MYOB Takes PC World Readers Choice For Nine Years In A Row

MYOB has won PC World magazine Readers’ Choice Award 2004 in its category for the ninth year in a row, confirming its place as the leading supplier of small business accountancy software in New Zealand.

“This is another vote of confidence in the quality of MYOB software,” says David Lowe, MYOB General Manager. “While we have now won this award for the past nine years, we do not take it for granted and are thrilled that our users have again voted MYOB as their favourite software provider.”

“It’s no accident that MYOB has won this award again, as we are constantly innovating and introducing new products and services. Our aim is to meet, and then exceed our customers’ expectation,” says David Lowe.

MYOB is New Zealand's leading provider of accounting and business management software for small to medium-sized businesses. MYOB offers a range of services and solutions that help businesses manage and overcome key business challenges - such as getting paid, cash flow management, payment processing, and stock management. It is also a leading supplier to NZ accounting practices with practice management, client accounting and tax software.

The PC World Readers’ Choice Awards were decided by subscribers to PC World Magazine who voted via an online system administered by independent third party Touchpoint. Readers were asked to name their favourite hardware, software, and services of the previous 12 months.

The PC World Readers’ Choice Awards have been running for 15 years and are New Zealand’s largest survey of consumer attitudes on computer issues.
