It is very helpful for budgeting and reporting. I love how easy it is to automate reports and presentations. It can be more difficult to plan specific activities. It feels more high-level than activity-level. It shows totals rather than individual transactions (either past or future transactions).

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

  • Infinite ability to group accounts and departments for reporting. The only limitation is the number of ways that you think of in terms of consolidating the information.
  • Being able to build scalable, complex, distributed, budget models. With the data we can bring into the system and the formulas we can use we have all the functionality of the spreadsheet, but with the flexibility to allow leaders across the organization to participate and update their section.
  • The platform allows multiple forecast/budget versions which allows for version control and sensitivity analysis. I can lock versions from changes while quickly creating a new version to see the impact of a +or- scenario to the company’s profitability.
  • With the OfficeConnect tool we can leverage Excel to provide repeatable reports for the board and other business leaders that are repeatable from month to month. While the platform provides more flexibility than an accounting package it still has limitations. Using OfficeConnect I can leverage the power of the Microsoft suite of Excel/Word/PowerPoint directly.

  • It's user friendly which makes it easy to teach someone how to use the basic features.
  • Many nonprofit agencies tend to use QuickBooks so I like that it uses language that nonprofits use. For instance, you can use one chart of accounts and use classes or categories to track different programs or events.
  • You can have two company files open at once which is great if you're trying to compare data between the two.

Cons

  • Model - It takes a little bit of time to get familiar with how the model works.

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

Breadth of Deployment

It is used throughout the company in different divisions and at our corporate level. When used in a division recently the personnel from different departments directly inputted data and monitored their budget against actual. It is very user friendly and flexible.

Alternatives Considered

To be honest - Host Analytics seemed relatively similar to Adaptive. However, Adaptive was our number one choice because:- The Adaptive suite looked a lot better. It seemed smarter and "sharper" and the data visualisation was better.- The people from Adaptive throughout the selection process were more helpful and insightful. This was confirmed throughout the implementation where we had really excellent service and help from Adaptive.

Many clients already use QuickBooks so they send us their QuickBooks information. Therefore, we need the QuickBooks software to be able to open their files. We also may use it to enter client data to summarize information in a succinct manner to be able to see the detail of client information.
