Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) today opened the voting polls to complete the final phase of its Global Firm of the Future contest. In this final stage, the public votes for the firm they wish to see crowned the 2017 Global Firm of the Future Grand Prize Winner. Starting today and ending October 29, 2017, Intuit invites the public to visit the Firm of the Future contest page and vote for one of the top four Global Firm of the Future Finalists: AIS Solutions, AllThatCounts, Business Cents, and Business Works UK Ltd.

AIS Solutions, AllThatCounts, Business Cents and Business Works UK Ltd represent the best firms from Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States that embody the spirit of being a Firm of the Future.

"These four firms represent the best of the best," said Rich Preece, global leader of Intuit's Accountant Segment. "They use online technologies, like QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Online Accountant and apps to not only manage their firm but to excel at meeting clients' needs. They also use innovative processes and take advantage of powerful social media platforms to grow their brand globally and reach prospects. I can't wait to unveil the winner on stage at QuickBooks Connect in November."

Before voting, the public can view a video of each firm that highlights how it embraces the attributes of being a Firm of the Future. The videos are available in an online gallery, where votes can also be cast.
