Intuit Adds Doc Scanning, Other Features To Quicken 2007
A redesigned home page for the program provides more information than earlier editions, Intuit says, while an improved setup process automatically identifies and creates multiple savings, checking, and credit card accounts.
Intuit on Tuesday launched the 2007 edition of its flagship Quicken personal finance package, pitching it as a virtual file cabinet that can help at tax time.
A redesigned home page for the program provides more information than earlier editions, Intuit said, while an improved setup process automatically identifies and creates multiple accounts -- savings, checking, and credit card -- when the user enters her bank's information.
Also new to the 2007 Windows version is the ability to scan paper documents -- bills, statements, canceled checks -- and attach the results to Quicken transactions.
"We visited people in their homes and watched them proudly declare that they were reducing clutter by signing up for electronic statements," said John Flora, the Quicken software product manager, in a statement. "Then we saw them print those statements and file them manually because they have no place else to store them.
"The ability to easily download or scan important financial documents and create a permanent digital archive inside Quicken makes perfect sense to people and will certainly help them locate these documents at tax time or years later if audited."
Quicken 2007 connects to more than 4,500 financial institutions, Intuit claimed, and 99 percent of those can send customer data to Quicken with a single click.
Quicken 2007, which comes in four editions for Windows and one for the Mac, sells at prices ranging from $29.95 to $89.95. A $20 mail-rebate is available to retail buyers of Windows' Deluxe ($59.95), Premier ($79.95), and Home & Business ($89.95) editions through November 23; downloads currently are priced $10 under retail.
The software can be downloaded immediately from the Intuit Web site, and will reach retail by Aug. 9.
