For those of you who have just started using QuickBooks Desktop, you may be wondering what this means to you, especially if you are using version 19 or earlier.

Why QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise May Be Your Best Move

We recently published a post on our blog about why you should consider moving to QuickBooks Online or Online Advanced. If you read that article, you may be wondering why we mentioned upgrading to QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise in some cases. We mentioned QuickBooks Enterprise because, in some cases, Enterprise will still be your best solution based on your business needs. We realize in that article, much is not discussed in detail about knowing when Enterprise is right for you. So, we produced this article to help you determine why QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise may be your best move after all.

The name “Enterprise,” and what buyers typically think it implies, thwarts some decision-makers. Many business owners believe QuickBooks Enterprise is strictly for enterprises, and many of its abundant and powerful features are too robust and in excess of their current needs. Enterprise was actually designed for growing Small-to-Midsized Businesses (SMB) to help them grow to the Enterprise level. While your current needs at the time of purchase may seem to demand less than what is offered in Enterprise, it is often not the case for businesses experiencing growth whose needs will rapidly evolve and grow. We have spoken with many clients who have properly gauged their current needs but fail to properly fit their solution to their growth needs, and then come to us to be right-fitted for their growth needs.

The cost of a wrong-fit solution is significant so it’s very important to ensure your new solution is right-fitted properly. Thus, it is also very important to focus on your growth goals and go into decision-making with a “what we WILL need” mentality. Lastly, remember that some features that may seem excessive to you now can also be leveraged for their significant economic efficiencies, such as streamlined advanced workflows and the Pick, Pack, and Ship sales fulfillment process. This article will discuss the features of QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise, how those features can be leveraged for economic efficiencies, and why QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise may be your best move after all!

QuickBooks Support: Choose a QuickBooks Solution Provider!

Every QuickBooks user has experienced a situation where support is required to identify a solution for a technical issue or have a question answered. When this happens, the initial courses of action that typically come to QuickBooks users’ minds are 1) requesting support in-product, or 2) calling 1-800-4INTUIT (1-800-446-8848). And, let’s face it, Intuit Technical Support is more than adequate to meet the needs of users who are experiencing technical difficulties or need questions answered. However, when users’ requirements are more complex and necessitate help from highly skilled professionals with industry accounting experience, where do users go for support?

When your QuickBooks needs are too complex for Intuit to take on, such as requesting a custom-built report, conducting an optimization analyses of critical workflows, or inquiring about QuickBooks training, you may feel like there is nowhere to turn. There is much ambiguity around what your best next steps might be, which doesn’t help the situation. Well, we’re here to tell you that there are a few different options available for these users, and we highly recommend one of those options: Contact an official Intuit QuickBooks Solution Provider (QSP).

In this article, the few options you have available to you will be analyzed and the pros and cons of each option will be outlined, followed by an explanation of our recommendation. It’s important to know that there are solutions out there, and with the right resources: if you can dream it, you can achieve it!
