Pros Not too bad to enter your accounting data
Cons 2009 not compatible with 2008, so if you buy it, your accountant has to upgrade as well.
Summary Do not buy the 2009 version if your accountant is using the 2008 version. You will not be able to transfer your files.
Pros NONE - Intuit took a working program (QuickBooks 2006) and took away all the functions of the online banking!
Cons The Online Banking is the most INEPT part of the program. Intuit is on R7 which means they have failed eight time to get it corrected. DO NOT BUY THIS PROGRAM IF YOU USE ONLINE BANKING!!!!
Summary THIS VERSION OF QUCIKBOOKS MAKES MICROSOFT's Me LOOK FULLY DEVELOPED IN BETA! Our Sm Business could recon a AMEX account in less than 30 minutes with 2006. We now spend over 4 hour with 2009.
Pros The software is able to keep an accurate running balance for a checking account.
Cons I have used Quickbooks since 2004 for small business and Non-profit accounting. It has been continually frustrating. The Inuit customer service seems more interested in selling more services than assisting the customer.
Summary Having upgraded from QB2004 to 2007 and now to 2009, it is remarkable how the software seems to grow more restrictive. You can no longer cut a paycheck without subscribing to a payroll service. The upgrade process is cumbersome and needs to be carefully debugged of accounting errors. Trying to port to QB for the MAC 2009 is hopeless. You need to monitor your entry dates for deposits and checks carefully since the program randomly changes the date during the process.
Pros Not too hard to use but you have to redo everything when your subscription is up.
Cons - MUST renew every few years
- must redo all your templates
- on version R14 (they couldn't get it right the first 13 times)
- Each download of R#, it'll wipe out your data since last R# revision (back up!)
- service and support sucks!
Summary As you have heard with all users of all versions. They make your software SHUT DOWN if you do not renew every few (2-3 years). There are better programs! There is better support and customer service. Pay a few bucks more today on the competition and you can get better for longer.
Pros Can't think of anything off hand!
Cons This has got to be the worst upgrade I've used. When I balance the checkbook I find that QB has lost some of my checks (payroll) how did that happen???? Me and a million want to know.
Summary LIKE I SAID, RUN RUN RUN DON'T WALK AWAY AND NO ONE WILL GET BURNED.I am looking for another program and it will NOT be anything that is created by intuit!!!
