We Recommend QuickBooks Online When The Business:

Fast Easy Accounting Contractors Bookkeeping QuickBooks Online ScreenShot


  • Is run like a hobby

  • Not a construction company

  • Does not need full QuickBooks

  • Owner sole focus is saving money

  • Basic simple reports are all you need

  • Businesses with less than three employees

  • The owners enjoy doing everything themselves

  • The owners have lots of free time to learn software

  • They do not fit our client profile of contracting for profit

We Recommend QuickBooks Desktop Version Cloud Computing When The Business:

QuickBooks Expert In Construction Bookkeeping

QuickBooks desktop in the cloud - Is one area where you can reduce your overhead and increase your productivity fast and easy. You can work from anywhere, anytime, with a single source for all of your data which means you can:

  • Use a PC or Mac to access the windows based QuickBooks desktop version

  • Reduce your travel time and expenses

  • Create, print and/or email invoices at the jobsite and get paid immediately

  • Simplify PC maintenance and not have to deal with network issues in your office

  • Access to remote support so you are never alone

  • You are in business for yourself but not by yourself

  • Increased efficiency because you can have access to your live company files

Advantages Of QuickBooks Hosting (Cloud Computing) vs. QuickBooks Online

  • QuickBooks Online - Is a totally different version of QuickBooks. It is different than QuickBooks Pro, Premier, or Enterprise.

  • We Have Contracted - With an enterprise level QuickBooks hosting service to provide you with English speaking well trained network technicians to support you and your staff.

  • You Can Use The QuickBooks Version - You have purchased or we can arrange to lease QuickBooks on a month-to-month basis and you will be upgraded to the latest versions every year at no additional cost.

  • QuickBooks Desktop In The Cloud - Allows access to multiple licensed users at the same time and they do not have to be in the same location, city, state or country for that matter.

  • QuickBooks Online - Does not offer the full features of QuickBooks. QuickBooks cloud computing offers every feature available with QuickBooks.

  • QuickBooks Online - Does not have:

    • Purchase orders

    • Inventory tracking

    • Sales order tracking

    • Job costing or estimating

    • Customized price levels

    • Integration with Excel, Word, or Outlook

    • Online bill payment

    • Payroll input

    • Forecasts

    • Business plans

  • QuickBooks Online - Does not allow user add-ons programs like:

QuickBooks Hosting - Can save you and your staff time, energy and money by using exactly the same QuickBooks interface you use on your local PC.

This Is Only The Tip - Of the Iceberg. Everything we publish in our blog posts, articles in other websites, and anything you can find on the web is nothing compared to what is available to you as our client. We show only the basic tools to open your mind to the possibilities that are available to you. The best finish carpentry tools in the hands of a golf professional without proper carpentry training will not produce anything near to what a skilled finish carpenter can. The same can be said about the best construction business consulting and accounting tools in the hands of a skilled finish carpenter. And I say that with respect and admiration for everyone in construction.

When You Become A Client - Then we can tap into our resources of knowledge and strategy banks. We use the reports hidden in your QuickBooks in order to diagnose and understand your construction business and develop plans and help you implement a path to success for you and you alone because every contractor has unique Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (S.W.O.T. Analysis) that when understood can lead to a Strategic Roadmap which cannot help but make a lot of money.
