EzyLearn is a lowest cost procedure of training courses and for March 2020 we’re offering a lowest course price guarantee on the MYOB AccountRight and MYOB Essentials training courses!
I had a fantastic conversation with an EzyLearn student during the week. She enrolled into our Xero COMPLETE Training Course Package and love it so much she enrolled into MYOB, QuickBooks, Excel and more.
The course increased her confidence to apply for and get work after years of being out of the workforce and as a bookkeeper she now uses the courses as a resource for aspects of the software she needs to upskill on. The EzyLearn Affiliate Membership is designed for students like her.
Scroll through the job ads on Seek for accounting and office admin jobs and you’ll see the usual skill requirements. MYOB skills, experience using xero and of course high level Microsoft Office and Excel spreadsheet skills.
I did a search before Christmas and one particular job ad stood out. A Sydney building company needed to fill a job for someone who recently left and it contained a list of digital marketing tasks in the job description!
These skills were a nice to have, not mandatory, but it confirmed something I knew was coming – digital marketing tasks performed by office admin staff!Continue reading It’s official. Digital marketing now part of office administration job description
Xero have been a looming threat for MYOB’s establised AccountRight accounting program for many years already and there is persistent reason for most people – it’s still an application that needs to be installed on your device – whatever that device is.
Xero, QuickBooks and even Sage have got around that with the fact that everyone can log into their software in the cloud from any device.
This screen shot was sent to us by a student who is completing the MYOB AccountRight COMPLETE training course package and it’s something that we see very often.
Another issue that businesses have is in the way that each user (who has access to the MYOB datafile) is managed and that it drops out some time.
Don’t worry though, plenty of businesses still use MYOB AccountRight because they are happy with the process they’ve managed for several years and sometimes because they don’t want to go through the tedious process of migrating away from MYOB AccountRight.
While I’m on that topic our new Migrating away from MYOB AccountRight Training Micro Course is being added to every week as we flesh it out. This week we are exploring the import templates provided by MYOB (to migrate to MYOB Essentials, Xero, QuickBooks and Sage).
Some people still using MYOB AccountRight version 19
On the flipside if you use an old version of MYOB AccountRight you don’t need to worry about paying a monthly fee or upgrading if the software (installed on your computer) is still doing what you need.
I spoke to an independent shoe shop owner who uses a POS System and MYOB AccountRight and because he’s a small business he doesn’t need to upgrade the software for STP or other integrations.
His current system works just fine and he doesn’t want to spend hundreds of dollars per year if he doesn’t need to.
I’ve even noticed some training course competitors promoting an MYOB training course that uses version 19 🙁 That’s a bit sad because that version is now almost 10 years old and we spend tens of thousands of dollars every year making sure all our courses are updated regularly!
If you are interested in seeing our currently discounted courses go here and if you need to do a course but can’t afford it right now, check out the accounting and office admin courses available now for $20 per week!
It almost seemed like Xero was giving you $27.50 of extra value when they announced their $2 per month increase last week. These effects take effect on 18 March 2020 but not everyone wants Hubdoc and competitors like QuickBooks already offered similar functionality!
Xero has had a love/hate relationship with bookkeepers ever since the days when they promoted their accounting software as so easy that small business owners could use it themselves – without the cost of a bookkeeper – and it looks like they are well on their way with this mission. Continue reading Xero going up a pesky $2 rather than $27.50
It seems that we Aussies always get on the retail marketing bandwagon so here we go! For a limited time we’re making our full library of Microsoft Excel training course videos available for $1
To be fair, this gives us an opportunity to explore different ways of making our training available (digital marketing) and enables us to use some fantastic new technology.
I hope I didn’t sound rude, but if you’ve read these blog posts you’d know I love playing around with new technology but Telstra Online Essentials is a website builder tool that infuriates me!
I recently had an opportunity to help out Neville with his online marketing and that included exploring his current website on Telstra Online Essentials. We quickly got the EPP code for his domain name and transferred AWAY to Crazy Domains but they had some issues too!
One reason I love online training and how it offers exceptional value for students who are looking for work as well a those who are currently working is that they can ask questions and have them answered using EzyLearn ANSWERS.
We had a recent student who enrolled into our Xero Payroll Training course because she needed to get up to speed on Single Touch Payroll (STP) but she was already behind in her obligations. This is what we did for her. Continue reading Behind in your ATO Payroll requirements for STP (Single Touch Payroll)
In 2015 I wrote about Xero’s inventory management when it was released and how important it was to make it competitive with MYOB AccountRight. These days however it seems that Xero hasn’t done much more and they’re a bit behind Intuit’s QuickBooks Online which has a lot of inventory and stock management features.
I’ll explain and drill down a bit.. Continue reading Inventory and Stock is more beautiful using QuickBooks than Xero
So you want to learn Excel quickly and you’re on a budget? Buy our Excel Beginners’ to Intermediate training workbooks (with exercise files) and start getting a handle on how to master the world’s number one business productivity software program.
I can use Word, it’s easy! How many times have you heard that?
When we performed skills assessments for CRS Australia at our Dee Why training Centre we’d have lots of clients come in and tell us how great they were at using Microsoft Word, until we asked them to show us how to perform some of the Intermediate Word skills.
We often found that they’d benefit greatly from the Microsoft Word Beginners Courses because they struggled with these simple concepts. Continue reading Design and produce business documents & data entry using Microsoft Word
I ran a CloudPBX Business Telephone System business several years ago that combined products and services just like most tradies – some of the items sold were in the technicians truck while others had to be ordered in for each new installation. It is the perfect case study for our Data Entry, A/R & A/P Courses for MYOB, Xero and QuickBooks courses because I knew about it intimately and it’s very similar to how most tradies operate.
When we design a course we follow these steps:
- come up with the scenario,
- create the data examples,
- run through the scenarios, and then
- create the training workbook (then the videos and assessments)
The Xero Data Entry and Credit Management Training Workbook – we call it “Daily Transactions” – is now available separately as an instant download!
All of a sudden I’m hearing about terms of trade from everyone! Maybe it’s because things are tight and customers need credit? Or maybe it’s because we have started offering course funding at $20 per week!!
We are busy updating our Credit Controllers Course right now. Check out some of the topics included that will get you up to speed.Continue reading Terms of Trade and Credit Risk Controllers
Finally, after 23 years we’re making our training manuals available for sale! Not the ones we created 23 years ago but our latest versions of course.
Training manuals are an important learning tool for our courses because they contain the step-by-step exercises that the course is based around. Our first release of training manuals covers credit management, accounts receivable, accounts payable, data entry of quotes, invoices, purchases and payments – all the things that most businesses need.
Purchase yours now and download them instantly.
Looking through Seek for data entry jobs yesterday reminded me of the training courses we offered when we operated our Dee Why training centre. It was the dotcom boom and MYOB Accounts Receivable and Payable courses were our popular weekend courses but most students needed more basic data entry skills.
Data entry skills include typing, editing documents, entering data into spreadsheets, saving files and then opening, editing and saving them again!
More job seekers have data entry skills but there’s so much more to know about basic Word and Excel usage that employers need you to know.
THE DEFINITION OF a training course has changed a lot over the last 20 years. With new online internet technologies comes new ways of learning. The concept of the “micro course” is gaining momentum as students look for information when they need it, known in the industry as “just in time learning”.
There are lots of time and cost pressures for students as they juggle part-time work, kids and mortgage payments. As a result, we’re launching a brand new Online Training Service for past EzyLearn students AND new students — EzyLearn’s Video Training Library Membership.
