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.

QuickBooks for Small Business

Ease-of-use

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).

Good robust entry level product

Pros

This product is very forgiving in that you can go back and make changes or fix entry errors very easily.

Cons

I wish the updates were annual only. I don't use the software day to day, but am the one who does the updates and would prefer only one time a year to think about it.

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.

The Help Feature that is within QB is great! If ever in doubt of how to do something, if the Help Feature doesn't have a direct answer, it searches previous replies by other users to come up with a solution. Very handy.

Pros

Easy to search for existing documents, and keep all information tied to customers and vendors within their profiles.

Cons

Customers and vendors lists can become a disaster. Many times they are not entered the exact same way. If you have a large number of customers and vendors, it is difficult to remember that a profile might have been created already. QuickBooks ends up having multiple profiles separate from one another for the same company. It can be cleaned up, but is very time consuming. My customer and vendor profiles remain a mess, as I DO NOT have the time to fix!

I have used both the online version and premier and was completely satisfied with my decision to switch to the premier software.

Pros

The premier version allows you to do so much, from detailed check reports showing all paid invoices to keeping track of receivables and payables. For how in depth the program is I was surprised at how simple it is to learn the ins and outs.

Cons

Overall the product is great, and my only true complaint was the wait times to get a hold of customer service representatives.

Quickbooks (QB) Premier is the top line version of QB and has many industries that it customized for.
Sometimes you can buy one then select your industry in which you'll be lock in or buy the specific one for your industry.
It's also the most expensive version of QB.
The accountant edition is the Top line version and has access to all industries but it doesn't necessarily work that well when switching between industries.
People using the 'cash basis' will find QB easy to use. Once you use the 'accrual' method along with invoicing, things get messy VERY EASILY!
PEOPLE MUST LEARN HOW TO USE QB PROPERLY BUT DO NOT!! THE FAULT OF A MESSY QB FILE IS THE OWNER(S), NOT THE BOOKKEEPER/ACCOUNTANT! PAY SOMEONE TO FIX YOUR QB FILE IF POSSIBLE!
Payroll module is available at an cost but it's NOT very good. Outsource to an external payroll company for payroll instead!
When people say that they only use QB to track their expenses/income like a check book but DO NOT use it for anything else, then there's TROUBLE!

Pros

Relatively simple to use, though users MUST LEARN how to use QB PROPERLY!!
Ready made Generic reports

Cons

EXPENSIVE!
Garbage in, garbage out! Don't blame software when MAJORITY of mistakes are done by Users NOT KNOWING WHAT THEY WERE DOING!!
MUST learn to use the software properly!
Software support/life has been reduced to ~3 yr cycle.
Online bank feeds don't work 100% so must pay attention to what is (not) imported from online banking account!
Many features are BURIED within menus and submenus!!
Client files are ONLY compatible with the previous yr's version instead of ALL Years versions (i.e. 2017 file may be opened in 2016 but not any older year versions) like it used to be YEARS ago!
Compacting files do NOT work well as it screws up the beginning balance after it compacted and many client accounts are messed up as well. Need this feature to remove MANY Years worth of OLD financial data!
Payroll module is available at an additional cost with an ANNUAL fee!

I am not very good with computers but Quick books makes it very easy to follow. Run reports, make adjustments, e-mail invoices.
It is a great system

Pros

very easy system to follow. Balancing the check book is top notch. Making any kind of change ore correction is very easily done.

Cons

This accounting Premier has a great price. But when combined with Point of Sale, the price is a bit much and that is just (1) user.
I think if you buy one you should be able to get additional ones at a good discounted price like at least half the price.

Overall, I am very happy with quick-books. I miss the simplicity of WAVE sometimes, but love how quick books manages my inventory, ordering needs, purchase orders, sales receipts, email, logo's, etc. I would probably have benefited from a class first. Having started using it, I would never go backwards again and give it up. It is part of the company now. One of us!

Pros

Pretty much everything needed to run a business is in quick books. Love how everything is mapped out on the home page. Was trying to run small business with "WAVE" and Excel. We were doing it but it was hard to keep track of everything. Love having a program that manages everything you could possibly need all in one place. Lots of help available on line (great), if you know what the problem is and where to look for the answer.

Cons

When a mistake is made, trying to find the mistake and fix it can be quite difficult. My Mistake: Figuring out what has to be voided or deleted before I can void or delete something else. Figuring out what the mistake was, knowing where to look for it ( I have entered a couple of entries twice. One as an invoice that was paid, and one as a sales receipt. When I was doing a search for the sale, because they were entered differently ...when I did a search for the sale amount both transactions wouldn't show at the same time. They only looked for INVOICE, or BILL etc- It wouldn't search for amount in two different ways of billing. Both of them had been deposited before I realized I was wrong. Boy did I spend a lot of time 1st figuring out what had happened , then 2nd figuring out how to fix it so everything reconciled. There is a lot of "help" available on line, so long as you know what you are looking for. Would be great if there was free learning available on line in video form to watch while you do.

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...

I love how many other products/programs are integrable with Quickbooks!

Pros

It is what we need, how we need it. Tracking employee time, sending estimates and invoices, keeping track of expenses, etc.

Cons

I am not crazy about the loading time. It takes forever to start up and another eternity to open and load the company file. I also have the issue of constantly crashing. I could be in the middle of building an extensively detailed estimate or invoice and when I click Save I get an error message that QB must close and all my work is lost. It has happened multiple times.

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 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.

Contract (Custom) Price Management
