About QuickBooks Online

QuickBooks Online is a cloud-based accounting solution that helps small businesses manage their accounting, income, expenses, payroll, and more. No additional software is required as all accounts are viewed via the online login portal, with custom feeds and charts, custom invoice creation, 'Pay Now' buttons, and mobile websites, and all with auto-synchronization. The native mobile apps for Android and iOS facilitate on-the-go sales receipt capture, expense tracking, cash flow management, account balance tracking, time tracking, transaction review, purchase order management, client communications, and more.

QuickBooks Online automatically syncs a complete business finance profile to one single dashboard where multiple users can view in-depth reports and accounts of company finances. The platform creates trade, profit, and loss sheets as well as billing and invoice solutions that are all mobile compatible and print-friendly. Users can create their own custom reports and feeds from within the dashboard so businesses only see what matters the most to them.

By navigating through the QuickBooks Online dashboard users can track payments, sales history, and invoice details, add users, and edit permissions. QuickBooks Online is completely integrated with QuickBooks Online Payroll, as well as third-party apps such as PayPal, Shopify, Salesforce, Square POS, and more.

    I Love the Access I have with Quickbooks Online

    As I already said, I love the direct access to my numbers and the added reporting that has allowed me to better run my company by quickly getting insights I need. It's a lot easier for customers to pay online and I'm finding more and more of the moving that direction vs. sending in checks, so it's good that we are set up in this way now.

    Pros

    I started using desktop Quickbooks back in 2000 right after I first started the company. As a single-person company at first, I got used to being in the books almost every day. As we grew we added an in-house Bookkeeper. A few years ago I relocated the company to a different area and we kept our Bookkeeper who stayed in the original area. I really missed having direct access to the numbers so last year I switch to Quickbooks Online and I love it. In addition to having direct access to the numbers I need, it has a lot of other functionality and reporting that I really like. It's also great for clients to easily pay the invoices online. It's making a night and day difference. Support has been great as well.

    Cons

    It's definitely very expensive to be paying a pretty high fee every month - especially compared to the desktop version where we bought it and were good for years to come. It's definitely worth it but I'd be more of an evangelist if the pricing was a little easier on the pocket book.

    Terrible migration

    Terrible. All of the updates force you to change and re-customize everything over and over.

    Pros

    QB online easily connects processes to limit the interaction between invoicing.

    Cons

    Migration. Going from QB Desktop Enterprise we were told this was the "New" and "Better" QB. But after we put all of our chips in for the migration for Online, we and our QB Advisor realized how limited QB online is and how all of our process and customizations are extremely limited.
    It is also very hard to get reporting on individual products. It used to be so easy and simple on the desktop. This was not a "learning curve" this was re-learning how to run your entire business.

    Honestly, the desktop is 1000 times better than online QuickBooks because without your permission they’ll do an update and change your QuickBooks and not do anything to help you change it back. Do not go with QuickBooks if you can use anybody else please use them. QuickBooks is a money, hungry company.

    Pros

    Nothing now the online sucks and quickbook sucks.

    Cons

    That you do an update and mess with people QuickBooks without permission and then give me some bogus crap line only people with the higher QuickBooks can change their look, but not essential. Another way for a Multi million dollar company to steal money from the hard-working people.

    Incredibly easy to use as long as you don't need the helpdesk. Let's us do everything from timekeeping, to payroll, invoicing, taxes, expenses and reporting.

    Pros

    Price and ease of use. Quickbooks includes all the things we need to run our small business and costs less than what others cost just for payroll.

    Cons

    The helpdesk is completely useless. I've spent at least 100 hours in the last year to get issues resolved that end up not getting fixed, I fix it myself, or I knew what needed fixing and it took forever to get somebody to do it.
