or account managers who are working in the field.” Birch said the app would significantly improve customer satisfaction with the speed and efficiency with which suppliers can service them.

"Customers will receive their orders more quickly with less room for error. And with access to real time information, their suppliers can commit to delivery times.” He said the market was increasingly demanding mobile access to ERP systems for querying, order fulfilment and reporting.

“By offering our own mobile solution, developed specifically for MYOB EXO Business, clients will have a single partner providing their entire ERP system – no more having to work with multiple vendors and run the risk of poor integration or communication between them.” The app is simple to download and set up and data is secured with a password login and encrypted communication with the EXO Business system. Once set up, it offers a complete end-to-end order entry process on the go.

Sales staff can create customers and contacts, enter and amend orders, even view inventory and item status in real time – all at the client’s door. Birch said the new innovation was another big step in the MYOB EXO Business system journey,

“Applications like OnTheGo are just part of the picture, as we continue to invest in the ongoing development of EXO Business.” The app utilises the new MYOB EXO API, released in November 2013, enabling third party developers in MYOB’s ecosystem to easily integrate anywhere, anytime applications with MYOB EXO Business. A trial version is available to download for iPad (iOS 7 and above) from the Apple App Store and is compatible with MYOB EXO Business version 8.3 or higher.
