We are finding ourselves quoting to replace MYOB more and more. It seems the MYOB Retail Manager systems put into various specialist businesses are found wanting when the business owners want industry specific supplier links and reporting. This is where vertical software companies like mine excel. What makes the conversion easier is that we provide a direct bridge between our point of sale / back office software and MYOB – it’s a data bridge which has won us some good business.

I have nothing against MYOB retail Manager. It’s just that in any of our specialist marketplaces we can beat their functionality hands down.
