Intuit has joined forces with Qlik, integrating the QlikView advanced analytics platform into its QuickBooks Enterprise.
Intuit’s QuickBooks Enterprise now includes free usage of QuickBooks Advanced Reporting for active subscribers, which allows users to take their QuickBooks data and build any report necessary.
QlikView then enables users to build custom visualizstions for their businesses, including seeking out and discovering new trends, extrapolating theories and proving whether or not new techniques are worth the time and financial investments put into them. Intuit has added that it may used Qlik Sense in later releases of QuickBooks Enterprise, which would allow it to maintain enterprise-wide governance while creating instant value from data models.
“Information can be a powerful tool for accounting staff. If presented effectively, it can be the determining factor that leads to a business’s success or its failure,” said Christof Majer, VP of global partner sales at Qlik. “Through our partnership with Intuit, customers benefit from a one-stop tool that not only helps them with accounting processes, but also enables them analyse their data to make better financial decisions.”
“Our partnership with Qlik is all about helping small businesses and accounting professionals globally use data as a strategic asset,” said Rob Lips, VP/GM QuickBooks Desktop. “The Advanced Reporting tool adds significant value to our Enterprise users by enabling them to leverage all of their existing QuickBooks data, visualise it and explore the information freely. This enables business owners to discover untapped insights into how their business is running, and employees to become a smarter resource to their organisation.”
