    Acctivate is best suited for very basic inventory needs. It syncs up well with Standalone Quickbooks and tracks physical inventory really well. I wouldn't recommend it if you need a complex suite for a larger business. Needs a lot of improvement. If you need a vendor, purchasing, PO system - I would suggest looking elsewhere.

    I see that everything is acceptable and good especially the customer service, because when a problem occurs to us, it takes a little time for them to solve it and answer the inquiry and some questions, and I think this is great for getting to work faster and not wasting time.

    • We still depend upon third party services for uploading bank feeds.
    • Few banks do not provide bank feeds, converting PDF's to bank feeds is challenge.
    • If Quick Enterprise can build its own utility where we can convert PDFs to bank feeds. That would be great.

      We've been using QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions from when the business started, 11 years ago. I don't see us changing programs any time soon as it is working pretty well for us now. It would be extremely time consuming to start from scratch with a new accounting or inventory management program.

      I like the QuickBooks Enterprise edition so much I moved my company to it this year. I like the overall functionality of the program and I am very familiar with the user interface which makes my job easier. One of the things I dislike about the online version it is not modeled after the desktop edition and I have a hard time getting around in the program.

      Very rare do I call the Quickbooks Enterprise Solutions support staff and I get a customer service associate quickly. On average, my wait time is near an hour, and at times even longer. After spending the first three minutes discussing my problem, they then begin to poke and prod around, sometimes the questions continue. But 80% of the time, the problem is over their head and they have to escalate the issue. The only problem is this escalation arrives usually after spending forty-five minutes poking and proding around but learning nothing. In short, my experience is rarely all that well, let alone great

      It is a very easy system to learn, so with the help it was even easier. QB is a good solid system, but it lacks some of the complexity other systems have. with QB you need to get additional modules to get the same functionality that other systems offer standard

      If you're loading QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions onto a computer that you're going to directly log into, you should be able to do it yourself. If you are going to connect to a server through a network or remote connection, you should probably have a professional IT person set it up for you.

      Sage is offline, very cumbersome to work with and does not have the type of features that quickbooks has. Sage was pretty horrible to work with. Trying to find reports was awful and running payroll was difficult. Quickbooks is far superior to Sage and would never recommend Sage to anyone.

      • Meets our needs for invoicing, saves manual process resulting in one staff position reduction
      • Onsite install saves us several thousand dollars.
      • Inventory has caused an external processing and data entry expense - this costs a couple of thousand dollars initially and now annually is a cost of $2,000 labor.
      • Statements that are not reflective of individual customer terms render some customers' statments useless.
      • Vendor payment management has eliminated late fees saving several hundred dollars per year.
      • The new licensing scheme has us looking at competitive systems and we are finding more than we expected at much less cost.
      • Customer support for assistance on older versions to recover the admin password cost us 4 months of delay and at least five thousand dollars in staff time.
