QuickBooks Desktop Pro is top-notch accounting software. It allows for a good bit of customization and drilling down on the reports. I've not had to use their support as our accountant and his IT staff are certified with Intuit. A little over one year ago, I started cloud-based with RAS (Remote Access Service). Now, I am not required to back up my data as before, which is great!

We are hoping another product comes out soon or gets reinvented so as to become a threat to Intuit. Perhaps they will adjust pricing back to normal levels, and not force upgrades when everyone knows they're not really necessary except as a cash cow to the developer.

We tried switching from QuickBooks Desktop Pro to QuickBooks Online, but there were a lot of issues and bugs so we ultimately decided to stay with Desktop Pro. Unfortunately, we are losing a lot of Online Banking capabilities on 5/31 as we have an older version of QB, but we plan to stick with Desktop Pro. In terms of invoicing, SaaSOptics beats QuickBooks in almost all aspects as it's all automated and takes seconds to create and send invoices. However, SaaSOptics is not really a full ERP program so it wouldn't serve us as a main bookkeeping software like QB.

Zoho had great end-user support and it was almost as simple to learn and was as easy to use. But its reports were not as [customizable] as QuickBooks Desktop Pro, and its job cost and department accounting [were] more cumbersome than QuickBooks Desktop Pro was. In addition, while I like an underdog (Zoho) the fact is that it is easier to find staff that [is] comfortable with QuickBooks Desktop Pro than anything else on the market.

MIP Fund Accounting has better reporting but is lesser used than QuickBooks. The reporting is not as clear when using QuickBooks for example it does not have a drill-down that is available with MIP Fund Accounting from Sage. We purchased QuickBooks Desktop Pro because we have used it for many years and it fulfills our needs.

QuickBooks Desktop Pro is inferior to Sage Intacct and Oracle because reports are not easily customizable, the interface is too cumbersome and the fields are not intuitive enough. QuickBooks Desktop Pro is only superior to Wave Accounting in terms of functionality; however, on a dollar for dollar basis, Wave is better[.]

Quickbooks Desktop Pro is much easier and user-friendly to use compared to our previous software, Microsoft Dynamics CRM. It has better tracking tools as well as [accounting] once. It does not glitch and it stores everything in one place. It makes things easier and more efficient which in terms saves us time and money.

QuickBooks Desktop Pro is by far the superior accounting software. Integrations are exceptional, with proper training the software is easy to use and handles all the business aspects you will need. Other software has difficulty keeping up with memory demands when your company begins to grow so QuickBooks Desktop Pro will always meet your needs.

We have not evaluated anything else in any recent time frame as we're so embedded with QB now that it'd be a logistical nightmare to move our operational financing to another platform. They've got us by the hook line and sinker! We have used apps for receipt scanning and mile tracking for consultants. We still have not plugged in our Project Management software to help assist with sub-consultants' billable hours, although we hope to do that this year.

QuickBooks Desktop Pro is a great option if you just want to pay a one-time fee and are okay that the software does not have any updates included. QuickBooks Desktop Pro provides an affordable way to manage your accounting for your business no matter the size of the business. It can be a multi million dollar company or a brand new company just starting out. QuickBooks Desktop Pro is very easy to use and get set up.

QuickBooks Online is a great cloud-based accounting software that is easy to use and accessible from anywhere. QuickBooks Desktop Pro is a fantastic option for users who are stationary and rely on using the same computers on a weekly basis. For those on the go who may need to create and send invoices from a phone, iPad, etc., QuickBooks Online would be a better solution.

MS Dynamics has the Microsoft name behind it and everything that entails. It is a modular software system that has amazing support, and many software experts who can tailor make software solutions for any company. Yet this has a cost, and many companies don't necessarily need this kind of investment to satisfy their accounting needs. For a quick, reliable and relatively inexpensive software solution that can be bought and implemented almost immediately....QuickBooks Desktop Pro is hard to beat.

We tried out Zoho Books because we use Zoho for CRM purposes and we were were interested in exploring what type of integration there might be with our CRM to our financial books. However, we just found out that nothing really competes with QuickBooks when it comes to bookkeeping. One of the biggest differentiators was finding people who had experience with Zoho Books versus QuickBooks. So many people have experience with QuickBooks; we found very few who had experience with Zoho Books.

FreshBooks I believe is a better service-industry and solo-business tool, however for businesses that are mainly retail-based and are smaller than 100 employees, I would use QuickBooks. However, I would not recommend Desktop Pro to anyone who trusts the cloud. For the skeptics, it is perfect. I selected QuickBooks Desktop Pro because it does perfectly fit the niche of users who want all their data in one place, under their roof.
