5 Reasons Why QuickBooks is the Smart Choice for Small Businesses

  1. QuickBooks is the #1 rated small business accounting software and the ideal business accounting software for small to mid-sized businesses.
  2. QuickBooks is very affordable; it is capable of running a $50 thousand or a $25 million business for an investment of just a few hundred dollars.
  3. QuickBooks is customizable, flexible, and adaptable to a wide range of small businesses. Recently, QuickBooks added accounting packages specifically designed for Contractors, Retailers, Health Care Professionals, and Non-Profit organizations.
  4. QuickBooks supports data sharing with more than 100 business applications, including import and export functionality with popular Microsoft Excel, Word, Outlook and ACT, which saves time and promotes accuracy.
  5. QuickBooks facilitates faster turnaround time on customer receivables. E-mail an invoice via QuickBooks Online Billing and your customer can easily and promptly pay with a credit card or bank account transfer.
