At Intuit®, we’re not only focused on providing the best experience and tools that enable developers to create innovative applications for accountants, mid-market and small business customers; we’re also committed to finding new ways to help app developers grow their business.
Today, we are proud to announce the developer growth pilot program designed to help app developers succeed with 4.5 million small businesses around the world that run on the QuickBooks® platform. Our objectives include helping developers maximize their marketing impact, connect with more customers, and increase their app revenue.
The pilot program is a nine-month initiative in which each participating developer in our cohort will work with the Intuit Developers & Partners group to identify and test growth opportunities. The cohort will also have access to an exclusive network of accountants, UX experts, solution architects, and go-to-market managers, as well as the opportunity to closely engage with our QuickBooks and developer communities.
Meet our cohort:

Helm: Cash flow issues are the single biggest problem small businesses have. Helm was created to solve them. From Helm: “Our platform automates the work of small business back offices. Our app is beautiful, interactive and “smart” (and getting smarter by the day), making it intuitive and easy to understand. Our bots make accounts payable, accounts receivable, and short-term financing simple for our users, eliminating mundane work and helping them save hard-earned time.”
Asset Accountant: AssetAccountant is a best-of-breed fixed asset depreciation and lease accounting engine. Its deep integration with QuickBooks Online automates the generation of new assets, runs depreciation and lease calculations for accounts and tax, and posts detailed journals straight to the QuickBooks Online general ledger.
