  • Importing files from other software and downloading from the bank.
  • Memorized transactions save a lot of time and training.
  • The Pay Bills feature is super helpful and saves a lot of time as well.
  • Being able to now have 2 companies open at the same time is super helpful.
  • Being able to export the whole database to the CPA firm again saves a lot of time and phone calls.
  • The ability to establish classes and track expenses for projects is awesome.
  • Wish we had the ability to track gallons. We are a truck stop and need to know how many gallons we buy and sell.
  • Matching up credits in Pay Bills can be challenging, especially if you make a mistake.
  • Wish in some of the reporting that it would automatically total some columns.
  • Downloading from the bank wish it would tell you the last time you downloaded and the dates you put in so you don't download the same information twice.

  • Batch entry
  • Bank imports
  • Ability to access and adjust all areas in the system as needed
  • Too many logins for security and validation
  • Batch prevailing wage reporting - all active jobs in a week in one pass instead of one job at a time.
  • Customer support access is a drag - the process is not as slick on this end as it may be for Intuit.

  • provides great reports
  • meets specific non-profit company needs
  • integrates with other third part software
  • I would like to see more ways to customize reports and have that process be more user friendly.
  • I would like to see the process of creating year end giving statements be made more user friendly. Since I only do it once a year, I have to figure the process out every year.

  • Relatively easy to use
  • Easy to set up new companies
  • QB is not oriented enough towards accountants
  • Sometimes challenging to perform accounting functions, e.g., review prior bank reconciliations, find journal entries, debits and credits are not self evident.

  • Detailed organization of financial information
  • Several security measures and double check systems to ensure incorrect entries aren't made. This prevents accidental errors and protects the company from fraud.
  • Ease of overall use
  • Reporting can be as detailed or as general as you prefer. Each report allows you to look at the overall picture or access specific details of each aspect of the company financials.
  • The system is not intuitive. Without training or guidance from another user familiar with the program, it can be difficult to navigate.
  • Remote access requires a third party.
  • Bank Feeds can be finicky when trying to load transactions. There are frequent connection issues and errors.
