When should you consider MYOB Exo Performance Optimisation?

- Operate with a large (10GB or larger) database,

- Recommend: Recommendations for quick wins. Sandbox testing and user feedback.
- Action and Assess: Prioritise recommendations. Implementation of quick wins into your live database. A cycle of Sandbox modifications, testing and implementation into Live.
- Final Report: Recommendations report for full optimisation.

What if my business needs more functionality
There are many ways to improve efficiency in your business. Modern economic environments pressure businesses to digitise their processes and adopt smart and innovative solutions. The time to innovate is now, and we are here to assist you along the journey of climbing the technology mountain. MYOB Exo is a powerful solution that can be customised to your business needs.
The MYOB Exo Cloud Solution
MYOB Exo has long been established as on-premise software, limiting your system access from outside your office to a VPN. However, the team of experts at Kilimanjaro Consulting have developed ExoHosted as a cloud-based solution for MYOB Exo. By hosting your MYOB Exo Business software in the Cloud, you can be sure that your server is in a highly reliable environment managed by our hosting division. ExoHosted combines the classic MYOB Exo Business software with our cloud-based technology, allowing you to take advantage of uninterrupted, 24/7 service. It gives your team on-the-go access to MYOB Exo from any device, anywhere. The fixed monthly hosting fee will ease your cash flow and reduce operational costs.
Integration and customisation for MYOB Exo
As businesses grow, they become more complex and develop a competitive advantage over others in their industry. It is impossible to develop one single system that can manage the varied processes of every organisation in the market. Each complex company requires configuration, customisation, and sometimes even a bespoke solution. Out-of-the-box systems simply can’t do the job.
One of MYOB Exo’s strengths lies in its integration with third-party (add-on) products. These products are designed to enhance the functionality of your system, extending and supporting native functionality so that you can make better decisions. Integrating these products into your system removes the need for manual data duplication and reduces overall error rates.
Build a truly custom MYOB Exo system for your organisation by integrating add-on products that meet your specific, additional requirements. Kilimanjaro Consulting recommends and supports integrations with the following connected services:
- Phocas or BI4Cloud for Business Intelligence and Reporting
- NETSTOCK for inventory management
- eveXso for warehouse management
- expense manager or Dataline for Accounts Payable automation and expense claims
- ezyCollect for automated Accounts Receivables
- Dealers Online for an integrated B2B website, and
- Timetrak for job management and time capturing
The integrator for MYOB Exo – SynKit
If you already use a 3rd party web-based application for specific functionality but want it integrated into MYOB Exo, then SynKit is your solution. Developed by the experts at Kilimanjaro Consulting, SynKit leverages the application’s open API to push and pull live data between your two systems. With SynKit, you can take advantage of unique integrations that your competition will be unable to access, such as:
- HubSpot or Salesforce as a best-of-breed CRM,
- Shopify, Magento, or Woo Commerce for your e-commerce platform,
- SmartFreight to automate and streamline distribution and shipping, or
- simPRO or AroFlo for job management, time capture, and field services.
SynKit can integrate MYOB Exo with any 3rd party application with an open API. Contact our team to learn more.
