Premium Apps for QuickBooks Online Advanced Speed Workflow


CPAs and accountants know their clients would rather spend time in their business than on their business. One of the ways to do that is to recommend third-party apps that integrate with QuickBooks Online. Apps handle tasks, speed workflow, enable productivity, and help businesses – and even your own firm – be more efficient.

If you’re running your accounting on QuickBooks Online Advanced, you can help your clients tailor their software to work seamlessly with a growing suite of best-in-class apps, add-ons, and purpose-built integrations offering exclusive capabilities for Advanced customers. With Advanced’s Premium Apps, QuickBooks becomes a hub for managing all of the workflows that help your clients work smarter and grow faster – all from one place.

For small- and mid-size businesses, the manual tasks associated with preparing and sending estimates are often inefficient and take time away from serving customers. Intuit® recently launched the DocuSign eSignature Connector by QuickBooks to help small businesses digitally sign estimates directly from QuickBooks® Online Advanced (Advanced). In addition to time, customers can save an average of $36 per contract by reducing hard costs and improving employee productivity.

  • Go digital for a faster, more secure turnaround of estimates using e-signature to help close deals quicker.
  • Streamline sales by automating the estimate process, so growing businesses can move from quote to cash faster.
  • Stay on top of progress with notifications of their DocuSign documents, so they can follow up with next steps immediately.
