Managing Director of Intuit Australia, Nicolette Maury, said the integration with Shopify will allow merchants to automatically update and transfer accounting data, freeing time for company owners to focus on growing their business, not managing the technology behind it.
And, Maury says that although the Australian launch dates are yet to be confirmed, both integrations are a “great example of how Intuit has turned QuickBooks Online into the world’s leading small business cloud platform, offering tailored solutions that meet the unique needs of the broad range of small businesses”.
“Delivering the integration between QuickBooks Online and Shopify is all about removing a major pain point for businesses that operate online by automatically reconciling sales data. We want to empower users to spend less time balancing the books and more time focused on what they love about running their business.”
Harley Finkelstein, Chief Platform Officer at Shopify, said the company is excited to be working with Intuit to provide the resources businesses need to efficiently handle their accounting. “Many of our merchants are not necessarily experts at bookkeeping. That is why this integration is so important to the success of their businesses. It’s seamless, efficient and simple.”
Priority access to QuickBooks Online powered by Shopify will be available to the company’s current merchants who sell online, in physical retail locations and on the go.
With Bigcommerce, Maury said Intuit planned to deliver major time savings to online retailers nationwide via a seamless integration between QuickBooks and the Australian-born ecommerce platform.
Maury says the initiative will allow accounting data to flow and be updated automatically for online merchants, “empowering them to spend less time balancing the books and more time focused on business growth”.
“This integration will give back precious time to busy retailers by facilitating the automatic transfer of transactions from their web store to their QuickBooks Online account. It streamlines the bookkeeping process and provides a new level of business efficiency for online businesses.”
Maury reiterated the online spending by Australians of $16.6 billon last year and the “thriving’ online retail sector. “We’re delighted to be joining forces with Bigcommerce and believe this integration will help online businesses thrive by making the accounting process seamless and invisible.”
Melanie Kalemba, Senior Vice President of Sales and Strategic Business Development at Bigcommerce, said the integration is a result of a shared vision and will bring best-in-class expertise to its merchants.
“Bigcommerce is focused on bringing ecommerce to every retail business owner. The retail industry functions online, in physical stores and everywhere in between, so together with Intuit, we’re working to connect those channels to make business more efficient.” Bigcommerce retailers in the US will be the first to integrate QuickBooks Online, with support for merchants in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom to come.
