Intuit announced Thursday the release of a new QuickBooks app for Mac. Intuit says the app enables users to access the online accounting software from any Mac OS computer and automatically syncs data across multiple devices.
Key features of the app include menu bar notifications for real-time alerts, multi-window support and keyboard shortcuts, according to Intuit.
Intuit's Dan Wernikoff, SVP and GM of Intuit's Small Business Group, said the app is part of the company's bigger strategy to build an open ecosystem:
"Small business owners who use a Mac can now access the power of the QuickBooks Online ecosystem while working with the operating system they know and love. This is another example of how we’ve turned QuickBooks into an open ecosystem of business management solutions that can be accessed from any device."
