Top Customer Reviews
If you're a small business and don't deal with inventory, invoicing, etc., this ia a great program and all you need. Being able to download it makes it cheaper and the download was very easy, as well as the install and set up.
I used to work as a bookkeeper so I was already familiar with QuickBooks. But I had worked with other programs in the past (MAS 90 and Peachtree) and can tell you that QuickBooks is the most user friendly and easy to use program I have ever worked with. If you have never used an accounting software, I think this is a great one to start with. It's even good if you just want to track your personal finances, reconcile bank statements, etc.
As a side note, Simple Start IS a business oriented program, but many basic features were lacking. Upgrade to the next level if you need to track customers and billing. I doubt this program will meet your needs.
