I only know of Quicken and MYOB. Quicken is pretty popular. Both are not freeware though I believe.
Google for what you need in the mean time while waiting for replies.

MYOB is one of the affordable nowdays and its made by malaysian. Currently company is using AccTrak 21 which I hate most (prefer using my Excel to my account and invoices).

But I think for the good one try AccPac and Baan. But kinda exp like RM10k and above per year. cry.gif

Since for home use, try UBS lor... free download and free trial until 1000 transactions entered.

Depend on the purposes you use for it, if it is purely for accounting, then UBS should be ok. If you just use it for track down your personal assets, liabilities or expenses, might try Quicken or Microsoft Money.

For single user, get any system u think is most user friendly, which i think MYOB not bad. For networking user, i think get those accounting system with SQL as database backbone would be a better choice wink.gif

Ya, you sound correct! I sent them email regarding my questions and problems encountered. They not even replied me!!!

Somemore the new version of 9.1 (dated 02/03/2006) got bugs. If your PC hangs and you need to off it without properly. The next time you on back the UBS, for sure there will be some files conrupted.

I only knew about UBS and MYOB.

Learnt on how to use MYOB through South Australia Matriculation in Taylor's College.

Learnt about UBS through my friend, who once worked in one of the UBS service center which located at Pandan Indah, Cheras.

To me, I would personally go with MYOB as it is affordable and more user-friendly...at least to me tongue.gif

EMAS is not that bad. They are improving. And yes, I've use it for fully 2 months in assisting the inventory+accounting+sales in EMAS + another 2 month assisting new workers to use it. The downpoint would be some limitation that they created and their search engine. It has been pinpointed out and told to one of the guy. And I prefer EMAS, as I believed it can fulfill your need.

P/s: Test all and find the one that suits your needs.

Hi, may I know from your opinion what accounting software suitable use in Malaysia is the best?
Currently I using UBS & BCE AutoCount 2006. Both have their strength in Accounting, prefer AutoCount 2006 since the layout look new & very similar to MS office usage.
So, do you have any other accounting software to suggest?

Thanks.

Nothing is so called the best. As long as it suits your usage. Depends on your requirement anyway. For high volume transaction, get an SQL as database. Other than that, UBS, MYOB is fine smile.gif

depends on the size of your co and how far you want to integrate your system. eg do you need branch, subsi consol, stock link up, po or invoice, auto chq etc. from there you also need to plan future expansion eg your co plan to go overseas next yr then you need to consider if you want to do online update/batch/separate etc. also your co infra and budget - huge system like SAP (selalu ada problem smile.gif), jd edwards, oracle or smaller system accpac, ifca or off shelf system like myob etc.

after deciding call for demo. look out for user friendly interface, support, audit trail and also customize reporting and decide from there

I've been using Intuit Quickbooks Premier for quite some time now. It has no big problem when using it. It's easy to use and good for the noobies like me. It covers open invoices,receive payments and can store unlimted company info.

actually myob is too accurate wink.gif (boss cannot temper with the account) unlike ubs u can cut here cut there....

you can try some POS set. the retail outlet transaction and stock inventory can directly upload sales and stock data into the account system to auto update inventory and calculate everything. it's more easier to trace stock and sales. if he wanted to expand his business then he need to invest on getting a pos system... those with barcode scanner and everything

depends on the size of your co and how far you want to integrate your system. eg do you need branch, subsi consol, stock link up, po or invoice, auto chq etc. from there you also need to plan future expansion eg your co plan to go overseas next yr then you need to consider if you want to do online update/batch/separate etc. also your co infra and budget - huge system like SAP (selalu ada problem smile.gif), jd edwards, oracle or smaller system accpac, ifca or off shelf system like myob etc.

after deciding call for demo. look out for user friendly interface, support, audit trail and also customize reporting and decide from there

I agree that you need to consider your requirements. Like what function you need? How big is your database? How heavy is the transactions? And of course, the most important, how much is your budget.

