QuickBooks introduces conversion tools for defunct Microsoft Office Accounting

Intuit is extending a helping hand to small businesses affected by the discontinuation of Microsoft Office Accounting, the small business accounting software alternative to programs like QuickBooks. Effective this week, Microsoft Office Accounting is no longer being distributed. 

The QuickBooks maker is providing a free conversion tool that will help former Microsoft Office Accounting users seamlessly transfer their small business accounting data to QuickBooks products. 
The free QuickBooks Conversion Tooleasily imports business data, balances, and transactions so customers can continue running their businesses without missing a beat. It converts data from Microsoft Small Business Accounting and Office Accounting products through the 2009 versions into QuickBooks Pro, Premier, and Enterprise Solutions editions.
The conversion tool can also convert Microsoft Office Accounting Express to QuickBooks Simple Start 2010. The tool includes a short and straightforward setup process, moving all data into a newly created QuickBooks file, leaving existing data untouched.
“We are committed to helping small businesses be as successful as possible,” said Kiran Patel, executive vice president and general manager of Intuit’s Small Business Group. “We know that many Microsoft customers will soon be looking for new accounting software so they can keep on top of their finances. The QuickBooks team will take them through the transition and help them streamline critical accounting tasks and connect to new online services as soon as possible.”
Assistance in Making the Transition
Intuit representatives are available at 1-866-676-9668 to assist Microsoft customers in making the transition and to provide advice on which QuickBooks product will best support their business. Further information is also available at the QuickBooks Web site.
QuickBooks 2010 is part of a family of financial software and services from Intuit. For more information on Intuit solutions, visit:
