MYOB and Manaccom Sign Agreement

Jul 10, 2009

ASX RELEASE – Friday, 10 July 2009

Ready for the new financial year, leading software distributor, Manaccom, has today scored a major coup by signing a distribution deal with MYOB in a move that will see MYOB’s award- winning business management software become even more readily available throughout Australia.

Manaccom managing director Ian Mackay said the MYOB distribution deal, which involves selected retailers, will be a welcome addition to Manaccom’s growing range of dedicated business products, which are all designed to help small to medium-sized enterprises run more successfully. “Like MYOB, Manaccom is a long-established Australian- based IT company with a track record of helping businesses, especially when it comes to relieving the administrative burden, so they can get on with the job,” Mr Mackay said. “It’s all about providing business solutions. MYOB specialises in accounting, payroll, tax and retail POS solutions, and this will complement Manaccom’s growing suite of business products, including our recently launched MiniMint, which provides businesses with a portable payment solution – even allowing mobile phones to process credit card payments.” Mr Mackay said the MYOB agreement will further broaden Manaccom’s diverse product range base, which also features many Internet security, entertainment and educational titles. The MYOB distribution agreement comes hot on the heels of Manaccom being awarded ‘Software Supplier of the Year’ at last month’s Derni Retailer Awards, featuring some of Australia’s largest national retailers, including Harvey Norman and Domayne. MYOB has business management solutions for both Microsoft and Apple Mac OS X operating systems.
