Intuit Tech Support: Say Good Bye To Your Intuit Stumbling Blocks

Millions of users reap benefits from “Intuit”, the accountancy, and tax preparation software Development Company, by subscribing to its brands like TurboTax, Quicken, Payroll, and QuickBooks. Intuit’s journey began with just a simple narrative of transforming paper-pencil type book-keeping and synchronizing it with the information technology. The 20th century paced ahead with the dawn of Information technology and it impacted the world of accountancy and commerce on fairly a good note. The rise of Internet unlocked many doors for new business ventures and made them to even run swiftly. In addition, identification and password type security measures helped limiting access to confidential information in financial transactions. Last, the advent of computers, printers, scanners and faxes could be factored in to be called the sole major reason for the evolution of Intuit and its competing industries.

Any software development company or electronic products company for that matter relies heavily on its after sales service for its marketing, reputation and market reach out. This after sales service is delivered through “technical support”. Wikipedia defines it as a service which attempts to help the user solve specific problems with a product rather than providing training, customization, or other support services. And the individuals who are responsible for executing them are called Technical Support Executives. Intuit with a long list of product line up has provided its existing and potential customers worldwide with a host of technical support services. To abate confusion and improve quality assistance, it has well crafted its technical support package separately for its brands namely, TurboTax, Quicken, Payroll, and QuickBooks.

Intuit has rolled out its Phone support for all its brands though the users have found the Quicken and Payroll phone support the most helpful. For Quicken, the users can call at 888-311-7276. While for its payroll support, the users can make use of the number 866-223-5562. But on- call support is available only during weekdays between 6am-6pm (PST).

The online communities and forums have been very successful and in fact, have become the norm of the day. For every topic on this planet, you have an online community with millions of people sharing their ideas and thoughts on it. To replicate this idea, Intuit also introduced its online communities for each of its product. With users and experts registered all at one place, it’s just a matter of texting your query and a comprehensive solution is right on your screen. Though sometimes being patient is the key as for any query you can expect a thousand responses with not a single satiating your thirst.

“Expert one-on-one support” is also one of the supports that Intuit users can avail benefits from. You will receive a personalized tech support experience with experts responding to your queries one on one. Make sure you are a registered user on that particular product’s website. The TurboTax and QuickBooks websites feature this support. Also for QuickBooks users, intuit has added a support by which they can find/locate an expert or accountant in their premises.

For its new customers, Intuit Payroll and QuickBooks are engaging their users on Customer centers and Small Business center respectively. Users can also receive basic tutoring on the functionality of these softwares. Take some time off and learn the tools and get this support service to your advantage.

Blame human nature that one can’t be satisfied with those freely available services. With internet flooded with several independent technical support companies, choosing the one with an authentic signature and quality support can be harrowing. That said, few are definitely are renowned and genuine. They offer flexible premium schemes tailoring to users’ need. Some of their featured schemes include resolving multiple queries per call and an annual subscription to free services. But a word of caution to all such users: Don’t blindly subscribe to their services and evaluate their authentication before contacting them.

Crowd Sourcing Via Personal Tech Sensors for Potentially Harmful Substances

It seems that crowd sourcing is all the rage, and that makes sense because when you break very large and challenging problems into micro components, you get a little bit of work out of a whole bunch of people. But what if we got a whole bunch of work out of a whole bunch of personal tech smart phones?

Do you remember the SETI project where they allowed each individual on their giant network to donate their excess computer usage to help the processing of information? This distributive computing strategy allowed all of the participants to work as one giant supercomputer processing data. If you aren’t familiar with the “SETI@Home Project” then you can look it up on the Internet.

Now then, what if we used a version of distributive computing, and crowd sourcing to provide a layer of protection against terror attacks on the United States of America – let me explain my plan, as I have in previous articles for the last 10 years, because I think this technology has now come to fruition, and we can make this happen. But first let me give you some background.

There was an interesting article recently on Homeland Security News titled; “Researcher develops highly sensitive, nanomaterial gas detector,” published on March 12, 2012. It turns out a post graduate student at Rensselaer is using a graphene material sensor device to sense minute traces of hazardous gases. It might also be used to detect bomb materials for security. The article stated;

“He has created a device that is durable, inexpensive, and highly sensitive, and has created a range of new gas detectors for bomb squads, law enforcement officials, the military, and industry.”

Okay so, what would I do with something like this? Well, I am glad you asked, because as I said above such a technology could save our nation from a terrible terrorist attack; we should put one of these little sensor devices embedded in every single smart phone. When it detects something, it would turn on the camera, and send a call out to the Department of Homeland Security Fusion Center alerting them of the GPS position, and the type of substance which was discovered.

They could then decide what the threat level was, and if it was something that needed to be taken care of right away. If it was just someone who was perhaps loading their own bullets at home, someone with a gun permit, it would be no big deal and skipped over, but if it looked like someone was putting together a bomb, or was at an airport, government building, or in a very populated place, then they could do something about it.

This means they can catch the terrorists while they were doing their bomb making, or while they were preparing to do a terrorist act. The uses in the battle space goes without comment, obviously it makes sense for that. For instance small lightweight UAVs, model aircraft size flying above the roadways in front of convoys, military personnel, or dignitaries. We need this technology, and we should use it to our advantage. And, perhaps we can do it in such a way where it doesn’t disturb any innocent person’s privacy. Please consider all this and think on it.
