Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

The software is less buggy and runs more seamlessly, but there are hardly any latest features, and there's still not a single integration, though it is easy to understand and manage, that's why I like it. Entering and sending payroll is a piece of cake. Fairly good functionality.
When it comes to customer support it was quite frustrating to wait for a representative to help me. It took me over 20 minutes, but the good thing was my issue resolved.

If you're a freelancer or running a very small business where you do your own bookkeeping I think this is a great option, especially if you're familiar with accounting and bookkeeping in general. If you're not so familiar with bookkeeping, I would say that the learning curve is too steep and you might want to look elsewhere for a more intuitive solution.

I like how it integrates your credit card statement into the software as well as your companies banking information. You set this up one time, and the feed then becomes automatic. Additionally, the importing of both checking and your preferred corporate credit card is a nice feature. Once you have updated the charge one time for a recurring fee, the following month, the software will automatically apply the same description. This saves a lot of time in updating.

I would highly recommend QuickBooks to smaller businesses with less than 5 or so entities. It is not appropriate for medium to large-sized businesses with a lot of daily transactions and multiple entities.

There is no better solution on the market when it comes to running a business. You have to track your sales, receivables, and P&L on a daily basis to make sure you are on track for your target profit levels. Also, QB is a great way to see the value of sales reps by the revenue they bring in.

Quickbooks Desktop is very well suited for small business owners on the run who need to be able to access their QuickBooks at any time across multiple devices while handling their own invoicing, billing, and payroll on their own. You can have it on a desktop when you are in one place, or mobile when you need it.

It is extremely well suited for smaller companies who are trying to manage things on their own without outsourcing too much. The program is easy to learn and doesn't require too much training time before it can be implemented. The online/cloud feature makes it even more accessible to our employees, so it's great. It would be hard for a large company to use it since it is geared towards smaller companies and the interface may become overwhelming with too many inputs/bills to manage.

QuickBooks excels at managing accounting data, especially for use in tax preparation, exportation, and importation into TurboTax. It is almost like having another accountant in the office! One area where it is not quite as useful is when multiple users across a company are trying to access it. This process becomes difficult and clunky.

Again I think that it is more user-friendly than some of the other platforms I have used. But I think it does a great job with the tracking of expenses and other activity, but also the integration with TurboTax and other applications. Also, for small businesses, the merchant services work very well.

Quickbooks for Mac can do most anything a good accounting software can do. It does bill paying, invoicing, income tracking, expense tracking, can customize income and expense categories, enter vendor information and customer information, do payroll, cut checks, and generate reports for reconciling accounts.

Some firms like mine may not be able to take advantage of the vast arrays of features it has.

As far as accounting software goes, QuickBooks Mac is a fresh pick from the Apple orchard. Like any good apple, QuickBooks Mac is clean, attractive, tasty, and nutritious. QuickBooks Mac is easy to use and feature-rich. In this one program, the capability of QuickBooks Pro is married seamlessly to the beautifully simple UI design of QuickBooks Online.

I have been on QB for approximately 5 months and so far it has allowed me to accomplish everything that my previous accounting program did and most of the tasks are more streamlined and easier to accomplish.

If you start from day one using QB in your business it should be great. If you are going to transition from another accounting program to QB I would expect to experience some pain in the transition.

For startup companies that don't need detailed accounting software, I would not recommend QuickBooks for Mac because the cost is not worth it compared to some free software options. However, if you are a small company and have some complexity that you want to automate (like recurring invoices), Quickbooks for Mac is an excellent option and is well worth the money!
