Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Desktop for Mac

It was being used by our organization for all accounting tasks such as month-end close, posting invoices, posting receivables, etc. It is the first accounting software we have used so it basically allows us to organize our transactions into profit and loss/balance sheets for all our entities. It has a lot of good short cuts to make posting transactions quicker.
  • A plethora of good short cuts.
  • Ease of posting journal entries.
  • The advanced search feature.
  • Managing multiple entities.
  • Freezing during long journal entries.
  • Inability to import journal entries.
  • Meant for smaller businesses, we outgrew QuickBooks.
  • The ROI was good for when we were a smaller company because it is a lot cheaper than other more sophisticated programs.
  • The negative impact is that it caused a lot of extra manual entering and data entry that too often resulted in mistakes.
We just switched to Sage Intacct over from QuickBooks because we outgrew it.
I would highly recommend QuickBooks to smaller businesses with less than 5 or so entities. It is not appropriate for medium to large-sized businesses with a lot of daily transactions and multiple entities.
