Quickbooks Online Releases iPad App To Keep On-The-Go Business Owners Productive

There’s a huge demand from small (and large) business owners for apps that make their lives easier. App developers have risen in huge numbers to fulfill the demand. We recently ran a list of apps that can really make a difference in the traveling businessperson’s life.

Just as DocuSign went from being just a computer application for electronically signing contracts, to providing a mobile solution in DocuSign Ink, Intuit has made a similar jump with QuickBooks.

“Managing a small business is a different game today than it was a few years ago, due in large part to the proliferation of smartphones and tablets,” said Dan Wernikoff, senior vice president and general manager of Intuit’s Financial Management Solutions division.

Inuit has rolled with the changes in technology over the years and has never stopped evolving. QuickBooks has been making accounting easy for over 20 years, taking their product from desktop computers to pocket devices.

Intuit’s Wenikoff said they’ve “found that more than 20 percent of QuickBooks Mobile for iPhone users access the app through iPads.”

Those iPad users now have an app all their own, and it does way more than you’d think. You can create and send professional estimates and invoices on the spot, accept electronic signatures to approve estimates, access your finances from anywhere, view a complete customer history, and add photos and notes so you don’t forget anything. On top of that, your data is visualized. You can see your income and expenses charted.

One example of a Quickbooks iPad app user’s experience:

“As a wedding planner, I spend 70 percent of my time away from my desk meeting with clients and vendors. At the end of the day, I used to sort through my meeting notes, map out next steps, track payments and expenses, and follow up with invoices,” said Sadie Waddington of Locally Grown Weddings in San Francisco, Calif. “Now, I save time by catching up on accounting during the four hours I commute on public transit each week using QuickBooks Online for iPad.”

You can try out the app for 30 days for free. After that, QuickBooks Online for iPad starts at $12.99 per month or $124.99 per year.
