When it comes to 3rd Party Integrations or Add-ons every single accounting vendor will want to make sure that the tools is robust and ready for use in their ecosystem of solutions. MYOB is no different.
Once a developer has created an integration to an accounting vendor they must submit it for review before it is listed in any App Marketplace or Add-on Gallery. This process usually involves a video review of the solution, a walkthrough of the connection, a discussion around data security and feedback from initial users.
Once this is completed and approved, the solution is listed on the site. Various providers have different names for this. Some call them reviewed solutions, others call these certified solutions. Here at MYOB we call these Approved Solutions. Every single listing on https://myob.com/addons has been reviewed through this process and is Approved by MYOB.
So why are some listings on myob.com/addons tagged as certified?
MYOB looked at a way to highlight and reward add-ons that were leading the pack and deeply aligned with our vision and customer needs. We settled on the term Certified as a way to highlight these solutions.
Given the use of the term certified in the software industry, we will be changing this program in the near future to highlight and showcase the leading edge solutions in a different way.
Safe to say right now, if you are just getting started with add-ons, want to work with a team who are as passionate about your business as we are, then a certified add-on is the way to go.
