Intuit’s Mobile Efforts Look to Make Big Splash on The Small Screen

Intuit’s dominance in the realm of mobile solutions for business owners is growing at a rapid pace.

Late last week, the venerable name in business and financial management solutions, raised the curtain on its next generation of mobile products that will expand its portfolio of connected services.

According to Intuit, these range from innovations that will make it easier for the smallest of businesses to accept credit card payments, to others that will help doctors and patients communicate quickly, to a banking application that allows consumers to deposit a check from anywhere with just their mobile phone.

This new lineup debuted at the company’s Innovation Gallery Walk, a showcase of more than 20 mobile solutions designed to help Intuit’s 50 million customers manage and improve their financial lives.

More than 35 million people already use Intuit connected services, the company says. Collectively they generated 62% of the company’s revenue in fiscal year 2011 – nearly $2.4 billion – and are expected to grow to 75 percent of revenue by 2015.

“As our customers’ technology tools of choice increasingly become mobile devices we’re moving with them, creating innovative new offerings in every category we serve,” says Brad Smith, Intuit’s president and chief executive officer. “Connected services are driving customer acquisition and revenue growth in all of our businesses and mobile is accelerating these trends.”

Intuit is harnessing the power of mobile to solve important customer problems in new and innovative ways. Recent successes include SnapTax, the first start-to-finish tax prep app on a smartphone, and GoPayment, a mobile app and credit card reader that lets small businesses process credit cards on mobile devices, no matter where they are.