Instead of saying which software is better, it is wiser to choose the software that suits your requirements best.

Nothing is so called the best. As long as it suits your usage. Depends on your requirement anyway. For high volume transaction, get an SQL as database. Other than that, UBS, MYOB is fine smile.gif

keith_hjinhoh is right about high volume of transactions. I am not discounting others support for 1 software over others, but I am just telling my experience. Popularity is not as important as actually testing the software. I bought UBS without testing first, because I thought popular = stable. I was completely wrong. Just a few months using, data corrupted a few times. My UBS reseller ask me to reindex every time, after a few weeks it corrupts again. I call UBS HQ, they say the database is not design to handle high volume rclxub.gif Must trial run first, that's the safest way. Otherwise your valuable data and months of work get corrupted or lost. Thankfully I found a good software that can migrate the data from UBS and they allow me to trial run before purchase biggrin.gif

I am using SQL Account now. Reporting quite flexible. Features also quite complete. It even has a place where you can easily customize fields & script to enhance its features. But most important of all, it is stable so that my business operation runs smoothly. You can download SQL Account here www.sql.com.my/download

As a comparison to SQL Account,
UBS need batch posting from invoicing to account, very troublesome.
MYOB need to do year end closing, not very convenient also.
SQL Account is direct posting and can keep years of data.
So far the best out of the 3 accounting software I have used previously.

you should look at demos. Make appointment with the vendors for live demo. Makes sure you ask them about what stuffs that you want. Cause different company have different policies. Like the posting stuffs. Some big companies do not want any changes to be allowed after posting. That is a kind of security for fraud. So, if your company have such policy then UBS is not for you.

one thing good about SAP is that many other functions can be added on when you have the budget and has best practices for various industries such as automotive, construction and engineering, consumer good products and so forth. SAP is not difficult to use

It depends on your budget. SAP is min 6 figures upwards, UBS & MYOB are 4 figures lower end software. After using UBS and tested MYOB, I personally feel neither are good enough for manufacturing. UBS seems to have the features, but lack stability and user-friendliness. It is very "old tech". While MYOB seems more user-friendly but it doesn't have the features that one would require to run some of the most basic functions of manufacturing. I suggest you continue your search. From my experience, better slow search, long trial run than wrong choice. Read The Star, some accounting software do advertise there.

actually EMAS is not bad. My company is using it. It produces a lot of report type for me to view.
sometimes i also can design my format by myself. so no need charged lo..haha~~

and their program is multi company, mean i buy 1 set, i can do many companies account or stock transactions. some software is calculated by module..if u need to do 2 companies accountings, it cost u as 2 modules, then become very expensive already.

There are a few software that can multi-branch connect through internet. However that is less important than the way you operate your business. Are you running a retail or wholesale?

Retail is much simpler because like 7-11, the customer pick up the stocks, pay, consolidate all 7-11 branches data to server and generate sales reports & stock reports. Transfer stock to replenish if necessary.

If retail, look for POS that can multi-branch link. There is quite a few that can do it.

Wholesales/ trading is much more challenging. Give you a few common scenarios 1) Customer request quote from 1 branch, pricing can't conflict with another branch. 2) Block sales person from branch A from accessing branch B data. 3) If stock delivery issued from branch A, invoice can generate from branch B or HQ. 4) If stock not enough from branch A to cover delivery order, branch B or HQ fulfill delivery quantity even though branch A issue the DO. I have not even touch on credit control, deposit, cross checking branches stock balance & pricing, reserve stocks in branches, approval control.....etc. Complex business operations.

If wholesale/ trading, then choices very limited. Perhaps more important than looking for a system is to standardized a business operations to the simplest acceptable procedures and then look for a system within your budget that matches nearest to those procedures.

There are a few software that can multi-branch connect through internet. However that is less important than the way you operate your business. Are you running a retail or wholesale?

