"Awesome, easy, puts my mind at ease it is done right"

November 07, 2009  |  By fisher72

 |  Version: QuickBooks Simple Start Free Edition 2009

Pros

Keeps records of payments, deposits, keeps me on track of my income verses expenses. Can set up several accounts: ex. petty cash, regular checking and savings acct. Keeps track of loans.

Cons

Explanations need to written in dumbie friendly terms instead of accounting terms. Some accounting terms are understandable but receive payment and sale payment is not easy to understand. Especially for what I do - child care

Summary

I've recommended this product to others because it has been a wonderful asset to my business. I've had very little accounting and this program made it easy to understand how to keep track of my business. The secret to this program is to constantly keep up on your entries and reconcile every month. The program will help make all this possible. This program will also help you find the errors and help fix the errors. I've only had to call for help one time and it was regarding a printing issue. The help I got was a wonderful experience. The help team explained in terms that were understandable, they were patient, and very willing to help.
The whole experience I've had with this program is positive. I've added payroll to my program which is the best expense I've done. It keeps track of taxes, when to pay them, how to do payroll, and keep track of all expenses for payroll.

"i love this product, it is Ease to use ,"

July 25, 2009  |  By Raj-bhuiyan

 |  Version: QuickBooks Simple Start Free Edition 2009

Pros

Ease of use. Does exactly what is needed for me and my business.

Cons

When a backup file is made, the program creates so many files.

Summary

If you are a home internet base business that only receives checks or wire transfers for payment, then this free software is for you. It also gives the option of accepting credit cards but I am not familiar with this function.

None that I can think of.

"Software with too many connections to other programs"

December 28, 2008  |  By cunningham-davis

 |  Version: QuickBooks Simple Start Free Edition 2009

Pros

It is obviously comprehensive for those people who want everything taken care of.

Cons

This product has so many add-on features that it slows the average user's computer to an unacceptable speed. Also I resent being told I need Google desktop. I was unhappy that the Simple Start took 2 hours to download.

Summary

Basically, I am underwhelmed. If this is QuickBooks Simple Start, then I hate to think what the Complicated Start might involve. I was so happy using Quicken for over 10 years and I think a 'simple' accounting program ought to be offered without all the "Bells & Whistles". Many of us don't need it and don't want it. Please bring out a really simple version, not all of us want a connection to anyone else.

"I use it every day."

December 04, 2008  |  By jandsm5321

 |  Version: QuickBooks Simple Start Free Edition 2009

Pros

It does what quickbooks does, and it's free. It's very useful to keep track of your books, much better than say... Excel or a pen! They did a pretty good job of keeping things easy to use.

Cons

I had to register online, it is very simplified (I have used Quickbooks Pro).

Summary

It does help to have taken an accounting class in college, otherwise it is a little hard to learn to use I think.
