QuickBooks Review

2019-03-08

It's simple interface and helpful suggestions for transactions is great and the ease of month close with the platform has kept me from seeking alternatives.

Pros

Ease of use and integration with multiple expense/revenue apps.

Cons

Banking feed rules can be somewhat quirky, tried importing credit card feed and it would sometimes create duplicates that we had to manually remove.

Love this program. For the most part you need a little help to get started but easy from that point

2018-07-04

Billing, customer management, inventory management, financial status with great builtin reports and custom reports features.

Pros

Billing and invoicing.

Cons

Sync with banking. Although not always a quickbooks problem it is very frustrating. I have had numerous issues over the years with this solution. I have even resorted to just downloading a file or even bringing in the accountant at times.

Quickbooks review by Isaac Fungura

2020-01-20

I have also been able to extract customised reports such as trial balance, income statements, statement of financial position and statement of cashflows.

Pros

In terms of flexibility, you can attach receipts of your expenses that you incur on the go or, acquittals submitted by our field team to the finance office - these can easily be scanned and attached to the transaction for easy of audit trail/reference material.

Cons

System is sometimes unstable, especially when handling large amount of data with multiple users and multiple work stations/locations Excludes payroll function, which is an add on module at a cost Excludes project management feature, hence you have to get another software to run your project management I was also not able to link external excel sheets to automatically update the ledger and vice versa without importing or exporting data.

Outstanding administrative software

2018-04-04

Invoicing, Payroll management, Tax reports, and the regular accounting reports

Pros

The way it manages payroll and tax deductions is seamless, it has a very intuitive menu that helps the user understand the sales cycle, and on the invoicing side you can set it up to send the invoices directly from QB to the customer using you own e-mail platform address.

Cons

We have tried to create work orders in the system, for workflow follow up, but the functionality only works as a different kind of sales order, and does not have a way to change its status to see the progress of a manufacture order.

Hi Taylor,

Nothing makes us happier than hearing that our app is helping you stay on track financially. Managing a business is busy enough without the accounting aspect involved, which is why we're committed to making these daily tasks faster and easier for you. Our developers are always looking for ways to make this app into an even more versatile tool, so we appreciate you sharing your suggestion for automatic invoices. We forwarded this new feature idea to the proper team for review, as it could certainly be a time-saver. Many of the updates made to QuickBooks Self-Employed are based on our users' feedback, so we recommend keeping an eye on our blog for news on what's in store: https://intuit.me/2L2zqTv

Thanks for the rave review!

Good overall program

Time management with the snap in of Minute7.

Pros

Customized invoices is a nice feature.

Cons

Another example, if you need detailed reports by sales person, and fail to add that field to your invoices, you won't get a report even though you diligently added the sales person to each customer job.

Hi there, Chad. It's affirming to know QuickBooks has left a fantastic impression on you. I'm thrilled the functionality was streamlined enough to allow more time with your customers, as well.

I want to ensure you have the tools to continue flourishing, so I encourage you to check out the Resource Center when you get some downtime. This space is a central hub of insights on the business fundamentals. It'd be my pleasure to link you to an example of what you can find there, as it covers more tips on expanding your enterprise, whether you're still using the software or not: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/r/growing-your-business/the-top-5-waystogrow-your-small-business/.
