MYOB Advanced Integration and CustomisationHarness MYOB Advanced’s API to seamlessly connect to add-on products
Customising and adding integrations into your MYOB Advanced site can extend and enhance the capability of your software. Every company is different, facing their own set of challenges and requirements. MYOB Advanced can be customised to suit your specific needs.
MYOB Advanced Integrations
With recent technological innovations, there has been a drastic increase of viable products in the market that can help to further improve the efficiency of your system. From complex Business Intelligence software to detailed inventory management solutions, you have the freedom to pick and choose the products that will improve the efficiency of your business. A trusted and reliable MYOB Partner will only recommend the add-on products that are beneficial to your organisation.
Managing and leveraging these completely independent products requires that they be integrated into your system. That way you can leverage the complete two-way flow of data, while gaining access to the functionality of best-of-breed solutions.
Kilimanjaro Consulting maintain a range of Connected Services partners, who design and maintain add-on products that can enhance MYOB Advanced’s functionality. A free, limited API licence is included with each MYOB Advanced site. This is the simplest way to integrate add-on solutions into your system. If you find that you need more complex integrations to support your company’s needs, this can simply be upgraded to the paid, unlimited API licence.
Via the API, the add-on product will interact with MYOB Advanced through standard web service protocols. Every normal operation of the add-on application is available through the API; however, login specific access can still be configured for additional security and to streamline workflows.
While you can still use these add-on products independent of your ERP system, you will find your efficiency is significantly improved when fully integrated, so you do not have to manually duplicate data across your system.
MYOB Advanced Customisations
In addition to the connected services that can be directly integrated, MYOB Advanced is also natively flexible and customisable. Simple customisations, like the setup of a new report or Generic Inquiry, as well as more complex customisations, such as the addition of a new setup page to capture information for an additional entity, can be created in MYOB Advanced. Your trusted MYOB Partner will leverage their platform expertise to configure these customisations. Every single organisation is different and complex in their own way. For larger, more complex companies it is important that your established workflows are reflected and optimised in your ERP system. The beauty of MYOB Advanced is that it can be totally customised to suit your current processes. It can be constantly upgraded and adapted to fit your organisation’s needs and grow with you into the future.
Requirements for customisation are typically identified during the design phase of your implementation. However, as your organisation continues to grow, there may be the opportunity for more specific functionality that you did not identify during design and implementation. Extra modules can be added to your system as you need it, and they can also be modified to directly suit your needs. MYOB Advanced is a flexible ERP solution and as a result can be shaped and modified to suit your needs.
Other options to assist with data transfer
Integration and customisation are designed so that you have access to the right information when you need it. By setting up an Odata transfer from MYOB Advanced into Excel, you can expose Generic Inquiries to Excel, feeding live data out of your ERP system so that it can be analysed and manipulated providing the basis of your reports. This is especially useful when only your finance team is trained in the use of MYOB Advanced. All staff members can use and benefit from the data it is collecting.

This can be achieved through integration and customisation, truly fitting the software to meet your organisations complex needs.
