What is QuickBooks®?

Accounting is like doing exercises you despise – it may be necessary, but it’s certainly no fun. Businesses feel the pain of accounting more than most, with spreadsheets outgrowing their usefulness and paper invoices flying in all directions.

Doing accounting digitally helps somewhat, but storing everything in a computer opens an entirely new realm of worries: what if someone deletes something by accident? What if your computer crashes and all your financial records vanished into thin air? It’s enough to put even the most zen accountant into panic mode. But don’t reach for the tranquillizers just yet.

With QuickBooks®, you don’t have to worry about your financial data going ‘poof’ at a moment’s notice. It also offers advanced security methods, keeping anyone from snooping or stealing your information.
With the ability to add, delete or change user access privileges whenever you need, you can rely on QuickBooks® to keep your finances organised whatever life throws at them.

With full visibility of bank records all in one trusted place, you’ll make better decisions faster. Plus, with its cloud-based technology you won’t have to sacrifice productivity for cost-effectiveness – meaning you can have it all!

What is QuickBooks® used for?

Once you have set up accounting software, it soon becomes your best friend. The most basic functions are no doubt invoicing, managing cash flow and generating reports – but there are so many extra bells and whistles you can take advantage of if you want to optimize your record-keeping.

Here are ways you can stay one step ahead of your finances:

Connecting QuickBooks® to your bank accounts

With bank feeds, you don’t need to stress over keeping up with your financial data. Every transaction can be viewed in real-time, giving you an immediate understanding of where your business stands financially. This is incredibly beneficial for business owners who can now stay on top of their finances and identify discrepancies easily. Connecting accounts to QuickBooks® offers another layer of convenience with the assurance that all transactions appear quickly and accurately, saving time and reducing chances of manual errors.

Manage inventory

With its conveniently organized supplier info, restocking items are a breeze. Plus, QuickBooks® automatically updates your balance sheet with each purchase or sale of the stock so you can keep track of values effortlessly. And there’s one more bonus – when stock levels are low on any item, QuickBooks® will send an alert and ensure you never run out again. Finally, this efficient system ensures your PO converts directly into a bill for payment to suppliers with no delay upon receipt of inventory.

Go mobile

With the ability to capture receipts by taking a photo with your phone, entering and categorising expenses is made quick and seamless. With access to a highly informative mobile dashboard, you’ll always have an up-to-date understanding of the state of your business with key indicators such as profits, expenses and bank balance. Even invoicing has been simplified with QuickBooks® – transferring quotes to invoices in seconds and sending them via email or WhatsApp in no time at all.

Track expenses

From leveraging efficient tax deductions to ensuring budget compliance, businesses seeking cost optimization can benefit from better financial transparency with QuickBooks®. This solution also supports international transactions, allowing users to bill in a variety of currencies as well as adjust their reports with ease.

How to use QuickBooks®?

Technology can no doubt be intimidating, but the rewards it can bring to improve the lives of those who use it – especially to businesses that leverage it – make it hard to ignore.
