I would like some feedback on using Quickbooks:
-if you like it for tracking jobs
-if you like for general accounting
-what other software would you recommend
Quickbooks is the best program for the accounting side and tracking job expenses and invoices, but UDA Constructionsuite is the best for contructions management and estimating. It integrates with quickbooks for invoicing and actuals. The estimating spreadsheet, scheduling templetes, contract rendering, and task management is unmatched. Can be expensive ($300-$1,000 depending on version), but templetes and integrations with quickbooks and office applications will save you an amazing amount of time.