Retail is much simpler because like 7-11, the customer pick up the stocks, pay, consolidate all 7-11 branches data to server and generate sales reports & stock reports. Transfer stock to replenish if necessary.

keith_hjinhoh is right about high volume of transactions. I am not discounting others support for 1 software over others, but I am just telling my experience. Popularity is not as important as actually testing the software. I bought UBS without testing first, because I thought popular = stable. I was completely wrong. Just a few months using, data corrupted a few times. My UBS reseller ask me to reindex every time, after a few weeks it corrupts again. I call UBS HQ, they say the database is not design to handle high volume  rclxub.gif  Must trial run first, that's the safest way. Otherwise your valuable data and months of work get corrupted or lost. Thankfully I found a good software that can migrate the data from UBS and they allow me to trial run before purchase  biggrin.gif

Yes. It happen to me also.

MYOB & UBS which one is better?

my employer want me to find out as our accouting software is about to change to either MYOB or UBS.

pls give me some advice, many thanks

It depends on your budget. SAP is min 6 figures upwards, UBS & MYOB are 4 figures lower end software. After using UBS and tested MYOB, I personally feel neither are good enough for manufacturing. UBS seems to have the features, but lack stability and user-friendliness. It is very "old tech". While MYOB seems more user-friendly but it doesn't have the features that one would require to run some of the most basic functions of manufacturing. I suggest you continue your search. From my experience, better slow search, long trial run than wrong choice. Read The Star, some accounting software do advertise there.

How was SQL Account, have u try? Is it better than UBS & MYOB for manufacturing

Yes. I am currently using SQL Account. No one software is perfectly suit, but if your budget is between 1k - 10k, I feel SQL Account is the most balance software between features, support & user based size. If I understand correct, support is available is most major towns.

I saw their advertisement in SinChew Daily page 3 today (9/12/08). You should call them directly.

Quickbooks is actually a pretty ok software. But most account/ audit people don't like their "U.S. style" chart of account. Can't blame the software. MYOB major market in Australia, Quickbooks is U.S. They wouldn't develop too much localized features because Malaysia is still a peanut in terms of revenue for both these companies. The reseller will tell you it is localized, sorry it is not localized enough in my opinion.

Example, MYOB aging only 4 months, some more summary report without detail breakdown of outstanding. Obviously Australian are either good paymaster or Australian company write off bad debt fast. Here in Malaysia, 12 months aging also not long enough because 1) at least 10% of your debtor don't pay on time and that is if you are lucky 2) conservative companies don't write off bad debt even if the hutang brought forward from grandfather generation.... I pun tak faham why don't write off after 2-3 years sad.gif

I agree that you need to consider your requirements. Like what function you need? How big is your database? How heavy is the transactions? And of course, the most important, how much is your budget.

Instead of saying which software is better, it is wiser to choose the software that suits your requirements best.
*
true. there is no standard package for ERP because you would need a consultant to match your requirement to the system. What more, you need user training, support fees and whatnot. Obviously, the no of users count equals to budget allocation. The more concurrent user of the system = the more user license. Standard database for ERP now is SQL, Oracle or DB2, to handle higher volume of data coming in. smile.gif

Thx for reply me. biggrin.gif I need more further details for SQL Account. As i read thru all feedback, some comment & suggest that SQL Accounting is use as database backbone but it have more than 20 sub-module. Means that more user & function added up will costs more money. But the best of this software is it has direct posting function & can avoiding wrong posting, pls correct if i am wrong.

My company is using EMAS for doing 2 companies accounts, is the SQL Accounting need to purchase 2 modules for doing 2 companies accounts? I had downloaded SQL account for trial, it seems just maintain well the journal than click to report for printing, is the financial report also autimatically printing by clicking it? Still need to do year end closing?

