Hiveage

For a very small business or a freelancer this is an excellent billing/invoicing system. Easy to get set up and configured quickly so you can get paid online quickly. It works very well for what it is intended. But for a growing small business it doesn't have the more complex accounting/bookkeeping features you might need. There is some limitation to customization as well.

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

Hiveage

  • Setting up to receive online payments from a number of payment processors was quick and easy, and the range of processors was excellent.
  • Invoicing and recurring invoicing were easy and straightforward to use, and clients liked it as well.
  • The entire system is user-friendly and very easy to use for anyone. It has all the basics you need for billing/invoicing for a small business and is especially ideal for freelancers.

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

Hiveage

  • Mobile app still needed some work, but they were going in the right direction.
  • Would like to see them add more accounting/bookkeeping functions.
  • Preferred the old pricing structure vs the current one.
Jen Garfinkel-Canseco | 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

Hiveage

Hiveage and FreshBooks are actually pretty comparable. I tested both before choosing Hiveage. At the time that I chose Hiveage, the reason for choosing it was that the pricing was cheaper with their old pricing structure (you could select what features you did and didn't need as "modules" and just pay for what you used). The pricing is now comparable and both offer the same features, and similar ease-of-use.

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

Hiveage

  • Hiveage was perfect for my small business when I was smaller, and it worked well to get invoices paid online from clients quickly and easily.
  • The invoices were professional-looking, and the ease of use to make payments made clients happy.
  • Keeping track of time for billing to specific projects was advantageous as well.
Jen Garfinkel-Canseco | 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.
