An Overview of QuickBooks

QuickBooks®  completely replaces overwhelming mounds of paperwork with an all-in-one solution.  And that was just in the beginning- 30 years ago.  Nowadays, Intuit® has outdone itself with its latest QuickBooks® bells and whistles.  Former QuickBooks® servers have been replaced with Linux servers.  The ease with which clients can e-mail and send QuickBooks® reports has been vastly improved with the integration of Microsoft Outlook into the software program’s functionality.  Microsoft Excel spreadsheets can also be easily imported into QuickBooks® and there is finally capacity for QuickBooks® to better track time and payroll, inventory, fund reconciliations and transfers while handling on-the-spot questions- and all can be done remotely with user-specific logins.  Additionally, the desktop QuickBooks® has adopted features from its web-based version such as the interactive Google Maps and other nifty Google marketing tools.

Quicken® – QuickBooks® for the Individual

The original intent of Quicken®, and we stress original, was to help individuals with their personal finances.   Scott Cook and Tom Proulx, Intuit® founders and subsequent genius innovators who came up with a product called “QuickBooks®”, believed (30 years ago) in a streamlined process whereby any QuickBooks ® user could:

  1. See every account in one place with one password– above and beyond personal or business credit cards – 20 or 30 years ago, this was a miracle.  And to make that miracle more of a realism, Quicken® categorizes expenses!  A Quicken® administrator will easily distinguish between a round of drinks for the work buddies and an elegant (not to mention financially reportable) meal to discuss business with existing or potential clients.

  2. Cashflow.  So,  ”Cash is King” so let’s make sure every “t” is crossed and ever “i” is dotted.  No business or person will maintain a likable image or sought-after reputation if there is no money.  It’s a harsh reality but a business will suffer without cash.  Alleviate these concerns: ensure investors and maintain peace of mind that you are on top of your game and in control of your cash flow by knowing the following:

    1. Who purchased those groceries on the company card?  Or who expensed them?  That does not look like food- it looks more like an entertainment activity.

    2. Budget, budget, budget.  Sure, starting the Quicken® process, if you are an individual or sole-proprietor , seems manageable but inherent in money making arer budgetary concerns and investor relations.  Your investors need that trust factor and the investor’s ability to trust your business mode is a must.  This will generally revolve around your cashflow so make sure you can back up your financials.  In sum, on a daily basis balance and manage accounts payable and receivable.

    3. This point is simple: pay your bills.  If you are unable to do this, contact a local financial advisor.  Individuals in the financial advisory profession are not the enemy, they are here to help and Scott M. Aber, CPA specialize  in financial planning but also has an unlimited network of colleagues that can identify and work with your particular circumstances.

Quicken® and its partners continue to thrive because they actually want to help people while being considerate of financial constraints.  Quicken® operates with integrity in what Scott M. Aber, CPA likes to call the “all in one place” principle.  Take a look at what you can see in just one look:

  • Investment/Retirement/Bank/Credit Card Statements

    • Your buy/sell/hold decisions will be well thought out…isn’t that okay?

    • You track your costs and benefits…what’s wrong with that?

    • Profit & loss- that can be a thorn in your side…Quicken® keeps you safe.

No matter what business or personal goals you have, it is a virtual reality that QuickBooks® will act on your behalf (after you provide some basic expenses) to manage your financial outlay and every aspect that comes hand in hand with cost and budgetary expectations.

QuickBooks® Enterprise Solutions

QuickBooks®was created on the premise that a consumer, investor or small business needed a comparable tool to Quicken®.  And, then Intuit® realized that the Quicken® product line could expand to small businesses, and even medium sized operations.  Intuit® is one smart organization as they realized that a nearly identical interface as that which was used for the original Quicken® and QuickBooks® would support QuickBooks® Enterprise Solutions.  The only difference was that QuickBooks® Enterprise Solutions had capacity to hold massive amounts of data; including client names, client customer identities and a plethora of other confidential information.  But that isn’t all- take a look:
