Quickbooks Supporter for Small Business
Overall Satisfaction with QuickBooks Premier
We use QuickBooks for most of our offsite client accounting. When a client wants to process in house, we recommend the QuickBooks Premier program. In house, we use QuickBooks Premier for our own company data. Monthly accounting in house for clients are done on Intuit EasyAcct for multiple general ledger and payroll processing.
The ease of use and understanding by all firm personnel make QuickBooks a preferred choice for clients.
- Ease of use and understanding. Drop down tabs for various functions. Reports tab, Employee tab for payroll processing, Banking tab for check writing or register, etc.
- Ability to make changes on the go without much difficulty.
- Can go back indefinitely for comparison reports, etc.
- Check voiding from previous periods. Should be able to tell the system what period to void the check in. This is a function available in Peachtree.
- When making changes to prior periods, a warning should popup to ask Are you sure? This could avoid random changes made by mistake.
- More explanation to the user as to the cash vs accrual function of the program.
- Mainly used for overall firm management and discussions between partners.
- Program ease of use and ability for detail reports improve response time.
EasyAcct is a multiple general ledger system developed for accounting firms.
Peachtree by Sage (Quantum) is similar to QuickBooks but not as user friendly.
QuickBooks is a market leader for small business both used by accounting firms and their clients.
