Demandforce Delivers Integration With Intuit QuickBooks
Automates Marketing and Communications for Small Businesses
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- November 01, 2012
Take Intuit’s best-selling small business financial management software.
Combine it with Demandforce’s leading online marketing and communication
service. The result: an opportunity for 4 million QuickBooks^® users to better
engage with customers, drive higher retention and grow their businesses.
Just six months after Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) acquired Demandforce, the two
companies have integrated their flagship products to create a comprehensive
marketing and customer communications tool that taps into the power of
QuickBooks data. The new service will offer small businesses a seamless way to
market their companies like never before.
“We were impressed by Demandforce’s next-generation, software-as-a-service
offering that provides high-value to small businesses,” said Kiran Patel,
executive vice president and general manager of Intuit’s Small Business Group.
“Integrating Demandforce with QuickBooks is a natural progression for the
business and a real win for our customers.”
By using the Intuit Partner Platform, Demandforce automatically pulls key
customer and transaction data from QuickBooks. This access to customer
information lets small businesses target and customize their outreach efforts.
After transactions are completed and an invoice has been created, Demandforce
automatically sends a “thank you” email to capture consumer reviews and
satisfaction survey data.
“Our vision has always been to help small business thrive in an Internet
economy,” said Rick Berry, president of Demandforce. “Intuit Partner Platform
has enabled us to quickly provide an integrated solution which is even more
rewarding now that we are under one roof. This is not only beneficial for
QuickBooks users, but more importantly to our current user base, as it further
exposes them to more consumers in the Demandforce Network.”
By connecting with QuickBooks, users can be up and running on Demandforce in
one day, without having to enter any data. The powerful software has generated
$3 billion in client revenues for customers and prompted 2.4 million consumer
reviews. There are also 37 million consumers connected to the Demandforce
Network that helps increase a small business’ exposure.
