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.

Pros

Best accounting software for Mac!!! They still haven’t integrated over all the features that are available for Windows, but are slowly working on it. It is great for invoicing and payroll.

Cons

The downside is that it does not have the same features and capabilities as the Windows version. We switched over to the Mac version a couple months ago. It was a little tricky at first to get used to, but now our accounting processes are back to a consistent workflow.

I don't know the ins and outs of Quickbooks but from working on it for a month I got the hang out of it. Very simple easy to understand for anyone. Very clean and easy. I had to enter 6 months of expenses and I was able to get that done in two days because of simple the set up is.

Pros

Was super simple to input all of the monthly expenses, and input the checks because I had to toggle back and forth from the online business bank account to Quickbooks

Cons

It took a while to figure out how to delete an accidentally imputed expense, also being able to tab over to each section of info while typing could be a little bit better.

Overall, a really helpful part of our business's workflow.

Pros

Easy to see what financials are going in and out each month and to categorize them in the way most helpful to you. Reports are easy to run.

Cons

Linked credit cards will sometimes run wild and suddenly spawn charges from years ago that aren't especially helpful to your accounting. Definitely requires some supervision.

I have spent much more time with the online version for one of my companies(I have multiple people needing to see and work on accounting), however, with multiple other internal only accounting businesses, the desktop version works well enough to not pay multiple online subscriptions for each company.

Pros

You can use multiple companies with one license. It is relatively easy to switch from company to company.
It's free to down load transactions from your bank account.
Much cheaper, onetime purchase.

Cons

Downloading transactions from your bank account doesn't match up super accurately, especially if you have a lot of open invoices. It can be a little clunky to get around.
Looking at what transactions have matched to downloaded transactions isn't possible, as far as I can tell.
Reports aren't as easy to use as the online version.

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.

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.

Customer service is unable/unwilling to meet customer needs. I had an issue with my payroll service. I was being double billed at the annual rate and the monthly rate in error. I tried for months to get this corrected and all I got was frustrated.

Recommendations

If you can find another program that meets your needs, choose it. I looked at Sage, Freshbooks, and Zero. At the time, none offered integrated job costing and payroll in Massachusetts, features that we couldn't live without.

Track of invoicing, AR/AP

Pros

Once set up and running, the software is very easy to use in a networked environment. Setting up users is fairly painless and managing inventory, invoicing, and the Oustanding Invoice feature is great. No more having to look at every invoice to see if it's past-due or whether or not it was e-mailed to your client.

Thankfully, not much changes from version to version which is nice, and the backup and migrations usually go off without a hitch.

Cons

Support mainly. QB support is a shot in the dark at best, with half the time them having trouble understanding the problem, or blaming it on a damaged database. Or claim that hosting it on a server is the cause of all issues. (Feels like passing the buck)

For us it easy to use, but for a new comer, it is a daunting experience with a ton of options to enter.

Also for some reason their e-mail option for invoicing only works on 32-bit software. So if you have any 64 bit version, you're out of luck. It's been almost 4 years now, and they still haven't added 64 bit support since Office 2013 was released.

I have been able to manage the bookkeeping for a variety of businesses and organizations using this software and have found it to be easy to use and extremely useful!

Pros

This software makes the automation of bookkeeping for both large and small companies infinitely easier and takes all of the human-error and guess work out of managing your money.

Cons

I had very few negative experiences with this software, but did have to interact with customer service once and did not feel like the rep I spoke to was well-informed. This was an isolated incident in an otherwise positive experience.
