Sometimes software sucks. When you juggle multiple clients with diverse needs and deadlines, it’s easy for things to fall through the cracks. You’d think your software would help you get more organized, but sometimes it falls short. QuickBooks is great at managing cash flow, but it’s not very good at helping you track the progress of an engagement or allocate your resources more effectively. And there’s much more to running a business than simply tracking the flow of cash. We’ve all been there. To compensate for the lagging software, you end up using multiple tools and methods to manage your practice. But this is inefficient and expensive.
QuickBooks: an inch deep but a mile wide
QuickBooks wasn’t specifically created for businesses that need detailed project accounting and reporting, detailed tracking of return on time or very detailed invoices and supporting documentation, especially for reimbursable expenses. But QuickBooks is a good bookkeeping tool. And that’s why bookkeepers love it – it makes their job easy. However, it’s wasn’t created to make your job easier, by helping you make better decisions. Not to mention, in the past year alone, QuickBooks has nearly tripled its fees. And the fees will continue to increase as they nickel and dime you for additional services. If you’re using QuickBooks for simple functions, such as paying vendors, tracking invoices for your customers, or bank reconciliations, then you’re wasting your money. There is far less expensive software with the same functionalities. The best software will help get you the right information for your professional services business so you can ensure you maximize return on time and also implement the ‘science of better’ – better processes, happier people, happier customers.
