The upgrade from Quickbooks Pro 2003 went very smoothly. Unfortunately the software, with no notification to the user, adds a second user to the XP operating system, necessitating logging on as a particular user when your computer boots.
We've found no real benefits from this "upgrade". The software boots much slower thanks to the DOUBLING of the company file. New users may find the redesigned home page useful and despite a great deal of verbage - that is about all that is new here.
New users should take advantage of the 30 days of free support - after that Quicken's dubious support is very high priced.
Quicken's business model is important to understand. They do not tweak their software, from year to year, for increased useability. The only changes that Quicken seems to devote their programming talent toward are new features, some well implemented and some poorly implemented - I don't think it matters to them - anything that will suggest a reason to purchase or upgrade the software. How easy the software could function on a day to day basis seems to be never given a thought.
Secondly Quicken expects your purchase of this software to be the first of many purchases from them. New business owners often will need expert help to set it up. Quicken, will of course, provide you with the name of a certified Quickbooks consultant, who for a fee, will set up the software. The software now comes with an on screen tutorial that may help some new users but it seemed less than complete.
New business owners should test all competing software to see what works best for them. Quickbooks is not bad software but it doesn't seem to evolve in a manner that is really sensitive to user's needs.
New users should also be aware that Quickbooks update feature routinely downloads very sizeable files that seem to do little if anything. A high speed internet connection is strongly suggested.
Also Amazon offered a $25 credit to the account if I used their card, I still haven't recieved the credit. Just bad, all the way around.
CRITICAL NOTICE: Visit Here by 4/30/06 to Stay Connected.
That page then informed me that as of April 30th my download features would no longer work. That my only option was to upgrade to the new package.
So I bought the new software (like the mule that I am) only to find the interface radically redesigned in a completely useless way.
To add insult to injury, the program also has an offensive registration process requiring you to answer confidential information about your business. Yeah sure after all they've done I am sure to trust them not to share our information.
BOTTOM LINE: Go steal a copy of this program online to try before you buy. I promise you that had I had a chance to do so I would have never wasted my time and money.
