Retail, professional services, non-manufacturing, or non-inventory-based clients are a great fit.
Steven Brewer | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

QBO Advanced is well suited to almost any mid-sized organization, probably up until the enterprise level where a more customizable solution might be appropriate. At a 1 mil budget, my organization is just scratching the surface of the features. Inventory management is not a strong suit, so organizations needing a robust inventory solution should be prepared to integrate a separate system or look elsewhere.

Pros

Accounting Power

  • Simple layout
  • Logical menu and format
  • Flexibility in designing reports
  • Department/location accounting
Steven Brewer | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • Invoicing: QuickBooks makes it easy to invoice customers, with recurring transactions, copying invoices to create new ones, and statements available instantly to let customers know where they stand.
  • Merged Banking: I've hooked up my bank accounts and credit card to QuickBooks and every day (or more often if you'd like), I can categorize and match transactions to make reconciling effortless.
  • Reports: I use reports often so help me with my B&O taxes for multiple states.

Cons

Accounting Power

  • CPA firm's client interface for delivery of bills to pay
  • Better ACH payment options for bill payment
  • Additional layer of department/location allocation
Steven Brewer | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • This is a very powerful program. Customer support must be top notch, and it is. Although I have talked to a few that seemed clueless--then I hang up and start over.
  • When I first started, 1 year ago, I created my own problems with no knowledge how to fix them. When calling customer support I just wanted them to take over and make everything right. I called almost daily. Agents were very patient and wanted to know if everything was corrected for fixed to may satisfaction.
  • There has to be easier access to online support, whether videos on youtube, or your own learning sessions. When a mistake is made, QuickBooks Online sometimes knows, and if a link was provided to a video or even a description, that would be great.

Needs some work. Support staff seem to be computer people, not accountants or users of the system. Their answers sometimes seem short and computer-based. Not answered in a way that says, "I have thought through this and here is what I see to do."

Alternatives Considered

Accounting Power

I find Accounting Power to have more flexibility, power, and reporting capability than QuickBooks Online with a simpler interface.
Steven Brewer | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

At this point, I'd say cost was a major factor in our decision. The features and connectivity of BQE to QuickBooks is really great, but it was more than we needed at this point. Training costs were very high for other similar products and we felt that a program shouldn't be cumbersome to use or it won't get used. So far, keeping up with data that we need to track in QuickBooks Online Advanced has been very manageable. We have a long way to go as we just started this year, but we are very happy with the features and progress made.

Return on Investment

Accounting Power

  • Allowed for standardized processes
  • Improved efficiency in disbursement processing
  • Bank feed is easily broken
  • ACH payment options are not well established
Steven Brewer | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • I cannot provide hard numbers but it has been easier for us to collect from customers using credit cards.
  • It has been easier to integrate Salesforce into QuickBooks and automations have been smooth ever since. Less time to create invoice[s] since everything is automated, we only need to match the payment that comes to our account.
  • It is easier for us to record transactions from bank feeds, less time, more tasks that can be done.
