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 Pro

Quickbooks is well suited for people who are comfortable with accounting software. It is much more useful for certain industries such as manufacturing where there is more of a workflow from manufacturing, shipping, invoicing, receiving payments. Since it is ubiquitous people will find it easier to get support and help with it from sources like accountants or online videos.

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.

  • Quickbooks is the standard and it does well to run reports and export them over various time periods and so on.
  • Sharing information with others and working with others is easy because of its ubiquity and people's familiarity with it.
  • Importing information from bank accounts is simple with banks that support file downloads in the supported format.

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.
Yvette Calhoun profile photo
  • Budgeting, forecasting and cash flow statements are very weak. For anything but very basic budgets we use Excel. However, QuickBooks is a $300 software program, not thousands of dollars.
  • Level of tech support is weak. Have to get to a supervisor or second level for anything other than the most basic questions.
  • Have an option in inventory to not allow an invoice or sales order for any item that has zero or negative quantities.

We've used the program for more than 20 years in our firm both with clients and as our software. For the cost and value of the program it works well for our firms needs and desires for an accounting software program. At this point to switch would not make sense.

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

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.

Haven't really used much else. Excel spreadsheets for smaller clients. QuickBooks allows us to work on clients books with the accountant's backup, while the client can still work on the current year information. General ledger provided the detail needed. Balances can be adjusted with journal entries and are pretty simple to enter.

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
  • 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.
