QuickBooks Online Now Available to Mac Users on Safari

Improved iPhone Features Also Offered

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – May. 05, 2009 – Business owners who use a Mac can easily stay on top of their finances when and where they want using QuickBooks® Online, now available on the Safari® browser.

QuickBooks Online accounting software, from Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), keeps accounting simple so that businesses can focus on making money. Without any accounting background, business owners can easily create professional-looking invoices, pay bills and track expenses no matter where they are – their home office, a client’s site or an Internet café.

Along with new Safari support, QuickBooks Online offers improved mobile Web-browser features for the iPhone™ that let users manage more of their business on the go like creating and sending invoices. 

“As promised, we’re pleased to now give Mac users the ability to use QuickBooks Online on Safari,” said Heather Kirkby, QuickBooks group product manager. “With QuickBooks Online we’re making it easier for business owners to work the way they want – whether that’s on a Mac, PC or mobile phone.”

Mac users give QuickBooks Online high marks.

“Since 2700 miles separate our offices, we needed an online accounting tool to bridge the gap,” said Scott Wolfe, owner of Wolfe Law, a boutique law firm in Seattle and New Orleans. “We chose QuickBooks because it’s the standard. As we run exclusively on Macs, we used virtualization software to use QuickBooks Online, while we anxiously waited for it to support Safari. And now it does!  As a result, we’re able to work a lot faster in the program now that we’re not using a workaround.”