For MYOB, u did mention that MYOB doesn't have the features to run some of basic function of manufacturing, what exactly the features is? Hav u try MYOB Premier Plus v12, i'd downloaded trial software & find out it's complicated. Honestly i'm new in accounting software, for MYOB i dont even know how to do the posting. rclxub.gif

Ver8.3 I use. Call UBS HQ in Twin Tower name Max Ong. Lot of issues cant even explain. Just like previous thread mention same thing. Useless software. I think probably UBS need new programming coding instead keep using the old 1 and keep upgrading. When reach to huge transaction UBS become super slow compare to SQL.

My brother write down all problem and issues and forward to UBS also cant get any solution doh.gif . Another few more years USB if still continue like this probably can say no eye see. But never mind lah. UBS big boss already millionaire and company also MSC status. Who care? cool2.gif

If VPN switch/ router get hook up and works in 2 or more places. If data transmission is fast, like those in cyber cafe. If operation flow is simplify. Then it will work. But it's the 3rd "if" I think is hardest to solve because that involves human.

MYOB or UBS....if I am force to choose these 2 only. Then I will pick UBS, and when there are problems, I'll say "How I know the most popular accounting software in Malaysia like that wan". With MYOB, is lacking of features. With UBS, is rich with features that is inaccurate. Your choice... smile.gif Fortunately for me, there are other good software around.

This is both UBS and LHDN fault. LHDN approved them on "old" formula. UBS advertised as "approved" knowing the formula will need further update. If you have few staffs and have not buy, maybe using PCB e-calculator until confirm confirm confirm LHDN will not change is best. If you have bought, then attend their seminar and get updates. If you have more than 10 staffs, in my opinion, it will get harder and harder to avoid payroll software. The new calculations are very difficult to keep track for employers.

I suggest you call your local support or directly to HQ (http://www.sql.com.my/contact/). I know they have techniques to solve this problem because I already solved mine.

But dont know if use with MS SQL server how? Actually I do believe there is misconception about brand of the database vs its speed. Even if you got the biggest warehouse in the world, if you don't have an efficient way of finding it. It will still take forever to find the stock. The same it is between the relation of db & its application. They need to work efficiently together. You can run UBS with Oracle db and give it gigabytes of memory and it will still be inaccurate and maybe slow in certain reports because the issue is not just the db, it is the application itself.

My friend's company have about 40 concurrent + remote users, but not much issue using SQL Account. However they did have to change server spec once.

1 thing I notice, you can not run too much memory consuming programs concurrent with SQL Account. When you run a report like ex, 1 year long stock card. It takes a lot resources to calculate if the trans volume is high. So it is reasonable not to be running CCTV, AutoCad...etc other high memory consuming programs together.

Another thing is because of its rich graphical interface & flexibility. It will take a bit longer to load a screen the first time. "Fix format" screen of old software like UBS, I believe will load a bit faster simply because its more "fix" and less options on flexibility.

I suggest you call SQL Account vendor or developer www.sql.com.my, they should have a solution.

Hi,

my company has very low sales activity (less than 50 invoices/yr) and moderate expense (usually just 2 expense per category) I m very familiar with mgmt account but have never done actual entry before (was always the boss).

I m looking for an accounting software that I could use myself so I could let my accountant go; though time.

Which accounting software would be best suited for me?

Thank You.

software is nice , but customer services is bad, if u complaint , they cancelled entertaint you again ( there is 1 guy call Christopher do like that) <--- if u report to police , the policeman cancelled entertain you , what u feel it ?
some more, this software have more than 20 sub - module , if u buy short of some function , u add later is cost you 1 module RM 500 . add 1 user RM 500 . i have friend face this problem already , it cost me addition 2 module and always late give us activation code until my accounting stuck on the period , please bear in mind , buy accounting soft doesn't same like buy computer .. if u buy wrong , u have problem to change to other software ( for those accouting ppl shd be understand) this software is a slower software among all accounting software .. if u standalone maybe just slow little bit , if u using network slow 30second per transaction , example call customer payment 5second , load customer code 5second , load GL code/itemcode 5 second per item, save it 3-5 second (depend on how many item code u save, print preview 5 second , print 5 second ) for those doing accounting shd be understanding how it work.

