Quickbooks Online has a lot of wonderful features that are super easy to use and deploy in the office. A lot of time is saved with repetitive tasks that eat up a already busy day.

But as you begin to actually understand accounting and your bookkeeping goes on and on you discover some very frightening things about Quickbooks.

We are also constrained by the # of fields within the payroll module--as far as the category in which the employee worked. We also lament the lack of integration with our bank, microsoft programs etc.

Cons

Horrible experience with poor customer support, poor documentation, false advertising, high fees, long payment delay. Bad platform for hourly billing.

The problem is that doing your own taxes online becomes risky the more you have to account for.

Other than tracking my expenditures, the whole system is a pain. Error messages constantly received because "there's a message from your bank" bla bla bla.

Sage 50cloud

Great product, but you have to know how to use it

Reviewed 3 years ago

I consult with small businesses and some of my clients use/used Sage 50. My Sage 50 clients work in services, merchandise (drop shipping), transportation, and manufacturing. Sage 50 is a great software, but from what I've seen it takes a while to learn.

Pros

I'm a CPA and small business consultant. I have worked with some clients that use/used Sage 50. Sage 50 has a lot of good accounting functionality and makes it possible to record transactions and review reports, which is what an accounting software should do.

Cons

My main complaint about Sage 50 is the lack of documentation/support. I've used and recommend QuickBooks frequently because QuickBooks has easy to access phone/chat/online support and there are tutorials all over the web. I wish Sage 50 had more support like QuickBooks.
