Why integrate ACT! and MYOB EXO?

Integrating a front office system such as ACT with a back office system such as MYOB EXO 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.
  • Provide sales staff with the ability to perform back office functions directly from within the front office (e.g. raise a quote) using accurate back office data which is retrieved in real time.

As a result of the above the staff can work more efficiently since dual entry of customer record information is eliminated and customer facing staff have access to customer information without the need to jump between multiple systems.
