July 30, 2007 (ROCKAWAY, NJ) - MYOB today announced the release of FirstEdge v3, their entry-level small business management and accounting software application for Mac OS X.

FirstEdge v3 sees the entry-level software line updated with over 20 feature enhancements including Address Book sync, improved budgeting tools, and enhanced reporting, among other changes.
"FirstEdge is a straightforward accounting package for Mac-based small businesses that have simple accounting needs," says Tom Nash, Managing Partner, MYOB US.
