Well suited I would say when efficiently tracking down my debtor's and their due dates and sending them statements to pay or we would reduce their account facilities if they do take advantage of the warnings given prior to this. Easily it does the vat aspect if set up properly and stock control with correct part numbers being captured makes it so simple to run the firm in a cost efficient manner with a few admin assistants unlike previously required.

Read full review Cons Dedicated iPhone/Android app Read full review Extremely slow data entry rates for all forms: invoices, sales receipts, POs, bills, bill payments, checks, and deposits. If you are heavy into data entry like this, QB desktop will run circles around QB online. Need to refresh browser tabs containing reports, transactions, and reconciliations because they do not automatically update after entering or changing a transaction. This requires you to monitor the app to be sure the information it is giving you is accurate or at least makes sense after you make entries or adjustments. Inadequate tablet/phone app -- very limited functions, especially for a business owner. A quasi-desktop/cloud interface app for QB Online that in the past caused blue screen errors for me, requiring uninstallation. Quality of support varies SIGNIFICANTLY depending on time of year, current onshore or offshore strategy of Intuit, and organization of support delivery. Extremely weak support and willingness to stand by their merchant services, in one case causing a month-long delay to receive payment on a check from a regular customer who banked at the same bank as me. And the CEO's office could not resolve either. Loyalty to customers and advisor networks has consistently decreased. Costs continue to rise, well before our recent inflationary period, roughly doubling in about 5 to 6 years. Will sell your employees' salaries to credit monitoring services without your actively taking steps to prevent. "Anonymizes" your business' performance data to share with other business owners, including your competitors. It is unclear how much is shared and to what depth. You cannot opt out. If you don't know what you are doing, or if your bookkeeper doesn't, you can create one helluva mess. Introductory offers for product set-up and advice (from Intuit directly) are weak. For implementing QBO you really need training from someone who can work directly with you on your books. This is increasingly true as you move up the ladder of product complexity/function. Software look, feel, and feature changes that happen with no real notice of what is coming and its impact on your work flow. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
I'm giving Blinksale a 10 because it really is a perfect invoicing app. Sure, there are things that can be grown, but comparative to other invoicing apps I've used, Blinksale is lights-out. There isn't a small business owner that doesn't need to try out Blinksale for invoicing.

After evaluating and using several invoicing applications, I landed on Blinksale. They just fit my needs perfectly as a small business owner. The app is brilliantly designed, easy to navigate, painless, and makes invoices look great to clients. Tracking invoices and getting paid inside Blinksale are a breeze. On top of that, their unlimited plan for $15 a month is a steal for the product they are offering.

QuickBooks Desktop provides slightly more features and functionality, at the cost of disk space and the lack of cloud access. We chose the Online version of this software as the accounting and finance staff travel frequently and may access information remotely. QuickBooks provides significantly less features and functionality than Oracle NetSuite, but it comes at a fraction of the cost. As a smaller startup, NetSuite is not affordable for us at this time.
