QBO App Demo

On October 6th, we had the pleasure of having Scott Stonehocker, a product manager with Intuit, give us a demo of the QBO App.

The new QuickBooks App for Windows Marries the Cloud with a Desktop

Here are some of our favorite takeaways from the demo:

  • The QBO App is available for Mac and Windows users..
  • You can be auto-logged in with the QBO App at all times.
  • The QBO App is basically shell for QBO. Looks the same but you aren’t using a browser.
  • Differences between QBO v. QBO App – You have a QuickBooks menu at the top, similar to Desktop.
  • Differences between QBO v. QBO App – You have a navigation bar to go back and forth, refresh, or change company files.
  • The QBO App has a favorites area so you can create one-click options to increase productivity.
  • Just like QBO, they will keep on adding enhancements to the QBO App as time goes on.
  • You can have multiple windows open in the QBO App and the data will refresh in the other windows.
  • The screens load super crazy fast in the QBO App, saving you even more time.
  • Data is cached with the QBO App which makes the system able to perform faster.
  • The QBO App works really well for people that just don’t have quick internet speeds.
  • You can use shortcuts, drag and drop, right-clicks to help increase your usability of QBO by using the QBO App.
  • If you have both a Mac and a Windows machine, you won’t notice much difference between the QBO Apps on either platform.
