Intuit Provides Help to Microsoft Accounting Customers

Conversion Tool Allows Small Businesses to Seamlessly Switch to QuickBooks 2010

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Nov. 16, 2009 – Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) is extending a helping hand to small businesses affected by the discontinuation of Microsoft Office Accounting, which will no longer be distributed after today.

The QuickBooks maker is providing a free conversion tool that will help former Microsoft users seamlessly transfer their small business accounting data to QuickBooks products. 

The free QuickBooks Conversion Tool easily imports business data, balances and transactions so customers can continue running their businesses without missing a beat. It converts data from Microsoft Small Business Accounting and Office Accounting products through the 2009 versions into QuickBooks Pro, Premier, and Enterprise Solutions editions.

It can also convert Microsoft Office Accounting Express to QuickBooks Simple Start 2010. The tool includes a short and straightforward setup process, moving all data into a newly created QuickBooks file, leaving existing data untouched.

“We are committed to helping small businesses be as successful as possible,” said Kiran Patel, executive vice president and general manager of Intuit’s Small Business Group. “We know that many Microsoft customers will soon be looking for new accounting software so they can keep on top of their finances. The QuickBooks team will take them through the transition and help them streamline critical accounting tasks and connect to new online services as soon as possible.”

Assistance in Making the Transition

Intuit representatives are available at 1-866-676-9668 to assist Microsoft customers in making the transition and to provide advice on which QuickBooks product will best support their business.
