Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Online

I own a small CPA firm. I have one employee, a bookkeeper. We both use the product. For my firm, the product addresses the problem of collaborating with non-accountant clients.
  • QuickBooks Online allows the client and accountant to collaborate without passing files back and forth.
  • One of the best features is the ability to link the bank accounts and credit card accounts to the file. No manual downloading is necessary.
  • The payroll feature is very easy to use. The product gives payroll reminders and payroll tax reminders. The reminders are sent to both the client and the accountant.
  • QuickBooks Online has room for improvement in the inventory area.
  • QuickBooks Online is very expensive. Some of my clients choose to stay with the Desktop version due to the expense of moving to online.
  • QuickBooks Online could have more custom features for the estimates and invoices. The formats are somewhat limited.
  • Better customer service.
  • Efficiency in sharing data.
  • Secure file exchange.
Ability to easily collaborate with clients. Quality of software for accounting and reporting.
QuickBooks Online is well suited for most small business applications, especially where there is no in-house accountant.
