It wasn't as good as I expected from Intuit.

2018-08-23

I have used Intuit's former product Quicken for years and love it.

Pros

Creates HST filings automatically. It's from Intuit so not a fly by night company. Nice to be able to create invoices from a mobile device. Can give access to accountants remotely. Can give limited access to other staff remotely.

Cons

It is NOT intuitive. Glitchy bank downloads. Has sat with errors between online and bank balances due to download problems.

Quickbooks Online is better than sliced bread.

2017-04-17

I printed my vendor 1099s but this was an additional fee.

Pros

QuickBooks Online is a great way to manage your business. I was using the PC version of Quickbook for many years. It is top notch but tied me to one computer. With the online product, myself, coworkers, and my accountant can access our financial data anywhere/anytime. No worrying about updates or backups. The interface is very intuitive. The software is very versatile and can be adapted for many industries. The pricing is not a bargain but it very reasonable for the services rendered.

Cons

I wish there was a Online Quicken for home users.

Recommendations to others considering QuickBooks Online

Be patient. Quickbooks will help you with whatever you need and keep learning. Also, use the help in order to get quick answers. I take notes and keep a file so if I need to do something again, it is readily available.

Still under review

2017-08-17

Customer service has been excellent. They bend over backwards to assist in any way they can online or by phone. It is pretty easy to get through to a real person to help you through whatever problem you might be having. They are still developing this product and take customer feedback seriously.

Pros

The ability to access it on any computer. It's much less expensive than the desktop version with multiple licenses.

Cons

After using Quicken for many years and some Quickbooks desktop this is different.

QuickBooks & QuickBooks Payroll Full

2017-08-17

Do not purchase unless you have the money to invest in only QuickBooks materials and pay big annual renewal fee's.

Pros

It was not to hard to set up and enter data. I would not recommend this product based on support and fee's charged.

Cons

I could not print checks or W-2's without purchasing them from Quicken direct.
