Anytime, anywhere access using your PC, iPad, iPhone, or tablet computer is becoming the name of the game in our busy lives as we become more driven by technology and the desire to make life easier. The lure of the cloud is everywhere - including the thought of putting your QuickBooks accounting information there as well.
Intuit's QuickBooks, especially the Pro, Premier and Enterprise desktop versions, are the most popular small business accounting programs on the market; far more so than the QuickBooks Online versions. This is mainly because the desktop versions are more powerful, flexible, and can work with more 3rd party applications that can extend functionality for your business than the online versions. Another reason that the desktop version is more popular is because they have more functionality, especially when it comes to job-costing and payroll.
