Likelihood to Recommend

Sage Intacct

Sage Intacct is well suited for any growing company, with a lot of transaction and detail volume. The importing functions of the software are great and they reduce the time needed and increase efficiency within my team.Sage Intacct is not necessarily suited for a company that does not have the volume to justify such a detailed or customized reporting function.

QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions would be great for a company that is buying products and just reselling them as-is. It is great at keeping track of quantities remaining from previous purchases and time periods, adding new inventory purchased, and subtracting inventory sold. It would also work well for a company that purchased materials to manufacture items for stock, and then sold those stock items. QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions does not work very well for manufacturing of one-off or custom products as each item has to be "built", whether it is 1 item or 100 items. It also does not have an easy way to account for scrap or materials damaged in the manufacturing process.

Pros

Sage Intacct

  • The reporting is powerful. The ability to create dimension groups (account and department specifically) are, in my mind, understated by the Company. I am able to create different versions of balance sheets and income statements fairly easily that run at the push of a button.
  • Push-button consolidation. Consolidation is quick and easy.
  • AR and AP revaluation reports. These reports calculate the unrealized FX gain / loss on AR and AP at the push of a button. You can choose from the Intacct daily rates or input your own rates.
  • Custom fields are easy to create and can be included in custom reports making reporting even more powerful!

  • Quickbook's user interface is incredibly user-friendly. Non-Accountants are able to pick up the system relatively easy . They should be able to enter transactions without fully understanding the accounting.
  • There is a lot of material on the internet if you need help how to use Quickbooks. They have various forums in which you can find the answers since there is bound to be another person that had already experienced your problem.
  • Quickbooks has developed a lot of integration with other 3rd party software. For example, we use Avalara to assess sales tax for our invoices. There are APIs built so Quickbooks can send the relevant invoice information to Avalara to produce sales tax.

Cons

Sage Intacct

  • The reporting is overly complicated and hard to use. The UI is terrible. Had we known about this prior to purchasing, we would have chosen a competitor instead.
  • The projects module needs a better resource and project management tool. Again, the UI is not user-friendly, and the reporting is extremely difficult to utilize. A lot of work towards improvement needs to be put into the Projects Module.
  • It would be very useful to enable more flexibility in making changes to posted transactions that are not in a closed period. It's frustrating having to reverse a series of transactions just to make a minor $0.01 change in the original transaction. Or if a transaction was posted to the wrong account, it would be nice to be able to change the account posting, instead of having to reverse and recreate the transaction. I would also like to be able to post an item to different accounts, depending on the circumstances.

  • Not Cloud Based: In order to use QuickBooks Enterprise as a cloud based type product one needs to pay for hosting and have the product/data hosted which will run into extra expense. Additionally, this workaround is not a true cloud solution.
  • Operating System Compatibility: When upgrading operating systems on user workstations, more problems are prone to occur. There is sometimes a disconnect between Microsoft and Intuit in compatibility.
  • Expensive Upgrades: This is not the type of accounting product that you can easily use for years without upgrading. Thus, one needs to build this into their operating budget.

This system is always improving. They're never satisfied with the current product. Their customer service is also unmatched. Our account manager is always checking in to see how we're utilizing Sage Intacct and if our business needs are being met

We are not likely to renew our use of QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions because we use QuickBooks 2013 now. It was a nice stepping stone to our current edition but 2013 is easier on the eyes and even more easy to navigate. I also like that the functions I don't use are smaller and can be ignored more easily.

It takes some time to get adjusted with the system and know your way around. Overall, this is a great system that allows multiple systems to adequately integrate in order to automate a lot of information that comes from external sources.

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.

currently you must submit a ticket via the customer portal and then wait for a response. The time you must wait for the response varies based on the urgency of your request. Sometimes you just need a quick response and a phone call would be easier or even a live chat ~ would love to see them roll that out instead of having to wait when you have a question or issue.

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

It was great for generic training but we had the system modified by our third party implementer and a lot of that was not covered in various training's that we received or took online. Attended Advantage last year and that as super helpful in learning a lot of the intricacies of the system.

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.

I would not use a thrid party administrator to implement your system, especially if you are going to be modifying the system at all. Use Intacct implementors as they will be able to better support you on any issues that come up after you go live.

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

Sage Intacct

I came onboard and QuickBooks was currently implemented but had not been set up properly. I dislike how I couldn't control all report functions within QB and immediately started looking for a new solution. While Intacct provides the users with many standard reports, I was able to change everything I wanted to better match the specific needs of my company. This was imperative in my decision to find new accounting software. Additionally I needed the ability to tightly control what users could post in the system and Intacct allows me full control over what gets processed

Also considered Sage MAS products, but QuickBooks is easier to install and maintain. It also has a more friendly and easier to use interface which keeps employees happier and spend less time training. The reporting is also more flexible and can drill down to the source transaction with a few clicks of the mouse.

Return on Investment

Sage Intacct

  • We have been able to perform a 10-day close using Intacct, which generates a positive ROI for my team
  • Our reporting and access to transaction level details is also a positive ROI
  • I have not freed up time for my AP accountant as the AP and PO approval workflows are cumbersome, negative ROI here
Mark Simmonds CPA CMA CA profile photo

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

  • It has been very inefficient around budget time between August - March.
  • It is fairly efficient when it comes to entering revenue and expenses, except that certain invoices are entered in Excel spreadsheets first to obtain department allocations.
  • It has slowed down the month-end report generation due to having many of the reports created in Excel from reports / information exported from QuickBooks.
