Re: Fathom app in QuickBooks Online Accountant vs. Smart Reporting Powered by Fathom in QuickBook...
You've come to the right place for help with QuickBooks, Nathan-K.
I'd be glad to differentiate the Fathom app between the QuickBooks Online Accountant and QuickBooks Online Advanced.
Fathom is an easy to use management reporting and financial analysis tool, which helps you assess business performance, monitor trends and identify improvement opportunities.
The difference between the Fathom app in QuickBooks Online Accountant is that you'll need to search for the application and connect it with QuickBooks. While the Smart Reporting in QuickBooks Online Advanced is a built-in feature that needs to be turned on.
For Smart Reporting tutorials, see the video below:
To know more about the Smart Reporting by Fathom, the following articles are good references:
The Fathom app operates the same way whether you’re using the QBO Advanced or other versions. It only differs on the integration process since the Smart Reporting powered by Fathom is a built-in feature.
Meanwhile, the one in the QuickBooks Online Accountant is a paid subscription. You still have to connect it to QuickBooks to use the feature.
I’m adding articles with detailed information on how to manage apps, ways to check the prices and subscription orders:
