QuickBooks 2011 for Mac Boosts Productivity; Helps Small Businesses Scale as They Grow
New Features Save Time, Enhance Customization
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Sep. 07, 2010 – Small business Mac users will be able to save more time thanks to new multi-user functionality in the latest release of QuickBooks financial software, from Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU). QuickBooks 2011 for Mac gives small business owners powerful tools with the simplicity they expect from a Mac product. Available Sept. 27, the software can grow with the user’s business, make everyday tasks easier, and create customized business forms and reports.
The software meets the needs of expanding small businesses with new multi-user options and the ability to set user permissions - the most-requested features by previous QuickBooks for Mac users. With the ability to delegate important accounting tasks to others in the company, small business owners can focus on driving their businesses forward.
QuickBooks 2011 for Mac also features new reports and tools to help users track job-related mileage so they can claim the tax write-offs they deserve. Users can also customize reports and forms to reflect their brands and to show the exact data they need to show.
"Many of our small business customers - from the graphic designer to the restaurant owner - run busy, fast-growing operations," said Dan Wernikoff, vice president and general manager of Intuit’s Financial Management Solutions division. "The features in QuickBooks 2011 for Mac help them save time in the back office, so they can grow their business without feeling growing pains."
Scale the Back Office as You Grow
Two new features ensure that QuickBooks 2011 for Mac can grow as a small business expands:
"Multi-user functionality is time-saving and priceless to my business," said Gary Gray of October Media Group in Los Angeles, Calif. "Other users in my office can access the financials without me having to give up my laptop, which allows me to focus on my projects."
Make Everyday Tasks Easier
QuickBooks for Mac 2011 also includes these time-saving features:
Customize Forms for Your Needs
Small businesses can spend considerable time manually designing forms to reflect their unique brands. And creating reports with the data they need can be challenging. New customization features and templates in QuickBooks 2011 for Mac make it easy to create sleek and simple forms.
