Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Desktop for Mac

I use QuickBooks Desktop for Mac as my primary first-line service to account for all incomes and expenditures. We recently took over the frontline job of accounting from our CPA. I am a new user to QuickBooks Desktop for Mac. The desktop version for Mac is the software that I use daily to keep current with income and expenses from deposits, credit card transactions, and all outgoing expenses.
  • All encompassing financial tool
  • Online Tutorials and YouTube self help videos
  • Strong online repository for seeking answers to basic questions
  • Total Cost for Ownership
  • The user interface is not as intuitive as the PC version of the software.
  • QuickBooks Desktop for Mac was very late in publishing the new edition of software
  • For the money spent this has saved us approximately 40% from what we were paying an outsourced CPA firm.
  • Everything is now at my fingertips and I can quickly drill down on questions about expenses and income.
We looked at several different providers. I tested three other software applications. I found that QuickBooks Desktop for Mac was the most intuitive, cost-effective, and out of the box to learn and use. I am still getting used to the differences between the PC version and the Mac version. This will take some time as the layout is different.
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.
