    "Extremely poor effort by Intuit again"

    December 18, 2013  |   By 99Joseph99

    Version: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2005 15.0f2560

    Pros

    Looks pretty (big deal!)

    Cons

    Wow, where to start. Navigation is terrible. Program is not at all intuitive. Reports have become a joke. The Intuit developers seem to have the attitude "If it ain't broke, break it"

    Summary

    Seriously reconsider before buying this programs

    "Its stunning they charge money for this"

    November 16, 2012  |   By thisiswhatkensays

    Version: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2005 14.0f9962

    Pros

    • There is a special place in Hell for the developers of this software

    Cons

    • There isn't a competitor that can come in and put them out of business in 3 months

    Summary

    Quite possibly the worst product ever to have graced a Mac.
    Quicken is like AT&T of the 1970s: 'We're the phone company. We don't care, because we don't have to"

    At the end of 2011 we upgraded to the latest version of the software. Within days of doing that our file became corrupted. We spent HOURS on the phone with support who were polite, but clueless on what to do. We were charged $40 to have our file 'fixed' only to have it corrupt again days later. Every time something went wrong we went through the song & dance with their support staff who were hell-bent on getting us to sign up for a support plan. We finally switched to their on-line software and, I can say without fear of contradiction, its a piece of crap.

    You would be better off with a ledger book and ink pen.

    "The Worst Customer Service To Ever Deal With"

    July 16, 2012  |   By topwebguy

    Version: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2005 R4

    Pros

    Nice ads about 24 hour support and ads numerous nice features to handle bills and bill pay.

    Cons

    Bills being paid from wrong accounts. Customer service is not existent. If you call out of regular business hours (notice their false advertising about 24 hr service) they will tell you you will need to call in regular business hours. When you call during regular business hours they will tell you there is nothing that can be done about your issue.

    If you want your bill paid on time and from the correct checking account, avoid the services of this company.

    I see somebody else listed the contact details for the CEO of the company. Good luck getting in touch with anybody there!

    Summary

    Writing manually your checks for your bills is a much better and reliable choice that using this service.

    "POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!"

    March 7, 2012  |   By reubL

    Version: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2005 R4

    Pros

    Decent Production Online - Purchased the Mac version 2012 and terrible customer service. Would not recommend if you care about support and service at all!
    Current Intuit Products I own or services I use:
    Intuit Quickbooks Online - 2 accounts @ $39.95/month (over a year and previous accounts in past years as well)
    Intuit Efile services x 3 @ $39.95/year
    Quickbooks for Mac 2012 @ $183.96 (you can get it cheaper on Amazon at $138 and you don't have to deal with their terrible customer service)
    Intuit Mac support free for one month and $19.95/month thereafter. I'm canceling my free month as a 35 minute hold actually costs me more then the value of the free month!!!!

    Cons

    I have been a loyal Quickbooks Online customer for my businesses for a few years. Just dealing with their support teams for Mac has convinced me that Quickbooks and Intuit does not care about their customers or their experience. They sell you on their pro support plan at $19.95 a month but the first time I called that line I was put on hold for 35 minutes only to have the supervisor on the call unable to help. They arranged a call back for the next day with customer support which I received later then promised and the customer support rep who called me said she couldn't help me either. YES, they called to tell me they couldn't help. Another rep confirmed they only have support teams in India and Philippines on all of their outward facing numbers. No support from the US! The same Indian rep who told me that finally gave me the number and email for customer issues and I contacted the Office of the President. That office said I had to wait up to 2 days for top tier support! 2 Days?

    Summary

    Overall I like their products for my businesses but I can't stomach a company that cares so little about their customer's experience.

    Contact info I was given for the Office of the President (the only US contact info I could find)
    Intuit - Office of the President
    President: Brad Smith
    (520) 901-3280
    oop_tuscon@intuit.com
    wecare@intuit.com

    Good luck if you decide to still deal with Intuit. I'm trying my best to find other options.

    "Got a coupon: 20% off"

    January 21, 2011  |   By rurjur

    Version: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2005 12.0f4172

    Pros

    I've been a Quicken user for more than 3 years, so I had few problems setting up ,

    And i got a 20%off at www.software.com/QuickBooks-for-Mac-9292-1. Thumbs up!

    Cons

    In general, 2011 seems identical to 2007. I don't need the newer features.

    "RE-********-DICULOUS"

    January 14, 2011  |   By goodmanRoss

    Version: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2005 12.0f4172

    Pros

    i liked nothing about this product

    Cons

    Read below. This is a rant

    Summary

    not intuitive at all and doesn't let you make a single mistake without spending the next 5 minutes telling you that you cant undo it without first undoing what you actually want it to keep. so if you want a program that will keep a PERFECT RECORD OF EVERY MISTAKE YOU MAKE. then this is the program for you. way to go quickbooks. you could not SUCK any more than you do now. you are the microsoft of invoicing software. "lets just hope that our customers can work around all of the crappy features we have incorporated into our software instead of making it better and easier to use". WAY TO GO QUICK BOOKS!!!!!! YOUR AWFUL!!!!!!! :)

    "Bugs, bugs and more bugs"

    January 4, 2011  |   By roberto30

    Version: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2005 12.0f4172

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Bugs, bugs and more bugs.

    Summary

    I can't believe that a company this big decides to stop developing this product, then they come back with what is supposed to be a product designed from the square one and they produce this thing. It's hard to believe how many bugs does it has and how incredible slow it is... I truly hope someone is working on this thing.

    "Every yearly update is nothing to write home about"

    May 8, 2010  |   By miagreek

    Version: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2005 11.0f2827

    Pros

    Best thing is ability to see all the bills due, when they're due and pay accordingly. If you have to pay portions of a bill, it is really easy--the "pay bills" list continues to show how much is left to pay.

    Cons

    Yearly upgrades generally don't deliver much "value": few new features for the yearly upgrade cost. Almost no free instruction on how to use the product (but lots for a fee)

    "Ignoring Mac Users for Years"

    March 31, 2010  |   By timbloom

    Version: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2005 11.0f2766

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I've been selling/supporting Macs for over a decade now and I've fought with Intuit for years to try to get even one simple issue resolved. Never has happened. After all these years they STILL cant work with the same data that Quickbooks on Windows can. I made the mistake of starting my new agency with Quickbooks for Mac. It has severe limitations and is horribly overpriced for something that's not really that complex. I made the move to Quickbooks online for $35/mo. DON'T. I would love if somebody could recommend a better business accounting program that can actually save and import data that anybody can use. Intuit is greedy and obsessed with vendor lock-in. DON'T purchase.
