In this installment, we’ll take a look at a comparison of features between QuickBooks Online (QBO) and QuickBooks Enterprise (QBE).
Note: Be sure to check out part 1, where we took a look at the cost and 24/7 access differences between QBO and QBE.
FEATURE COMPARISON – QUICKBOOKS ONLINE VS. QUICKBOOKS ENTERPRISE
Rather than list out a side by side comparison of what both products have in common, I thought it would be helpful to identify those key features that exist in one or the other, but not both.
The lists below are not designed to be all-inclusive, as Intuit tweaks QuickBooks regularly. These are focused on what typical end users would need, not special features that accountants may use in QB.
Features in QBE but not QBO:
- Sales orders
- Industry specific reporting (contractor, mfg/wholesale, etc.)
- Multi-location inventory tracking, lot/serial tracking, barcoding (these are only available in the Platinum subscription level of QBE)
- Available to promise inventory
- Assemblies and bills of material
- Change orders on estimates
- Fixed asset manager
- Batch enter transactions
Features in QBO but not QBE:
- Schedule and send transactions
- Bank feeds can be set up to run automatically every night
- Multiple budgets per fiscal year
- Journal entries can have multiple AR or AP entries in them
- Delayed charges (set up now, but record later)
- 24/7 access, since it is web based
