Small business Android fans now have the freedom to complete financial
management tasks wherever, whenever, on their favorite Android tablets.
Design updates to QuickBooks Mobile for Android optimize the app for
tablets, and make it easier to navigate and use on any mobile device.
The app is available to download for QuickBooks
Online subscribers on Google
Play at no additional cost.
QuickBooks Online, from Intuit
Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), is the No. 1 small business cloud accounting
solution. Nearly 400,000 companies and 1.3 million users improve
productivity with QuickBooks Online and its suite of Intuit and third-party
apps. As the most comprehensive companion app of its kind,
QuickBooks Mobile enables small businesses to access customer
information, create, send and review estimates and invoices, and record
payments from Apple
QuickBooks Mobile offers Android tablet users the same functionality
provided to Android phone users, but with a native tablet experience.
The app serves a burgeoning market of small businesses that want to
accomplish more work on mobile devices. Industry analysts say the trend
is on the fast track, with Android claiming a significant share:
32.5 percent of small businesses currently own tablets, and 31.6
percent plan to purchase tablets in the next 12 months, according to
an IDC report published in October.
31.9 percent of small businesses purchased or planned to purchase
tablets in 2012 to substitute laptops, according to an iGR study
released in March.
The number of global tablet and smartphone users will surpass the
number of PC users by July 2013, based on projections from KPCB
partner Mary Meeker in a November presentation. She also noted that
Android adoption is growing six times faster than that of iPhones.
"Small business owners want to get more done everyday, so mobile apps
afford them a fantastic way to stay organized and productive from either
their computers or mobile devices," said Dan Wernikoff, senior vice
president and general manager of Intuit's Financial Management Solutions
division. "In the past year, we've seen our QuickBooks Mobile users
triple, and adoption amongst Android phone users outpace iPhone users.
"With tablets becoming pervasive, we're creating QuickBooks Mobile
experiences that take full advantage of the devices' unique capabilities
to help small businesses save time managing their finances. Today we're
giving customers what they want - a native tablet experience for our
fast-growing population of Android users."
