We are delighted to have been named MYOB Partner Choice Add-On 2018 at this year’s Partner Connect Event. This follows a double nomination for Fastest Growing Add-On and MYOB Partner Choice, plus last year’s award of the Fastest Growing Add-On. Here are our three top takeaways from this year’s landmark event.
1. Know what you stand for.
“In a world that’s filled with noise, it’s more important than ever to know what you stand for”.
These were the opening words of Tim Reed, CEO of MYOB, who celebrated 10 years at the helm this year.
Earlier this month, we told the story of MYOB and Receipt Bank: a collaboration that started in early 2017. MYOB is one of the leading cloud-based online accounting solutions in Australasia. We integrate with them to help businesses record expense data on the go.
We are incredibly proud of this partnership. Their aim, of simplifying accountants and bookkeepers’ workflows, eliminating paper and delighting their customers, fits directly in line with our own.
Thank you @MYOB for the Partner Choice Add-On 2018 award! Absolutely thrilled to be represented @MYOBPC in partnership! A huge thank you to all of our Bookkeeping and Accounting firms who help make @MYOB and @ReceiptBank exceptional together! #effortlessbookkeeping #teamorange 🍊 pic.twitter.com/3y7kQxawPl— Vicky Skipp (@Receipts_Vicky) September 21, 2018
We are firm believers that automation is a powerful tool to help businesses across the world focus on what matters. Far from creating robotic experiences, these tools give us more time to focus on the human elements of service: empathy, relationships and achieving personal goals.
That why we’re excited to partner with MYOB to help accountants and bookkeepers spend less time adding numbers to spreadsheets or chasing documents, and more time talking to clients and helping them grow.
2. Build a supportive community.
As much as thought leaders, analysts and software companies talk in terms of global trends, the impact of those changes work on a smaller scale too.
That was one of the key messages of this year's Partner Connect. Success is personal. Your success as an accountant will also be felt by your clients.
We are delighted to be part of the MYOB community, hearing success stories from delegates, getting to know our MYOB partners and celebrating the ecosystem.
Our warmest congratulations go out to:

We now count thousands of accountants and bookkeepers around the world sharing stories and experiences every day.
3. APPROACH CHANGE WITH A GROWTH MINDSET.
The accounting and bookkeeping industry is changing rapidly. Throughout this growth, it is essential we approach the changes with a long-term view of its potential.
Accountants and bookkeepers are the natural advisor to small businesses when it comes to managing the bottom line. But with the advent of this era of technology, there is more need than ever for clear advice on how this can help businesses succeed.
Accountants must lead the implementation of change for small businesses. Cloud-based technology like MYOB and Receipt Bank can change everything from profitability, efficiency and quality of life. To make the most of this change, professionals will need to apply a growth mindset to the various options available. If you can work out how to use this technology to help your clients achieve their goals, you can build stronger relationships built on long term, life-changing value.
