Intuit finally equipped its software with 256-bit encrypted security features to ensure the highest level of data security. It means that your data is protected even if unauthorized individuals intercept it. It is the most secure encryption technique where the data encrypted has a 256-bit key and would require a hacker to try 2256 key combinations to decrypt the data, which is next to impossible.
Customer Prepayments (Enterprise Only)
The best update that comes with the new version is Customer Prepayments. Users can keep track of customer prepayments and deposits on sales orders and automatically apply them to invoices when the orders are filled. It builds customer trust and lets you record prepayments as current liabilities instead of accounts receivable.

The new addition will help in streamlining the inventory management process and will eventually improve overall productivity. Users can also track inventory of products made in the same batch with the “Inventory Stock Status by Lot Numbers” report.
