This is the key to MYOB’s strong revenue growth

August 27th, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

Tim Reed has just delivered his first profit since his accountancy software group MYOB listed on the ASX.

He had the happy duty of announcing that MYOB now had 528,000 paying users, up 10% and ahead of prospectus forecasts.

And not only are subscribers increasing but the revenue from each of them is rising. Each subscriber is now worth $371, up from $354 the year before and ahead of prospectus guidance by about $7.

This added up to a 8% increase in overall revenue for the six months to June to $161 million.

Underlying profit was up 14% to $40 million. The statutory profit was a loss of $65.04 million but that included the costs of relisting on the ASX in May.

And dividends will probably start flowing from the second six months.

The business is being driven by increasing revenue from subscriptions to cloud-based software, a change from years past when software was paid for and installed. No further revenue, except for updates, to the software creator.

Subscription revenue, in the form of a monthly fee, has a magic component. A company with such revenue starts each year with a good chunk of revenue already in place because subscribers gained are still paying from the year before. Under the old model, money didn’t come until new sales were made.

“Those who purchased from us some years ago are increasingly moving from the desktop to our cloud based solutions,” Tim Reed told Business Insider.

“Our paying users are growing 10% year-on-year and our cloud users are growing 65% and that is underpinning the strong financial results that we shared today.

“94% of our revenue is recurring and if you went back five or six years that was at about 80%. It’s been a real growth driver for us as we’ve brought our cloud based solutions to market.”

There’s plenty of competition in the cloud accounting software segment, including one making a big mark, Xero, also listed on the ASX.

“There is a lot of noise but we like to focus not on noise but on delivering value to our clients,” says Reed.

“Competition is great and I think it’s great for every business. I fundamentally believe that because it forces businesses to look deep within themselves and make sure they are doing the right thing for their clients.”

He says it’s all about making it easier, simpler and faster for a small business to get accounts done.

And that means innovation. Making the product better. And it’s also about customer service.

“Customer service is important to us,” he says. “They get to speak to people and our service teams are in Melbourne and Christchurch. They get to have a good chat to someone who understands the local business environment.”

Zimbabwe: Econet Trains Computer Specialists

August 27th, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

Econet Wireless says it has invested towards training of 1 000 young people as specialist computer programme coders over the last 12 months despite the problems that continue besetting the economy.

The young school leavers who were selected for the programme are among the 40 000 orphaned children who annually receive education support from Econet Wireless and its founder Mr Strive Masiyiwa.

The company has set up a special training facility called Muzinda Hub, which is equipped with the latest computer systems to train young people on how to design computer programmes, known as “apps”.

Those trained can also design websites for companies around the world. The young computer programme coders will be able to join other young people from across Africa competing to earn part of the $5 billion a year spent on buying services from African programmers.

Explaining the initiative, Mr Douglas Mboweni, Econet Zimbabwe chief executive said: “Muzinda Hub is training coders who will earn millions for themselves and the country.

“This is a huge industry globally and even in Africa where countries like South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, and Nigeria are earning hundreds of millions a year from this industry.”

The Econet CEO said the Muzinda Hub graduates would be trained to become independent entrepreneurs, and assisted to become real business people.

“The vision Mr Masiyiwa gave us was that we must equip them to become independent business people. This is a scholarship programme in skills development to position Zimbabwe in the future economy,” said the chief executive of Zimbabwe’s biggest network operator.

A programmer, computer programmer, developer, coder, or software engineer is a person who writes computer software. The term computer programmer can refer to a specialist in one area of computer programming or to a generalist who writes codes for many kinds of software, according to online encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

As such, a person who practices or professes a formal approach to programming may also be known as a programmer analyst. A programmer’s primary computer language (Assembler, COBOL, C, C++, C#, Java, Lisp, Python,) is often prefixed to these titles, and those who work in a Web environment often prefix their titles with Web.

The term programmer can be used to refer to a software developer, Web developer, mobile applications developer, embedded firmware developer, software engineer, computer scientist, or software analyst.

However, members of these ICT professions possess other software engineering skills, beyond programming; for this reason, the term programmer, or code monkey, is sometimes considered an insulting or derogatory oversimplification of these other professional capabilities.

This has sparked much debate amongst developers, analysts, computer scientists, programmers, and outsiders who continue to be puzzled at the subtle differences in the definitions of these occupations.
