Business solutions provider MYOB has launched its new online point-of-sale (POS) solution, MYOB Kounta, making it more efficient for small and medium businesses to run their stores and manage their business.
MYOB Kounta is the first product to emerge from MYOB’s minority stake in the high growth start-up Kounta and another demonstration of the innovation-led strategy from MYOB. It is an online solution for MYOB clients that combines accounting and POS to eliminate compatibility and sync risk between systems.
MYOB General Manager, Connected Services, Andrew Birch said MYOB Kounta integrates the point-of sale system with the entire business in a powerful online platform, making it the simplest and easiest way to manage a busy environment.
“MYOB Kounta is perfect for retail and hospitality businesses of any size, particularly those that require multi-tasking to balance customer service, sales and inventory management. Daily peak periods require fast, accurate order processes.”
“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,” he said.
MYOB AccountRight and MYOB Essentials customers can use their existing MYOB log-in for seamless access to MYOB Kounta, providing they have a datafile in the Cloud. Their accounts can be integrated with the MYOB Kounta system to publish end-of-day journals, accounts receivables and print-outs directly. MYOB Kounta also integrates with other accounting software solutions.
“It is a single, scalable and adaptable POS platform which is simple to set up and run and delivers data securely to business owners anywhere, anytime on any device,” said Mr Birch.
Annemaree Deed, from craft brewer Tuatara Brewing in Wellington, says her company is excited about the new solution and are looking forward to using MYOB Kounta to its full potential.
“It’s as if MYOB Kounta was built for our business and the new direction we want to move in. As we grow, there are easy add-ons to completely customise the POS for our specific needs. In terms of marketing, MYOB Kounta has a really good customer database and loyalty programme – allowing us to drill-down into providing our customers with the best tailored service and rewards possible.
“We’re opening a new microbrewery tasting room in central Wellington at the end of the year, and it’s really comforting to know that as we’re setting up a new business, we can rely on the great support we currently have with MYOB,” said Ms Deed.
