At Wheeler & Egger, CPAs, we believe that QuickBooks® is the number one choice for small business accounting software. Our firm has worked with or installed many different accounting software products. At the same time we have also witnessed the expansion of the QuickBooks® family of products from Intuit. This experience and expertise has led us to believe that the following three factors are the most significant reasons for choosing QuickBooks® for your small business accounting needs:
1. Easy to use yet powerful: QuickBooks®, once set up properly, is an extremely user-friendly package to use. QuickBooks® knows that many small business owners are experts in their field, but not in accounting. This is why the program is written with many tasks completed in the background as you enter your primary transactions into their easy to understand templates. They also have many helps and tips built right into the package. No matter if you are an expert bookkeeper or a novice, QuickBooks® makes your record keeping simple by doing many tasks for you behind the scenes.
2. Flexibility: QuickBooks® excels in their ability to organize and report your financial information in accordance with today's established accounting standards and methods. By organizing your data as it is entered, QuickBooks® does the work for you, providing you more time to work on your business. All QuickBooks® documents and reports can also be easily customized in order to meet your businesses tracking needs. Plus, reports can be exported to other software packages such as Microsoft Excel for even further ease of use.
3. Software Integration: Intuit knows that when it comes to running a business there are often times when it becomes necessary for the data kept in QuickBooks® to be shared with other software applications. This is why Intuit has spent so much of their finances and energy in providing you with software integration options. Additionally, QuickBooks® has created many new products with your specialty in mind. Some of these include:
Is QuickBooks® right for all small businesses?
No, of course not. While the many positive attributes of QuickBooks® makes it attractive and practical for many small businesses, there are still situations where QuickBooks® is not the right fit. As a certified public accountancy firm and as QuickBooks® ProAdvisors we are trained to know when QuickBooks® is your best choice and when it is not. This is why we offer other solutions to your accounting needs in addition to the Intuit family of products.
