What does this mean for customers of Quickbase??

Financial software company Intuit dropped a bomb while reporting its latest quarterly numbers Thursday: It will be selling off Quicken, its original accounting product, along with QuickBase and Demandforce.

The divestment will help Intuit “focus on and invest in businesses that strengthen the ecosystem and align with two strategic goals: to be the operating system behind small business success, and to do the nations’ taxes in the U.S. and Canada,” the company said in a statement.

Hi B -

Our GM, Allison Mnookin, shared her thoughts on our blog about this very question. The quick answer is that business is as usual and we're very excited about the opportunity. Please check our her video on the blog, since she does a much better job than I can do in written form.

OK Allison! Nicely done ... put my concerns at ease. This morning I started researching other alternatives to QB. I opted not to go down this road. Instead we share in the optimism you have for QB and soldier forward. I think we all look forward to the day when QB becomes even more robust after the sale.
