It is my understanding that QB is a database (like Access) where Excel is a spreadsheet. It was explained to me (back in the 90s) that when you use Excel, all data goes into the computer memory and you can have system slow down or stoppage from too much memory being used (today, that may not be as much of a problem but I think the principle still remains).Excel can be utilized to create any small biz speadsheet, the only advantage of QB's is they are easily cross calculated and audited.
There are multiple versions of QB, as well as incremental updates that follow suit , all having their pros & cons PeteyI am about as small as it gets, and I find it invaluable. I admit I only use about half of it's power, but I only upgrade every three years so IMO it's worth every penny.
It has all kind of wonderful, simple features. Custom Invoices, Estimates, PO's, Sales Tracking, Reports (Sales by quarter, year, month, customer, aging, profit and loss, etc..), paid, credit memo's, blah blah. Can sync to all your iphones, cloud, pad, etc... Quite nice for only $100ish per year to platinum planSince you answered, how does "Invoicetogo" "keep sales in check"?
