Quickbooks is used for our company taxes. We have an accounting firm do our taxes, but we use Quickbooks to supply and document the income and payments made throughout the year. Quickbooks is the standard software used by the firm and it simplifies our year end tax preparation as the software allows for easy transition to their system. It also saves time and thus cost.

We use QuickBooks as a full accounting package, for everything from billing to A/P to A/R. QuickBooks does it all. QuickBooks has great functionality to manage your collections. It's simple and easy to use. Reports are comprehensive and easy to formulate. Data can easily be exported to Excel.

In our organization QuickBooks is used in Finance Department only, since it's an accounting software. It is the only accounting solution we need and it solves all the accounting tasks, including reporting.

We use QuickBooks to track our sales. It is our everyday and digital document place for the entire company. We use it to pay bills, commissions, track banking etc. It helps keep track of our everyday operations and sales.

I am the only user of QuickBooks Desktop Pro in our organization. It is used to pay invoices for three separate entities within our organization. I had not used QuickBooks Desktop Pro prior to working at my current place of employment. However, QuickBooks Desktop Pro was pretty easy to learn. It makes paying invoices so simple!

QuickBooks Pro is being used for our entire organization's accounting. It is being used by the finance & administrative departments to generate the accounting for the company. The software generates P&Ls, balance sheets, costs per project, AP, AR, AR aging, AP aging, etc. The software is the foundation for all our financial and accounting information.

Within my own company we use it to generate invoices (in conjunction with our industry-specific CRM), receive payments, log payments and expenses into different accounts, and generate reports necessary for our accountant, and different financial requirements. We also periodically generate statements for clients. Using a third-party plug-in from our credit card processor, we accept credit cards and can receive payments directly into QuickBooks Desktop Pro. We also use it to download and import bank statements into various account ledgers There are probably other things too, but those are the basics.

QuickBooks Desktop Pro is being used by a nonprofit 501c6 as well as a PAC. It is sufficient for an organization that does not have many entities and less than $10 MM in my opinion. It has some limited reporting functions and to use it best, we use a third party software that easily imports/exports Excel data to/from QuickBooks. It is affordable, but customer service is abysmal. For the small business that does not want to spend a lot of money on accounting software, this is probably your best bet, as you can find answers in many online QB forums, but if you are anything complicated, I would look elsewhere.

We use QuickBooks Desktop Pro to manage our financial side of [the] business. We pay bills, employees, and manage our inventory as well. It is easy to make quick reports to see where we are at with projections and make projections where we have been [...] in the past. We run all of our product[s] coming in the door and out through QuickBooks Desktop Pro. It gives us a birds-eye view of our financial situation.

We use QuickBooks Desktop Pro as our main bookkeeping software for our small cash-based business. We do not create and send many invoices out of QuickBooks Desktop Pro as we have automated that through another program, but QuickBooks Desktop Pro is our main financial record for all transactions.

QuickBooks Desktop Pro is used by three employees - the bookkeeper, the controller, and the CEO, to do all the accounting at the company. It handles payroll, accounts payable including half a dozen employee credit cards, accounts payable, accounts receivable, and cost accounting for our DoD and NIH contracts (which need to be DCAA [compliant]).

Dearborn YMCA uses QuickBooks Desktop Pro for [its] accounting purposes. It is used to process deposits, payroll, and run financial reports. The majority of the work is completed by few users and the reporting function is easy enough that department managers can run reports on demand. The users are secure with strong passwords.

The product is currently being used by our accounting department. It handles our billing, invoices, payroll and tracks our financial data. We have more than a few people using it and it does a great job providing everything we need easy to use. It is a great tool for every company.

QuickBooks Desktop Pro is the main accounting software used for the business. This software is not used by any other department, the functionality is not very helpful otherwise. One issue is the need for the software to be run on [a] PC. In the past, we needed to log into a remote desktop from a MAC to process and enter information which was bothersome due to the frequency of the need to login in.

Quickbooks Desktop Pro is used by our organization in conjunction with the online version. We invoice, run our GL and P&L reports from it. Currently it's not synced to our PM software for billable hours, but that's coming soon. It is a relatively easy way to track our general expenses, issue invoices and get our reporting in a nutshell.

Within the nonprofit organization I currently manage, it is used systemwide. I've also used it with a real estate and land development company where there were multiple LLCs under the umbrella. QuickBooks Desktop Pro was the software of choice.

For the nonprofit sector, it provides an affordable way to handle grant management and various projects. For the real estate company, it could be so granular to track from land acquisition to end-customer sales.

I always recommend and instruct my bookkeeping clients to start with Quickbooks Desktop Pro. This program does EVERYTHING. They can take credit card payments, with very competitive fee rates. It does payroll for any amount of employees. It simplifies the sales tax collection process, it records inventory, vendors, customers, etc. This is a VERY user-friendly program as well and makes it very easy to get the user involved in their books.
