What is QuickBooks Online?

The QuickBooks Online solution puts small businesses in complete control of their accounting and provides free online support, from setup to support. No additional software is required as all accounts are viewed via the online login portal, with custom feeds and charts, custom invoice creation, customer 'Pay Now' button, mobile website allows photographic references and all with auto-synchronization.

QuickBooks Online automatically syncs a complete business finance profile to one single dashboard where multiple users can view in-depth reports and accounts of company finances. The platform creates trade, profit and loss sheets as well as billing and invoice solutions that are all mobile compatible and print friendly. Users can create their own custom reports and feeds from within the dashboard so businesses only see what matters the most to them.

By navigating through the QuickBooks Online dashboard users can track payments, sales history, invoice details, add users and edit permissions. QuickBooks Online is completely integrated with QuickBooks Online Payroll and Intuit GoPayment.

The freedom that QBO provides you is amazing. I recently moved to BC from Ontario and was able to keep my job because our firm uses QBO. If we had been on desktop for our clients, I would't have been able to keep my job and would have had to find work elsewhere. My boss is about to work remotely from her cottage for the month of August because she CAN! How many people do you know can say that?

Overall, the software should be and is quite capable, however, it seems the staff need more resources/training to troubleshoot issues and the pay period settings need to be more customizable.

Quickbooks Online is Robust Software

Overall, QBO is wonderful software for bookkeepers, accountants, and small business owners. It is arguably the most powerful and robust software on the market, and is priced fairly well. Its integrations with other pieces of software and/or websites that small business owners use is second-to-none, and I am glad Intuit continues to work on that area. I would only say that support's knowledge of their own product is incredibly limited in my experience, and they need to stick by their pricing instead of releasing a few new features every year that have marginal actual use and claiming they need to raise prices because of them.

Buyer Beware

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Software Advice

The online version is a decent product but I am sure there are other online accounting software packages that provide the same or much more. Dealing with the online accountant customer service department is a total waste of time. Their management team seems to be concerned with their numbers more than customer appreciation. Terrrrrible! My advice: "Buyer beware!"

QuickBooks online has its weaknesses and bugs. However, after my research I think it's the best option out there for now.
