Accounting package wins “hackathon” held by Ford Australia

A team of MYOB software developers and business analysts connected its AccountRight program to a new operating system for Ford cars during a 24-hour “hackathon” held by Ford Australia on Saturday. The winning app lets a user update the accounting program by talking to the car’s voice commands system. The MYOB team decided to use Ford’s new operating system to connect to an iPad running MYOB AccountRight and use voice commands to look up information in the program.
