Intuit to Put WebEx on Quicken.com

Intuit Inc. reached an agreement Monday with WebEx to make WebEx Virtual Office readily available on Intuit's Quicken.com.

With this move small businesses may use Quicken.com to hold conferences with their customers, vendors and staff. Clients can view documents, browse, watch presentations, review drawings and run software programs with integrated teleconferencing and video.

Intuit Inc. (INTU) said the goal of the deal is to help clients save time and money through the elimination of commuting time and reducing travel expenses.

"We are working to provide Quicken.com's small business users with more tools, services and content to help them run their businesses more effectively," said Victor Esclamado, director of the small business channel on Quicken.com. "We believe that the ability to conduct interactive Web-based meetings will help small business people make the most of their most precious resources -- time and money."

In the new deal, users of Quicken.com can list their offices in one of several categories including business, financial, insurance and consulting.
