QuickBooks Pro gives you the ability to create a central data repository, containing all customer contact and transactional data. This allows you to easily track and follow up on past-due accounts and answer all customer requests more efficiently. Using QuickBooks Merchant Services you can even accept customer credit card payments directly right in QuickBooks.
QuickBooks Pro allows you to easily create invoices and track receivables. Using the data that has already been entered in QuickBooks (i.e. customer contact info & products/services) to create invoices in a snap. Invoices can be created from over 100 pre-designed templates; you can even customize invoices to show your company logo and tag line.
The General ledger will allow you to stay on top of your business. It will provide you with a consolidated view of who owes you money, who you owe money to, important reminders, and income/expense performance.
QuickBooks Pro uses the transactional history established in the general ledger to provide you with over 100+ pre-designed reports. Each report is adjustable, allowing you to gain useful insight into your business. Within each report you can click on any number to see the details behind it. Any report in the system can be exported to Microsoft Excel.
Using recent spending history, the system will allow you to create a working budget automatically. The budgeted amounts are then fully adjustable either individually or across line items. This allows you to later refer back to the budget to see how your actual spending compares to your original budget.
QuickBooks Pro gives you the ability to easily track your inventory. This will allow you to avoid overbuying and backorders. The system will allow you to setup reorder points that will automatically alert you as to when you should reorder a product.
The payroll application will allow you to easily manage your staff. The system will allow you to quickly process payroll with appropriate tax deductions. The software is capable of paying employees by direct deposit as well. You can have the system automatically populate and print 1099s for independent contractors.

QuickBooks Pro gives you the ability to quickly create purchase orders for your purchases. All you need to do is select the appropriate vendor from a list of vendors and select an inventory item to order. Upon receiving the inventory, QuickBooks recognizes the products and matches it to the appropriate PO. Meaning when you enter inventory items, the correct corresponding PO is automatically reconciled.
The QuickBooks Time Tracking functionality allows you to properly track your employees’ time to avoid under-billing your customers. The system will alert you when creating an invoice if there are any outstanding time or expenses for that customer. Easily bring over both item descriptions and notes to invoices, so customers can clearly see what you are billing them for.
The system allows you to track time by employee, service, and customer. This is done by using timesheets. If you are creating an invoice, QuickBooks automatically alerts you to any unbilled time and expenses.
With a subscription to Time Tracker for QuickBooks Pro, you will give your staff the ability to enter their time in a easier and more efficient manner. The Time Tracker allows you to enter and record billable and non-billable hours into QuickBooks remotely. This will ensure accurate invoicing, payroll and reporting. Your employees or sub-contractors will only need an Internet connection to enter their timesheets directly into QuickBooks.
Reviews of QuickBooks Pro Write a Review
The product is fairly easy to use and online access is a plus. I enjoy the peace of mind knowing that everything is backed up in real time, at no additional cost.
The good: The Online version of QuickBooks pro is a lot of “business” features that I realized we relied on so much with the Desktop version.
The bad: quickibooks pro 2017 feature
I have used quickbooks pro for the past 20 years and have loved it till a few days ago. This product is great for a small business. However if you have a problem you will be waiting on hold for at least 2 hours. I started to use the payroll about 10 months ago as I have always paid out to my employees as sub contractors, after using this product for payroll and deciding did not want it they told they were going to shut down my quickbooks and that I would not be able to use quickbooks pro whatsoever. All I wanted to do was stop the payroll monthly fee as I was not going to be using it anymore. This is terrible. I am running 4 different companies with Quickbooks and now I am shopping for another product other then Quickbooks. Up until yesterday I loved the product and have recommended to all of our business associates. I have on multiple occasions trained people how to use the product but will highly now recommend looking for something other then Quickbooks
The good: I really liked everything about it till yesterday
The bad: Customer service. Having someone that speaks well. Finding out that if I want to stop a certain service that I cant and they will shut my Quickbooks down
