Mountain View, California (PRESS RELEASE – May 16, 2011) – Small business owners and accounting professionals don’t have to cut summer vacations short to make sure employees get paid.
Intuit Inc. (NASDAQ:INTU) recently announced that its Intuit Online Payroll Mobile app enables busy employers and now accounting professionals to run payroll wherever they go, without their computer, even on vacation.
The Intuit Online Payroll Mobile app is part of Intuit’s Online Payroll service and works with iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. The app was introduced in the App Store last October and is now available to a broader group of online payroll users. It now also enables accounting professionals to manage their clients’ payroll while out of the office.
Intuit is the No. 1 small business payroll provider in the U.S. with more than 1 million customers.
“Unlike my computer, my phone is with me all the time,” said Karen Wagner, bookkeeper at Wagner Communications, Inc., Danville, Ill. “Now, when I am traveling and it happens to be pay day, I simply log into Intuit Online Payroll app from my iPhone, type in the hours and approve and all my employees are paid. It’s easy to use and run payroll from my iPhone – even easier than doing it from my computer. I spent my vacation in Florida and still paid my employees using my phone on their scheduled pay date.”
Flexibility and mobility are becoming increasingly important to professionals who no longer want to be tied to a computer or office.
“More and more business owners and accountants are looking for the flexibility and convenience when trying to run their business on the go,” said Nora Denzel, general manager of Intuit’s Employee Management Solutions division. “Our Online Payroll Mobile app now lets them stay on top of payroll whether they’re at a client’s office or sitting by the pool.”
