Background

QuickBooks by Intuit offers users a good starter accounting package at a good price. However, it is designed to handle basic accounting only. To manage business processes outside of financials requires an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, which can handle accounting and financial management needs along with other business requirements, such as manufacturing, distribution, and much more. In the chart below, we compare Acumatica to QuickBooks Enterprise, Intuit’s top-of-the-line QuickBooks product.

QuickBooks Enterprise can be installed locally (on-premises) or hosted on the internet (“in the cloud”). Keep in mind that Acumatica and QuickBooks are designed for two different purposes, so it is difficult to provide a true, side-by-side comparison. Our intent here, however, is to show some of the advantages of moving from QuickBooks to an ERP system, as well as the advantages of choosing Acumatica.

"I did demos with a lot of the ERP companies, the big ones Infor and SAP. What I found with Acumatica was their willingness to answer all my questions and do multiple demos. From the start I really felt like they were here to fully support us."

Differentiators

True cloud

Acumatica was designed and built as a cloud-native application suite. QuickBooks Enterprise is a client-server architecture that can be “hosted” in the cloud. It does not feature cloud-native capabilities such as access via a standard web browser only, a true mobile-friendly user interface, nor seamless product upgrades.

Full function ERP

Acumatica offers a complete ERP and CRM solution, including vertical-specific modules. QuickBooks Enterprise is limited to Financials Management, Payroll, Order Management, Inventory, and Pricing.

Full relational database export

QuickBooks uses a proprietary database and does not provide a true export function, requiring a third-party utility to access the underlying database. Acumatica allows users to export their full database at any time for any reason.

Flexible licensing options

Both products are available through subscription licensing, but Acumatica also offers alternate options to accommodate customers’ unique requirements.

Scale as you grow

Acumatica allows you to scale as your company grows without penalty and can accommodate multiple companies, multiple languages, and multiple currencies. QuickBooks Enterprise limits you to a maximum of 40 users and struggles with supporting “multi-“ capabilities.

Return on Investment (ROI)

Acumatica provides a much greater return on investment (ROI) due to its industry-leading functionality, modern and future-proof technology platform, customer-friendly business practices, and unlimited user pricing model.