i just give some real story only, if u dun mind can try it , for my knowledge this software 1 by 1 is still expensive than SAP business one

totally second that, you cannot complaint
they either:
-ignore you (even you paid the support fee for a year and still within the contract period)
-they increase the support fee kao kao for next year

We complaint twice (major complaint) and they increase the fee to almost double

We made 30 calls a year to ask for support, and they told us our call is excessive and want to increase the support fee by 30%

wah lao eh! SQL Accounting, think twice, make sure you can support yourself

Hmmm? I don't know which dealers you bought it from cause my experience with SQL Account so far has been pretty good since 2007. The software itself is reliable, good, much much better than UBS. But as any experienced user knows, software is just half the story. The support & training & upgrading of the software is just as important. I get regular updates every few months by e-mail from their support staffs. They support my colleague or myself through phone, skype & remote access.

We have to pay for support services, and if you don't pay, the support services will not be there. But so far price is reasonable compare to services delivered. When we have new staff, we just send them to HQ for training and its FOC. That's save me a lot time to re-educate a new staff on the system. Maybe you should try contact directly with HQ SQL Account

I dealt with their HQ directly. Their staff's support are good.

--> This I totally agree


It just the price increase is not reasonable and their boss Desmond, is total disaster when you try to negotiate with them.

First quotation to extend the service contract:
Unlimited support - 30% increment over 2009-2010's

I was nearby their office, I went in and negotiate
-Their boss Desmond refuse to talk to me
-They told me 30 support calls per year was excessive
-Then I asked them to requote, changed unlimited to max 30 call support per year

After a week, new quotation received:
-30 limited support call
- The price was 42% over 2009-2010's
For me: this mean that you come and nego with me, u wasted my time, thus I increase your price by another 10%
- I called again, their boss refused to talk with me also, keep asking the support staff to deal with me.

If you say their boss is busy, then you are wrong, I caught them reading newspaper.

No respect at all. Good support staff, but management problem.

In theory, when purchase a software, one should allocate 10-20% from the budget for 2nd year support. But this is only true if the scope of use maintain or reduce.

However the more a company rely on the software, then its expected increase its scope of use and hence expected to pay higher for support. If you are using software like SAP, then expect to pay through your nose. Their expertise are often count by man day.

Frankly the system is so complex that even merging 2-3 tables to get a simple report can cost a few $k. You can't do it easily on some reporting tools like it can be done in a lot of system. It's clear that the SAP vendor rakes in $$$ from charging after sales services. But what to do, knee deep already, so continue to spend money to swim along lar.

it's always very important to sit in a system demo b4 you decides which software you want to invest. It's no harm for you to do so and decides later.

For example, let your accountants to question the software provider themselves and see how far can the s.provider provides them a solution.

Our salesman is not just a salesman, he is a programmer and accountant so he knows what's really happens

As a developer,it' hard to make good accounting system.Let go the basic rule.UBS is the worst accounting system.The reason was each time you create a debtor,you will create a chart of account.Most customer UBS will have range 500 ~ 15k chart of account.So Quite big..Even if you used mssql or oracle.It's fall back the same question.How do you create your business rule to your account.Some customer wanted their business rule to implement in standard accounting.Which dam hard.The reason developer just optimize for basic accounting not to certain business rule.Even the biggest SAP -50% basic-50% customization.

Actually it has its advantages, especially on journal amendments. BUT its disadvantages at this stage is just way too much to justify using this methodology anymore. Frankly that is not nearly UBS biggest problem, but I'll leave that some other day.

You are right especially on more complex business nature. No such thing as 100% fit without either party making compromises. Nevertheless even standard software, some are definitely more flexible than others. UBS, MYOB very inflexible. SQL Account, SAP B1, AccPac, AutoCount, GreatPlains...etc more flexible. SAP very flexible but incredibly complex not to mention the million dollar price tag.

