  • It is easy to manage and adjust inventory on hand.
  • It is easy to make reports and customize them to your needs.
  • We also use it to pay our employees directly.
  • It is easy to make year-to-year comparisons to see where we can make improvements and the current financial situation.
  • It would be nice if I could delete items from inventory that I no longer use instead of making them inactive. Stuff that is no longer manufactured as an example.

Quickbooks Pro

  • QuickBooks generates a P&L easily. This can be done in many different ways; company -wide, per client, etc.
  • QuickBooks generates a Balance Sheet easily.
  • QuickBooks also tracks AR and AP very well.
  • QuickBooks has room to improve on their cashflow report. We do not use the report in QuickBooks.
  • QuickBooks has room to improve the credit card entries. In order to match the entries to the credit card statement, you have to go in to manually input the entries and vendors. For example, if I pay ATT one month and the vendor charges my credit card as "ATT Houston," and the next month, they charge under "ATT Sugar Land," I would have to either manually attached both of these entries to ATT the vendor, or set up 2 new vendors as "ATT Houston" and "ATT Sugar Land."
  • QuickBooks has room to improve the way it integrates with other accounting systems. For example, if a subsidiary does not have QuickBooks Pro, you have to create a separate excel model to run a consolidation model.

  • Easy to use and learn
  • Flexible
  • Efficient
  • Cost accounting is somewhat cumbersome
  • Integration with 3rd party payroll could be more efficient
  • This is the desktop version, and our version does not handle touch screens or two-fingered touchpad very well

  • Intuitive and easy to use
  • reporting is robust
  • online version has made it even easier to invoice and manage AR
  • Still need someone with business /CPA acumen to set up properly or the functions /features don't match what your company does
  • not the easiest to integrate with enough third party solutions (but getting better with their APIs)
  • still don't fully trust Intuit after they - many years ago - intrusively intercepted completed invoices we mailed and turned them into client "accounts" for the clients to login and pay without our knowledge let alone our permission.
  • Doesn't scan receipts etc. easily in the app

  • Managing complex project accounting
  • Grant accounting and reporting
  • Payroll--especially with multi-project accounting
  • The limited number of simultaneous users--licenses can be cost prohibitive
  • Was too firewalled, requiring a VPN to use (may have been our IT)
  • Cost. Cost. Cost.
  • While they say nonprofit, it isn't really well designed (just branded) for nonprofits

  • QuickBooks Desktop Pro is user-friendly. It is easy to reverse the journey entry and fix the errors.
  • Accountants can fix errors without letting the manager review and approve. It will be better to have a function that the accountants have some restrictions for internal control purposes.

  • Easy to update and understand.
  • Makes tax reports, other government report[s], insurance submissions[,] and compliance accurate and mostly automatic.
  • Can download bank transactions with some automatic accounting info.
  • [Sometimes] automatic rules miss posts and hard to determine why.
  • When typing [an] account it will after a while start to default to the first account starting with that letter.
  • Help can be improved often can't find answers to problems or questions.

  • QuickBooks Desktop Pro interfaces with other software very well, especially Microsoft products.
  • It's relatively easy to learn and use, I've never encountered any bugs with it.
  • Quickbooks does have a "small business" connotation. I'm not a programmer, but it wouldn't be my first choice for a large scale accounting solution.
  • I've seen slicker user interfaces with other software, but to be honest that's not really a major factor when considering accounting software in my opinion.

  • Bill pay: easily input vendors and their bills, and then pay them whenever you are ready.
  • Tax prep: send 1099s to all independent contractors above the threshold with just a few clicks.
  • Budgeting: set up your budgets, and then track your actual revenue/expenses against the budget to see how your organization is performing.
  • Reporting: MANY different reports available to satisfy investors and accountants. Very customizable.
  • Updates: sometimes QuickBooks will inform me of an update for an earlier version than I'm running.
  • Duplicating bills: When I duplicate an existing bill, my preset term (ex 60 days) doesn't seem to copy over. I have to manually reset it.
  • Bring back QuickBooks bill pay! It was so nice to not have to print/sign/mail paper checks.

  • Keep your financial data all in one place.
  • Ability to generate all kinds of reports like P&Ls, Balance Sheets, and custom reports.
  • Bank Feed option struggles to always work with your linked bank account.
  • Data is not automatically backed up so you have the risk of losing your data.
