Intuit launches QuickBooks 2012
Intuit has launched a new version of its financial management software for small businesses, accountants and bookkeepers.
Announced at yesterday’s Softworld conference, QuickBooks 2012 includes new time-saving features including a calendar view of financial activities, an improved client data review tool and a tool to identify invoice timings.
The software also incorporates accountant-centric features to simplify organisation and save time, such as being able to batch invoices for clients sharing the same flat-rate fee.
Rich Walker, director of global accountant strategy and initiatives at Intuit, said: “Accountants play an important role in helping small businesses to manage their finances correctly, keep their records in order and stay compliant.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for accountants to support their QuickBooks clients, particularly as we continue to grow our small business customer base in the UK.”
Intuit's time-saving focus follows their report, 'The Three Year Glitch', which found out of 500 small business owners polled 1 in 10 spend more than a day a week managing their finances and administration. Accountants can use the improved version to help clients better manage their finances and spend more time focused on business growth.
Desktop versions of UK QuickBooks 2012 will be available in November and versions for download from 25 October.
