“Accounting has never been so easy since QuickBooks came along.”


With more than 80% market share, Intuit's QuickBooks is easily the most widely-used small business accounting software around. It's not just that it's easy to understand and use; QuickBooks is actually designed as an accounting software for people who have little to no accounting background at all. How can you not love that?


As a result, it provides a wealth of advantages for the average professional. QuickBooks can help most any user create financial statements and reports, track expenses, sales and inventory, and so much more.   In fact, QuickBooks is so widely used in many offices that it’s often a job requirement to at least be proficient in the software.  So if you’re needing to do any accounts receivable, accounts payable, invoicing, financial reports and projections, and especially budgets of any kind with your job, this is usually the software to date.
