This review is from: MYOB Accountant 11.0 Plus (CD-ROM)
First; I've picked this up for the express purpose of running a small business in the UK.
It supports everything I can think of, and things I didn't to boot; my other half, an accountant, helped me make a decision as to which product to use, stating that to be honest, the product mattered less than the process one went through, though a good product made that process simpler.
The manual is 245 pages; it will not teach you how to run your business, but it will tell you how the software works. I needed the ability to bill for time; I was less concerned about payroll than others might be. Both the payroll and time billing stuff is there, works well, and works as advertised.
The product is stable and reliable; I've not had a crash yet.
It ships with a 30 or so page 'getting started' manual, which I didn't bother reading as I read the main manual. I did so purely because I know so little about accounting. The manual is *good* at hand-holding, and teaches you when you do things and why in a straightforward manner.
I've had a phone call, out of the blue, from the company's support to verify that I'd registered properly and that I was entitled to 30 days of free support. They have also contacted me via e-mail with similar notification. They're pro-active, and they're helpful. They're even nice. :)
So, that's about it. Basically, everything you ever wanted in an accounting package. Or everything I did, at least. I'm told by the other half that I shouldn't ever really need to buy any other package; that only Sage at the high end of the market does more, and the person was relatively surprised by the number of features in the product, and the simplicity which it provided.
I don't use the multiuser features, but should the business grow large enough, the multiuser features are there.
So, thumbs up. Five stars for fulfilling needs and being stable while doing it.
