Intuit picks up inventory app maker Lettuce to mix with QuickBooks

Summary:Lettuce is headed to the cornerstone of Intuit's financial software suite, QuickBooks Online.

Intuit has dished out some lettuce to pick up Lettuce, a startup that set out to build apps intended to streamline entire order fulfillment process.

Founded in 2012, the Venice, Calif.-based company caters to small businesses with a portfolio of cloud-based apps for cataloging online inventory and order management.

Lettuce CEO Raad Mobrem reflected on the merger in a blog post on Thursday, remarking that "while this is a big step for Lettuce, it doesn’t mean that much will change."

Intuit reps credited Lettuce for already belonging to its Partner Platform, touting that "the vast majority of Lettuce customers already utilize the QuickBooks integration available."

Thus, it is no surprise that Lettuce is headed to the cornerstone of Intuit's financial software suite, QuickBooks Online.

Lettuce's technology will be integrated into QuickBooks primarily for the addition of the aforementioned online management capabilities.

Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
