What happened to MYOB?
For those of you who have a first or second-hand history with MYOB and its products, all this Acclivity talk may seem confusing. Not to fear, we've compiled a chronology of events to assist.
- 2001 - MYOB Ltd. (an Australian public company) decides to sell their Canadian business to Intuit Canada.
- 2002 - Intuit Canada decides to sunset MYOB Accounting Plus for Windows
- 2003 - Intuit Canada decides to sunset their Canadian Mac products and discontinue support. Many thousands of customers left to make difficult decisions.
- 2005 - MYOB US (a wholly-owned subsidiary of MYOB Ltd.) is purchased by two of its managers, Tom Nash and Scott Davisson, who reorganize the company under the name Acclivity. Acclivity has the rights to sell MYOB Mac and Windows products in the United States only.
- 2008 - Acclivity enters into an agreement with MYOB Ltd., which allows them to autonomously develop their own Mac products globally (resold in AU/NZ by MYOB) and Windows products in North America. Acclivity now has the option to enter Canada, should they so choose. Hint: they chose.
- 2009 - Acclivity launches the completely localized AccountEdge for Mac in Canada. Many happy Acclivity employees. Parties with toasts.
- 2010 - Acclivity launches AccountEdge for Windows, a full-featured upgrade for the Mac product and introduces integrated Canadian credit card processing.
Acclivity did not take the decision to enter Canada lightly. We would not have done so without every intention to build a reliable, sustainable business. We thank all of our loyal customers, partners and resellers for their warm, enthusiastic support.
