MYOB continues its 'war on paper' for SMEs

09 Feb 2015

MYOB says it’s continuing its ‘war on paper’ for SMEs with the addition of a free ‘smart bills’ feature for AccountRight clients.

James Scollay, MYOB SME solutions general manager, says smart bills provides clients the ability to capture key data fields from supplier invoices and enter it into the software. 

The data is then fully integrated into the workflow of AccountRight, and the transaction is visible to both the accountant and bookkeeper.

Scollay says, “[Smart bills] allows users to simply email or drag and drop a supplier invoice into AccountRight, which can be used to create a bill, or easily linked to an existing bill.”

It includes Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software, which is designed to save time when it comes to data entry, he says.

Scollay says no other accounting solutions provider has delivered such a feature in Australia and New Zealand.

The smart bills feature was first introduced into Essentials Accounting, MYOB’s entry-level cloud accounting solution, in late 2014.

Scollay says the feature is another way MYOB is working to make its online accounting products more appealing for SMEs.

He says a number of MYOB partners offer seamless migration services from other cloud accounting products to MYOB.

Smart bills is available at no extra cost to MYOB clients using AccountRight Standard and above from later this month.
