Into the Cloud: A QuickBooks for Mac Case Study

How one organization was able to successfully move from an older version of QuickBooks for Mac to QuickBooks Online

THE PROBLEM

Laura Studebaker, Bookkeeper for POWER

For POWER, a small non-profit organization that’s been helping parents since 1984, QuickBooks for Mac had been a great choice. They had been so happy with QuickBooks for Mac they hadn’t seen a reason to upgrade since 2009. But now the bookkeeper of many years was about to have a new baby, and keeping up with the books has already been challenging enough lately. In an effort to help the bookkeeper, POWER is looking for someone that can help assist with the books. The issue is that in-person training, oversight and management will not be an option with the baby coming. Plus the old computer, nicknamed “Gertrude”, was clearly not going to last much longer. The budgeting team had decided that she was to be replaced by less expensive hardware, and that means no more Mac.
