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

It started off a bit clunky but continuous updates and improvements have made it great and staple. I never have to use the web version now

Pros

  • I am impressed with the layout of mobile solutions. It is very simple to read and use.
  • I am looking forward to giving our techs access to clock in and out as they complete jobs on their routes to give a more accurate view of time spent driving and time spent at a customer's location.
  • Giving employees mobile access to their own pay statements, W2's allows them to deal directly with loan-mortgage companies when applying for a loan or doing their taxes.

  • Track income
  • Track expenses
  • Generate reports
  • Aids in balancing checkbooks- reconciling
  • Interface with MacOS is good

Cons

  • Since our company would like to use this tool for their techs, it would be nice if there was bar code reader (or something similar) so they tie their time card with our serv suite pest management technology.
  • I would like for the mobile app to give the individual the ability to send in address / phone number changes.

  • Not much to say in this area, but I caution users who convert their data to PC versions for tax purposes to carefully compare accrual/cash versions between the two software because they may not match.
  • The Mac versions are not comparable to the PC versions. QuickBooks 2017 for Mac will not necessarily have the same features as the PC version.
  • The biggest challenge for most desktop users is what I call version error. That is where clients have one version of the data on one computer and then back it up and use it on another PC. Every year I hear stories about how this resulted in the loss of data because the user forgot to restore the most current version of the data.

I haven't spent that much time with the newer versions of QuickBooks for Mac, but I think I'm seeing it make the much-needed improvements. For example, something as simple as undoing the previous reconciliation was a terrible chore, and I'm glad that feature has been included in the newer versions of QuickBooks for Mac

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

I have not used another mobile solution...But I am impressed with this one. At age 52 if I find it easy to use then it must be very intuitive.

Installing QB was easy and straight forward in comparison to other Mac apps. I'll be interested to see if updates are easy to accomplish. Adobe products are all cloud based as is QB & I am still uneasy about that as our business is located in a fairly remote & rural area and internet service although normally reliable is less so that in a major metro area.

Return on Investment

  • We have not had real test of the impact yet since we have not been able to roll out to our pest management techs.
  • I believe that if we keep trying to educate our employees on how to access and use the mobile solutions app we will see more positive feedback because of the ease of access to their information.
Yvette Calhoun profile photo
  • It is to early for me to evaluate this. It will probably come down to how much time does QR save me vs. what the yearly cost + yearly credit card fees amount to.
