Pros

This product does exactly what it says it does, and thats to make accounting easier and more engadging. All apsects of accounting including accounts payable and recievable, to bank reconciliation can be done here.

Cons

This product may be difficult to use initially, mainly because the program is so massive and precise. There are however classes at colleges as well as books that can bring you up to speed with the capabilities of this software.

Same as QB Desktop but top-line version

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Value for Money

The premier versions are basically the SAME as the basic versions but adds industry specific features.
The Accountant's version is the best, though priciest, version.

Pros

Same functionality/features as QB Desktop but adds some specific industry features.
The best version is the Accountant's version which has many of the industry features (switch to different industries formats).

Cons

Same as the QB desktop version previously previewed.
Intuit is making the software obsolete ~3 years as it's dropping support and updates.
The price is MORE expensive than the basis versions.
People STILL NEED to learn how to use QB Desktop regardless of the version to avoid many issues caused by the Users themselves.
AVOID the payroll subscription and hire an external payroll company esp. if there's lots of benefits involved!
Can NOT read QB files from the previous version and MUST upgrade them to the current version so be Careful If the client WANTS the accountant's copy back!

All in all definitely great software for small and medium size companies.

Pros

This was definitely great software years ago when our company was growing. Quickbooks was always the go to software for keeping all of our AP and AR in order.

Cons

Not the best software for larger companies. Once we reached a certain sales level we had to go to a server based software that could handle larger companies.

Pros

Offers all of the basic accounting practices that are needed for a business, you can track your expenses, bills that you have paid, inventory, cash flow and even banking transactions and that is just a taste of what they can do.

Cons

Having the ability of login into a program like this when you are out of the office is greatly beneficial so having something to access on a mobile device would also be good for future use.

Pros

You can do dispatching, payroll, invoicing all with one synced process. The simplicity of categorizing for tax season is key as well.

Cons

The price is a bit extravagant and may be hard for smaller companies to commit to. We debated quite a bit over the price point.

The software works okay, but I feel it is lacking in many respects. And the bugs and data errors are extremely frustrating.

Pros

Allows you to categorize sales and expenses by class.
Can export data for manipulation and reporting in Excel.
Does direct deposit payroll.

Cons

Bug: doesn't let user select "check" as payment type.
Not very intuitive for a lot of it. For example, if you issue a credit to a customer, you can't apply it to any of their invoices unless the credit is issued through the same receivable account. It should at least recognize that there is a credit available for that customer.
Lacking in reports. We use it for a non-profit and have the non-profit version - but there is no report, out of the box, that allows you to quickly see what is available to spend for each project (identified as a class). You can start with the balance sheet, but have to calculate what's available. And donor contribution reports are also not readily available in a format ready to send, or export.
Frequently has data issues and needs to rebuild the data files.

I love this product for all it allows a company to do.

Pros

Quickbooks can handle the accounting for any size company. It is easy to make an accountant's copy to send over for the CPA for year end activities.

Cons

Some of the functions are not set up where you would expect them to be so you have to hunt for them the first time you use them.

Pros

functionality and interface has been quite easy, basic understanding of business will get you thru the whole process. Basic and intermediate reports are already included for you to evaluate your biz

Cons

Since its a off the shelf software, it tends to be rigid on the customization. which doesnt mean that you need to customize all of your reports.

It's an excellent product that works as a stand-alone construction management software package, but it will integrate with other software tools in the industry.

Pros

It's easy to learn and use. It tracks job costs very well. It allows for you to create estimates for each job and gives you excellent comparison reports.

Cons

It has an automatic cloud backup feature, but it works very poorly and is not reliable. You need to make local backups as well.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Value for Money

It's a very easy to use software. You can easily customize reports, comment on reports, export reports in Excel format, customize all types of needs. It integrates with Outlook easily. I would highly recommend this software if you are an accountant or bookkeeper or in need of a specialized set up of a type of business. If you don't need these items, I would then go to Quickbooks Pro which will do everything you need and cost 1/3 of the money yearly for renewals.

Pros

Overall the product has more reports than Quickbooks Pro, but otherwise they are very similar. It allows for more specialized types of companies to set up such as Contractor version, Property Management version etc... If you set up as an accountant or bookkeeper with Intuit, they will refer business to you.

Cons

It's about 3 times the price of Quickbooks Pro costing per year to renew. There aren't really any downsides to the product otherwise.

Pros

Very easy to use. The functionality is existent and reminds me why so many users are still on Quickbooks. You don't need that much accounting knowledge to work with double entry systems. It's a desktop software and not SaaS, so we can access it even when the internet is down.

Cons

Multicurrency support is still lacking. Can't do payroll when your main currency is not the currency your payroll is in...

Better setup support needed!!

Pros

I am thrilled to have software tailored specific to NPO”s. My options are geared more specific to NPO accounts.

Cons

Ease of setup is very poor. As imagined, there is no instruction for setup so I obtained a manual. It indicates there’s to be a q & a after entering company name and info, but that was not my experience.

I recommend the use of this software for small size companies

Pros

QuickBooks is one of the easy software the online market can offer for accounting. The integral way to upload inventories and data. Creation of massive customers and an ultra easy way to created sales orders give this software a plus. You also con control purchase orders with just two clicks and have the very useful resource of ample reports for every almost data you can have inside the system.

Cons

The customer support is not good enough. Quality and quantity of this tool is poor. Sometimes is better to figure it out by yourself when you have troubles about the system than ask them.

Cons

Only available on-site. Not cloud based. There aren't a lot of cons to this product really. It is a desktop version and you will have to purchases licenses.

Overall very happy with both products!

Pros

QuickBooks is fairly easy to use and customizeable. A bit of a learning curve on the front end but once you get going it's fairly simple. You enter the information and Quickbooks does all the "dirty work" in the background. With the addition of TSheets it has made time tracking SUPER easy. TSheets Customer Service (this means yout DM1) is REALLY GREAT and rounds out the product nicely. Both are comprehensive enough to get all the time tracking, accounting and financial reporting you need.

Cons

A bit of a learning curve on the front end and they could use a few more comprehensive, professionally produced training videos.

Overall great software that helps my company run smoothly.

Pros

Before using quickbooks I had been using a software that cost a month. It was impossible to use and took forever. The interface was confusing and inefficient. I have been using quick books for a decade and my favorite thing about it other than the affordable price is the almost intuitive user interface. It's home page is a beautifully designed mind map of applications. And each feature is easy to use.

Cons

Payroll is not included but can be added on for a monthly fee which is fine. I just wish the payroll would come with more features.
