Across three businesses I am involved with I strategically use a different cloud accounting system to keep my knowledge of each up-to-date. In Australia, the most used, genuine, pure cloud solutions are:

  • Xero;
  • MYOB Essentials; and
  • QuickBooks Online;

Across this video series I hope to highlight the Pros and Cons of each to help people better understand the systems, their usability and comparative market position (in terms of function and form).

1. MYOB Essentials – Copy & Pasting ABNs fail

January 5, 2019

In this video I question the User eXperience design of MYOB Essentials voicing my frustration with a regular data entry process: copying and pasting ABNs from invoices or the ABN look-up site

2. Bank Feeds to Bank Rec – Xero v QBo v MYOB Essentials

January 29, 2019

In this video I compare the three system across 5 criteria I feel differentiates them

3. QBo & Supplier Batch Payments eeek!

12 February 2019

I have to admit, I’m a big fan of QBo, BUT this is one area that really highlights that it is an American product being brought to the Australian market. In this video I complain about the functionality (or lack thereof) within QBo around supplier batch payments.

4. Budgets

19 February 2019

In this video I compare the Budgeting functions across QBo, Xero and MYOB Essentials. The reality is, none of the products have it nailed, yet. I explain why.
