Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions

We have a few organizations we have worked with that have chosen QuickBooks Enterprise as their accounting software. Our role is to assist with the implementation and/or provide accounting support to these clients.
  • Very scalable - both in data file size and user access
  • Better user controls
  • Enterprise is just a bigger QuickBooks Pro. It is no match for more sophisticated programs like Intacct or other accounting systems aimed at the mid-market.
  • The user security is sorely lacking. Not enough customization of controls. For example, in order for a person to have access to bank feeds, they have to be given access to the entire administrative side of the program.
  • Most of the clients I have experienced who have Enterprise feel they would have been as happy with Premier.
Enterprise seems to me to be losing its relavance. The company does not seem to be interested in enhancing the product and is focusing more on their online offerings and platforms. Compared to other software available, I would be hard pressed to choose Enterprise.
For most of my clients I have not found the cost of QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions to weigh with its benefits.
