Acclivity has announced the acquisition of MYOB US and its Mac and PC development team from MYOB Limited of Australia. Terms of the deal between the two companies were not disclosed.
Acclivity currently distributes MYOB software throughout the United States. The acquisition will allow Acclivity to manage development of MYOB's Mac business management software, including FirstEdge, AccountEdge and AccountEdgeNetwork Edition.
As part of the arrangement, Acclivity can now enter markets outside the U.S., and one of their first goals will be to bring AccountEdge back to Canada, according to Tom Nash, managing partner at Acclivity.
Current MYOB US customers, along with their Australian and New Zealand Mac customers, will continue to have access to the same products and support resources, according to Nash. "There will be no customer disruption," he said.
