You need an MBA to use this. I did go to accounting for 3 years and this was over my head at first.

Pros

Links to my account.

Cons

Hard to understand use. Need for multiple other programs to get a small business up and going instead of being expandable.

Advice to Others

Understand the product before you buy.

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.

Quickbooks is a great overall accounting software that will fit the needs of many small businesses.

Pros

There are many standard reports that allow you to understand your business more fully. They are also integrating with other platforms now, which helps for more efficient processes.

Cons

For industry specific reports, there are limitations. I would look into other enterprise solutions, especially for contractors.

Advice to Others

Do you research on the different software available and get first-hand knowledge from actual users of the pros and cons.

I have been using this product since I started in business 12 years ago. I don't use all the aspects of QuickBooks. The invoicing piece is great.

Pros

Immediate reports

Cons

Expensive and having to buy versions frequently because it would not be compatible with my accounts version.

Advice to Others

It's a business must. If you don't use it you could potentially be losing a lot of time and money.

I find it very difficult to get the help I need when I encounter a problem. You do not make your customer support contact information readily available or easy to find. When you click on the question mark, you get answers to other people's questions that are similar to the question you're asking but you can't get your own unique question answered. I eventually located a link that said customer support but it took me directly to the home page of your website, which is offering to sell me things but has no customer service contact information. I called my bank and they gave me a phone # to talk to a support person.
I did get the help I need once I found a number to call. Your support person was professional and solved my problem quickly.

Pros

It's fairly easy to use.

Cons

When a transaction is automatically matched, I haven't found a way to edit it if it's incorrect.

I think that Quickbooks best strength is its reliability. Its performance isn't questioned as it is the standard for book keeping. However, I think that there are some things that are very lacking from its toolkit. The export to excel could be much better than it is and only support very specific formats. It also does not have good support for importing data, requiring the use of a QuickBooks specific file format vs another standard such as an unstructured data format such as XML, or maybe even importing from QuickBooks generated excel sheet with proper formatting. I think for the standard user, these would not be major issues and for the most part, they are avoidable with enough effort put into entering all data into QuickBooks manually and formatting the exported data as necessary. Other than that, I find that their search tool isn't always the best as it fails to find things that fit the search criteria. Even just searching a customer list will sometimes not yield a complete list of customers with a common string. However, as I said at the beginning, it does provide everything needed and overall has great customer support (albeit a little slow sometimes).

Pros

Wide ranging functionality
Hierarchical menu structure
Quick

Cons

Poor import/export customization
Bad searching

The product is easy to use and has a good amount of useful features. Reports are especially helpful for job costing and accounting. The system has fail-safes and double-checks built in to keep you from making mistakes.

Pros

Reports, ease of integration with other software

Cons

Can be difficult to find the right report or function if you don't know where they are.
