We’ve just wrapped up our capital city roadshow activity and wow, what a fantastic time we had. With numbers that exceeded anything we’d done before the buzz around MYOB and our cloud products is just awesome.

We were joined on the road by around 28 exhibitors (find out who joined us in our previous roadshow blog post) who really went to town and did all sorts of neat and novel things to engage with and talk to our MYOB partners.

AccountRight 2014.1 Installer

We’ve taken a big step in keeping AccountRight installation hassle free for end users clients, by making the process fast and easy. Our ultimate goal is to make updating AccountRight as easy as updating your internet browser.

The next release of AccountRight 2014.1 will have two, a client and a server installer. The client installer which is a lighter version will be called PC installer. The PC installer is a streamlined installer that’s 50% lighter than previous AccountRight installers, and takes just seconds to complete the installation.

The API will be installed with AccountRight 2014.1 using the PC installer. The Add-on Connector (API) will be installed for users to connect add-ons to AccountRight. A new icon will show up in the Windows taskbar if the Add-on connector (API) is installed.

Tanda is our first rostering solution on the API platform. Tanda is a cloud based time and attendance system to help cut down on payroll processing time, record accurate staff data and easily build rosters. Using a time clock in your business, Tanda collects employee arrival and departure times to eliminate time theft, time waste and significantly reduce manual data entry.

We asked some questions to Tanda about the integration and their experience with MYOBapi .

How was it like working with MYOBapi?

The MYOB API is well documented and easy to integrate with. To make it even easier there are a bunch of libraries out there for various languages to simplify the integration process.

PHP and AccountRight Live - Local

Kicking off the new year we noticed an increase in developers asking how to consume our MYOB AccountRight Live API via PHP locally (that is not using the cloud API).

We have a PHP sample on GitHub that was built just on a year ago (we’ll get this updated) that showed how to get contacts, but it’s a little out of date.

Exploring Timely - appointment scheduling

I’m really stoked to sit and write this blog post. In November 2012 I joined MYOB and and one of the very first calls I made was to the guys from Timely to talk to them about APIs, accounting platforms and integrations. It took a while for us to get our ducks in a row, but I’m so happy to announce that Timely is now fully integrated on our MYOB AccountRight Live API and we are exploring more opportunities with them for our Live Accounts API.

So lets crack into this & tell you more about Timely. We asked Timely CTO, Andrew Schofield, to tell us about the scheduling solution and how it plays nicely with MYOB:

Who is Timely & what do you do?
