We’re not in the business of necessarily pushing Quickbooks in preference to other packages like Xero, MYOB, Cash Manager, Bank Link or the many others. But if you are a Quickbooks user and you haven’t yet upgraded to the 2010 / 11 version, this seems like a no-brainer:
The QuickBooks 2011/12 release is less than a month away - and if users of older versions upgrade to QuickBooks 2010/11 now, you will be entitled to an additional free upgrade all the way to version 2011/12. This offer applies to those who upgrade to 2010 / 11 from 16 April until the official release of version 2011 / 12 on 16 June.
The Quickbooks promotional material lists the new features of the 2011/12 version as follows:
Customisable company snapshot. The new company snapshot tool allows you to customise fields and graphs to design a ‘snapshot’ that presents the most significant information that impacts your business decisions – with the ability to drill down into transaction, customer or supplier details. Office 2010 compatible. With the 2011 / 2012 version it is easier to export data from QuickBooks into Microsoft Office 2003, 2007 and 2010. Wildcard search. The wildcard search feature makes it easier to find customers and suppliers.
Free upgrade redemption forms will be included in the QuickBooks 2010/11 box. To redeem your free upgrade you need to ensure this form is filled out and send back to Reckon no later than 16 June. And if you don’t have a redemption form, here’s >>>one you can download as a pdf.
