Intuit continues mobile march with ProFile Connect app

Late last year, financial software developer Intuit released a mobile app version of QuickBooks Online its cloud-based bookkeeping software for SMBs. Now it’s continuing its app development trend by releasing a mobile version of ProFile, its software for professional tax preparers.

The ProFile Connect app, available for iPhone and iPod touch, allows a ProFile Connect user to securely access client data, possible saving a late-night visit back to the office to make an urgent change, according to Intuit.

“It’s tax season and your customers expect you to be available, but your kids also want you cheering for them at their hockey game. Now you can do both,” said Jeff Cates, managing director of Intuit Canada, in a statement. “ProFile Connect is the first mobile app designed specifically to help Canadian tax pros serve their customers from anywhere, at any time.”

The app allows secure access to client lists, key T1 tax fields, a PDF copy of their entire TY2012 return, and more. As it’s a cloud-based application, no data is stored on the phone, and Intuit stresses that “bank-level encryption technology” is used.

With ProFile connect, tax preparers can access client data on their iPhone.

Besides the mobile app, Intuit also notes sever other improvements to the 2013 edition of ProFile, such as an improved tape tool that can be set with a mouse click and can add subtotals, improved performance for speedier batch carry-forwards and batch EFILE, and dual monitor support. It also now integrates with Practice Management 2013 from Office Tools Professional.
