Likelihood to Recommend

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

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.

Sage 300 ERP

I believe that Sage 300 ERP is appropriate for a wide variety of companies looking for a system to maintain information in a concise manner. The level of complexity with which it is used is determined by the user group. Therefore, this product is great for companies that are just starting to grow right through to more mature companies looking for detailed data and analytics from their systems.

Pros

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

  • 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.

Sage 300 ERP

  • Sage 300 ERP is user friendly for data entry. All screens can be formatted to meet our needs. I have worked with several different accounting software and Sage is the best one I have used. The help section is very easy to follow and Sage has a good support system.
  • The Payroll module is very easy to use and the updates that Sage provides are always timely. The reporting for monthly, quarterly and year end reports for Payroll Taxes give you all the answers you need to file accurate reports to the Federal and State governments.
  • The Bank Service module allows you to reconcile bank statement with ease. Reconciling three bank statements takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete.

Cons

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

  • 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.

  • Little things, like changing the company name - are more difficult than we would like (We used to be MSDSSAB but legally shortened it to MSDSB).
  • A management financial reporting tool with live access - to premade reports - without paying an arm and a leg would be appreciated.
  • More training opportunities in local areas - or nearby - would be appreciated...

Likelihood to Renew

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise 9.0
Based on 11 answers
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 is a solid stable product with a large user community and large ISV community. Support and Training are easy to access and obtain and there is larger reseller channel to ensure the firm you work with is honest. It is scalable and there are multiple deployment and payment options.

Usability

Based on 5 answers
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.

Every product can use modest improvement. Sage needs a more modern interface using some of the functionality we see in common interfaces we use every day in the web and with modern operating systems.

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.

Support

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise 9.0
Based on 4 answers
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

Turnover is high in the Sage Support department so sometimes it is difficult to get a rep who knows the issue well. Reps are good and getting assistance when they need it. Sometimes support is more interested in closing issue than actually solving problem. It can be difficult at times to have issues escalated but overall the support is good.

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

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

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.

Sage 300 was selected before I came to this company, these are others I've previously used or evaluated. I'm happy overall with Sage 300, as it does what it needs to, even if it's not super fancy. The functionality is as robust as you need it to be; it's scalable.

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

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.

Sage 300 ERP

  • It allows our company to efficiently and effectively maintain and track our job cost.
  • Its reliable performance allows us to function continually.
  • It also provides our division managers with reports that they can use to determine where we are experiencing problems.
