Intuit has introduced QuickBooks.13 as the next tool for small- and mid-sized businesses to manage more complexity with the flexibility to fit financial management software to their business. The technology puts the reins back in the hands of the business owner, rather than the “business as usual” way of letting the software drive the company’s management objectives.
The benefits of Intuit 2013 for point of sale (POS) allow the merchant to easily ring up sales, accept credit cards, manage inventory and track customers. The system allows for instant reports that illustrate top-selling products, customer stats, sales data and more. A Mobile Sync app is available to capture sales anywhere with iPhone, iPad and Android. The software integrates easily for merchants with Intuit’s QuickBooks and GoPayment. Additionally, a new document attachment feature allows small business owners to attach contracts, receipts and other financial documents for easy reference.
In addition to its POS benefits of improving efficiency through performance enhancements, navigation and third-party application integration, the latest version of QuickBooks brings fully integrated barcode scanning functionality and bin location tracking to the end-user.
Barcode scanning offers increased efficiency and reliability for all inventory data entry by scanning items and serial numbers without touching a keyboard. QuickBooks automatically puts the right information into the right field. For merchants without barcodes, the new version will create them. And they easily interface with simple USB barcode scanners.
Bin location tracking allows staff to track specific inventory items down to the bin level within one or more warehouses. When filling out forms, management can automatically see quantities and serial or lot numbers for each bin. An additional benefit is the ability to sort pick lists and item receipts by location for efficient picking and stocking.
The new features include batch invoicing, creating a template for multiple customers for the same services and serving them simultaneously; a payment network that provides a means for small business customers to pay invoices electronically; and improved reconciliation to eliminate errors.
A company news release likens the new QuickBooks to Zen in the product’s ability to simplify basic business tasks such as organizing records. Dan Wernikoff, senior vice president and general manager of Intuit’s Financial Management Solutions division stated in a September release, “The 2013 code name reflects the even greater simplicity we’ve brought to the product to help small businesses save time managing their finances. It’s easier to get started and delivers new or improved features that existing customers want most.”
