AccountMate

AccountMate is a great product for wholesale and distributors. It manages the inventory cycles comprehensively, from purchasing to stocking, to sales and delivery. There are a great many tools available to manage inventory, properties, and financials. The availability to have third-party add-ons offers even greater opportunities to meet the needs of the end-user.The system is not really suited for certain types of service industries: legal, medical, and those businesses that invoice on time.

QuickBooks Online

Quickbooks Online is super well suited for small business owners who are on the go and need access to their bookkeeping across multiple devices. You can leave the desktop and carry your books in your pocket for billing, invoicing, expensing, payroll any time, anywhere. I know there are time tracking plugins as well as other integrations that allow for your staff to submit reports directly to the software which is a brilliant addition.

Pros

AccountMate

  • Ease of use
  • Ability to easily adapt the solution to fit the needs of the end user
  • Integration of data across different platforms
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online

  • The user interface is clean and things are easy to find. This saves us time from having to look for things we need. If we can't find something, the Help and Search features are easy to use.
  • There is a bar graph at the top of my Customers page that shows a breakdown of overdue invoices, open invoices, and those that have been paid in the last 30 days. This is nice because I can see all this information quickly when I need it.
  • We can customize invoices as much as we need to and it is very user-friendly. We can email individual invoices or in bulk to save time. We can send invoice reminders and statements in a flash as well. All of these things help us get paid on time.
Jennifer Walschap | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

AccountMate

  • Custom reports: The current system uses Crystal Reports, which is a bit cumbersome.
  • True cloud-based solution is missing
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online

  • Non-profit functionality for fundraising - I have to categorize accounts receivable as sales, and instead of being able to show collection of the sale and put the funds into our fundraising (income) account upon collection, I have to delete the sale and recategorize the expense as a fundraising
  • Reports could be more clearly labeled so I could find what I need better (e.g. being able to pull how much I paid a contractor by name).
  • Reconciliation of errors between bank and QuickBooks accounts - I make mistakes, I need to know there's an easy way to reset the account to zero our minor errors, but have not yet found the means to do so.

It like the product 'right out of the box' and I trust Intuit will continually improve it over the years based on my experience with their desktop products. The large providers of Apps makes customizing the entire package relatively easy and seamless for a wide variety of business types.

It's Easy enough to learn the basic for a new user; though if you are required to go more in depth in recording assets or liability accounts it could get somewhat confusing for the every day user who doesn't know double-entry accounting. It's great for a business that just wants profit and loss information available at their fingertips.

There are tab issues. When I tab the field doesn't highlight and I have to backspace or delete what is in the field. Happens on the memo field and sometimes other fields. Very time consuming.

Not that overally impressed with the support when having issues with the app or desktop version. I lost my patience and at times just gave up and tried another process outside of QuickBooks. This is definitely something QuickBooks needs to work on improving as this could lose them customers in the long run. The benefits at the moment outweigh any of the frustrations I face.

I'm frustrated. Wound up with two companies, have to keep switching back and forth. This is unsatisfactory!

Alternatives Considered

AccountMate

We use AccountMate for a number of reasons, particularly its ease of use and the ability to customize any part of the system (with source code residing on the end-user system--a HUGE advantage).
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online

I have not used any other products similar to QuickBooks Online. I have used it ever since we started our business. I tried the desktop app at one point, however, it constantly would shut down, so I think online is more reliable because you can log in anywhere.

Return on Investment

AccountMate

  • Allows us to quickly gain insight into the current and past performance of the company
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online

  • QBO allowed us to integrate with our CPA quickly, absolute must to keep in compliance with tax laws.
  • Having our books organized in QBO is critical for commercial bank loan officers if you need financing.
  • We are able to manage bookkeeping and accounting needs with no staff dedicated to that function - those are tangible cost savings.
