  • Helps with On-the-go business

    Quickbooks Online offers a well-designed, frequently updated app. I use it on my iPhone6 and I've never had bugs or problems. The app is particularly useful if I need to check something while out and about, such as a customer account balance or a vendor's address.

    Pros : Easy to use, good mobile interface

    Cons : More robust accounting work (like journal entries) do not seem to be available in the mobile app (I haven't been able to find them, at least).

    Quickbooks Online - is great for a small business

    I purchased this, as, I was using an older Mac version of this software. I decided I should just check out the online version and I was hooked. I found a coupon for the first 6 months and continued on after. I love this. I gave it an overall 4 star due to the fact, that the desktop link/app has a hard time communicating with the online site and takes forever to access and I consistently have to keep logging in.....even though the "checked" box, is checked. I love this and won't go back!

    Pros : very streamlined very simple with the buttons and quicklinks love the option of time period, for how your year is doing love the quick reports.

    Cons : the desktop app/link is consistently spinning and I'm waiting to "sign in" even though the box is checked that I want to stay signed in.

    Easy time entry and classification

    I use QuickBooks online to enter my time, classify my time, and run reports. It's user-friendly and we've never had any bugs or other issues. I cannot speak to the value of the app because I'm not sure what we pay for it.

    Pros : Easy entry, easy classification, easy to run reports. No bugs.

    Cons : A huge con is that when you're viewing your list of clients or projects to bill to, you can only see the first couple of words. We have very long project authors so this is super annoying. Other than this, I've never had any issues.

  • "QuickBooks Online Review by Seattle Public Accounting, PLLC"

    QuickBooks Online Use Cases and Deployment ScopeI own a small CPA firm. I have one employee, a bookkeeper. We both use the product. For my firm, the product addresses the problem of collaborating with non-accountant clients.

    Pros : QuickBooks Online allows the client and accountant to collaborate without passing files back and forth.One of the best features is the ability to link the bank accounts and credit card accounts to the file. No manual downloading is necessary.The payroll feature is very easy to use. The product gives payroll reminders and payroll tax reminders. The reminders are sent to both the client and the accountant.

    Cons : QuickBooks Online has room for improvement in the inventory area.QuickBooks Online is very expensive. Some of my clients choose to stay with the Desktop version due to the expense of moving to online.QuickBooks Online could have more custom features for the estimates and invoices. The formats are somewhat limited.

    Quickbooks Online - Good and Bad

    QuickBooks Online Use Cases and Deployment ScopeWe utilize QuickBooks Online in our accounting services area which is dedicated to our small and medium size business clients.  It allows us to access our clients books in real-time and make adjustments to their accounting entries.  We are able to keep more staff in the office while still providing a high level of client care. 

    Pros : Allows for adjustments to be made while multiple people are accessing the systemAllows us to produce real-time snapshot reports of the financial positions of our clients

    Cons : The biggest concern / issue is QuickBooks Online could be better at leaving a "footprint" of who made what entries or adjustments.

  • For years, QuickBooks has been the default “go-to” software for small business accounting. It didn’t get that position by chance; the software offers a lot of useful features, and the online version strikes a good balance between ease of use for non-accountants and good accounting practices for those with a background in bookkeeping. There’s no question that this is solid software.

  • This accounting software includes everything you need to increase efficiencies, streamline business processes and satisfy reporting requirements. Using QuickBooks 2015, you can invoice and bill clients, track customers, manage employees, and track inventory. With a few add-ons, such as direct deposit and payroll processing, it can perform all business tasks easily, freeing your energy up to do other things, like visiting clients and growing your company.

  • QuickBooks Online Self-Employed is an intersting application with a very specific type of user in mind. If you’re a sole proprietor or small business owner who doesn’t have to file a separate set of tax forms for your business, and you commingle your personal and business income in the same checking and credit accounts, QuickBooks Online Self-Employed will help you make the most you can without having to pay more than you should to the IRS.

  • QuickBooks Online Simple Start provides essential small business accounting tools while leaving out more advanced features that are usually unnecessary. You will find a good set of features for most new and many existing small businesses in this online accounting software without being overwhelmed by unneeded modules.

    I'm giving QuickBooks Online Simple Start 4.5 stars only for very small businesses. It is not adequate for most other businesses. You will find a good set of features for most new and many existing small businesses in this online accounting software without being overwhelmed by unneeded modules.

  • Do not waste your time!

    What do you like best?

    Access to the file in the cloud. I do remote bookkeeping for several clients and its nice that I can access their Quickbooks file from anywhere. But that's it! Nothing else about this works for me.

    It's clear that you designed this program to woo business owners who really don't know anything about maintaining their own books. All the pretty colors and graphs on the home page are great, but completely useless.

    What do you dislike?

    Where do I start...just the fact that you designed the look and functionality to be COMPLETELY different than the desktop version was ridiculous. But I can look past that. My clients have their transactions entered automatically. So something as simple as scrolling through a check register - I spend time looking at a spinning wheel more than I ever thought. You only show the last 13 transactions, and I have to click on 'prev' to see a spinning wheel then the next previous 13 transactions, on and on. Ugh. Once you figure out where you go to get something, you can eventually make things work, but nothing is where it makes sense.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Buy the desktop version.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Can work remotely more. No benefits.

    I am beyond angry at this point

    What do you like best?

    Well, like most business owners (in my case a small CPA firm and divorce mediation practice), I wanted to gravitate towards the online version so that I could have the convenience of cloud access from anywhere. And that is a great feature - at least when the website is actually functioning. Honestly, online access is really the ONLY thing I like about this product.

    What do you dislike?

    40 characters minimum, but what's the max for this field? Where to even start? I have paid for and tried to use this product for almost 2 years now. I am closing in on 30 years in the CPA field, so I know a thing or two about accounting software and running small businesses. None of this is rash for me. But ultimately, the interfaces and labeling of the tasks and procedures is just absolutely embarrassingly bad. Things like writing a check or (God forbid) making a deposit are things that will take you an hour to figure out in the beginning. I thought, initially, that they would get the message in the early going and start to rebuild it in a more user friendly layout. That has not happened and if anything I think it may be worse now. Then there's the quirky, unexplainable things...... like how for a month or more I will load a check into my printer right side up and it will print correctly. And then suddenly it will revert and all my checks print upside down until I train...

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Nothing has been solved and tremendous time has been wasted. I am talking literally dozens and dozens of man-hours lost on an accounting platform that had worked perfectly great for me for over 20 years, I consider myself to be an expert at the use of QB accounting software. QB Online is NOT QB accounting software and buyer beware. It is a dramatically inferior product. Nothing has been solved and no benefits were realized despite a great deal of money spent.
