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 Pro

I have found QuickBooks to be very well suited to small to medium sized businesses that have mostly "normal" payrolls. I have had good success in working with non-profits that use QBP to track donors and to split transactions between program and admin for tax and reporting purposes. Businesses that are very specific in their needs, like construction, or that have very complicated payrolls or vendor payments (eg commissions, percentage calcs, etc.) may benefit from a software that is more specifically designed for their needs.

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.

  • Inventory Control - we are able to easily control what inventory comes in and goes out through our use of this feature.
  • Invoicing - we are able to easily invoice clients without the hassle of hand written (and sometimes illegible) invoices. Printing, emailing and saving invoices to a PDF make getting the invoices out seamless and allows cash flow to continue uninterrupted.
  • Billing - we use this feature in an unconventional way that allows us to see what we are paying out for services rendered by contract employees. Again super easy and seamless processing of outgoing funds.

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
  • The new updates coming in 2018 edition are covering some of my basic concerns and desires, for instance, the ability to stamp invoices PAST DUE within QuickBooks is going to be very useful for us.
  • I would like very much for the Bank Feeds center to work a bit less complicated perhaps direct linking to the bank as opposed to pulling the bank web address to access.
  • I work on three monitors, my current version will not allow me to utilize all three monitors. I understand the upgrade is going to fix that. I am very excited for this.

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.

We use it with all our clients and have several QuickBooks Pro Advisors and will renew and continue to use it with our client base. It is easy to use, helps with collecting annual data and makes compiling of information for filing annual tax returns much easier. It makes our job a lot easier, than using manual records.

It does the job. Mistakes can be corrected and it provides overall the information needed to complete financial statements or tax returns.

Best thing I ever did was to attend a two day training seminar on QuickBooks, I learned an immense amount in a short time with hands on training by experts. I strongly recommend such training for anyone using any part of the software. It will pay for itself in the first month.

No not really. I am not an IT person. Once I knew how to use it, it was quick and easy.

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.

QuickBooks Pro was more appropriate for our industry than Quicken and is certainly less limited than some other options I've used in the past.

To my knowledge QuickBooks Pro can't be cloned unless you have a backup of a freshly set up with no transaction company, however, our firm hasn't set up QuickBooks for anyone in a year or more. Given that QuickBooks is easy to learn and fairly easy to fix we rated the program a 6. However, given some of the problems with categories and the ability to either mispost transactions or double up transactions we didn't give it a higher rating. One other problem with the program is that for the payroll functionality they force an upgrade when otherwise you wouldn't need to upgrade the program

Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • Our expertise in QB has been a plus with both attracting and retaining clients
  • It enables us to offer a reasonably priced solution to client accounting needs.
  • We can operate more efficiently as most of our clients use QB and that makes our training more efficient.
