Comments: User friendly.

Pros: QB Nonprofit desktop is easy to use with its flexibility and options which includes name search for customers and vendors and its versitility in financial statements. The classes allow us to get financial statements by class or department which are also very useful. Along with our main department (church) we also have 2 schools, so the software allows us to get financial statements for just the schools. We also use the budgets and get financial statements that show comparisons to budget projections. Dollar to dollar and percentage comparisons. Budgets are easy to prepare. Numbers that are exactly to same from month to month can just be copied across the entire year and don't have to be entered into each month individually.

Cons: 1. Sometimes have to wait a long time (as much as 45 minutes) to get telephone support. 2. No name search for employees.

Quickbooks is a basic accounting software that helps to keep the books up to date.

Pros: Easy to use (General Ledger)
Some flexibility downloading information to Excel (General Ledger)
Price

Cons: Fixed Assets functionality is only available in Single-User mode
Merchant activity is not applied automatically as promised if you have more than one GL account
Reports are very rigid
It does not have a report designer that gives the flexibility to download information
Unable to upload activity from Excel without a 3rd party software
It does not have account reconciliation system to keep track of balance sheet accounts

Overall: I would recommend Quickbooks to small organizations that need a basic accounting software, small to mid volume of vendors/invoices.

Pros: My company uses Quickbooks Nonprofit specifically for payroll services. It has certain features absent from quickbooks online. Namely the ability to use multiple classes for an individual.
The software is very affordable and if you work for a small to medium sized nonprofit organization, this is probably the best value.
The software is very user friendly, and even a non-accountant can be quite proficient.

Cons: The software is not easily transfered to other software programs. For instance, even when you export a report to Excel, it includes blank spaces between columns, and some include row headers in different columns. This makes some cleaning up necessary if a pivot table is desired.

Comments: Would like to see this product be more versatile. I use it with Blackbaud products and have some difficulties with imports into QuickBooks. Sometimes all the information I need does not get pulled in. Otherwise, the product is usable.

Pros: It is fairly easy to use, if you are used to this form of accounting. The layout allows for ease in finding items. Search capability is good, if you type in exactly what you are looking for. Great to use for general ledgers, income and expenses.

Cons: Does not interact well with some database programs and does not import and export some needed information. Also, keeping a record of information is difficult, unless it is number related.

Comments: I don't like the lack of support after two years. But the community of QuickBooks users is so large that help can be found almost anywhere.

Pros: This program is customizable to the needs of each Nonprofit. It can be used as a standalone program or a networked financial database. It has all the necessary functions to do all daily, monthly, and yearly financial paperwork for a small to medium-sized Non-profit.

Cons: The learning curve can be steep. Prior experience with the program or with accounting is very useful. Set up should be done by a professional CPA to ensure it's tracking all the needed items for IRS reporting.

Pros: Reporting is mostly good, easy entries solving the double entry accounting needed in a single entry; vendor set up is easy;customer invoicing is streamlined; bill paying is clear

Cons: This software will not perform detailed reports for donor tracking; cannot compare actual to budgeted costs at a single point in time for actuals, that is, cannot run a report to show actuals to date versus an annual budget which is the most frustrating thing about quickbooks, reporting has to be to a month or a year compared to the same period.

Overall: ease of use and most reporting.

Cons: Slight learning curve
Poor customer support

Overall: I used to use Quicken years ago and have been using Quickbooks non-profit for my theater company. It is accurate, fairly straight forward, but little things are still not fixed. I have favorites (e.g.: Report of checks written and not cleared) they disappear and hsvdvthey recdo them every other day. A minor problem, but I was hoping this would have been fixed by version 2016. Sadly it wasn't.

Would I recommend this product for a non-profit? Yes, yes I would!

Pros: Makes it easy to make invoices and donation statements. Nice way to see customer history and keep up with who owes money and who doesn't.

Cons: Direct deposit and tax payment services are kind of pricy. We changed to a different software due to the cost. A lot of times when we have to call tech support it is hard to understand the tech. I know this is farmed out overseas and that is fine, but would be nice if phone connections were better and accents weren't so thick.

Overall: It is very easy to use and accurate!

