Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Online

Use QBO as our primary bookkeeping and accounting software. Integrated with our bank account and company credit cards. Our CPA's are also have accountant access so it's a seamless way to do our quarterly reporting and annual reporting with tax filings. We primarily use it for Chart of Account, Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss. We do NOT use AP or AR or other transactional functionality.
  • Simplicity of use.
  • Completely oriented towards accounting, well designed.
  • Intuitive to use.
  • Great help functions.
  • Slow performance.
  • Hard to navigate between modules.
  • QBO allowed us to integrate with our CPA quickly, absolute must to keep in compliance with tax laws.
  • Having our books organized in QBO is critical for commercial bank loan officers if you need financing.
  • We are able to manage bookkeeping and accounting needs with no staff dedicated to that function - those are tangible cost savings.
Pipedrive, Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)
It is well suited for all businesses for the core accounting needs. It is deeply rooted in accounting principles so any business can keep their books and corporate financials organized and properly recorded, regardless of size. Obviously there are complexities in each industry and QBO may not be able to handle all the upstream needs of a specific industry but as a system of financial record, it is excellent. I would advise smaller companies and sole proprietorships to consider if QBO is too much for them despite its simplicity of use. It takes commitment to set up QBO properly and consistently use it.
