Quickbooks keeping you on top!!

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Overall, I’m very pleased using desktop version of QuickBooks for our families electrical company versus using the online version for a side real estate business that I manage .

Pros:

I love the increased features that QuickBooks desktop has versus the online software version specifically the ability to integrate business bank accounts and I love the ability to back up all files onto a computer instead of online where it’s backed up to a cloud and is at risk for it to be corrupted or lost at any time

Cons:

Thing I like least about QuickBooks desktop is all the steps you have to go to in order to open and close the program so that your files always stay up-to-date. I feel like they should implement or create a easier start up and close out function.

QB Review

3.0 4 weeks ago New

Pros:

After you make your invoice template it's simple. that first part can be challenging i like that you can customize your reports to fit your needs

Cons:

the customer service is almost nonexistent and when you run a report for a certain day, when you come in the next morning and do a deposit, it's stuck on the date you ran the report for the previous day.

Pros:

I liked the fact that quick books is easy to use which in turn made my work easier by not only reducing the work load but also reducing the amount of hours spent to tasks given to me.
