Which business management software is best?

While the above table gives a snapshot of the availability of some key features, it doesn’t give an in-depth look at the full functionality level in each of these areas, and importantly, how that matches up to your business’ needs.

It must be said, however, that MYOB EXO is often seen as the strongest contender in the game. MYOB is a long established world leader in the ERP market and it is the largest selling mid-sized ERP in Australia & NZ – they’re not a new or start-up business so you can rely on their longevity and stability as a provider for your business.

MYOB also has a strong network of trusted, authorised, local partners and third party MYOB developers (like us here at Horizon Business Systems!) who can offer local support and training and help you design custom add-ons specific to your business needs.
