Actually, MYOB is no longer just a desktop application. Out of the
box, it can be used in a network environment with concurrent users(you
simply nee to purchase the additional licences). I think it's still
using proprietary database system though. But, you can connect via an
ODBC driver that you can acquire from MYOB. QuickBooks uses XML to
transfer data.

Have a nice day.
