Simply brilliant

Have been using Xero for a year now, after switching from MYOB. So easy, I no longer need to outsource bookkeeping services - and I am emphatically not an accounting adept.

QuickBooks Online: Great Accounting Operating System for SMB Industry Apps

QuickBooks Online has made incredible strides in the past several versions--2 of the most important advantages of choosing QBO over other cloud-based accounting options is the growing availability of apps available for QuickBooks Online and how easy it is to send to your accountant--the accountant tools (that your consultant or ProAdvisor has access to are top of the line) . If you are a new start-up, small business, or desktop user of QuickBooks Pro or Premier, QBO is likely the best option that you have for accounting needs Don't forget to demo and test the apps..

NOT Friendly for service contractors who office out in the field!

So many issues, I don't know where to start. First off, creating quotes was just added, but only to the desktop version.
