QuickBooks for Mac and iOS


 

QuickBooks for Mac is financial accounting solution from Intuit for small businesses and accounting professionals. The solution allows users to create professional invoices, track sales and expenses, and manage accounts payable.

QuickBooks provides Mac-specific features. For example, users can embed a notification bar in Mac's menu bar, add reminders to iCalendar and sync contacts with their Mac OS address books. Users can also share data with Windows-based users.

QuickBooks for Mac's online version can be accessed on from anywhere and any device. The online version provides more features than the desktop version, such as automatic scheduling and invoice sending, advanced security and access for up to five users.

QuickBooks for Mac also offers a mobile app for iOS.

Value for Money

Pros

It actually works on a Mac. However, the Mac version lags behind in features to the windows version and in order to share a file between Windows and Mac takes a lot of work -- creating a back-up file, converting it over, etc.

Cons

Doesn't play well with the Windows version so you can't send a file from one to the other and just have it work without a lengthy conversion process.

Quickbook for Mac different than PC version

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros

Generally easy functionality. While an online version seems great, a desktop version means access everywhere. For someone running a mobile business, it's important to have that real-time information handy.

Cons

Features that are on the PC version and not on the Mac version. For instance, payroll is online for the Mac version and you don't see payroll paychecks as you can on PC. This is a very disappointing fact, since there is really no difference in platform that Intuit can't fix that

I love quickbooks however, Quickbooks for MAC has a LOT to be desired!

Pros

I like the functionality of the Quickbooks product itself just not the MAC version! Quickbooks is a great product and it is easy to use. The report section is easily manipulated for whatever you may need a report on.

Cons

It doesn't work well with MAC and I have been using this product for 3 years now. They don't have an upgrade for this year but they upgraded the PC version. Their reports aren't consistent and what I mean by that is for example: I ran an aging AR summary and it listed invoices that are clearly paid; however, when I ran open invoices it didn't show on that report and that made my AR report over $ off. It often shuts down and kicks itself out for absolutely no reason and I am left to re-open the program several times a day.

I love using QuickBooks. QuickBooks allows us to do our own books instead of paying a bookkeeper or accountant. It is easy and pretty intuitive.

Pros

Intuitive design
Estimates are easy to flip to invoices.

Cons

Product returns could be easier - when products returned to the store and given a direct credit to the bank account, it would be nice to have the option to credit to the bank account instead of having to the credit going to the supplier and then having to receive it and deposit it - very cumbersome.

Advice to Others

Check for answers/solutions on the forums, there is a wealth of information on there.
Enter transactions at least on a monthly basis to avoid the month/quarter end rush.
I like to put my invoices in chronological order before entering to save some time on having to change the date on every transaction.

After using Simply Accounting/Sage 50 for nearly 7 years, I couldn't believe the ease into switching to Quickbooks Pro. It is an extremely user friendly program, and extremely customizable. After using Quickbooks, I don't know how I ever used Simply Accounting, and I would never go back.

Pros

All the tracking features for jobs are the greatest. They all tie into project management and make it extremely easy to see exactly where you're at cost wise per job.

Cons

The way the invoicing from expenses displays on the invoice to the customer is not really designed for how we like to display the info, I wish we could customize this a bit more.

QB is good for a small business, but not for an exponentially growing one that requires more functionality in areas of automation, custom fields and flexibility in reporting using more fields than are available to select to report on. We are actually looking at new software to replace QuickBooks because we have simply outgrown it.

I now know where I stand financially, I can take a look at how much we spend on inventory
each month. It's so much better to have figures that you can trust.

Pros

I find it very easy to navigate through your software, when I got stuck I called customer
service and they were great at helping me or should I say teaching me how to use QuickBooks.

Cons

Don't have any at this time. It would be nice if it were easier to customize reports .
The inventory portion of QuickBooks is a little more complicated than I thought
when I tried to learn more about how to incorporate the inventory in to QuickBooks.

This software allows me to spend less time documenting write-offs and tracking customer payments. Its an affordable tool that is well worth the monthly fee in the time that it saves me.

Pros

I use the self-employment version and really like it. It allows me to track and categorize all my expenses for easy tax reporting. I can also invoice and collect payments from customers and track mileage. The iphone app is very useful.

Cons

The invoicing tool lacks some features, such as detailed line items and adding discounts. It is very basic and should allow more customizations.

The user friendly work space and the availability of customer support are some of the best features with QuickBooks. For someone who knows little to nothing about accounting you can create professional reports using their software.

Pros

I had to learn a much newer version than I was used to in a very short time (new job). I used the "what's new" options and was caught up quickly and without anyone in my office feeling like I was behind. The software is very user friendly and the reports are fantastic. With the contributed reports I can find just about any collaboration of data I need.

Cons

It would be a nice addition, if when looking up a payment - it showed when the check cleared the bank. I have not found a way to do that other than going back to the bank and getting the answer.
