BigTime, one of the nation’s leading business software providers, grasps the reins of Intuit Practice Management for Lacerte tax users
CHICAGO, June 10, 2014 — BigTime announced, today, they are launching a brand new integration that targets Lacerte®, the most popular tax-prep system in the US. Starting this summer, Intuit will offer existing Practice Management customers an automatic upgrade to BigTime’s IQ product.
“We’ve been Intuit’s partner behind the scenes for years on Intuit Practice Management,” said CEO Brian Saunders. “Now we’re excited about finally getting a chance to own the complete product roadmap.”
BigTime is a Gold Certified Developer with Intuit, and the company’s product has been embedded in Intuit’s practice management suite since 2011. Now, for the first time, BigTime is launching its own integrated Lacerte® product and taking on existing customers in the process.
BigTime IQ is exceptionally robust, providing in-depth tools for CPAs, as well as other professional services verticals. It’s also available in formats to fit specific business needs, from small practices to nationwide footprints. Combining simple, intuitive navigation with powerful features, BigTime IQ delivers time tracking, billing and online practice management solutions.
“We think accountants need more than basic practice management. They need mobile. They need dashboards and high-quality, robust reporting. They need real-time, two-way links to Lacerte. Some of them don’t want to be locked into only using products that are Intuit-blue. By coming out from behind the Intuit curtain, we can get customers those types of tools quickly. That’s what excites us most about this new offering,” added Saunders.
BigTime’s clients share Saunders’ enthusiasm for the new direction. “It’s fast. It’s powerful. And, it’s plugged into Lacerte. What’s not to love?” says Brian Gilmartin, Director of True Partners Consulting.
BigTime IQ is more than just the next generation IPM product. The software is the backbone users have come to rely on, now enhanced with additional capabilities, tools and features previously unavailable.
