QuickBooks 2013 Announced
Intuit has just announced the release of QuickBooks 2013 (today – 9/10/2012) – view the announcement here.
According to Intuit, this year, a top request that they heard from customers like you was to make the product easier to use so you could work more efficiently – no additional features, just a better experience. As Intuit began planning for the release of QuickBooks 2013, they determined that updating the look and feel was a key way to deliver on their objective to make QuickBooks easier to use. They felt there was an opportunity to remove some of the complexity and clutter while also creating more consistency across the product.
They were very deliberate about the design decisions they made because they understand how critical QuickBooks is to the small businesses that depend on them. For example, they wanted to put more focus on the places you do most of your work – like forms, centers, and registers – so they made those areas of the product brighter while using dark colors in the left navigation and top icon bars. And they increased font sizes selectively throughout QuickBooks 2013 to draw attention to key fields, such as invoice details and totals. They even worked closely with customers during the process to ensure the changes would help improve ease and efficiency.
Did they succeed? Are you curious as to what the new version looks like? Here’s a sneak peak!
We’ll be hosting a special QuickBooks for Contractors hangout on Google+ on Wednesday 9/12/2012 – for more details about the hangout visit our sister site – Learn to use QuickBooks in your construction business. We will be recording this hangout and it will be available on our YouTube channel, if you aren’t able to attend the live event.
