Retail, professional services, non-manufacturing, or non-inventory-based clients are a great fit.

QuickBooks Online is well suited for businesses of all sizes, from sole proprietors to mega-corporations. User-defined roles ensure that a person can only see what they need to see, without having access to some of the more confidential info that management may not want the user to have. It can be tailored to fit any type of business, with a little patience.

      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."

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

      We looked at other products but honestly from an ease of use and price point, we focused on QuickBooks Online Advanced from the beginning and are happy with that decision. We have several trusted partners that use some form of QB, and their input was invaluable when making the decision to finally migrate over.
