QuickBooks Online

2018-12-03

Pros

I like that more and more cloud-based products are coming out and this is one of them. So convenient!

Cons

I'm sure it would come out cheaper to pay outright for the full software, but the online version is good for me for now.

Desktop version made simple

2018-04-19

Pros

Online subscription for a month which I think is a little high but compared to buying outright for the desktop version, the online version is well worth the price.

Cons

One feature that is quite frustrating for me right now is the vendor part. When I enter a bill, it does not caption duplicate reference number (or the invoice number) There was a time where I paid a vendor twice because I entered a bill and another admin entered the same bill but QuickBooks didn't capture that double bill. Needs to be fixed

Easy to access "on-the-go."

2018-12-24

Pros

It can be opened on any computer or phone for a quick reference. It also can be tied to a bank account for transaction importing and up-to-date reconciling.

Cons

This is definitely more expensive of a route than buying the CD and downloading outright. They do offer promotions for initial set-up, but for a business with payroll processing, the price adds up.
