INTUIT has begun a global roll-out of its internet-based accounting system QuickBooks Online.
The software provides an interface for small business owners and accountants to work together on accounts; is designed for a range of devices including tablets and smartphones; and is an open-source platform, allowing third-party party developers to build new apps that build the QuickBooks platform into the program for managing a small business.
Head of Intuit UK Mike Williams said: "In line with our global offering, the UK version of QuickBooks has been rebuilt from the ground up to deliver a simple, yet powerful platform that goes beyond accounting and offers small businesses an unprecedented business management solution. QuickBooks Online is built to take advantage of the cloud and is an open platform that sets the foundation for Intuit's future growth in the UK market and globally."
The programme is set to be available to new users from late October, while rollout to existing users is scheduled to begin in January 2014.
