This year we have made getting around QuickBooks faster, without compromising the feature that you love using.
EASY TO USE FOR ALL OF YOUR ACCOUNTING NEEDS
What I like best about this software is that it is super easy to use, and you can see how your business is doing overall in just a few simple clicks. With highlighted alerts and reminders of updates and additions, there's always more to learn about this program. From billing to sales to P&L, this program does it all with very little effort!
Smooth upgrade from Older Verion
I had to update from Quick Books Pro 2010 after the last windows 10 update rendered it useless. That is a pain and another Intuit issue of not supporting legacy versions in order to get you to upgrade. That said, I ordered the CD rather than do the large download. Install went smoothly and painless. It then downloaded the update files and I was ready to go.Understand the issue with scratch off to see the serial number - it is no different than any scratch off - I had no issues and understand the security concerns that require them to do it. It also protects the customer. The password is not a big deal and they only recommend to change every 90 days. Again security in todays world. However, they should allow people to opt out if they want to - if they understand the risks.Overall, pleased with the new version 2017 !!
QuickBooks - Ease of Use
I have been a QuickBooks user for way over a decade. I enjoy the fact that, despite extremely limited business accounting knowledge, I have been able to maintain my two companies quite effortlessly and with a great deal of precision. My accountant easily uses my Quickbooks data and merely adds a couple transactions to complete the entries for my tax years.
Tried and True Accounting Software
Having used Quickbooks for many years I have always been very satisfied with the software and over the years it has only gotten better. The UI has changed enough so that it functions better and is more intuitive but not so much that it alienates those who have used previous versions. The integration of payroll and credit card payments is also a huge plus. As I said I've been using this software for my company for around ten years and I can't imagine having a software that works as well and allows me to get everything done. From invoicing to finance managing this meets all of my needs and then some.
Robust accounting software at your fingertips
Quickbooks Desktop is a robust tool with a relatively intuitive interface and dashboard. The help menus are helpful and essential to getting started and setting up the software for your companies needs. Additionally there are plenty of online resources for any array of questions you might have. It is reliable and an essential part of our day-to-day business.I would highly recommend QB desktop if you are looking to bundle all of your accounting needs into one tool, Not only can you track all your customers and vendors, pay all of your employees and contractors, you can even link the product to your bank for up to the minute recording of profits and losses. While you might want or need to get some training for initial set up for best use it will reap major rewards in the long run and you will not regret purchasing this secure, reliable, and robust software.
Great for Accounting for a Small Business
I think it is user friendly enough for a beginner to use, if you want to implement it without doing much training on it. Great product for keeping finances in order and tracking.
While you are managing your finances or to reconcile accounts, one may need to refer to multiple different forms and accounts. This can be simplified with the new multi monitor support. With this feature, users can view multiple windows of QuickBooks on multiple monitors.
In QuickBooks 2018 the search for accounts has been enhanced. Now it takes seconds to find a particular account rather than minutes. All you need to do is type in a partial name, full name or account number and there it is.
This feature highlights the fact that an invoice is past-due date. By customising this feature, your business will be able to improve its cash flow as it is automatically generated.
New shortcuts have been added to boost the productivity of users. Through these shortcuts, complete lines of transaction can be copied and pasted.
As your financial information is confidential, its security is essential. This has been an ongoing focus of the QuickBooks development team for a long time. With QuickBooks 2018, we have further secured email integration as well as Personally Identifiable Information, which has been further encrypted through the use of passwords.
Selecting the right basis for accounting can be difficult for some businesses. Accrual basis has been the choice of medium sized organisations whereas cash basis is preferred by small businesses. With QuickBooks 2018, you can switch between the two through the Reports window.
