Gets the job done but could be less clunky

2018-04-05

Pros

It's performant, does user management, roles, and reporting well and provides a solid foundation for a small business.

Cons

It could be more intuitive and take 'less clicks' to get a job done - pre-made reports for example, common tasks, or less than three screen to change something in a journal entry..

The ideal program to advance accounting

2018-04-20

Among the benefits that I obtained when using QuickBooks is the quick analysis of invoices and past transactions, the export to Excel format, allows to establish the memorized transactions for recurring billing, invoices and estimates, organization of documents by joining the clients with your invoices and files.

Pros

Quickbooks, allows you to save a lot of time, money and effort, while minimizing the chances of error in the tasks that have to do with this specific area.

Cons

This software is very complete, you do not need to be an IT expert to install or use it. There is not something that you really do not like.

Pros

Extensive bookkeeping and invoicing software

2018-06-06

Pros

I love that it is accessible online and that there's a wide variety of features that you can do such as: sending unlimited invoices, tracking expenses and revenues, pay bills, and transact in different currencies.

Cons

I'd say third party integrations should be improved -- sometimes, the system disconnects and I have to integrate it again, which is time consuming.

Essential for small business bookkeeping

2017-09-15

Overall, a really helpful part of our business's workflow.

Pros

Easy to see what financials are going in and out each month and to categorize them in the way most helpful to you. Reports are easy to run.

Cons

Linked credit cards will sometimes run wild and suddenly spawn charges from years ago that aren't especially helpful to your accounting. Definitely requires some supervision.

Good for small companies with limited transactions

2018-06-15

Pros

Linking to Bill.com and Expensify are also easy.

Cons

For companies that have multiple approval layers and AP invoices, you would need an add on app like Bill.com to handle.

Poor

2017-04-18

I love quickbooks however, Quickbooks for MAC has a LOT to be desired!

Pros

Quickbooks is a great product and it is easy to use. The report section is easily manipulated for whatever you may need a report on.

Cons

Their reports aren't consistent and what I mean by that is for example: I ran an aging AR summary and it listed invoices that are clearly paid; however, when I ran open invoices it didn't show on that report and that made my AR report over $ off.

Solid, but not without flaws

2016-04-05

It works similarly to Mint, and allows you to monitor your cashflow, forecast your monthly or yearly income, and generate some basic report.

Pros

- affordable - easy to use - secure

Cons

- lag or crashing on bulk edits - often misreads or misfiles transactions

Quickbooks for Mac is an ok system to use.

2018-05-04

Pros

Most things are accessible to you in the this program so it worked for some time.

Cons

The system crashes all the time for me and at one point I wasn't able to export or print any reports from this program. it is also a lot more slower so I had to go back to using it in Safari.

Hoping it will do all we need

2018-02-17

Pros

QuickBooks integrates with our bank account and also our client management database (Neon CRM).

Cons

Seems pricey for the monthly subscription option - I would prefer to be able to just purchase the software, but I wasn't sure if that version would be able to offer our organization everything it needs.

Quickbook for Mac different than PC version

2017-04-18

Pros

For someone running a mobile business, it's important to have that real-time information handy.

Cons

Features that are on the PC version and not on the Mac version. For instance, payroll is online for the Mac version and you don't see payroll paychecks as you can on PC. This is a very disappointing fact, since there is really no difference in platform that Intuit can't fix that

If you want a fully functioning cloud solution enabling most organisations to be catrered for, this must be your c hoice. Additionally, Intuit the owners are very big players in the world market so the software is much more likely to be here in the future than some of the smaller competitors.
