What’s new about this version of QuickBooks Online?

Intuit is launching the next generation of QuickBooks Online.  The new design and experience is focused on:

◾Ease of use, incredible insights and fast performance that includes the power of QuickBooks Online you expect

◾An open platform that provides access to the Intuit ecosystem of small business tools and deep, seamless app integrations that feel more like activating new features than on-boarding new products

◾A mobile-first approach to enable business anytime, anywhere, on any compatible, internet-connected device

What new features can I expect from the latest version of QuickBooks Online?

The all-new QuickBooks has an updated design to help you get tasks done faster with seamless connectivity to all your devices. Additionally, you can now easily manage your whole business from the home screen and get paid in more ways. So you can now complete tasks faster.

 Why now?

We’re reimagining the design and user experience of QuickBooks Online to exceed today’s consumer expectations for what web and mobile apps should do. The QuickBooks Online platform will offer a cohesive and consistent experience across apps and devices through tight integrations with Intuit products and third-party apps.

Rapid innovation in mobile and web design the past few years has raised the bar for consumer expectations. People expect apps to solve any problem they might have in a moment of need (“there’s an app for that”), and they expect apps to deliver delightfully easy experiences across the board. The new normal for “easy” means little to no data entry, a personalised experience and seamlessly integrated apps.

I am an existing QuickBooks Online user, when can I get my hands on it?

We are taking great care to ensure a smooth transition for all of our users. The new update will be rolled out in waves over the next several months. When your account is ready to be updated you will get instructions via email and be prompted during login.

I am an existing QuickBooks customer, using the Desktop version; will I get the new QuickBooks when moving to Online?

If you currently use our Desktop version and want to move to QuickBooks Online, you will receive the new updated version of QuickBooks Online.

 Hmm, I’m sceptical. I JUST mastered the old QuickBooks Online.

Don’t worry, the new experience packs the same great features into a new design that makes tasks easier and faster to complete. The result is a simple experience that will be instantly familiar and easy to learn. Our support team will also be on hand to help you should you have any questions.

Aren’t you just bringing QuickBooks Online up to speed with other online accounting solutions? 

Actually, QuickBooks is currently the number one cloud accounting solution for small businesses worldwide with several million customers! This new look and feel takes our already best-in-class product to a new level.

How much does it cost?

If you are currently paying for a QuickBooks Online product there will be no change in how much you pay going forward. This is simply an update to your product and does not cost any extra.
