I'd like to say first off that the tech support for QuickBooks Pro is poor unless you get an American on the phone. I guess for a program that costs less than $200 you can't expect unlimited free tech support from US reps but it would be nice if you could get one on the phone once in a while or perhaps pay a little extra to speak to Americans only. We decided to pay the extra for QB Enterprise, not because we really needed it but because of the Tech support plans. It's amazing how good the Tech support is when your willing to shell out a couple thousand $$ and then agree to a $750 a year renewal fee. Still though, it's much cheaper than talking to my accountant and the Enterprise technical support is generally outstanding. They will go out of their way to make sure you have everything you could ever need. You still will sometimes get a goof ball if you call at odd hours and very occasionally when you call during normal hours in but for the most part everyone you speak to is located in the US.

The product itself had some problems back in 2006 when they released this new type of QuickBooks. We quickly because frustrated with hosting issues, slowness, having to install it on our server, errors logging into the file etc..

2008 however has been very good thus-far. It's not that big of an improvement although I do appreciate the fact that it integrates with Outlook. The new help system also seems to have a pretty big improvement. Some of the other complaints I've read seem mislead and/or petty...some of this is no doubt the poor technical support from India. For example, one person mentions that after 8 years they still can't import transactions. Sure you can! We've imported AR and AP transactions using import through iif.

1.0 out of 5 stars QB 08 NEEDS A LOT OF WORK December 29, 2007
Verified Purchase
This 2008 program is the worst intuit product I have ever used. Sometimes more isn't better: it is just more. More time, More space, More problems, More aggravation. I have been using Quick Books since 1997, on a verity of computers running different platforms. It is long on ascetic form and short on function. I use it for work so come January 1st, I am going to find another program. This program costs me about two billable hours for each account, and I simply can't afford to lose that kind of time. If you aren't using it for business and are essentially a novice and need all of the redundancies it may work for you just fine.

I purchased the 2008 product because we had acquired two new computers using the Vista Protocols, I also work for clients who are still using windows 98, and that is a nightmare, surprisingly one of computers it runs the best on is running the windows 2000me. After about a month of trying to get the 2005 edition to work with the vista and being informed that the 2005 product was no longer going to be supported by updates after the 2008 release we decided to switch.

Here are my problems if anyone has a found a work around I will be all ears, INTUIT, has none, although they are aware of them.

1. The 2008 edition uses a lot of third party software, Google search, spell check, their own automatic update service, etcetera, and if you use it in tandem with the quick books customer manager you also have a whole new can of worms.

2. When opening the program it goes searching and starts all of these other programs but not in an orderly fashion. So it will hit a "program busy switch to" error about every two seconds.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't upgrade until they fix problems. December 11, 2007
By NgaK200
I have been using Quickbooks Pro for over 10 years so I have found many good features but the loan manager for managing loans has a major flaw they can't seem to fix. The data files are stored in a separate file format & don't back up with a normal data back up. Then they don't transfer when you upgrade to a newer version. You can't access them because it moves all the other files to the newer version. I told them 2 years ago about this & they promised a fix soon. Didn't happen. Tech support told me to recreate the files manually, they were sorry.

2.0 out of 5 stars Upgrade WARNING March 15, 2008
I was forced to upgrade by Intiut's payroll service from QB2005 to QB2008. If you are upgrading from QB2005 or before you MUST read the following: This is a MAJOR upgrade with a change in your company file format. Before you upgrade you must backup your company file to floppy, second hard drives, CD, DVD, anywhere and everywhere you can. Please reread the previous sentence. After the install finishes it asks you if you will let it move your company file to a new QB directory. YOU MUST WRITE DOWN THE LOCATION OF THIS NEW DIRECTORY ON A PIECE OF PAPER because in the install step coming up QB2008 forgets where it put it. Preferably you will have QB2008 find and load this moved file rather than loading one of your multiple backups because your backup has a different file suffix. FWIW: My Windows Internet Explorer (XP Home-SP2) oddly found the moved file but didn't tell me the files' correct directory path. Really. I finally located the moved company file in a shared documents area which is not where Internet Explorer said it was. In loading this file for the first time QB2008 will convert the file to the new QB2008 format.

When I went to register my QB2008 the online registration failed because it claimed my IE wouldn't allow cookies which isn't true. Hmmm. What is Intuit up to with this? To register I had to talk to someone in India who was hard to hear and understand.

It seems that every few years QuickBooks changes their company file format and almost forces you to upgrade. BTW: The install program adds some advertising icons to your desktop. No problem. Just right click them and delete them.

The program menu in QB2008 looks completely different than QB2005. Looks like I'll be spending some time re-learning.
