Intuit QuickBooks has added an apps tab within QuickBooks Online Accountant. Users can add apps directly to clients’ QuickBooks Online and their own firm’s free version of QuickBooks. Accountants can also help clients find the right app stack for their specific needs through the solutions available via the tab. Once an app is selected, books are synced and ready to use. When adding apps on behalf of clients, accountants are able to ensure the collected data is organized and in the correct place within QuickBooks. When adding apps on behalf of their firm, they can customize settings and optimize performance.
