We are delighted to be working with MYOB on this new cloud-enabled ERP solution,” says Glenn Gore, head of technology, APAC at AWS. “AWS is pleased that MYOB’s enterprise customers will be benefitting from the flexibility, security and agility of the AWS cloud.”
Advanced is based on a solution developed by US company Acumatica, the provider of cloud-based ERP and financial software. Late last year, MYOB had taken a minority stake in Acumatica, with a seat on the company’s board.
Birch says the priorities of business owners when moving to the cloud were a key consideration during the product’s development. These priorities include functionality and cost, security, consistently high service levels and data sovereignty.
