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.

Pros

The program is clearly organized and very intuitive for a rooky user. I began with very little knowledge of accounting.

Too frequent changes that sometimes seem to be just change for irs own sake. It can be frustrating to learn one way to make an entry and then find it has changed.

Extremely valuable time savings, with regard to tracking income and expenses, reconciliation of monthly bank statements is super fast and easy. My accountant loves it because everything she needs is readily available. I can't imagine using anything else. I have used Quicken and QuickBooks for a long time, and appreciate the software upgrades, and product support.

Pros

The ease of use, is great, tracking cash flow, and the ability to customize reports. Also, the software remembers everything, so it makes data entry fast and easy.

Cons

sometimes the printing function does not execute properly and the output is not easy to read, or it does not fit on the page.

I'm not proper train accounting software user, Without this software I can not generated the final accounts statement. This software help me save a lot of time. I tried other software but really can not figure out how to use as easy as quick book online.

Pros

So far I'm happy for the software and already use it for more than 3 years. Can access anyway on the world as long as you have internet access. Every amount you see on the screen can click and find where it came from. This is very usefully for when you are scratching you head and want to edit the wrong amount.
Every year, I just need to do my home work and print out the P/L and balance sheet and submit to my accountant. If my accountant want extra information, I just need to click on report and search it.

Cons

If really want to give comment is possible add in the local tax rate and amount. For those do not have internet access or the speed is slow maybe is hard for them to access.

Pros

Quickbooks (desktop) has done everything I need accounting wise for the last 10-15 years. It works well for tracking different costs and accounts, and also for tax reporting.

Cons

The backup file size after 10 years in business is quite large and takes several minutes to backup. The software has occasional glitches, but is usually corrected fairly quickly. I've opted to only upgrade every two to three years because the older versions in my experience stay pretty stable after they are no longer "working out the bugs".
