Diamond Package Savings Breakdown
QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise Platinum
- Diamond Package Enterprise Platinum – starts at $268.00 per month, indefinitely (includes our 20% discount, only if you purchase from Out of the Box Technology).
- Traditional Desktop Enterprise Platinum – starts at $180.00 per month for 12 months (includes Intuit’s 10% discount), then $200.00 per month.
- Diamond Package Enterprise Platinum Cost Difference – Your cost only increases by $88.00 per month for 12 months, then only $68.00 per month after. This increase in cost will easily be offset, and more, by your product-bundling savings.
Something to Keep in Mind – User Licenses can be very costly, especially for those who require more than 10 users. All Enterprise Platinum plan rates vary by user license count. Traditional Desktop Enterprise Platinum plans charge for user licenses in increments of 1, up to 10 users. After 10 users, you must purchase a 30-user package. This increases your monthly subscription cost to $519.00 per month for 12 months (includes Intuit’s 10% discount), then $865.00 per month. Your price increases to that of a 30-user subscription, for all user counts between 11 and 30.
However, with the Diamond Package’s Enterprise Platinum, you may have up to 40 user licenses (an optional 10-user increase from 30). Most importantly, you may purchase licenses in increments of 1, up to 10 users, then pay a flat rate fee for a 20-user license, a 30-user license, or a 40-user license. This means if you require more than 10 users, but less than 20 users, then you have the option of only paying for 20 users. Because this is much less costly than having to pay for a mandatory 30-user license with traditional Desktop Enterprise Platinum plans, you will save extra money on a Diamond subscription.

- Diamond Package Salesforce CRM Connector Savings – You will save approximately $650.00 per month.

- Diamond Package QuickBooks Payments Account – No monthly base fee for access to the lowest tier of processing rates, with additional processing rate discounts only available to those who purchase from Out of the Box Technology!

Who Was QuickBooks Enterprise Diamond Made For?
QuickBooks Diamond is a bundle of software and services that includes a Desktop Enterprise Platinum monthly subscription. Diamond was created to enhance the user experience of growing businesses in industries that can optimize ROI by using the Enterprise platform. These industries include:
- Construction and Contractors
- Manufacturing and Wholesale
- Professional Services (most businesses fall into this category)
- Retail and eCommerce
Why These Industries?
Construction and Contractors
Construction companies and contractors can use Enterprise Diamond to organize job costs by vendor and quickly identify outstanding bills. The use of premium features such as creating job estimates and tracking change orders allows for tighter project financial controls. Do that and more with the ability to analyze profitability on a task level with customizable job cost reporting.
Manufacturing and Wholesale
Manufacturing and Wholesale businesses will have all the tools they need to keep their inventory management and sales fulfillment on track. They can run their business accurately and efficiently from the warehouse to their customer’s doorstep.
Non-profits can create year-end donation statements to track contributions from their biggest donors. They can quickly identify their expenses and easily create Form 990 for the IRS.
Professional Services (most businesses fall into this category)
Professions can track unbilled time and expenses by employee, project, client, or service. Invoices can be sent in quickly – it only takes seconds! Professionals can pay and get paid the right amount automatically by presetting various billing rates.
Retail and eCommerce
Businesses can track their sales accurately with the Sales Summary Form. They can master their inventories and set customized reorder points so it never runs low. With Advanced Reporting capabilities, they can easily compare one month’s P&L against another month’s.
Tested & Proved by Our Clients!
In July of 2021, Out of the Box Technology came to the rescue for a client who was paying too much for a less-suitable solution.
Our client is a growing land surveying company, with several successful subsidiaries operating underneath their umbrella. They were originally paying for QuickBooks Gold with a seven-user license, and had three Assisted Payroll products (one for each entity), and were using QuickBooks Time.
After a consultation with one of our expert ProAdvisor consultants, we discovered the following:
- Our client had purchased these products separately from Intuit, so they were paying a la carte prices. This meant that they were paying higher rates for not bundling products and services and they were not receiving our discounts.
- There was a need for a more robust inventory management system, but they were not using the Advanced Inventory feature included in Enterprise Platinum.
- Our client was paying for multiple Assisted Payroll products because they needed one for the parent company and one for each child company (the traditional Assisted Payroll product is only setup to allow one EIN per payroll account).
After reviewing our findings with our client, we told them what we could do for them:
- Sell them a bundle of the products they were already using (minus the upgrade from Enterprise Gold to Platinum) into the Enterprise Diamond Package, with our discounts applied, to reduce their costs.
- Bundling the products themselves into the Enterprise Diamond Package reduced their costs, and our discounts reduced costs ever further!
- Gained them access to Advanced Inventory features included in Enterprise Platinum, which helped them reduce inventory costs.
- Cancelled the uneccessary Assisted Payroll accounts (the Diamond Package Assisted Payroll product is setup to allow up to three EIN’s per payroll account).
The End Result:
Ultimately, our client decided to make the switch to the Diamond Package. Our client highly valued the Diamond Package’s cost savings, as well as its ease of use. To them, the switch to the Diamond Package was a no-brainer!
Today, our client is saving in excess of $800.00 per month compared to what they were paying previously. Additionally, they are overjoyed with the new features included in the Diamond Package, and they have enjoyed a revitalized trend in increasing ROI.
