Today, Intuit announced what’s new in QuickBooks for Mac 2013. Updates help small businesses work more productively so they spend less time managing their finances and more time building their businesses. Here’s what’s new:
Get Started Quickly. The new Data Import feature simplifies the process of getting key information into QuickBooks by automating the process of importing contacts from the Address Book. Users can also copy and paste contact or item information (i.e. items they buy or sell) from spreadsheets. To help first-time QuickBooks users get started quickly, QuickBooks for Mac 2013 also delivers an improved new-user experience. The Guide Me Plus feature offers tutorials, tips, and how-to videos that offer in-product guidance at the moment it’s needed.
Get Records Organized. Small business owners will have the information they need right at their fingertips with the new Document Attachments feature, which attaches contracts, proposals, receipts, and more to related records for easy reference. This new feature helps users save time by having quick access to documents when and where they need them.
Simplify Common Tasks. Eliminating steps with common and sometimes repetitive tasks helps save time and reduce errors. Batch Invoicing streamlines the process of invoicing multiple customers for the same service by creating a template and invoicing all customers simultaneously. Improved Reconciliation helps minimize errors and easily identifies discrepancies through optimized filters and searches when reconciling QuickBooks data with bank statements. The new integration with Intuit PaymentNetwork enables small businesses to get paid faster by providing a way for a small business’s customers to instantly pay their invoices electronically. Each transaction costs a flat rate of $0.50 per bank payment.
QuickBooks for Mac 2013 is scheduled to be available directly from Intuit beginning September 24 and from participating retailers on October 7.
