Toronto, June 8, 2021— Intuit Canada, makers of QuickBooks, Canada’s leading financial management software, and Dataswitcher, a Netherlands-based technology company serving small & medium sized businesses and accounting professionals, have teamed up to bring a solution to accountants and SMEs who wish to transfer their books to QuickBooks Online.

In this alliance, Dataswitcher’s technology will enable accountants and bookkeepers to transfer their historical data from an outside accounting software over to QuickBooks Online’s suite of tools seamlessly, reducing the heavy lifting of manual conversion on accounting professionals and ensuring they can pick up where they left off.

This new feature is available without charge to customers wishing to transfer up to 2 years of data from Sage50 and Xero over to QuickBooks Online, and based on Dataswitcher’s calculations, ensures 90% of all successful migrations are completed in under 13 minutes, with conversions being completed within 48 hours. Customers are able to select the level of historic data they wish to bring along, including historical transactions, supplier data and balances and customer details (additional fees may apply).

“We know how important it is to the business advisor and their clients that the details of their books come along with them easily when moving to a cloud-based solution like QuickBooks Online. We wanted to provide them with an automated solution that they feel confident provides them with all of the data they need to continue to serve their clients,” said Aston Byfield, Chief Revenue Officer at Dataswitcher.

Intuit QuickBooks is the trusted partner of small businesses and accounting professionals helping customers manage complexity and achieve success. QuickBooks’ connected ecosystem provides small businesses with valuable insights to run their business, while helping their accountant and bookkeeping customers save time, grow their practice and help their clients succeed.

“We’re excited to be teaming up with Dataswitcher to encourage an easy transition for our customers. The time of both a small business and an accounting professional is valuable and we know that accuracy is vital, this alliance provides us with an opportunity to efficiently connect customers with our cloud-based suite of tools that will help them manage the day-to-day of running a business easily and all in one place,” said Gary Drysdale, Director of Sales, Intuit QuickBooks Canada.
