Mountain View, Calif. -- Accounting software vendor Intuit Inc. has launched a new QuickBooks Cloud ProAdvisor Program.

The program is designed for accountants who have or are looking to develop a cloud-focused practice, stated product manager Jyothi Trishuleshwar. "It's good for anyone who wants to grow a cloud practice online," he explained. "The regular ProAdvisor program is for those who want to do everything - desktop only, or desktop and cloud -- but the cloud program is for those who just want cloud customers."
