I love MoneyWorks and find that it is very easy to use, and also easy to make any changes that you need to do. When I was on a pc I used quickbooks.........but couldn't find that for Mac - so glad that I made the change to MoneyWorks
I'm the sole employee of my business and I use AE. I think at the time, I chose AE over Moneyworks simply b/c it was slightly cheaper. I find it easy to use, support contact has been fantastic and the software has been rock solid. No issues - I only contacted support with my own questions. I had exported info out of Quickboos into spreadsheets then imported into AE.
I have to be honest, I think MW is probably just as good. Maybe the difference starts when you have a multiple user setting.
But for me, I use Daylite to manage my customer relations - leads, opportunities etc... Both MW and AE have links from directly within DL. I added the DL Touch app for my iPhone and iPad and although not cheap ($50 for the year), it has been very successful for me adding potential leads on the go, updating information and/or checking for addresses or calling clients while on the go.
I made this change just over a year ago and it's one of the best changes I've made so personally, I don't think you can go wrong.
I've implemented AccountEdge for a client and the software is easy to use. I faced some connectivity issues in multi-users mode but it was few years ago.
If you needs are limited (no payroll) solution, just for book keeping, I'm using Accounts from Nano Software since 2005. This software is not expensive and will do everything required to manage all book keeping transactions for a small company.
Geoff here. First, I work for Intuit, the company that makes QuickBooks, so I'm somewhat biased.
We now have a Mac-compatible version in Canada, QuickBooks Online. If you're used to QB, QBO might be a good option. You can try it for free if you want to check it out.
QuickBooks Online is compatible with Mac, PC and iPad. (I'm fiddling with it on a couple Linux OS, although it's not oficially supported.) It's cloud-based, so you can access it from anywhere.
There are a few versions, and the team can help guide you to the right version and determine how much of our data is easily transferred over. They're available M–F 9am–11pm (eastern) at 1-888-829-8589. They can also recommend an accountant or ProAdvisor to help you make the switch.
