Intuit QuickBooks and OnPoint Accounting Group have agreed a new strategic partnership which will “focus on enhancing both firms’ product offering and vision to support start-ups, freelancers and small businesses”.
The firms said they will aim to support firms on their journey with greater financial insights and understanding to help them succeed.
OnPoint Accounting Group said the combination of resources and software will “eliminate complex financial and administrative processes” and allow start-ups to focus on making “important and informed” business decisions, while “enhancing their growth and prosperity” – all through greater insights and understanding of their businesses’ financial position.
OnPoint added it will support its various practises in Scotland and across the UK. It will also enhance its offer of “around-the-clock support” to alleviate client concerns around daily business finances, payments and advice through a technology-driven financial solution that enables small businesses to thrive.
QuickBooks will focus its efforts on providing the technology and tools to support OnPoint and its clients.
Nick Williams, director of Sales at Intuit QuickBooks UK, said: “We welcome this new collaboration with OnPoint Accounting Group and are delighted to announce this agreement which follows a number of strategic announcements that we have made this year.
“Investing in the future and growth of small businesses is at the heart of our business, and we are delighted to partner with OnPoint who share our ethos on making a difference.”
He added: “We believe in today’s climate there has never been a more important time for increased collaboration with organisations that are supporting start-ups. We are delighted to be able to offer the right tools to our clients to give them the insights to take on every day with total confidence, the foresight to stay one step ahead and the power to be more successful.”
Johann Goree, MD at OnPoint Accounting Group, said: “Helping small businesses to thrive is at the core of what our practises do, both individually and as a group. Being a QuickBooks Strategic Partner will enable us to further facilitate the growth and success of our clients and practises. One of our main areas of focus over the last 18 months has been supporting small businesses and the next generation of start-ups, not just to survive but to thrive throughout this pandemic.
“We’ve done everything possible in our work to reflect the ethos of our company by offering support, guidance and advice wherever possible – often free of charge – to a plethora of small businesses, helping steer them through a difficult time.”
