Overall Satisfaction with MYOB

MYOB is being used for accounts, invoices and the like. The program is very slow to load and has many design and implementation flaws. It is cumbersome and difficult to use.

Be very careful when choosing MYOB Account Right. When Microsoft updates Windows - MYOB's Account Right will no longer work - won't open. ALL the fixes provided by MYOB fail to work as well - I have tried everything they suggest - all I get is error messages.

As a result my business is shutdown because of MYOB being unable to process orders and produce invoices etc. I am now getting the run around with tech support transferring me and making me wait and wait for someone.

It is an appalling situation.

  • Invoices
  • Purchase Orders
  • Is far too slow for business use, takes far too long to open and process inputs.
  • Has cost me a lot of sales over the years
  • Has cost us a small fortune paying extra fees to our accountants because of its very poor record keeping and features
MYOB is not a very good program (technically speaking), is far too slow and cumbersome, has hardly changed in 20 years, is not well supported and is far too expensive for what it is - don't buy it or use it - it is a waste of time and money and will let you down.
MYOB may be okay for a very small or hobby business, otherwise it is not at all professional.
