MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With QuickBooks Point of Sale 2013, small business retailers can now use the latest mobile technology to maximize sales both in and out of the store without sacrificing the powerful tools they need to run their business.
The newest point-of-sale product from Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), being launched today, integrates with GoPayment, the company’s mobile payment processing application. Together, the products form one of the only robust mobile point-of-sale solutions specifically designed for the nation’s 2.8 million small retailers. Using QuickBooks Point of Sale 2013, retailers can:
- Maximize sales by accepting credit cards in the aisle or on the go at street fairs and trade shows using GoPayment on the most popular smartphones and tablets.
- Make better business decisions with detailed reporting and powerful tools to track inventory, sales, customers and employees.
- Grow their business, giving brick-and-mortar retailers a new way to better serve customers while offering micro businesses room to expand from a mobile-only retailer to a store front owner.
“With 10 years of point of sale experience, we understand the challenges small retailers face when trying to grow their business,” said Chris Hylen, vice president and general manager of Intuit’s Payment Solutions division. “By integrating QuickBooks Point of Sale 2013 with GoPayment, we’re liberating retailers from their cash registers so they can better serve their customers and ring up more sales both in the store and on the go.”
The integration of QuickBooks Point of Sale with GoPayment enables more of Intuit’s small business customers – from pet shops to hair stylists – to better manage their businesses and serve the roughly 23 million customers who rely on them.