Ideally it is 1 business operation system do all, but really sometimes its just not realistic because the nature of the requirements are just too different. Might as well mix & match 2-3 programs as much as realistically possible.

QB is actually quite good if you are using it in U.S. Here in MY, maybe not that suit. Financial reports are based on US accounting standards. SO & DO are not independent modules (same problem with Australian developed MYOB). No OR & PV reports. Few users & even fewer resellers in Klang Valley. However I like QB designed for project/ construction accounting. Of all standard accounting software within few $k price range, QB designed for this industry is consider quite good.

less problems, no batching no posting, no hanging tongue.gif

no year-end closing

user-friendly and clean simple interface

of course i'd say it's good la, i'm a dealer smile.gif

but seriously, i've had clients who abandon their UBS for SQL Acct, and then it's happily ever after, easier working life.

Sql account can be customise or modify to suite company or business need while ubs cannot. Account, invoicing and stock module in Sql
is in 1 software but in ubs it is separated into 2 software so in ubs u have to do a month end or manual posting for accounting and in sql it is in a real-time.

Both software are available in major cities all over malaysia. Call both of them, ask for a free demo for you and your colleague. Then decide. When you put them side by side, or do a simple trial run, you will not even need to ask the questions what are the advantages. The difference is so clear, you will know it immediately.

As mentioned in previous post "too many people buy software by brand and get burn "kau kau" by it." People pick the "wrong" accounting software, like I did in the past is because I didn't bother to see a demo. If I would just see a demo, which is free, I would have save myself 2 years of headache.

Just visit and call UBS & SQL Account

your explanation sucks. you won't clinch the deal if you explain in such short manner. customers need to know the details on why

year-end closing is a problem.

no batching no posting is a problem.

no hanging won't mean anything to a non technical user.

good communication skill is very important.

For SQL Accounting - 1st year it's all included in the package deal

2nd year onwards, there will be support charges to handle issues, queries, training for new staff, etc.

for home use accounting software, i think UBS shd be ok cos i'm using this at work & home. (simple, easy and cheaper costs).
i'd been using MYOB previously. not bad also. it's complicated at first but not a problem for you after get used to the application smile.gif

has anyone heard about e-MAS accounting software? it's kinda like UBS. just that the details key-in to the system can be elaborated more compared to UBS.

Hi.. what u can do is - at the Maintain Stock Item - under UOM -

Set all the relevant cost and selling price here. eg. 1 pc = rm1, so one box = RM24

IN quotation and invoices, select in the UOM field, by pc or by box, then the Profit estimator should be accurate.

good luck

i see. bcos both UOM, the Rate field is set at '1'. for 'box' u need to put in how many pcs in one box, eg. 24 or 48.

the system sees a problem in the duplicate value of '1'.

how is the after sales service in ubs compared with sql accounting ? any charges ?

Becareful for their technics (Sql acc), when u buy their software with less than 8 users, they will charge you very cheap and include more modules. but, after your business expand and require to upgrade to have more than 8 users then they will charge very high, they will even charge back the previous modules and the previous users license become expensive already. then this time you cannot run already because you are already hooked.

Hi, i will recommend this accounting software developed by local software house.
The product name is QnE (Quick and Easy).

This QnE is most user friendly compare to other accounting software. the accounting module and inventory module is integrated and real time posting.

Btw, you are actually "on topic". Accounting system is what this forum is mostly talking about
Sage50 & UBS 9.x are both account, invoicing, stock system. But 2 different software all together but own by the same group. It's like Nestle owning Milo & also Nescafe. Both are beverage, but they are entirely different thing.

