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.

    Overall, though I love the ease and the benefits that I get from the program and I wouldn’t trade it to go back down to paper and pen to manage this company

    Pros

    The fact that it gives me all the benefits and features of a regular business management software program while not having to pay or have the computer space to have the entire QuickBooks program I love the fact that I can also log on computers because I only need a And There all my files are backed up on it

    Cons

    I hate the fact that I’m at Jeopardy to Have all my files erased or compromised

    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.

    Fast and easy to switch over from desktop QB and then easy to use once you log in and begin wik

    Pros

    User friendly and works great. Do not normally have any issues when using and even if there are, usually easy to fix and continue working afterwards.

    Cons

    Took a while to get everyone in the company onboard with using something new but once we did, it has worked good. Sometimes there are little hiccups, which can be distracting but all in all, easy to use once you get the hang

    So Glad We Switched

    Reviewed on 30/04/2024

    Pros

    Ease of use. Everything works the way you would expect it to. Almost everything that I wish existed in Quickbooks Desktop actually exists in Quickbooks Online. It was easy to set up, use and the UI makes it easy to accurately record financial transactions.

    Cons

    Reports and class tracking don't work exactly the same way as desktop. They're much harder to track. Also data entry tasks with keyboard entry aren't as fluid. It's a lot more point-and-click.
