As you evaluate your decision between QuickBooks Premier and QuickBooks Enterprise software, keep in mind that the Enterprise version of QuickBooks provides a lot more features and benefits that may help cost-justify the purchase very quickly. Here are some of the key differences:
- With QuickBooks Enterprise, you receive a 12 month subscription for a 10 gigabyte (GB) online data backup vault at no extra cost. This data backup vault allows you to backup not just your critical QuickBooks data file, but also your spreadsheets, text documents, graphics, and virtually any other digital file. QuickBooks Pro and Premier do not include this.
- With QuickBooks Enterprise, you receive free technical support directly from the Enterprise support team for a full 12 months at no extra cost. With QuickBooks Pro and Premier, you receive 30 days of tech support directly from Intuit at no extra cost.
- With QuickBooks Enterprise, you receive a full set of training CDs on the software at no extra cost. These are not available with the purchase of QuickBooks Pro or Premier.
- With QuickBooks Enterprise, you receive one free license/seat for each of their bundled applications - Warehouse ES, Sales Management ES, Field Service ES, and Business Intelligence ES. These applications are built in to QuickBooks Enterprise to help your business solve specific issues (such as lot tracking of inventory, etc.)
These are just a few of the differences between the two packages. For more insight on QuickBooks Enterprise software, download my special QuickBooks Enterprise report, visit my special QuickBooks Enterprise web page, or contact me.
