Intuit QuickBooks has long heard that a lack of visibility across their practice is a key pain point for accountants and bookkeepers, impacting workflow management and productivity. With the onset of COVID-19 leaving many practices now working remotely, this has only become a more serious challenge.
To support those looking to increase efficiency and productivity, Intuit QuickBooks is thrilled to announce it has extended our partnership with work management software firm Karbon to Australian users.
Karbon’s platform makes team collaboration and communication seamless and transparent by tracking every client communication, task and interaction, allowing firms to quickly see what has occurred on a job and where it’s progressed to. In addition to seeing who is working on which job at any time, from anywhere, the solution enables firms to easily allocate work to team members.
The partnership is expected to help Australian accountants and bookkeepers to increase collaboration and productivity among staff and better manage workflows.
It was the success of the partnership in the US, along with feedback from Australian users, that led Intuit QuickBooks Australia to bring the benefit of the Karbon partnership here. The initial partnership was launched in the US in February and is now available to all Intuit QuickBooks’ users in Australia.
This latest update comes on the heels of other recent QuickBooks updates, each designed to help customers access government stimulus benefits, including JobKeeper.
Lachlan Macindoe, Head of Marketing at Karbon, says the decision to launch in Australia was logical given how many accounting firms were benefitting from the partnership since its roll-out in the US market and the current restrictions on office-based work.
“At a time when most accountants have suddenly found themselves working from home, the timing for launching this partnership in Australia couldn’t be better. More firms that need to quickly align their distributed teams will be able to benefit from the enhanced visibility, efficiency and collaboration that Karbon provides,” Macindoe says.
