Beginning its life serving accounting firms across Australia and New Zealand, MYOB Greentree now serves the needs of businesses across the world. The early success of MYOB Greentree came down to the gap it filled for mid-sized businesses. The only options available were a ‘lite’ (but costly) version of large-scale enterprise software, or functionally limited small business software.
MYOB Greentree was a DOS-based system. It became apparent that the existing system would soon be an unsuitable vehicle for delivering on MYOB Greentree’s goal of becoming the powerful, configurable ERP platform of choice for mid-sized businesses.
The existing options in the market could be configurable but ran into issues when future upgrades were released, effectively locking businesses in to a particular version.
So, MYOB Greentree began the search for a new system.
When weighing up potential solutions, MYOB Greentree looked through the lens of its three pillars that underlined how they define success: sheer functionality, the ability to configure and customize, and continuous deployment. After careful consideration, they decided to move from Delphi over a SQL database to the JADE platform.
The JADE development platform made it possible for MYOB Greentree to deliver more functionality than customers had come to expect, process millions of transactions for thousands of companies every week, and release regular upgrades to its highly configurable software in a way that respected and preserved custom development.
"JADE allows MYOB’s partners to customise and further add value to MYOB Greentree by developing solutions specific to customers’ needs. This is made much quicker and easier using the JADE platform than would otherwise be possible thereby adding additional value to our products and services and ultimately saving time and effort for customers."
"The continuous investment that Jade is making in the platform is one of the reasons why MYOB Greentree originally selected JADE. These regular updates enable MYOB Greentree to stay current with technology and security requirements keeping their products secure and at the forefront of innovation,"
Paul Munro, MYOB Greentree's Platform Delivery Manager.
