I would like to see and update or a live help chat or option linked to the interface of the system.

Pros

This system has an easy to use interface. Easy to learn, aesthetically pleasing and has a flow chart to help if a user has little familiarity to the system.

Cons

I would have to say that the biggest concern and con I have with QuickBooks would be the support staff and wait time when calling in.

I like the easy of use in terms of the "road maps". This enables a user's to navigate through account steps easily. Especially some one who has never used quick books before.

Pros

I love that all the non-profit reports and functionality are in the same place. I can set up classes to tract different types of donations. Reports are easily customizable.

Cons

It is too easy to change account types. Changing account types messes up reports and puts expenses and balances on the wrong reports.

QB Nonprofit easy to use

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support

Value for Money

User friendly.

Pros

QB Nonprofit desktop is easy to use with its flexibility and options which includes name search for customers and vendors and its versitility in financial statements. The classes allow us to get financial statements by class or department which are also very useful. Along with our main department (church) we also have 2 schools, so the software allows us to get financial statements for just the schools. We also use the budgets and get financial statements that show comparisons to budget projections. Dollar to dollar and percentage comparisons. Budgets are easy to prepare. Numbers that are exactly to same from month to month can just be copied across the entire year and don't have to be entered into each month individually.

Cons

1. Sometimes have to wait a long time (as much as 45 minutes) to get telephone support.
2. No name search for employees.

Overall a great program that allows us the functionality to apply it to our needs as a nonprofit.

Pros

It is universally known and we can easily send info to our accountant come tax time. Has a number of features, like allowing us to download our banking information, to ease input. I don't have an accountant background, but was able to easily navigate around, once I got the hang of it.

Cons

We did not get the online version for added security and for cost. We wish the online version was cheaper. Other than that, no complaints.

I like the organization that the Quickbooks provides and the ease of software. Great for anyone starting a small business. Quickbooks worked great during our company golf event. Was able to charge everyone via an iPad which made things so easy.

Cons

The software needs to be refined a little more. The desktop edition consumes more RAM than it should. A strong PC is definitively needed to run the software effectively and efficiently. Also some of the software features need to be made a little more user-friendly.

QB is very forgiving when you make a mistake.

Pros

I love that QB and Intuit researched out what a non-profit needed (or could use) to better manage relationships with their constituents. They created a lot of reports that i never would have come up with myself, but that we use on a weekly basis.

Cons

Sometimes I get lost when trying to do certain tasks. The names they use are not in my vernacular so I stumble a bit. It also has lost settings before that cause it mess with the way my data is displayed.
