QuickBooks Online Wins 'Awesome Application' Award

Honor Recognizes Integration, Ease-of-Use and Design

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Oct. 22, 2012 – QuickBooks Online was selected as one of the 2013 Awesome Applications by The Sleeter Group, a company dedicated to researching the marketplace and finding the best accounting technology solutions to help small business work smarter, faster and more efficiently.

With thousands of accounting and management programs on the market for small businesses, the Awesome Applications award signifies that QuickBooks Online, with more than 1.3 million paying customers worldwide, is among the most productive and effective technologies, and that it meets the highest standards of design, ease-of-use, and conformance with appropriate accounting standards.

QuickBooks Online and its suite of connected applications deliver a complete financial management solution to any small business. Instead of making due with a patchwork of many separate back-office solutions, small business owners can personalize an all-in-one financial management experience that runs the back office so they can be more productive and focus on running their businesses. Currently, more than 360,000 small businesses are using QuickBooks Online. Since its beta rollout in July 2012, small businesses in 130 countries have started using the product.

As the largest network of small business technology consultants, The Sleeter Group has members throughout the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. The awards were formally announced on October 22 at the 2012 Accounting Solutions Conference in Anaheim, CA. The annual event draws hundreds of accountants, bookkeepers, consultants and IT professionals, providing them with educational opportunities presented by industry experts, thought leaders and technology developers.

“QuickBooks Online earned the Awesome Applications award because it streamlines and automates time-consuming accounting tasks like creating invoices, estimates, bills, reports, and checks, so small business owners can focus on growing their business,” said Doug Sleeter, the founder and president of The Sleeter Group. “By enhancing business programs like QuickBooks Online with the addition of these capabilities, small and mid-sized companies are able to spend less time on their accounting and more on their business.
