Accounting Software

Quickbooks accounting software is one of the biggest and most widely used accounting software by start-up, small, and medium sized businesses.  It comes in two versions:

  1. Quickbooks Desktop is the original Quickbooks accounting software program that you purchase and install onto your computer.
  2. Quickbooks Online is a comparatively new cloud-based monthly subscription version Quickbooks accounting software program and allows you access to your records anywhere you have access to the cloud.

The Desktop version has more features you can use, but it does not offer mobile access.  This version is used where you do business in one place, or that you do not need access to your finances outside of your office.

The Online version, on the cloud, cannot handle the coding the Desktop has, so its features are comparatively limited.  It does allow you to access your finances anywhere you can access the cloud.  It is popular for service and sales professionals who need to record business transactions outside of the office.

Setup & Instruction

When you choose to use either version of Quickbooks accounting software, RMOHC guides you through the setup process and then helps you customize Quickbooks accounting software to reflect your company.  This includes sculpting your Chart of Accounts, inserting your logo into templates for invoices and other documents, establishing beginning balances, and more.
