Intuit chief executive Brad Smith announced the company will divest Demandforce, QuickBase, and Quicken. That will see Intuit’s revenue chopped by about $250 million, with earnings per share down by about 10 cents, for the 2016 fiscal year.
We use QuickBooks and also PayCycle. PayCycle was way more awesome and responsive when it was a stand-alone company before Inuit bought it in 2009.
