5.0 out of 5 stars Bookeeeping saviour
Having experienced software rage with the accountant recommended Sage it was a welcome relief to move to Quickbooks. Far easier to use, user friendly interface, flexible reporting, several customisations.... Worth every penny.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old dog, old tricks
Quickbooks has recieved good reviews from the likes of PC Pro and other respected publications, but you must be aware of its dark secret. The quickbooks engine is very very poor at handling large amounts of data. Intuit recommend your Quickbooks data file is below 50mb, 70mb max. I have encountered a company recently whos file was struggling along at 170mb and it was...

3.0 out of 5 stars Old dog, old tricks, 22 Aug 2006
This review is from: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2006 (PC) (CD-ROM)
Quickbooks has recieved good reviews from the likes of PC Pro and other respected publications, but you must be aware of its dark secret. The quickbooks engine is very very poor at handling large amounts of data. Intuit recommend your Quickbooks data file is below 50mb, 70mb max. I have encountered a company recently whos file was struggling along at 170mb and it was painfully slow to use. The only solution? Create a new company file and start again. Intuit recommend this procedure every 2 years!

It's shocking really when you consider the power of a modern PC.

Oh and one other thing, UK and USA Quickbooks 2006 are entirely different products.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple accounting software that works well, 31 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2006 (PC) (CD-ROM)
I actually bought QuickBooks 2006 even though a more recent version was available, because there were numerous threads on the internet about problems with the more recent version - 2008, I think. I'm not sure that you could use this software without some basic accounting knowledge, but it is pretty straightforward to use. Some of the procedures - like changing VAT rate or changing charge rates for a client - are a bit "clunky" and non-intuitive, but then, they are trying to cater for everyone. Likewise - and this is a bit like your typical Microsoft product - the route to change a setting for a customer or product is not logical, and the "help" they provide is as unhelpful as MS, as well! So you might wonder why I rate it 4 stars rather than 3?! I think the positives outweigh the negatives for a simple and relatively economical piece of software like this: I have used the 2006 version (and previously the 2004 version) since 2004. What I do with it is pretty simple - I only have a few customers and don't need to analyse them - so until I find that it doesn't do what I want it to do, I don't see the pressing need to upgrade to 2012.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Science of QuickBooks...., 29 July 2010
This review is from: Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2006 (PC) (CD-ROM)
I have worked with QuickBooks 2006 pro for many years as an accounting system for my Cupcake Business. It might be a little bit tricky to work (like eating and mastering oily seafood Linguini!)but on the whole, the system is a simple way of keeping small business accounts up to date and well managed. I may have got a double D in science and maths, but even I could navigate my way through the programme. Doug
