For a smaller business who isn't interested in having more than one user I think MYOB can serve them well. But if they want multiple users or are using virtual assistants there are better cloud based apps that are much more affordable and have far greater enhancements as well as integrations

QuickBooks Desktop Pro

QuickBooks Desktop Pro is ideal for small business owners who want the option of controlling their management costs by maintaining accounting in-house with limited staff/budget. It is easy to purchase, install and use...especially for those who are not necessarily accountants by trade. I would say that above all, its simplicity is its best asset. It can perform the majority of accounting functions quickly and easily, and it counts many users...which is always an advantage in my opinion.
As a disadvantage, I would say that it does have a limit in terms of size of organization for which it be of optimal use. Its low price would be attractive to anyone when factoring accounting software costs, but the fact is that I have seen other software suites that are much more robust, and subsequently more viable for larger enterprises with more complex accounting needs....for example, multiple users, international accounting needs, etc...

Pros

MYOB

  • Invoices
  • Purchase Orders
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Desktop Pro

  • Inventory management with low stock indicators has made it easy to ensure I have the necessary parts and supplies I need for my jobs.
  • Time tracking and being able to invoice on that time makes it simple to bill clients for work I have performed. Prior to QuickBooks I had time that I wasn't getting paid for because I would forget to invoice for it.
  • The extensive number of reports available as well as customizations allows me to see how my sales are doing on a regular basis in different areas of the market.

Cons

MYOB

  • Allows the client to manipulate dates when that can screw up their books
  • constantly freezes which causes the file to be corrupt
  • force balances the balance sheet
Kati Hesley | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Desktop Pro

  • QuickBooks largest setback is the UI. It is a bit cumbersome and not entirely intuitive if you have never used QuickBooks before.
  • Occasionally QuickBooks has a hard time communicating with your bank, but it is usually fixed after a couple attempts.
  • QuickBooks does need to be bought each year to stay up to date.

Overall the features of PRO are just not enough to run a great company with good reporting and smooth accounting. If you're serious about getting your finances organized, step up to PREMIER or ACCOUNTANT. The small additional investment will be well worth while. And for truly world-class security and performance, please consider having your QuickBooks hosted on a virtual network. By doing this you will relieve yourself of the hassle, expense, and danger of making your own backups, protecting your QuickBooks files from viruses, and of course, getting hacked. A hosted platform will protect you from all of these things and make your QuickBooks files available to your team from anywhere in the world.

It does require some training to get used to, it's not really something you can figure out on your own. Every company is also going to have their own custom features. But, I feel really confident using it now after months of training and scenarios

I haven't had any major issues or complaints. I think there is always room for improvement; the software isn't flawless, but it has been super helpful in creating manageable financials for our start-up business. When I have needed support help, which hasn't been real often, usually the problem is resolvable. I have occasionally had to pay extra fees for help, but nothing unreasonable.

Best thing I ever did was to attend a two day training seminar on QuickBooks, I learned an immense amount in a short time with hands on training by experts. I strongly recommend such training for anyone using any part of the software. It will pay for itself in the first month.

We implemented the software ourselves. The training we received on the software was done by taking a community course teaching us how to use QuickBooks. It allowed me to get started with some basics of how to use the program and have not needed much assistance since completing the course work.

Alternatives Considered

MYOB

Not even close. Though I will say MYOB had a budget module where Zoho Books doesn't which is one thing severely lacking in Zoho Books. On the other hand, Zoho Books allows for payment processing integration without trying to get a cut from the process whereas MYOB allowed for payment processing but you had to go through their service only and it wasn't cheap.

I would recommend QuickBooks Pro over QuickBooks Online for almost everyone. It is easy to learn the basics, the payroll is so much easier to use, the reports are better and easier to use. The advantages of QBP far outweigh those of QBO. When asked, I recommend QBP almost every time.

Return on Investment

MYOB

  • MYOB dropped software updates for Apple IOS
  • Lack of software updates / support had a MAJOR NEGATIVE IMPACT

QuickBooks Desktop Pro

  • By entering our bills as they arrive we get reminders when payment dates are coming due as well as making it easy to track where the money is going
  • Invoicing has made tracking money owed to us easy and cut down on having to call people looking for money owee to us.
  • Quickbooks built-in templates for invoicing & quotes we have been able to have a more professional look to present to customers
