QBO Surpasses 2 Million Global Customer Milestone
I wanted to share this exciting News!
In June 2015, Intuit® celebrated the milestone of serving 1 million small businesses around the world. Today, a little less than two years later, we are thrilled to share that we’ve crossed another significant milestone, doubling that number to more than 2 million global QuickBooks® Online (QBO) customers now powering their prosperity on our platform!
2 Million Strong … and Growing … It’s a milestone that we celebrate with you, our customers and partners, because none of this would be possible without you. Together, we’ve built the largest and fastest growing global small business ecosystem on the planet. We’re driving entrepreneurial success for yourselves, small businesses, self-employed workers and app developers who dare to dream. We’re unlocking the power of millions – 2.2 million in 192 countries to be exact – and giving you access to the world’s largest small business platform and the collective power that comes with it. With each new customer – and 1,500 new small businesses who start using QBO every day – our products get better, smarter and easier to use.
… “Our strategy of a vibrant “One Intuit Ecosystem” is gaining real momentum. More ecosystem connections between customers and products creates greater value for our customers, and sources of competitive advantage for Intuit,” said Brad Smith, Intuit’s chairman and chief executive officer, during a call with investors and media today. “Customer growth continues to accelerate, driven by improvements across our platform serving the self-employed, small businesses and accountants. We continue to drive strong growth in both our core U.S. business and international markets.”
… In a blog post today, Sasan Goodarzi, executive vice president and general manager of Intuit’s Small Business Group, described a new version of “Main Street” that has emerged on global platforms such as Facebook, Amazon and eBay. There is now a global village built on, and connected through, technology rather than brick-and-mortar. Sasan argued that although mega-platforms have made this new global village possible, “The future belongs to those who have always made Main Street prosper – small business owners and entrepreneurs.”
… Prosperity can mean a million things to a million different people. Whether it means buying a house, opening a new store, expanding their product line or sending their kids to college, we’re here to help make it happen. Tell us what prosperity means on social media, using the hashtag #MorePower2You.
