As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

QuickBooks Enterprise

You'll want to go with this type of ERP solution if you're running a business with some level of complexity. For example, a manufacturing company with more than 50 employees and significant inventory tracking needs would be a good candidate for QuickBooks Enterprise. Additionally, a scenario where there are going to be a lot of accounting users would necessitate a product such as QuickBooks Enterprise rather than the basic QuickBooks desktop products. If you're starting out, or your business is in an earlier stage of development, you won't necessarily want to start out with Enterprise initially. If you use more of a "beginner" type accounting product (such as one of the other QuickBooks desktop products), you can always upgrade your data file later should you eventually use Enterprise.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • Inventory tracking: Lower end accounting products are much weaker in this regard and QuickBooks Enterprise is built with this functionality.
  • Reports: Much more robust reporting functionality than lower end accounting systems. Ability to mine data for better business decision making.
  • Number of users: QuickBooks Enterprise is designed for more concurrent users in an accounting department with simultaneous processes going on.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • It would be nice to be able to have more than one A/R and/or A/P account on a journal entry.
  • The budget piece is not strong. You can't create department budgets and have them roll into a company-wide budget. So making changes to the budget is a tedious process.
  • As far as the budget piece, you also can't create multiple what-if scenarios, which is very limiting, so we end up doing a lot of the budgeting process in Excel.
  • We don't know of a way to create allocation formulas in QuickBooks and be able to select applicable ones when posting transactions.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

QB is a good and reliable system. We probably should have explore the other modules rather that jump in to the conclusion that we needed a new ERP.

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

easy to learn system, specially with some kind of support. Just like with any other system, things get lot easier if you have guidance to lead you in your search for answers. having said that, QB is very easy to use and very easy to teach. you wont spend much time memorizing where to click.

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
Also considered Sage MAS products, but QuickBooks is easier to install and maintain. It also has a more friendly and easier to use interface which keeps employees happier and spend less time training. The reporting is also more flexible and can drill down to the source transaction with a few clicks of the mouse.

QBX to QBA is a great feature and easy way to transfer client records for a CPA review. The file is small enough to email and converts quickly giving the CPA access to all records as of a cutoff date. The CPA's adjustments and changes won't affect the client's records.

It is not a fair rating because we did not invest in different modules to accommodate for business grow and complexity expansion.
