Intuit Forms Alliance to Deliver Live Online Advice
Keen - Your Personal Advisor, and Intuit have announced a multi-year agreement to deliver tax and accounting advice to consumers and small businesses.
Under the agreement, customers using Intuit's TurboTax software, TurboTax for the Web, and QuickBooks programs including QuickBooks Payroll solutions will be able to link from these products to co-branded pages hosted by Keen, providing customers with the ability to immediately access advice, either live over the phone or as an arranged service via e-mail.
In addition, potentially thousands of Intuit tax and accounting professionals will join the rapidly growing community of KeenSpeakers, those who sell their advice on Keen, giving them the opportunity to provide live, immediate advice to TurboTax and QuickBooks customers as well as to Keen's more than five million registered members.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
