Larger companies, multi-currency. Clearbooks is in a competitive environment with Xero, SageOne, FreeAgent, Intuit etc., etc.

QuickBooks Online Advanced

QBO Advanced is well suited to almost any mid-sized organization, probably up until the enterprise level where a more customizable solution might be appropriate. At a 1 mil budget, my organization is just scratching the surface of the features. Inventory management is not a strong suit, so organizations needing a robust inventory solution should be prepared to integrate a separate system or look elsewhere.

Pros

Clearbooks

  • SaaS, so accessible by anyone, anywhere in the world via a browser
  • Clear and straight forward navigation
  • Good choice of management reports
Peter Cowley | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • Invoicing: QuickBooks makes it easy to invoice customers, with recurring transactions, copying invoices to create new ones, and statements available instantly to let customers know where they stand.
  • Merged Banking: I've hooked up my bank accounts and credit card to QuickBooks and every day (or more often if you'd like), I can categorize and match transactions to make reconciling effortless.
  • Reports: I use reports often so help me with my B&O taxes for multiple states.

Cons

Clearbooks

  • Like any SaaS product, Clearbooks is continuously evolving and being improved
  • Some of the reports still need some work
Peter Cowley | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • This is a very powerful program. Customer support must be top notch, and it is. Although I have talked to a few that seemed clueless--then I hang up and start over.
  • When I first started, 1 year ago, I created my own problems with no knowledge how to fix them. When calling customer support I just wanted them to take over and make everything right. I called almost daily. Agents were very patient and wanted to know if everything was corrected for fixed to may satisfaction.
  • There has to be easier access to online support, whether videos on youtube, or your own learning sessions. When a mistake is made, QuickBooks Online sometimes knows, and if a link was provided to a video or even a description, that would be great.

Alternatives Considered

Clearbooks

Clearbooks was chosen 5 years ago as our accountant recommended it. There is an element of inertia in moving accounts packages.
Peter Cowley | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

At this point, I'd say cost was a major factor in our decision. The features and connectivity of BQE to QuickBooks is really great, but it was more than we needed at this point. Training costs were very high for other similar products and we felt that a program shouldn't be cumbersome to use or it won't get used. So far, keeping up with data that we need to track in QuickBooks Online Advanced has been very manageable. We have a long way to go as we just started this year, but we are very happy with the features and progress made.

Return on Investment

Clearbooks

  • I am not sure that ROI is an appropriate measure for an accounts package. The cost is around £250/year, which is a tiny fraction of the cost of a bookkeeper/finance controller/finance director/CFO.
Peter Cowley | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Online Advanced

  • I cannot provide hard numbers but it has been easier for us to collect from customers using credit cards.
  • It has been easier to integrate Salesforce into QuickBooks and automations have been smooth ever since. Less time to create invoice[s] since everything is automated, we only need to match the payment that comes to our account.
  • It is easier for us to record transactions from bank feeds, less time, more tasks that can be done.
