UPDATE: I wanted to fill you in on a new program we’re running to help QuickBooks 2011 users get up and running quickly called Get Started Right. Within the first 30-days after registering their products, new users have the opportunity to call in to an Intuit agent for free one-on-one guidance about the product and getting started. Learn more here.
I’m very pleased to share that we at Intuit announced QuickBooks 2011 today! Thank you so much for all of your feedback about how we can better serve your financial management needs with QuickBooks. Product development at Intuit relies on your requests and recommendations to make solutions that set up small businesses for success. In QuickBooks 2011, we zeroed in on helping you save time in the back office. We know you didn’t start your business to do your books, so we want QuickBooks to help you get back to doing what you love.
QuickBooks Pro and Premier 2011 will be available for purchase beginning Sept. 27 (more information here). Here’s a sneak peek of what’s new:
Get Faster Access to Insights
- Customer Snapshot offers a consolidated view of an individual customer’s purchase history, average days to pay, and outstanding balance. This helps small businesses make timely decisions on customer requests.
- QuickBooks Search lets users quickly locate any customer, account, report or invoice details within their QuickBooks repository with a simple keyword search.
- Customer and Vendor History provides at-a-glance views of important customer and vendor details, such as history, estimates and past orders, on a single screen.
- Balance Sheet by Class provides a way for QuickBooks Premier users to separately track multiple funds, departments or locations in a single, easy-to-access report.
Make Everyday Tasks More Efficient
- Batch Invoicing lets small businesses owners who often bill many customers for the same service streamline the process by creating one template invoice to send to all related customers.
- Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail Integration allows businesses to easily send invoices, estimates, and other e-mails from their preferred webmail service directly from QuickBooks.
- Collections Center helps users to quickly identify overdue and almost-due invoices, and then directly e-mail collection notices from their Outlook, Yahoo, Gmail, or Hotmail accounts.
- Intuit PaymentNetwork (sold separately) provides a way for a small business’s customers to instantly pay their invoices.
- QuickBooks Connect (sold separately) provides access to essential QuickBooks customer and transaction data on the web or on a mobile phone. Users can create and manage invoices, pull customer information, check the status of a payment, and get real-time answers to questions on the go. Secure data automatically syncs with QuickBooks, so users will always have the most up-to-date information at their fingertips.
I can’t wait to hear what you think of QuickBooks 2011. In the meantime, I’m curious to know what feature you’re most excited for?
