Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions

It can be used for tracking sales, inventory, expenses for a complex product and services organization. It is being accessed by the entire organization for key information. QBES is an excellent and powerfully capable version of QuickBooks that can be used to handle complex business needs. With extensions, it can handle complex pricing structures, multi-location, serial numbers, lot numbers and more. With extensions, such as Method CRM, you can enable your sales force to see a catalog with current stock status and place orders remotely into QBES. QBES and the Intuit eco-system creates a very effective solution for many complex distribution and manufacturing businesses. For more info contact: info@bocabookkeeping.com

  • QuickBooks ES is very affordable for the small and mid tier business. (Fraction of the cost of competitive offerings). Intuit and partners have created a true efficient and affordable solution for mid size complex processes and businesses.
  • QuickBooks ES can be enabled to provide anytime, anywhere, anydevice access to your business information needs.
  • QBES provides extensive capability out of the box. While QBES with advanced inventory permits tracking of serial numbers and lot numbers, it does not permit both. However, there are work arounds or apps to solve for this.

The team at Boca Bookkeeping has implemented many complex ERP mid tier solutions for medical distribution, assembly, and service processes. QuickBooks ES costs less, is easier to implement, and extends it functionality with third party apps to create a significant advantage for the business owner. QuickBooks has a huge install base and is continually identifying new and improved functions to improve the QBES platform.

Comparing timing, costs, function, and support, (Total Cost of Ownership) I have found QBES to win in most all situations.
QuickBooks ES is very well suited for distribution of large quantities of sku's and higher volume. QBES can be easily implemented in many configurations that fit key industries well, such as manufacturing and Wholesale, Contractors, Non Profit, Professional Services, and Retail. When complex manufacturing is involved, app's can be leveraged to extend the functionality and ability to meet very complex business needs. Method CRM extends the availability of QuickBooks ES to enable remote users to have access to QuickBooks information without directly logging in to QB.
