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.

So many great tools that can be used. I really love the reports Premier gives. Can easily be customized.

Pros

Easy to use, easy to navigate. Great reporting tools. LOVE THE JOB COSTING for Contractors. Great "at a glance" feature.

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.

Pros

Very easy and straight forward to use. Can manage any size business with ease. Great flow of information within the system.

Cons

Although I like the help button, with a direct download was not given a manual so it was a matter of using the new version and trying to figure out the new changes and quirks. Updated from 2011 version. Customer service wait time is still a bit long.

Inadequate accounting package for medium sized (10 - 25 employees) business.

Functionality

Value for Money

Pros

Beyond the basics of what any accounting software does, not much. I can issue po's, pay invoices, reconcile our bank and credit accounts and calculate payroll. Oh, and run a T/B, B/S and P&L.

Cons

Add on modules vs. a full integration of the accounting systems that businesses use causes excess time for custom modifications and numerous adjusting entries and support is virtually non-existent. I spend an average of 30 minutes on hold each time I call and the tech always asks to screen share. What I know from watching the tech hunt and peck through menus is that they do not understand the software either! Upgrades cause some functionalities to not work -- requiring more time with (less than well-trained) te3ch support.

Pros

A common software pakage used by most of the 40+ business owners I work with. Quickbooks Premier is straight forward to use and inexpensive to own. Well suited to my needs. It also integrates well with my CPA so they can prepare regulatory and tax forms, etc...

Cons

Should consider YouTube Channel with basic training modules. Not too difficult to learn on your own, but could come in handy for certain types of transactions.

Generally happy

Pros

Has lots of additional features within the payroll section, like using weekly timesheets to enter payroll hours, that if used properly can help streamline invoices and ensure accuracy with billable hours. There's lots of other apps that are compatible and sync up with Quickbooks too. Love being able to add Classes to separate out the divisions in our company.

Cons

Unfortunately some records don't allow or don't carry over the class function. For example, a classified invoice gets paid but the payment doesn't get classified, so when you try pulling balance sheets by class the A/R only has the invoices and not payments, giving a super off number and in a big company you're not about to calculate that manually.
Can also be touchy when looking at old payroll records so you need to be trained on what not to do or what to watch for.

QuickBooks premier is a great system to have. Whether you're doing simple accounts and cash flow or you're just wanting to keep all your accounts in one place and organized. I would recommend the QuickBooks suite.

Pros

I am really enjoy using QuickBooks Premier it's an easy-to-use system and keeps my accounts in one place. Our CPA has everything they need for the end of the year and it's a great time saver.

Cons

The biggest con about QuickBooks Premier is the updating every year and having to buy new software unless you use the cloud-based system. For this reason we have moved over to cloud-based system that QuickBooks offers since thE price point is easier to swallow.

I really enjoy QuickBooks Premier! I've been a QuickBooks user for over a decade now, but Premier is needed upgrade. It has expanded functionality and allows me to take a deeper dive into my finances.

Pros

Excellent customization! There's a lot of information you can input into Premier which allows for better understanding and tracking of your finances. It also helps generate more specific and relevant reports. Learning the base functions is easy and intuitive.

Cons

Learning some of the more advanced functions, some of which you need in order to truly maximize this product, will take longer to learn and require some deeper training sessions.

Love to use the pay invoice but the % too expensive compared to other credit card processing companies. Be competitive.
Why can't you make online platform for quickbook premiere version. Small business people needs to travel a lot doing multitasking. Online platform would be a great solution.

Pros

Affordable and easy of use. Well understanding of the business format. It is made to grow as the business grows

Cons

numbers don't match time to time. it requires customer service but need to pay for software issues. Not good.

Value for Money

Pros

QuickBooks is very user friendly and almost anyone can learn to use this software for their business. It exports reports to Excel easily, which is one feature I love for month end financial reporting. It is easy to pull reports for anything by customizing canned reports.

Cons

While QuickBooks is very user friendly, sometimes that is a bad thing. An accountant must do the input or review the input. Many times people who are not familiar with accounting make errors, because you really can change anything (unless you set up security properly, which is hard in a small office environment).

QuickBooks has a "double edge sward" in that it is easy to manipulate. If you know accounting, it is a good thing. If you do not know accounting, is is a bad thing.

Pros

The different modules are designed so that tricks in one module work in other modules. Reports are easily manipulated to produce the information I need. I can easily adapt chart of accounts to fit the needs of my client. I love the accountant transfer system. I can work on client's books from my office. They release updates often and are always improving the software.

Cons

My clients can make changes to accounts and reports that messes up the financial statements. QuickBooks allows changes too easily for people who do not have an accounting background. QuickBooks does not produce an Income Statement, I have to adapt a Profit and Loss statement if I want that report. The financial are not formatted so that they look nice.
