QuickBooks ProAdvisors are trained accounting professionals who specialize in QuickBooks setup, implementation, and training across a variety of QuickBooks products. ProAdvisors are certified by Intuit and have advanced knowledge to help small businesses manage their customers, vendors, inventory, sales & income, bills & expenses, and more. Here are six reasons to work with a QuickBooks ProAdvisor:
- QuickBooks ProAdvisors are experts in one of the most powerful and widely used accounting software applications in the world.
Intuit QuickBooks had 75% market share in 2018 and has surpassed 5.6 million customers worldwide. QuickBooks was recently named the Best Small Business Accounting Software for 2019 by PC Magazine. Most accounting professionals are familiar with the basic functionality of QuickBooks because it is so widely used. But ProAdvisors have an in-depth knowledge of QuickBooks and are well-versed in the newest versions and features of the software.
- QuickBooks ProAdvisors are experts in converting data from other software packages into QuickBooks.
Many small businesses and startups store their financial transactions in Excel or use simple cloud-based accounting software. When it’s time for more robust functionality and more sophisticated financial reporting, QuickBooks ProAdvisors are experienced with exporting data from other applications and importing it into QuickBooks, verifying the accuracy of the converted data, and training users on the features of this powerful tool.
- QuickBooks ProAdvisors have access to a variety of product discounts and special pricing for their clients.
ProAdvisors have access to a variety of discounts on QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Desktop, QuickBooks Enterprise, discounted checks and supplies, and more – and have the ability to pass significant savings along to their firms and to their clients.
- QuickBooks ProAdvisors are experts in setting up QuickBooks based on the needs of individual businesses.
Setting up QuickBooks for a small business includes establishing the chart of accounts, setting up customers and vendors, customizing forms, and setting up the import of banking & credit card transactions. QuickBooks ProAdvisors can also set up tracking of profits and costs by job or by project, set up inventory tracking, and help identify & implement other QuickBooks modules or third party apps that can eliminate data entry and streamline operations. From time tracking to digital checks to customer relationship management (CRM), there are 500+ apps in the QuickBooks Online App Store that harness the power of QuickBooks.
- QuickBooks ProAdvisors offer a variety of accounting- and bookkeeping-related services.
In addition to QuickBooks software expertise, a QuickBooks ProAdvisor can provide accounting services and bookkeeping services that will allow the business owner to focus on what matters most: business growth, profitability, and long-term strategy.
- QuickBooks ProAdvisors are sources of information when it comes to new features and new releases of the software.
QuickBooks ProAdvisors can access training classes and are able to elevate their skills with certification exams and master classes provided by Intuit. Many ProAdvisors also attend the annual QuickBooks Connect conference in San Jose CA where accounting professionals, small business owners, and developers come together to learn and connect. ProAdvisors return with a wealth of knowledge to pass along to their clients – from the newest features and third-party apps – to information on tech trends from Intuit and accounting industry experts.
