Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

We use it as our Base Accounting Application for Internal & External Financial reporting, Accounts Payable for posting and paying bills, General Ledger use for journal entry posting, and Accounts Receivable & Collections for tracking the age of invoices and posting of payments.
  • Aging of outstanding bills & invoices
  • Financial reporting by class
  • Financial Reporting: We cannot produce one report that shows both monthly and year-to-date results
  • Voiding of a check in a closed period
  • Positive as it affords good tools for evaluating results
  • Positive as it affords budget tracking
We are so happy with the functionality and use of QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise that we have not evaluated any application for change.
QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise allows for the use of all Accounting modules, which is convenient & efficient. The reporting is very good (for the most part), and the processing of transactions is easy to manage. This application is well suited for large and small businesses in the service area especially; however, I believe that manufacturers and companies with inventory can use this with a strong degree of accuracy.

Using QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

5 - Accounting, AR & Collections, Accounts Payable, Customer Invoicing. We utilize the application for all Accounting & financial reporting matters. It is a robust application with tremendous capacity for reporting.
1 - The CFO is the program administrator. He sets up new users, runs periodic utilities, coordinates software updates, deletes users, and manages the ongoing needs.
  • Accounting
  • Accounts Payable
  • Reporting by Class
  • Customer Sales Reporting
  • Enhanced Reporting
  • online Bill Pay
We are very satisfied with the software. It addresses all of many needs.

Evaluating QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise and Competitors

Yes - We upgraded from QuickBooks Pro Version. Prior to QuickBooks Pro, we used another application, SBT.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Prior Experience with the Product
  • Existing Relationship with the Vendor
The product features were probably the single most important factor in our decision. The software addresses all our needs, and it offers us other features that we can use in the future.
I would not change anything that we did with the evaluation and selection process.

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise Implementation

Nothing noted
  • Third-party professional services
We used a QuickBooks Advisor along with an outside IT group to do the implementation for us
Change management was minimal
  • Interaction and coordination between QuickBooks Advisor and IT Group
  • Nothing noted here

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise Support

The support for the basic needs of the program and addressing basic issues is good. However, we have been disappointed with the support for our reporting questions.
No - The QuickBooks technical support is the one area where we have been disappointed. Most of our questions and issues involve reporting, and we have not seen much help in this area.
