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!
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!
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.
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!!!
We work with our clients virtually, so online accountant is our tool of choice. We are able to make adjustments and easily convert the books to a tax return!
