The accounting workhorse of NZ
This program has been around for years. The company behind it has grown over that time to include many options - and to re-brand the package. Here in NZ, it became the standard by which others are compared. MYOB acquired CA-Systems - a common chartered accounting package (which we have personally used since 1998). It's a very different program for a different audience - but it does mean that many accountants deal with the same firm - and the newer versions are designed to work with newer versions of MYOB's end-user package.
The package has had new features added from time to time - but has been entrenched in the traditional accounting program structure - such as rolling over to a new financial year and losing all of your history. However the latest versions are not only available to work over the Internet, but they've upgraded to a newer software platform - and taken advantage of the opportunity to update the way it works. This includes a very simple version, as well as more traditional products. Sadly the desktop product is no longer sold - it's now licensed as cloud software is.
With so many local firms using it, support is very widespread. Many places offer classes, and support people offer their services. If support people come from a technical background, they may not offer the depth of knowledge an accountant can offer, but there's always plenty to choose from.
