Then a year later, accounting software company MYOB made what was believed to be a substantial (though still minority) investment in Kounta, with MYOB general manager for connected services Andrew Birch saying the partnership would allow his company to provide "a total solution ... fully integrated to eliminate compatibility and syncing risk between systems."
And so it has come to pass. MYOB Kounta is MYOB's new cloud-based POS system, providing full and reliable integration with MYOB AccountRight and MYOB Essentials. The one requirement seems to be that users must opt to store their accounting data in the cloud.
"MYOB Kounta's features include ease of set up, robust order management features, shrinking and wastage tracking, automatic staff commission calculation, on account and lay-by functionality. For the hospitality sector, the special features include table management, split bills and queue busting," said Birch.
"They're really excited about the breadth of functionality this new system provides and love the fact that it integrates with add-ons like Collect Rewards and their existing social media channels.
"This is an ideal system for businesses who don't want to outlay a lot of upfront costs but still want a sophisticated system which helps them improve their overall business efficiency."
MYOB Kounta pricing starts at $50 a month for one register, the same as Kounta.
