Intuit Inc. announced that it will increase its commitment to accountants by rolling out a series of new and enhanced programs, including free technical support for QuickBooks ProAdvisors, an accountant-dedicated support team, and free in-person training seminars in 80 cities.

Having spent thousands of hours observing and talking to accountants, the various programs are designed to address accountants' most critical needs.

"We want to send a clear message that no one is more committed than Intuit to understanding the needs of accountants and giving them the resources and support they need to be successful," said Intuit's vice president of accountant programs, Jill Ward, in a statement.

Intuit has doubled its investment to provide free, in-person QuickBooks training on accountant-specific topics in 80 cities nationwide. Accountants will also have access to more than 60 free Web-based QuickBooks training sessions, and accounting associations - at both the state and the chapter level -- will have access to in-person presentations on everything from using QuickBooks to building a practice.

Intuit has also created a specialized support staff dedicated to accountants, and the U.S.-based team includes expert QuickBooks accountants. Support is included with QuickBooks ProAdvisors membership at no additional charge.
