New Zealand accounting software provider MYOB has unveiled a range of updates to its Mac accounting suite, aimed at Apple's Mac, iPhone and iPad users.

The company has also announced the release of AccountEdge Basic, available to Kiwi businesses for the first time.

AccountEdge is MYOB’s long-standing range of solutions for Apple lovers, from 'anywhere, anytime' online solutions to advanced multiple user functionality, the products provide Mac accounting systems that enable SMEs to track GST, sales, payroll, inventory and time billing.

Key product updates in the latest release includes integration with the latest iOS devices, retina display optimisation, the ability to create a new job and add new customers, quotes and scope of works on iPhone or iPad; and the option to securely backup data in Dropbox.

“AccountEdge is developed especially for our Mac clients to easily manage invoicing, expenses, GST, inventory and payroll on the platform they love – harnessing the simplicity and power of Mac OSX," says Tim Reed, CEO, MYOB.

“It’s optimised for Mac features such as retina display and includes a mobile application to make business life easier for those on the go.

"One of the great benefits is you can now throw away your log book and track mileage on your iPhone or iPad then sync that back to AccountEdge.

"What’s more, you can filter expenses by vehicle or employee before adding to your reports and invoices.

“In addition, the latest refresh incorporates more detailed security options to make it easier to control user access, and includes secure offsite backups of your data directly to Dropbox.”
