Cons
  • This company is using deceptive information to add a company, but it only states for 2017, 2018 & 2019. So by not stating 2020 they feel you should infer that it is no longer available.MICHAEL H.Read the full review
  • Quickbooks can sometimes be a little maddening but we don't have any major complaints about QuickBooks Payroll.Brian T.Read the full review
  • Instability in the sense that it can crash if exposed to viruses and other external applications; it also lacks compatibility with other external systems; it allows for limited number of users.Patrick T. K.Read the full review

Software does the job, and it is very affordable.

Pros
The software is cheap! low cost and functions well, until it does'nt then you need tech support. The tech support is responsive and helpful and as always time consuming

Cons
No Flexibility and advertises on your computer. Something is very strange to me about getting advertisements on my accounting software. Sorta like who owns what? Guess the software companies are begginging to own us. So much for personal in PC personal Computers.

Quickbooks Enterprise version 20

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-01-30
Review Source: Capterra

The software is great for small businesses (less than $20M) and has basic accounting functionalities: AP, AR, GL. The cost is not expensive but neither cheap. It's in the normal price range, however, it comes with limitations regarding the user un-friendly the system it is.

Pros
Price is, of course, a key factor to have Quickbooks Enterprise as an accounting solution. The interface is not perfect but workable.

Cons
Here are some of the limitations: 1. The software sometimes crashes when an invoice or receipt is opened 2. It doesn't offer a download/upload capability that facilitates the use, for those who want to download or upload data from it. To run this step, it needs 3rd party software. 3. Customer support takes time to get on the phone. Sometimes, they cannot offer a solution. 4. The merchant product is very flawed. If the company has more than one AR account, the merchant doesn't apply the payment. It needs to be entered manually.

very user friendly, easy to use software. price is affordable. it is a cheaper than a hiring an accountant. I could manage with he basic knowledge of accounting.

Cons
basic version has limitations which can be overcome by paying more and upgrading. if it was equipped with bill scanning and bar-code reading it would be better. an droid support would have a great addition.

Not as much robust flexibility as some other more expensive software. Wish the price was cheaper. Currently I'm not using it (although I did for many years) because I can't afford to purchase the Premium version.

Pros
I use the app on my phone. I love how it puts all expenses in a category with just a swipe. It is so much easier to keep track of all my business expenses.

It gets the job done at an economical price.

Pros
The system is easy to use and pick up if you have never used it before. It gets the job done, but would be great if it offered more for HR professionals. For finance and accounting purposes, I think it's great for the price.

Cons
I wish there was more functionality in the employee center. From an HR standpoint, it could be stronger in the HRIS area. It would be great to have the option to filter between different employee categories besides just active, all, and released. The vacation/sick report doesn't show how much time has actually been used. This is not helpful for tracking usage of paid time off.

Hi Courtney. I would be glad to pass along your suggestions about the Payroll interface to the engineers, as they review customer feedback when working on new features to roll out.

Allows me to reconcile my personal expense with my bank accounts Makes it easier for my accountant to do my accounts and this is reflected in a lower quote from my accountant as they have far less admin to do

Pros
The UI is very nice. Easy to use once you become familiar with it. Price is very cheap for what you get

Cons
Some of the automation doesn't always work, like being able to read directly from your online bank statements. But I think this is hard to do as the banks are constantly changing their own security protocols
