MYOB’s integrated employee management tool, MYOB Team, has launched to MYOB AccountRight and MYOB Essentials subscribers (excluding Essentials Payroll).

MYOB Team offers new team management functionality designed specifically for industries such as retail, as it flows directly into the customer’s payroll software, at no additional cost. 

Complementing existing features such as time-tracking for mobile and tablet, easy rostering and three-time capture modes, new features include geolocation for team members on the go with time tracking data shared directly to payroll software in real time.

MYOB head of product for small business, Dale Dixon said the additional features will allow small businesses in retail to manage their staff easily and quickly with less need for manual data entry, reducing risk of error.

“Not only do the features we’ve released in MYOB Team make it much easier to manage teams of employees, having that information sent directly to payroll software means the business owner and their accountant or bookkeeper can easily access crucial information without data entry or double handling,” he said.

“The solution saves time by creating rosters easily and reduces payroll error with time tracking and timesheet approval. It’s a useful integrated employee management tool, particularly for businesses that rely on shift work.

“MYOB Team is customisable to cater for specific requirements, and the information captured can be shared with employees and employers, as well as the business’ accountant or bookkeeper.”

Employee onboarding and leave management are planned for future releases.
