Intuit Practice Management Helps Accountants Better Manage Their Practice Anytime, Anywhere
Online application connects Intuit Lacerte Tax and QuickBooks desktop software in the cloud
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Jun. 03, 2013 – Intuit (Nasdaq: INTU) announced today the commercial availability of Intuit Practice Management, a new cloud-based offering that helps accounting professionals more efficiently manage their practice anytime, anywhere from any computer with an Internet connection. The announcement was made at the 2013 California Accounting & Business Show & Conference in Los Angeles.
Intuit Practice Management helps enable accounting professionals to experience the benefits of a virtual office by integrating with both Intuit Lacerte Tax and Intuit QuickBooks to save time and create greater workflow efficiencies. Intuit Practice Management eliminates the need for duplicate data entries across these products, and helps firms better manage the status and due dates of engagements, client invoicing and employee time tracking through online dashboards.
"As firms grow, they face several challenges associated with managing a larger client base and the additional employees needed to serve them," said Aaron Brady, senior product manager, at Intuit. "Intuit Practice Management helps eliminate those challenges by giving users instant access to a web-based dashboard that provides confidence projects are being completed on time while also providing insights into a firm's profitability and employees' productivity."
Intuit Practice Management comes with four core components that are focused on engagement tracking, client management, time and billing, and reporting:
"There were several determining factors that led us to choose Intuit Practice Management, including Intuit's reputation and position within the accounting industry and the product's ease-of-use and integration with Lacerte," said Darrell Layman, owner of Darrell Layman, CPA. "Because it's online, when Lacerte is updated, Intuit Practice Management is automatically updated with no dual entries. This tight integration allows our firm to see immediate results and time savings."
