It’s been a LONG TIME since my last post here on Allbusiness.com, please accept my apologies…it’s the first of October and a new commitment to write more than I have in the past…not only to increase my own skills both writing and in QuickBooks but also to keep our readers informed about what is going on and to answer questions regarding QuickBooks. Please send your questions our way, we’ll answer them for you if at all possible.
All of that being said, here is the QuickBooks 2009 Press Release…
Major Upgrade Boosts Productivity, Provides Business Insights and Helps Attract New Customers
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.-Sept. 29, 2008 – Small businesses and accountants will find more ways to get ahead and make more money with the new version of QuickBooks?, the best-selling small business financial software from Intuit Inc.

The launch of QuickBooks 2009 builds on Intuit’s Small Business “Connected Services” strategy and brings together powerful online services such as free Web site creation and hosting for one year, and better online banking. Also new this year is Live Community, which connects QuickBooks users directly to Intuit’s Small Business Community so they can quickly have their questions answered by hundreds of thousands of accountants, experts and other small businesses like themselves, helping them get back to running their business.

Get Productive and Save Time
New and improved features help small businesses and accountants save time and become more productive, so they can spend more time doing what they do best.
- Client Data Review: One of the biggest new features in QuickBooks 2009, Client Data Review will increase accountants’ productivity by helping them find and correct their clients’ errors. Accountants can review and fix errors in account balances, charts of accounts and several other categories, all from a single screen. This feature saves accountants more than 30 percent of time spent on each client, resulting in hundreds of hours saved per year.
- Online Banking: One of the top requested features, online banking saves users time on data entry and increases the accuracy of their financial records by easily connecting to and downloading transactions from their participating financial institution directly into QuickBooks. Small businesses can gain control of their cash flow by seeing which checks have cleared their accounts, which transactions are pending, and get up-to-date account balances, all in one place.
