According to PC World (view article), the start of 2014 will bring an exciting new tech improvement for small businesses using QuickBooks. A partnership between Intuit and American Express’s small business sector is developing an app upgrade that brings together American Express and QuickBooks.
The American Express app will soon allow users to take photographs of their receipts with their smart phones, and can tag it into QuickBooks and sync the tag to your American Express statements as well. In QuickBooks, it will tag the receipt “based on what kind of expense it is, the job it will be billed to, and the employee who made the purchase”.
American Express OPEN, the small business sector of AmEx, developed their ReceiptMatch app to help small businesses simplify expense tracking.

This new collaboration with Intuit and QuickBooks simplifies business for anyone using the two, and it’s an exciting new update.
