I think it is well suited as long as the locations where an employee is allowed to clock in and out are tightly monitored by job title to prevent persons from clocking in/out while on their commute or when they are absent

QuickBooks for Mac

It's easy and fun to use QuickBooks for Mac when it is set up right. It works well for the most part and has only a few bugs. I would rate it a 9 if it was able to do job costing for wages, and if there were more programs/apps that integrate with it.But if you are choosing accounting technology QuickBooks for Mac might be a poor choice because an online accounting program, instead of premise-based software, will make it easier to collaborate with your bookkeeper, CPA, Advisor, etc.. The exception is running QuickBooks for Mac in a hosted environment which allows multiple users to access it. Of course if your internet connection is unreliable, you are not ready for online accounting software! In that case, QuickBooks for Mac is easy to use, just be sure it's set up right first.

Pros

  • Easy to use mobile app
  • Ability to view pay statements
  • Ability to view and download necessary pay and tax documents
No photo available
  • Online banking is easy and fun to learn, and saves data-entry for those little debits/ATM's on your bank statement.
  • Invoices can be designed to look nice and emailed with a "Pay link which speeds up cash flow; a #1 concern for new businesses.
  • Save money by using the online payroll that syncs in data so you don't have to enter complicated paychecks at all.

Cons

  • Application is very slow
  • Have had issues with app crashing/errors
  • Wish there was a feature to compare different paychecks or project future paychecks

  • Any concerns I have would be with QuickBooks Online and its functionality and not the app. The web version is the same as the app so when I do need to use the web version on a PC, the familiarity is there to not miss a beat.

I remain neutral as I am more than willing to support it and will recommend it if that is the appropriate choice.

The Mac version is OK overall. I find the Windows versions to be much more robust but Mac is quite good for Mac users. Though I think die hard Mac users should consider QuickBooks Online instead as there is a new QB for Mac app that makes using QBO much better!

I've been using the QuickBooks online version for a little over 6 months now (upgraded from Mac desktop) and I haven't had any access issues. There have been times when it was down for service/upgrade however there is always plenty of notification time given by the Quick Books Online Support team. These upgrade maintenance time frames are always over night hours and on the weekends so everything can be worked around very easily.

Alternatives Considered

Both software do the same types of things. I think either is a good choice, I would just recommend you consolidate all your processes onto one software. Having multiple software can be tedious and confusing for employees.
