Today Intuit announced the next iteration of its QuickBooks for Mac, which will hit the streets September 26. Aimed at small businesses, QuickBooks for Mac 2012 has more than 50 new features, and last week Intuit gave us a demo of four of them.
For years now, autumn brings more than the new school year and Halloween. It also signals Intuit’s annual update of its QuickBooks for Mac bookkeeping software. This year’s version sports a few new features and—for the first time—upgrade pricing, but the stand-out addition is multiple-user support. Windows users have long collaborated on a single company file with up to five simultaneous users, and Mac owners are finally able to do the same. But we’re not all invited to the same party. Your QuickBooks sharing can be all-Mac or all-PC (using the PC version), but never the twain shall meet. Sigh.
