Well funny for some, awfully tragic for others….
In my web travels I stumbled upon this blog, announcing (or not quite) MYOB’s on-demand SME accounting product Business Basics Online.The announcement goes;
we’ve kept a watchful eye…., particularly through our strong relationships with NZ banks, who have kept us alert to the dramatic increase in use of Internet Banking over the last twelve months.
So now the time seems right for us to present MYOB BusinessBasics Online
(in other words Xero et all scares the hell out of us and we’ve got to react as fast as possible)
Cool I thought, MYOB have finally got with the times, SaaS is fun and I like commenting on this stuff.
But in the craziest turn of the story, check out this link – www.businessbasicsonline.co.nz. Yes indeed, the URL links straight to Xero.
Someone at MYOB corporate HQ is going to be really, really uptight about this one.
So far Xero 1, MYOB 0, and if this start is anything to go by, it could just prove the SaaS debacle of the year.
