Hi Bluebay and welcome to the Manager Forum.
Delacor has given some good advice here.
Before Manager, we were using MYOB V19 (I still have an old file on the computer to refer to old transactions, just in case).
We trialed Manager using one company that has low transaction rates for a single month. I imported customers and supplier records from MYOB and double keyed all orders for the first few months of the FY.
Within that time our book keeper visited and checked out the program. She has been using MYOB for well over a decade (every day). She is rather an expert on it. She loved it, but hated the Cloud version - it was far too slow. The contrast to Manager was stark - at one point we had three people inputting data into the one business file at the same time. There was no lag that we could determine.
She told me to dump MYOB and to move all my business financials over to Manager. Of course it’s a new system, but it’s relatively easy and most things are logical. If you have a problem that you can’t find answered in the guides this forum is full of people who are happy to help point you in the right direction.
I am not a skilled user, but I am really pleased to be using Manager. There’s really not much it can’t do, and development is occurring all the time.
If you are using the Cloud version, you can set your accountant up with limited authority to access the system (eg ‘look, but not touch’) so he or she can investigate transactions and set up reports for himself. My accountant is very happy with what Manager does for him.
Hope you enjoy it.
