QuickBooks Premier Industry Specific Versions
At the Intuit Developer Network (IDN) Conference in December 2003, Intuit announced that approximately 1.6 million customers want industry specific solutions. With the expanded industry specific solutions available with the 2004 version of the product, Intuit moved from 30% to 67% industry coverage for its customer base of 89% of the small business accounting software market. The current industry specific products that are available are:
• Accountant Edition
• Contractor Edition
• Healthcare Edition (discontinued)
• Manufacturing & Wholesale Edition
• Non-Profit Edition
• Professional Services Edition
• Retail Edition
With the exception of the Accountant Edition, the main difference between the industry specific editions and the “plain” Premier product is an additional navigator and a few additional reports. With version 2006, this has begun to change. For example, several of the inventory enhancements are only available in some of the industry specific versions.
Note: These same industry specific versions are available for the Enterprise Solutions products as well.
