Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions

As an accounting/bookkeeping firm I support QuickBooks Enterprise as one of the products my clients use. Depending on the needs of the client I may recommend QB Enterprise when a desktop user is looking to upgrade. QB Enterprise is best suited for companies that have larger data files, need more robust inventory features, work on a network, and desire more specific customization, just to name a few of the key important aspects it can provide.
  • Robust Inventory features
  • Large data files
  • Combined consolidated reports
  • More detailed customization
  • Optimized to work on a network
  • Allows multiple users, up to 30
  • Importing and exporting large lists (chart of accounts, items, customers, vendors).
  • Bank reconciliations could be more intuitive.
  • Upgrade the interface to a more modern look/feel. Something inviting.
  • My knowledge and experience with QB Enterprise is another tool in my toolbox. It expands my ability to serve a broader range of clients.
  • Since I have more experience with QB Enterprise my memory is looking for the robust features that QBE offers when I am working with the lesser Pro or Premier versions of QuickBooks.
I actually use or offer support to all of the QuickBooks versions. It depends on my client's need as to which product I will recommend.
As for QB Enterprise, I choose this product for my clients who need robust inventory, may have more than one company and want to combine reporting. This is typically a larger company that needs many users and most likely will also have a large data file or require a product with fewer restrictions.
QB Enterprise is well suited for companies with large inventory lists. Not only to create necessary detail for inventory items but also for the capacity, number of inventory items. QB Enterprise is also best used by companies that have large data files, large name lists (customers, vendors, products & service items, classes).QB Enterprise is overkill for many small businesses that have little or no inventory, lower level of bank transactions, and no real need to customize reports, data, etc.
