Intuit has joined together with Tradeshift, whose free cloud software provides a platform for business interactions, to streamline commerce for Intuit’s small business customers and make it easier to manage the way they work with trading partners around key tasks like invoicing.
The planned integration will see Intuit’s accounting and payments products connect directly with a free account on Tradeshift’s cloud platform.
Small businesses in the UK will be the first to benefit from the partnership via a free app that connects Tradeshift with QuickBooks Online.
With this app users can today:
- Import customers from QuickBooks Online to Tradeshift
- Export Tradeshift invoices to QuickBooks Online
- Synchronise QuickBooks Online contacts with Tradeshift without creating duplicates.
The app will be enhanced with additional functionality over time.
Mark Little, vice president and UK managing director for Intuit, said:
“Large enterprises are increasingly asking their suppliers to transact on electronic trading platforms.
“Connecting QuickBooks Online with Tradeshift makes it easier and less time consuming for small businesses to comply with their enterprise customers’ e-invoicing mandates – helping them get paid faster.”
Tradeshift is used by over 150,000 companies across 190 countries. Businesses on the Tradeshift platform include the National Health Service (NHS), French Government, Kuehne+Nagel, MITIE and Vestas.
