Here’s a scenario for business owners to consider: you’re talking to a potential client and make a sale, but unfortunately you aren’t in the office to record it in your Quickbooks account. I think most business owners have found themselves in this situation at some point or another. And while you can always wait until you get back to the office, there’s a chance you could forget to record the transaction in Quickbooks. Thankfully, Quickbooks offers a quick and easy solution to this problem with their versatile yet easy-to-use smartphone applications.
