SAN ANTONIO -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Vend, a global cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) software provider, announced its integration with Intuit’s QuickBooks Online (QBO) today. With this integration, Vend becomes the first point-of-sale solution to be listed on Intuit’s Apps.com, the next generation app store for small business applications. Launching today at Scaling New Heights in San Antonio, Texas, the Vend integration will help retailers streamline their back-office operations so they can focus on business growth.

Vend First POS Now Featured on Apps.com

Vend is the first and only POS available on Intuit’s Apps.com, providing more than 600,000 QBO users with a trusted POS solution that works seamlessly with QuickBooks Online.

“This is a key integration for Vend and QBO customers,” said Vaughan Rowsell, Founder and CEO of Vend. “We’re thrilled to join the Apps.com marketplace and the greater QuickBooks community where we can empower retailers to leverage cloud technology in order to run their businesses better.”

Intuit’s Apps.com provides small businesses and their accountants with the best tools and add-ons to manage their operations. All applications on Apps.com pass an in-house testing process to ensure the marketplace offers only the highest quality apps that integrate with QBO for a seamless business management experience.

Ronny Tey, Group Marketing Manager for QuickBooks Apps.com said, “Intuit is committed to creating a powerful ecosystem for small business management tools. The addition of Vend to the Apps.com marketplace make it even easier for small businesses seamlessly and directly integrate a powerful POS solution with their QuickBooks Online account.”

Simplified Accounting for SMB Retail

With the integration, retailers can now close their registers to have daily sales and payments data automatically synchronize inside QBO. Accountants can see the data prepared and organized in expected QBO formats, allowing them to efficiently maintain orderly books for the business. The integration also eliminates the need for paid 3rd party software connections. This marks the start of the partnership, with further integration features rolling out over the coming months.

Jo King, a QuickBooks Pro Advisor, commented, “Transactions from Vend appear in QBO just the way you'd expect, with no learning curve on the QBO side. And my clients will love the ease of using Vend. This is what we've been waiting for!”

Availability and Pricing

Available to retailers in the United States, the new integration comes at no additional cost to Vend and QuickBooks users.
