Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Premier

Managed all financial transactions, except payroll, but including inventory, for a small manufacturer with multiple, global distribution channels. We used QuickBooks Premier Manufacturing edition from 2007 through November 2013, before upgrading to the Enterprise edition.
  • Although there are reporting limitations, producing basic reports from QuickBooks is very simple and fast.
  • Fairly easy to use and to learn for entering basic transactions.
  • Integrates with many software offerings (CRM, Bill.com, etc.).
  • File stability suffers with increased size and complexity of data file. Best for very small companies with limited inventory.
  • Add-ons (such as payroll or credit card processing) would be convenient, but are over-priced compared to outside offerings.
  • Limitation: Works well only as an accounting system. Does not work well as a CRM, ERP, asset manager, supply chain manager, etc.
  • None: There are several choices in accounting systems at this price point. We chose a popular one with online support and integration options.
We needed more robust inventory tracking and the ability to integrate with other software, so we switched from MYOB Premier to QuickBooks Premier Manufacturing Edition in 2007.
QuickBooks Premier Manufacturing Edition is suited to a small company with a few, non-complex products. It is not appropriate for a manufacturer with BOMS containing more than 100 items or multi-nested assemblies. It is probably not the best choice for a company with more than 500 transactions per month.