Pros: I love that QB and Intuit researched out what a non-profit needed (or could use) to better manage relationships with their constituents. They created a lot of reports that i never would have come up with myself, but that we use on a weekly basis.

Cons: Sometimes I get lost when trying to do certain tasks. The names they use are not in my vernacular so I stumble a bit. It also has lost settings before that cause it mess with the way my data is displayed.

Overall: QB is very forgiving when you make a mistake.

Comments: I am a long-time user, and will continue to be!

Pros: The QuickBooks interface has always been, and continues to be, extremely easy to navigate. It is very intuitive (pardon the pun!) and is fairly consistent across different versions, which I found important when I was a sole practioner.

Cons: The lack of ability to perform consolidations places what I believe to be the only severe limitation on this product. Thus, if you operate more than one entity, it is not as useful a product.

Comments: If your company is starting out. You can't go wrong with Quickbooks. Most if not all Accountants and CPA firms are experts at using Quickbooks.

Pros: Great for Non-profits or small businesses starting out. Simple to use. Most widely uses bookkeeping software.

Cons: It is not cloud-based.The software cannot upload receipts. In a paperless era that we are in this would be a vast improvement to have. I wished Quickbooks Online had the same features and functionality as the desktop version. However, it does not.

I used Quickbooks for Non-Profits at a church where i served as pastor.

Pros: I loved the detailed reporting that Quickbooks for Non-Profits provided, and the similarity with Quickbooks for Businesses, so that volunteers who were already trained in the Business version could easily mange the Non-Profit version.

Cons: I found setting up the Non-Profit version of Quickbooks a little awkward. I wish it had been transformed more into the common language of non-profits.

Vendor Response

by Intuit on January 30, 2018

Thanks for the great review! I'm glad to hear the reporting is working well for you. To have your company reflect things like Donors and Revenue & Expenditures you just need to change a couple options in Account and Settings in the Gear menu. Company settings will have a Tax form option you can switch to Non-Profit and then go to the Advanced tab for changing the Customer label to whatever your company needs. Let us know if you need any other help setting up your account for running a non-profit! The QuickBooks Team

Pros: - All of the basics are here! Even has nonprofit-specific reports. Any CRM should integrate with Quickbooks seamlessly.

Cons: - To use the Nonprofit-specific reports, you must be using customers (donors). Some CRM's do not import with customers here (for example, one organization I work with's CRM imports the donor name into the Memo field, so the nonprofit reports are useless to them).

Comments: I've been using Quickbooks for a little over 5 years. I'm always learning better processes and how to financially manage my non-profit with ease and comfort.

Pros: I enjoy the ease of setting up new company files and effective recording. Automatic updates is awesome!

Cons: There is not enough hands on training available in my area. I'm a quick learner but sometimes it's difficult to find the best solution to my questions.

Pros: Everyone knows QuickBooks. If you are a non-profit, then even better! You now have Quickbooks functionality, built with all the things a 501(c)3 needs to keep their books in order. You no longer have to worry about the IRS audit. Instead, just keep up to date on your QuickBooks Non-Profit tasks, and you will be set!

Cons: Pricing model for this is a bit funky. You are paying for a higher end system. But I feel like QuickBooks should do more to cater to the budget strapped non-profit corporations. If you are looking for something for more value, you can certainly find it.

Pros: It makes payroll very simple. The automatic tax updates ensures that I'm always using the correct rates.

Pros: I like the organization that the Quickbooks provides and the ease of software. Great for anyone starting a small business. Quickbooks worked great during our company golf event. Was able to charge everyone via an iPad which made things so easy.

Cons: The software needs to be refined a little more. The desktop edition consumes more RAM than it should. A strong PC is definitively needed to run the software effectively and efficiently. Also some of the software features need to be made a little more user-friendly.

