Xact Link for ACT! and MYOB User Manual


Why integrate ACT! and MYOB

Integrating a front office system such as ACT! with a back office system such as MYOB serves the following purposes:

  • Provide customer facing staff with controlled access to the financial information needed for them to provide a higher level of service.
  • Allow customer information to flow from the front office to the back office without the need for dual entry of data.

As a result of the above your business can operate more efficiently as dual entry of customer record information is eliminated and front-line staff have access to customer information without the need to jump between multiple systems.
