It's a great and easy to use product with lots of good options within the program.

Pros

Easy to learn and use. The layout is also very nice which makes it easier to navigate through.
And the best thing is that they keep on adding and updating with every new release.

Cons

The only con is that the reports part can be a little better.
You, also can't create certain reports that are important sometimes...

Not bad software for Non-Profit

Not a bad software for small to medium size non-profit. Easy to use, Easy to get report and information. But it cannot do a lot of functions like other softwares can.

Pros

Easy to use. Easy to fix entry. Freedom to change descriptions after positing. Drilldown capability from the number on report.

Cons

Cannot post more than one AR or AP in journal entry. Deleting invoice and voiding check on later month has to be done through journal entry. GL detail for specific class has to be fixed in excel to get rid of non applicable data.

Quickbooks is very user friendly, forgiving, and easy to learn. It offers a lot of features if you know how to use them, such as the Fixed Asset component. It makes my depreciation schedule and property tax statements a breeze. You can close periods in QB but they're never really closed and users can make changes to prior periods, which sometimes changes my financial statements when I don't want them to. It's good for non-accountants and great for small businesses. Be prepared to outgrow it someday as the business grows and needs become more sophisticated.

Pros

Easy to use, easy to make corrections. The copy feature saves me a lot of time when making monthly transactions with small changes, so does the Memorized Transactions list for GL.

Cons

I tried to change an address for a vendor who moved and was unable to do it. Yet I can go back 3 years and edit an AP transaction. I should be able to do the first, not the 2nd. I prefer not to be able to change financials so easily.

QuickBooks Premier is Entirely Sufficient and Good Foundation for New/Small Business

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

QuickBooks Premier is a fairly comprehensive program for managing your new or small business. It is very good at accounting and basic information management - estimates, invoices, items, vendors, customers, etc. It lacks some of the more comprehensive features of competitive offerings, or even QuickBooks own Enterprise solution but offers a good foundation for software that can handle most of what you'll need it to do.

Pros

Accounting
Customizable Reports
Layout Design for Quotes, Invoices, Etc.
Contract (Custom) Price Management

Cons

Inventory Management
Some Glitches Here and There

Our department can use up to 5 people for this software

The customer service on the phone takes forever - meaning the wait time is a half hour.
There are times I want to throw the box across the wall.

Recommendations

The reports are great and look great. It's simple to go from Quickbooks Pro.

Not for the long-haul (canadian version)

Likes Best

Ease of use, and very quick to learn. This version allows up to 5 concurrent users.

The audit trail and stock reports are very user friendly with plenty of filters. Expect a very quick turnaround training new staff and getting them up to speed, as the interface and functionality is hard not to grasp.

Since this is the premier version, I was not assigned an account rep. There is also a toll free line overseas for any technical/database bug issues.

I did like the support for merchant services and the support given for if we were to upgrade. The only real (noticeable) difference between this and the enterprise version is slightly less options for role centre "customization" and being capped at 5 concurrent users.

In the Canadian version, plugging in to SQL server is the way to go in order to obtain custom reports.

Likes Least

The role centers "handcuff" users to certain roles. When it comes to the general ledger, the "all-or-nothing" functionality doesn't allow the controller to shut off access to certain parts of the financials. Ideally, the controller should be able to define a role center to allow posting/viewing in certain account groups and not to others.

Inability to approve and subsequently lock down POs and SOs. Once a PO/SO gets issued, a user with basic access can always change unit costs and quantities. This hinders the business' scaleability.

The Canadian version no longer allows the user to compress the data file in previous periods. This may be frustrating for companies who rely on lengthy journal entries, as the database file size will exponentially grow.

If you are a job shop (or project-based company), do not expect much in terms of job-cost reporting. The software is limited to populating a customer field when posting an expense. You will have to manually set up jobs as customers and instruct staff to classify expenses under the proper subgroup.

Recommendations

If trying to decide between Quickbooks Premier and Enterprise, the only thing to consider is the number of concurrent users you will need. If you have a team of 10 using the software but only 5 log in at once, save $$$ and go with premier.