Vendor Response

I want you to have all the info you deserve about why support incurs a fee and the reasons behind updates, Sue. While many subscription-based products have support included in the monthly charge (like Online), our standalone Desktop products are billed once upon purchase. Instead of charging more for the product itself, the price is kept at a lower rate by offering advanced support separately. There's more about support plans, and what you can still get without them, at https://community.intuit.com/articles/1501198. Additionally, the need to upgrade the program, and discontinue older products, is a decision predicated on the assurance you will receive top of the line software and support. As older products are retired, all attention can be given to the most secure and feature-laden service on the market. Before I forget, thanks for reaching out with your review. Happy filming to you and your team at Rehoboth Beach Film Society, by the way. Break a leg! Jess, The QuickBooks Team

Pros: QuickBooks Non-Profit is an excellent choice for nonprofit accounting. IT is very easy to enter information, make adjustments and run reports. As a nonprofit, we are constantly generating that information for grants and donors - so it is very easy.

Cons: Managing donor data is easy to a point, if you have another donor database you might run into some difficulty trying to track contributions or donations.

Overall: We are able to use Quickbooks to carry out all of our financial functions and easily keep track of everything. I would definitely use it unless you need high volume programs and can afford software that integrates other functions (like donor tracking, record keeping, etc)

Vendor Response

I'm beyond pleased to see how easy QuickBooks has made managing your organization, and appreciate the review. With this said. I'd like to discuss which point the donor database gives you trouble. Because the system easily integrates with other programs, I'll find steps you can take to keep tracking simple. Could you send me an email directly at qbcares@intuit.com? I'll dig right in, and look forward to hearing from you. Jess, The QuickBooks Team

Quickbooks is very user-friendly.

Pros: Everything except the reporting module.

Cons: The reporting module.

Overall: I have yet to find any processing needs that QuickBooks can not handle, EXCEPT, the reporting module. I find a good reporting module will allow free-form reports to be generated on ANY and ALL information that is contained in the database. Unfortunately, QuickBooks only allows the client to use pre-designed reports that are specific to the data they determine to be relevant for reports. Yes, some messaging can be performed on those reports; however, the data can not be customized. From a client perspective, there are times that an audit of certain data (parameters) that drive how the system will ultimately function, would be of enormous benefit. Also, the client definitely has specific report desires beyond what QuickBooks' programmers have pre-determined would meet their needs. Bottom line: If the client is allowed to input data, the client should be allowed to print that data via reports, while structuring how they want that data to appear on those reports.

Really helps with accounting of incoming funds for our non-profit.

Pros: Makes my job so much easier. Payroll is a snap! If I have any issues at all, the tech support is quick to help and make sure I understand. I honestly couldn't imagine not having this program. I can manage tasks within a few hours where in the past, hand writing - that took forever. As a non profit, it really has come in handy.

Overall: Ease of doing payroll for a small non profit business and knowing I am transparent makes a huge difference!

Pros: This system has an easy to use interface. Easy to learn, aesthetically pleasing and has a flow chart to help if a user has little familiarity to the system.

Comments: Overall a great program that allows us the functionality to apply it to our needs as a nonprofit.

Pros: It is universally known and we can easily send info to our accountant come tax time. Has a number of features, like allowing us to download our banking information, to ease input. I don't have an accountant background, but was able to easily navigate around, once I got the hang of it.

Cons: We did not get the online version for added security and for cost. We wish the online version was cheaper. Other than that, no complaints.

Pros: I like how easy it is to find my way around. After several couple hour sessions from the former treasurer, I was up and running doing the books for my church. I'm still learning things along the way, but having fun figuring them out because help is pretty easily available -- and because I can intuit (!) much of what I need to use after learning the basics. Oh, and I LOVE that I can export reports into Excel with the click of a button!! I also love that it keeps track easily of contributions from church members so all I have to do at the end of the year is hit a button to run contribution receipts for members.

Cons: I wish I could tweak a few more things about the reports, but I know that the more customizeable something is, the more complicated it usually is. And the current programmed options are at least decent. So, I'm OK with the fact that I can at least export into Excel and customize whatever I need that way.

Overall: Streamlining my work as treasurer.

Comments: Quickbooks is a trusted name with a long history of great products. However, our time with Quickbooks nonprofit has not exactly met our needs. There isn't as flexible of reporting as we hoped, there are set criteria for reports and customization is difficult with occasional glitches. There is no functionality to check for duplicate records which are necessary as we have several volunteers working and entering information. Quickbooks for nonprofits has done a great job with their profit and loss tracking, we do use this for all of our expenses and board meeting reports.
