For another view - I sent this out to our finance people, and this is the response I received: "QuickBooks is industry standard, user friendly and interfaces with virtually everyone. It is inexpensive to own and to run. I personally wonder about any accountant who is not happy to use it. With a basic accounting knowledge it is quite easy to understand and use (although I realize MANY who use it do not fully understand how it works). Our accountant is an expert at it, so much so that he has an assistant who "modems in" to the businesses they service monthly to quickly and efficiently see that everything is in order and no one is screwing things up. "We have reviewed countless other systems and worked with over a dozen industry specific accounting programs (dentistry, sheet metal, car audio, and medical to name a few), that DO NOT follow standard accounting formats and truly are mysterious in their formatting (along with complicated and expensive). There is nothing any system I have seen does that QuickBooks does not have the ability to do, and there is plenty QuickBooks can do that the others are not set for. "I suggest staying with QuickBooks OR going to a manual set of books as our accounting picture is just not that complicated at Meadow Wood."
