Quicken Business vs. Quickbooks Pro for a church preschool
(State College, PA)
I've been our church's preschool bookkeeper for a year now. I'm mostly self-taught when it comes to bookkeeping. When I started they had been using Quicken Deluxe 2013, which is normally used for tracking personal finances.
The preschool uses an outside accounting firm for payroll. My main responsibilities are collecting tuition payments, receiving donations, paying bills, and submitting monthly financial reports to the preschool director and committee.
I went through the first year struggling to use this program and get it to do what I want. The preschool committee is not happy with the current version of Quicken either. So, I have been tasked with finding a better alternative. I know Quicken and QuickBooks are made by the same company so I would prefer to stay with one of these software options as it will make the transition easier. Can you give me your opinion on Quicken Business vs. QuickBooks Pro and what you think might be the best option for me? Thank you.