Btw, suggest you read this also advice before deciding a system

I would recommend you to try on Chronos eStockCard Inventory Software. Since you are looking for a freeware for home use, you can just download the Free Edition which is also the Chronos eStockCard Premier Edition, you can use it to control stock and also issue invoice. The Free Edition comes with some limitations on the features but it's free for life (no time limits). Please give it a try wink.gif.

For more info, please visit the website at http://www.estockcard.com. Thanks.

I would recommend a software which can provide you support

- After sales support around Malaysia (Sabah & Sarawak).
- Can support you onsite, provide you training on your place, using your PC.
- Pick up your call for immediate support.

You don't want to look for someone "hit and run" with no support after the sales.
Look for bigger brand.

Interested ? drop me a PM for more information.

My whole UBS database for 1 accounting year has reached almost 800MB! We have 6 persons LAN together. When preview the B/S & P&L, the retrieving speed from database like hell! Even though, we are all on 1Gbps network, XP with SP3, 2GB ram, E7500 processor. We are using UBS 9.1, or we have to upgrade the UBS version in order to support a faster and newer database management?
Anyone experience this?

UBS DB is foxpro, its an old DB. It is unrealistic to expect it to get any faster whether you upgrade to 9.3/4/5....etc. There is really no difference. Much like expecting a car to carry lorry load. You are only left with a few options
1) Year end close it. This is temporarily resolution. After year end close, 1-2 months fast, but towards 12-18 months sure slow again.
2) Some people use terminal service so that all processes are running from server before delivered to workstation. But that means you got to have a fast server + buy Win server 2008 + terminal services licenses.
3) Change the software. Find one that can migrate all the customer, supplier, stock + opening balances + item sales/ purchase pricing history.

If I am in your position, I would choose option 3 cause 1 & 2 are not really solutions. I imagine you already have to re-index to "rescue" the db regularly. I am also presuming you have more than 100 invoices a day volume. Here's a list of common acc software Accouting Software Out of which, most tak boleh pakai in your situation.

You also posted Here . Based on what you said, doesn't sound like you need ERP cause good ERP are all hell expensive (actually they are not expensive, its local people don't see their value only). Not so good "ERP" (there are many advertising in lowyat blink.gif ) is not worth the trouble because you are more likely than not will end up in the same problem. BTW, I wouldn't recommend "indon worker" to use ERP, would you?

So what to do? Call that list software above, get an idea which can do what you want & service your company in your remote area and read this

The list of accounting software is here http://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?act=ST&f...=0#entry8056163
I think the top 3 most widely use in Malaysia are UBS, MYOB, & SQL Account. UBS & SQL Account can scan item by barcode & print barcode labels. I don't know about MYOB. Price wise, $1k - $3k range depending on modules. Each has its own uniquness, so request a free demo, see first then decide.

Took me a while to read all the previous post,
I am a owner of 2 sdn bhd companies, mainly doing buying and selling goods, i found that by giving an account RM600 per month just for the book keeping seems like an extra cost to me. i would like to do it myself. so i google some accounting software in malaysia market and even free but i don't mind buy the software if its really helps.
so far there is 2 popular accounting software which already in the posted list. Sage Ubs and MYOB in my mind, I think i will do all the bookeeping and payroll as well
So my question is,
1. which one is more suitable to whom may not have any accounting experience? even payroll job
2. When reach year end, does the software will easily help me to submit to auditor?
3. I found that this type of accounting software seems like have a lots of reseller or dealer, who should i buy from?

i tried to google the comparison but it seems very less info about it.
Thanks in advance

There is so many version of each brand... i started to confuse.... i don't know which one more suitable

Hello all,

We've been using MYOB for quite a number of years now.

However, we are tired of the lags and slow processing speed when there are 2 or more users using MYOB simultaneously.

Have any of you encountered the same problem? If yes what is the solution?

We have no problem for additional software or hardware upgrade/purchase, as long it fixes the problem!

Thank you smile.gif

Why some of the software after 1 year become slow?

this is due to the storage structure is using File Base.

If using Microsoft Database SQL will be more stable.
