Tax Day 2023 is nearly a year away, but Verizon wants fleet-based businesses to have ample time to prepare.
To that end, the telecom company announced in a Tuesday (April 19) press release a new collaboration between Verizon Connect — the company’s fleet management unit — and tax software provider Intuit QuickBooks.
Through a new integration of the two programs, Verizon Connect customers will get added help preparing for next April. Verizon Connect said in the release the new invoicing and accounting feature is designed to help field service organizations, which is “any customer managing the installation, maintenance or repair of hardware or equipment installed ‘in the field.’”
The integration — an update to the Verizon Connect scheduling service Reveal Field — is available now in the U.S. to Verizon Connect customers with a QuickBooks Online subscription. A global rollout of the integration is forthcoming.
“This new integration provides Reveal Field customers with a seamless, simplified invoicing experience that helps them focus on what’s important, instead of juggling multiple software platforms,” said Verizon Connect Director of Product Management Erin Cave in the release. “Customers can now manage customer invoices without having to enter them twice, saving a lot of time and reducing the likelihood of errors.”
With the integration, users can begin an invoice in Reveal Field and sync their job and contact data to complete the invoice in QuickBooks Online, according to the release. If an existing contact is discovered in QuickBooks, the invoice will be created under that contact’s name. If no contact is there, Reveal Field will begin a new one and add it to QuickBooks.
Earlier this year, Intuit QuickBooks debuted two products designed to give small businesses and their employees quicker access to their money.
