MYOB to make the most of OfficeMax Advantage

Media Release: September 13, 2005

MYOB to make the most of OfficeMax Advantage

As a complete accounting software solutions provider, MYOB recognises the importance of making accounting solutions more accessible to more people. Leading office products retailer OfficeMax, is making this possible by becoming the latest reseller to incorporate MYOB accounting software into their complete office product range.

OfficeMax is one of the top three office products companies in the world with an annual total revenue of US$9billion and an annual New Zealand revenue of NZ$300m.

While OfficeMax is global; their thinking is local, according to MYOB Channel Manager Rhys Brown.

"No one in the New Zealand office products market buys more locally manufactured product than OfficeMax."

"By becoming a MYOB reseller, OfficeMax not only recognises the needs of local businesses, but also the advantage of adding a credible, reliable product and brand to their range," says Rhys Brown.

This aligns perfectly with the OfficeMax Advantage - offering price, range, service and ordering advantages says OfficeMax Product Manager, Chris Espriu.

"The adoption of MYOB products into the OfficeMax product offering is a logical strategic initiative."

"SMEs are a huge part of our business and are also the key users of the MYOB product range," says Chris Espriu.

"By becoming part of the MYOB reseller network we are ensuring that our customers continue to receive a complete office product offering, including a comprehensive range of accounting software. We have always had good support from MYOB and have had great experience with the product."

On 1st July 2005, Boise Office Solutions in New Zealand changed its name to OfficeMax.

OfficeMax employs 41,000 people throughout Australia, Canada and the United States - including 1,000 employees in New Zealand.

While the OfficeMax brand is new to the New Zealand market, the OfficeMax business has had decades of service to NZ organisations through brands Boise Office Solutions, Blue Star Office Productions, OTC Workplace Partners, Whitcoulls Office Products, Mitrotonix, Hollands Office Furniture and General Packaging.
