MYOB Advanced – Streamlining operations for Government organisations in the cloud

Download now

Government departments and public organisations depend on secure and compliant data in combination with a robust suite of tools to manage their operations and reporting.

Why make the change to a connected business management platform?

Government organisations face unique complexities and compliance requirements. Small-business accounting software or ill-suited systems create efficiency bottlenecks and take your focus away from core operations and projects. Common pain points that your public sector organisation may be facing are:

  • Poor visibility and integrity of financial data,
  • Lack of timely reporting to boards, management, or other stakeholders,
  • Data and compliance management split across multiple disconnected systems,
  • Inability to accurately plan and budget over long timeframes or complex projects,
  • No transparent audit trail,
  • Mistakes arising from an over-reliance on manual processes, or
  • A growing team that is becoming increasingly difficult to onboard and manage.

MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) is a modern, powerful, secure business management platform that can be configured to meet complex government and public sector needs.

What is MYOB Advanced?

MYOB Advanced is a cloud-based Business Management Platform localised by MYOB and powered by Acumatica – the world’s fastest-growing ERP system. It is hosted in Australia. It provides government organisations with a comprehensive set of tools for financial management, auditability and governance, customer service, and more. The software is designed to streamline business processes, automate tasks and other business events, and provide real-time insights into key performance indicators (KPIs). It suits large, complex organisations and can be customised to meet your specific requirements.

MYOB Advanced benefits

There are many reasons why MYOB Advanced is the best ERP for government organisations:

  • Build a single source of truth for all data and compliance across your organisation,
  • Identify more efficient areas, especially regarding taxpayer/ratepayer funding,
  • Achieve a clear and precise picture of operational health,
  • A fully transparent audit trail,
  • Streamlined and competitive procurement and bidding process,
  • Support to complete projects on time and in budget,
  • Improve collaboration and communication within and between different agencies/departments,
  • Improved service for your public communities and members,
  • Automatically update to the latest tax and regulatory changes.

Importance of local software

There are many benefits to using a system that has been designed for your local region. All the idiosyncrasies of doing business in Australia and New Zealand will be familiar to you but not to overseas vendors. Their systems are not built to reflect the complexities that a local provider is more familiar with. MYOB Advanced has been specifically customised to meet the needs of Australian and New Zealand organisations and comply with security requirements.

MYOB is a stable and reliable local vendor. Your investment in MYOB Advanced supports a mainstay in the ANZ market instead of going to an offshore company.

MYOB Advanced features

The key features of MYOB Advanced for public sector organisations are:

  • Financial management
  • Customer service
  • Inventory Management
  • Project accounting
  • MYOB Advanced Mobile app

Financial Management

MYOB Advanced has the financial tools you need to create board reports easily and track revenue across multiple sources and entities. It has support for multi-currency, multiple languages, and complex organisational structures. MYOB Advanced collects data in real time across your organisation. Dashboards and reports are automatically updated so you can see the clearest, most accurate picture of your organisational or departmental health.

Customer Service

MYOB Advanced provides a 360-degree view of your customer activities and records. Track your clients, customers or community members within a single integrated database to get a clear picture and maintain auditability. Take your customer service to the next level with automated activities based on the critical customer information stored in your MYOB Advanced Customer Relationship Manager (CRM).

Inventory Management

Improve tracking and management of your inventory, supply chain, and distribution with MYOB Advanced. Manage stock across multiple sites and locations with full visibility. Generate Purchase Orders (PO) for accurate and visible purchasing tracking.

Project Accounting

Projects-based accounting is a key feature for public sector organisations. Ensure every dollar is being spent effectively and appropriately. Track funding sources across multiple projects and receive automatic alerts when projects are at risk of going over budget to help keep everything on track.


Payroll and Workforce Management

With the integrated MYOB Advanced Payroll (formerly People) module, you can bring HR, operations, and payroll into one place. MYOB Advanced Payroll is a fully compliant all-in-one management tool that calculates finances and labour costs, analyses trends, and creates detailed reports – all in real-time and integrated into MYOB Advanced Business. It handles multiple pay groups and frequencies, leave requests and approvals, and automated onboarding.

MYOB Advanced Workforce Management

Bring onboarding, rostering, timesheets, and payroll together in one seamless, automated solution. MYOB Advanced Workforce Management is an add-on module to MYOB Advanced Payroll that improves the efficiency of even more of your administrative processes.

Mobile app

Access MYOB Advanced from any browser or via the MYOB Advanced OntheGo app. Team-based collaboration improves dramatically when working in the cloud. You can work knowing the data you are using is up to date and consistent across different teams and workflows – no matter where you sign in.

The integration of these modules within MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) promotes data consistency, reduces manual data entry, and supports informed decision-making across different areas of the institution. It allows for seamless sharing of information among departments, leading to improved collaboration and efficiency.


Overcoming the roadblocks of ERP implementation

A successful MYOB Advanced implementation relies on managing risk. Government organisations should be aware of the 3 types of risk:

  1. Software risk
  2. Implementer risk
  3. Self-Inflicted risk

MYOB Advanced is a reliable, stable, well-supported, powerful ERP system. It is well established as a good fit for the public sector and government and has shown a strong return on investment for other organisations. To manage implementer risk, engage the services of a trusted, experienced, low-risk implementation partner.

Self-inflicted risk is perhaps the hardest aspect of an implementation for government organisations to manage. Typically, the industry is held back by tight budgets, a lack of confidence and willingness to invest in operational solutions, and time constraints. It can be difficult to justify the allocation of funds to a new implementation as it takes the focus away from core operations or projects. However, government organisations require stringent compliance and auditability. Any compromise in satisfying these requirements can jeopardise your future success. MYOB Advanced lets you share accurate, useful information quickly with total control over business costs and key functions. The efficiency and accountability gains from MYOB Advanced implementation will pay dividends for the future of your organisation.

The Kilimanjaro Consulting team can help you manage the three areas of risk, ensuring a successful implementation and a strong return on your investment.

Museum of Technology and Transport (MOTAT)

The Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) is a significant site for the technological history of Auckland.
