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

One of my clients is a manufacturing company utilizing QuickBooks with 15 employees to manage all aspects of their business. Frequent tasks being performed are generating purchase orders for raw materials, invoicing customers for finished products, and payroll. As the primary person supporting this installation I've found it easy to manage, control permissions for users, and upgrade each workstation. I also provide basic training on the operation of QuickBooks and even the employees with no previous experience find it easy to use and learn.

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.

  • Quickbooks data base grows and grows. Our data file is now 2 Gig. I have tried to shrink it many times but the program is cumbersome and so far I have had little success. My only real complaint.

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.

The software is pretty straight forward, it does what I need it to do, and there is no-deal killer issues creating a need for other software. Continuing with QuickBooks makes sense as being familiar with QuickBooks Pro prevents the need to try to learn a different software, and knowing how to use this software already is a big reason to stick with it long into the future.

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

Get transferred a lot between people. Have gotten disconnected and it is impossible to get back to the same support person. Seems like always get the incorrect department for my issues and I have to be transferred. Sometimes the support people are very helpful and polite. They try to help, but are not always able to. Some support personnel are clueless when it comes to some issues.

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.

  • It was a great time saver. Once we knew how to use the software well we were able to save good amounts of time in our business finances.
  • It provided a great place for data management where whiteboards had previously been used
  • It was nice because it allowed us to mange all the parts of our company on the same database
