Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by QBOA allows me to fully collaborate with my clients I LOVE QBOA! I love how easily I can collaborate and communicate with my clients using QBOA. The reclassify transactions feature is probably my favorite - I can correct categorization errors in seconds, making me look like a real hero! Collaboration + Proactivity + Transparency = QBOA! April 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by QBOA is not only changing the way that we work, but is also changing the way that our clients run their businesses. We have heard some folks in the industry talk about their struggles to find clients who are a 'good fit' for QBO. If you are one of those people, I highly recommend that you really dig in to this platform and find out what it is capable of! We offer online service to clients in a variety of industries including retail, restaurant/hospitality, construction, professional services and real estate. Our Top 3 Favorite Features Bank Feeds – The improved bank feeds make it easier than ever to keep our clients up to date. We love that we can still import data if a feed breaks, and that we can use the feed to get around direct connect fees and accidental import overlaps that can occur with web connect files. Our favorite improvement is the ability to match downloaded transfer transactions to each other (which was a problem area in the old system) Online Invoicing – Our clients have a much easier time with the improved invoicing window. It is so clean and easy for them to use, it is actually an enjoyable experience for them! We are now able to get everyone setup with their QuickBooks Payments account right out of the gate, and they are invoicing and collecting their revenue within a week of setup. Navigation – The time that we spend meeting with clients to re-teach them how to do things has drastically decreased since the Harmony platform came out. Forms load faster, changes occur instantly and report navigation is much cleaner. Most of our client training is focused on how to use the Quick Create menu – it makes it simple for them to perform their tasks while keeping them out of things that they shouldn't be messing with! There is so much more that we love about this product that cannot be measured in feature capabilities. The freedom that this product offers our team and our clients is unsurpassed by any of the other platforms we support at our firm. QBOA is not only changing the way that we work, but is also changing the way that our clients run their businesses. We encourage all of the forward thinkers in the industry to dive in and check it out as well! April 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The anytime, anywhere access is huge, allowing me to help a client from wherever I am. As a certified ProAdvisor, I was given access to this for free. Such an amazing deal! I can access all my clients from one portal and do everything I need to do them. Being able to have two companies open at once is also a huge benefit. I feel I have so much control using this product. March 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This program is so fantastic and "On-Line too! WOW A few years ago, I did not care for the QB On-line Version. What a difference a year (or 2) make. This program does it all, in most cases as easy as the desktop and provides instant access (for accountants, or assistance). Forget about others attempts to compete by having Pro in a cloud. This QB on-line version is built for the cloud and shows it. WHAT A GREAT WAY TO GO!!! February 24, 2014
