QuickBooks and Sage 50 (formerly known as Peachtree) are two popular accounting software programs used by businesses and individuals to help them manage their finances. These programs can help your business take a more active role in managing your finances, and complement the services of a professional accountant while still providing reliable bookkeeping tools to help you run your business more efficiently.
While both programs offer very similar benefits and features, there are some pros and cons of using one program over the other.
In a nutshell, the benefit of QuickBooks over other accounting software programs, including Peachtree, is the amount of help it offers business owners. For example, QuickBooks helps you easily set up your company’s profile within the program, as well as put transactions in place, among other things. It does all of this with very user-friendly interfaces and pictures to guide you along. Additionally, QuickBooks offers an “Interview” mode for setting up businesses that takes you through 21 simple and discrete steps that are easy to follow. Many of these steps require simply a “yes” or “no” answer, or merely selecting the industry your business is in from a list.
