Quickbooks and Quickbooks Online: Latest Updates

Customer Reviews of Quickbooks

I had Quickbooks Pro 2010 up and running in 10 minutes flat, including setting my husband up with an excel file he could use on his iMac and iPhone to enter his data. We're a two platform family. He's a musician who also does some recording, and he will not switch back and forth from Mac to PC.

I use both platforms for different things and have not found a good software accounting program that I like on the Mac. I was not sure when I decided to get this whether it would be worth the time to port excel files back and forth, but so far, it's easy and seamless.

I set up the excel columns to match the Quickbooks file, and everything comes right in so that I can map the expenses, write the invoices, and keep the data straight for taxes. The PC interface is sleek and intuitive, and the program runs very quickly. So far, I haven't had a crash or a glitch, but I'm not asking a whole lot of it.

My sole complaint is that there are a host of features within this program that are available only by subscription. It's not a big deal for me, because my needs are really simple, but if I were using this for anything more than a one-man show, I would feel a little frustrated that more services weren't included with the not-insubstantial price of the software.
