Having said that, Peachtree has not let me down for the past 41 days that I have used it (knock on wood!). It is very intuitive (as one reviewer commented) and offers several choices (like a template company), depending on your type of business, with “default” forms and entries, making it easier to use. It is very easy to set up probably because I already had practiced with the online 30-day trial. Nonetheless, the program guides you step-by-step and there is no way any item/entry will be missed because it will flag/remind you with a pop-up window.
Entering vendors and bills is a breeze. Because it has a flow-chart system that helps you what to do, you can not miss any bills and payments due. It allows the user to enter the default for a vendor’s address/credit limit, inventory items and prices so this prevents double-entry accounting, which saves a huge amount of time!
Receiving money is also easy. It asks for what invoice the received money is for and all it takes is 2 clicks and you’re done! It also allows you to send an invoice for a customer through e-mail which makes receiving money faster (no need for fax or postage!).
The software allows you to enter as much information as possible for every entry and attach whatever files you want WITHOUT additional fees that Quickbooks demand!
You have the option of using Peachtree’s payroll system (with a yearly fee less than Quickbooks!) or you can do it yourself. It guides you on what forms to submit for tax purposes.
Having ended the 2010 accounting year, I recently printed my income statement for the year 2010 and wanted to change my accounting period for 2011 but it did not allow me to do so without doing an “internal audit.” The software flags you of what you need to check before the accounting period can be changed (unreconciled accounts, double billing, out-of-stock inventory, and the list goes on). The software also reminds you to back up your data with a pop-up window if you have not done so beyond 7 days.
Fortunately, I have not had the experience of calling tech support so I can not comment on that (thus, the 5 stars).
Over-all, I recommend this program to both accounting experts and to accounting dummies like me! This is WAY cheaper than Quickbooks without additional fees that QB extorts from the consumers. Don’t listen to your accountants when they tell you to use Quickbooks (because 98% of the accountants use QB and it’s easier for them to “manage” your ledger with the same program, of course!).
I will update this review once my accountant sees my Peachtree income statements and ledgers
