Personally, I was always very satisfied with the Budget Maestro product and platform. I used Hyperion Essbase in my prior company and felt Analytics Maestro had very similar capabilities and features which made learning the product very easy. The ongoing support has been tremendous and this is an area I find many competitors in the marketplace to have room for improvement.

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

Quickbooks Desktop Enterprise is well suited, based on it's cost, for a medium business. It's focus and functionality is for those who are using it for bill processing, invoice payment, payroll (where needed), regular account reconciliations, regular government remittances, job type breakdowns, etc. It might be less appropriate for a small business, where few transactions are done or where regular postings aren't being used

Cons

Planning Maestro

  • Took some time to roll out the cloud-based solution.
  • The older version (not cloud-based) we used took about an hour to refresh after data load.
  • The older version did take some time learning how to use the product to its fullest capabilities.
Eric Korpalski | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

  • Online payments! Most of my clients who want to do online payments do not want to use their online payment system, and QuickBooks Desktop does not have an intuitive option to allow for the processing fees that go along with using other vendors for this. It is a BIG downside for my business that's mostly online where most clients do not want to use QuickBooks for payment.
  • A simpler way to sync account information from my small banking institution. The files come over but they're cumbersome to translate to QuickBooks Desktop. I tried QuickBooks Online and that's worse.
  • There are too many accounting-centered options for my businesses. Both are small but need more options than what is offered in QuickBooks Online, yet the additional features of QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise is just too much for our needs. We need a middle of the road option that is efficient for small businesses.

We've been using QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions from when the business started, 11 years ago. I don't see us changing programs any time soon as it is working pretty well for us now. It would be extremely time consuming to start from scratch with a new accounting or inventory management program.

I like the QuickBooks Enterprise edition so much I moved my company to it this year. I like the overall functionality of the program and I am very familiar with the user interface which makes my job easier. One of the things I dislike about the online version it is not modeled after the desktop edition and I have a hard time getting around in the program.

QB is a good and reliable system. We probably should have explore the other modules rather that jump in to the conclusion that we needed a new ERP.

Very rare do I call the Quickbooks Enterprise Solutions support staff and I get a customer service associate quickly. On average, my wait time is near an hour, and at times even longer. After spending the first three minutes discussing my problem, they then begin to poke and prod around, sometimes the questions continue. But 80% of the time, the problem is over their head and they have to escalate the issue. The only problem is this escalation arrives usually after spending forty-five minutes poking and proding around but learning nothing. In short, my experience is rarely all that well, let alone great

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

easy to learn system, specially with some kind of support. Just like with any other system, things get lot easier if you have guidance to lead you in your search for answers. having said that, QB is very easy to use and very easy to teach. you wont spend much time memorizing where to click.

If you're loading QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions onto a computer that you're going to directly log into, you should be able to do it yourself. If you are going to connect to a server through a network or remote connection, you should probably have a professional IT person set it up for you.

Alternatives Considered

Planning Maestro

Our company evaluated 6 product offerings in the market place a year ago and felt Budget Maestro and Vena offered the largest return on our investment at their price points. We have always been very satisfied with the product and its customer service. Since we have grown over 600% over 4 years, many of the new layers of management used other products in prior careers and we are currently at a point where the entire organization may be transitioning to an ERP solution to manage all finance and accounting functions. I would always recommend Budget Maestro as a great budgeting and analytical tool for FP&A teams as we were able to accomplish a high amount of monthly reports with a small team over the years.

We initially considered Xero, but ended up going with QuickBooks [Desktop Enterprise] because it seemed more intuitive. Since then, I have had a CFO recommend we switch to NetSuite, but that seems much more complex and beyond our current level as a company.

It is not a fair rating because we did not invest in different modules to accommodate for business grow and complexity expansion.

Return on Investment

Planning Maestro

  • We were a very small company growing by acquisition so it worked well during these phases of our company growth.
  • The return for our cost was tremendous especially in comparison to peers in the market.
  • Analytics Maestro allowed us to grow without adding headcount by building efficient reports that can easily be mass-produced for all branches within our organization.
Eric Korpalski | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

  • We were able to pass our financial audit. However, some parts of our balance sheet schedules needed manipulation outside of excel to tie the numbers in our balance sheet schedule to the Financial Statements.
  • There is a lot less excel work than our previous system. As such, we didn't need to hire part-time accountants.
