MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intuit (Nasdaq: INTU) and Square today announced a seamless integration between Square and QuickBooks. Built on Intuit’s open platform, the integration will enable small businesses to more efficiently import their transactions from Square into QuickBooks helping them streamline their operations, save time and ensure accurate reporting. The offering will be available on November 19.
“By rebuilding QuickBooks as an open platform, small businesses can choose to use services we provide as well as the solutions they already use and love, like Square,” said Dan Wernikoff, senior vice president and general manager of Intuit Small Business Financial Solutions.
QuickBooks, available in 100 countries, provides small businesses and accountants with an intuitive, easy-to-use design that gives small businesses access to a robust, open platform that is impossible to outgrow and works anytime, anywhere online.
“Square is focused on helping businesses grow,” said Francoise Brougher, business lead at Square. “Our customers tell us often how important it is to have accurate and in-depth information about their business. Integrating with QuickBooks gives sellers another powerful tool to help them run their business more efficiently.”
Square is making sophisticated, big-business tools simple, easy to use, and available to anyone. Neighborhood merchants of all sizes are increasingly adopting Square Register at the counter for its intuitive interface, smart analytics, continuous updates and simple processing fees.
Intuit and Square will begin offering the integration on November 19. Existing customers of both companies will be able to activate the integration seamlessly, while new customers to either company will be able to sign up quickly and easily for both Square Register and QuickBooks. Intuit will continue to offer the full range of Intuit Payment Solutions offerings, including GoPayment, to all of its customers.
