Intuit Quicken Premier 2007 [OLDER VERSION] – Not Bad

A little disappointed in this version. I have had quicken for a number of years and this is the first year i have really had problems. It was mainly in the banking downloads. Also had memory problems also, which was not relating to my pc. At least they listen to the problems – i just got an update that solved the memory problems and my banking downloads seem to be working fine now. I called customer service and they were very helpful in getting some of this resolved. Hopefully, they will keep providing updates. Otherwise, this is a great financial software package. Don’t be afraid to buy it since it appears they are fixing some of the problems that came out in the beginning. I would have given it a 5 star rating if it had not been for the glitches.

It’s ok, does what it is intended for but just not for me as i realized i won’t use it and had little interest in getting involed in the many features it has but to someone who is financially inclined and does allot with there money and needs organization and or connecting accts and tax stuff this may be good for you.

After reading mixed reviews on premier 2007, i decided to go with my previous good experiences with quicken products and give it a try. This product has done everything that i hoped it would, and more. Since i’ve retired and begun withdrawls on my investments, i’ve wanted to simplify the tracking of my financial accounts. With premier 2007 it’s been very easy to download all of my financial transactions and eliminate almost all of the manual entries that i previously had to do. Other features, such as financial analysis, graphing, etc, have also worked well and been very useful. Of course, the general program functioning is just as good as i’ve come to expect based on other quicken programs i’ve owned. My only problem (and i’m a long way from having tried all the program features) is that i can’t set up the calendar with repeat payment due dates as a “reference only” tool, because without having set up bill payment through quicken bill pay these calendar entries are seen as unpaid bills, which is then negatively reflected in my cash flow. This problem aside, i can highly recommend quicken premier 2007.

My wife and i have always had trouble tracking our finances. We aren’t experienced with other quicken (or ms money) products so this was a bit of a stab in the dark. But we needed to get some control and understanding of where we were spending our money – beyond what our check register showed. It takes some time and some work and there were a few times where i was banging my head on the desk, but in the end quicken 2007 is a superb product. I have had problems with the auto update, but i prefer to get the statement (online) and then verify my entries myself, anyway. Its quick to get going, easy to update and gives you all kinds of up to date reports about your finances and how you track them. Its helped us reduce unnecessary expenses and create a budget that is much easier to stick to than we expected. If understanding your personal finances is something you are interested in, and want to do better, i highly recommend quicken 2007.

  • Not Bad
  • Quicken Premiere 2007

Quicken Premier 2007 [OLDER VERSION]

  • No rebate needed – not eligible for Intuit mail in rebates.
  • Get instant insights into your spending with quick reports, charts and graphs
  • Easily track and analyze the performance of your investments and 401(k)s; powerful investment tools help you define your goals and conduct research
  • Connect with over 4,000 participating financial institutions to download your bank and credit card information for easy reconciliation
  • Keeps all your tax documents in one place; use Schedule A, B, and D tax reports to help you stay on top of your tax situation throughout the year

Qif support went away a few years back, this is nothing new. Many banking institutions support qfx. Often times with quicken releases, there are no dramatic changes between releases, just enough changes to make it look like management is doing something to improve and release a new product. My experience as a quicken user since 1990 has been that it is always best with quicken releases to wait until the first patch release is available before buying. This has become more apparent in the year 2000+ releases. Intuit outsources a lot of their functions overseas, so they lose efficiency and control with their product development and support. While overseas services help improve a balance sheet so the ceo can reap bigger performance bonuses, it often yields lower quality and services in the end.

I find this software to work fantastic for my bank records, investments and really enjoy the budgeting capabilities. I have used both money and quicken. In my honest opinion, either will suit your needs for home finances. I like 2007’s home view, as it gives you a snapshot of where you stand financially for that particular day, and you can look at a graph and see where you’ll be for the month. Getting set up is easy, and entering recurring transactions is pretty simple. The only reason i am giving it 4 stars is that it can get a little bulky when you delve into some of the reports. A little more simplicity, maybe even some cookie cutter reports, would make viewing some of the financial reports a little easier. Overall, if you are not using either quicken or money, you should try one of them out, it really makes life a little easier.

I just upgraded to quicken premier 2007 from quicken 2004. Evidently there have been some serious improvements in the last 3 years. I love the effortless on-line interactions. I now have quicken paying my bills, pulling down (from the internet) my credit card transactions, investment accounts, and bank statements with almost no effort on my part. It really shortens the amount of time i sit and do my household book keeping. I have found this version to be very intuit-ive (pun intended) and powerful.

Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2009 3 User [OLD VERSION] : Quickbooks Pro 2009

We’ve been using quickbooks accounting for five years after using sbt and peachtree. This is our third quickbooks purchase and it meets all expectations for being an excellent accounting software program. My only beef is intuit rescinds support after three years forcing you to ‘upgrade’ (i. Purchase the same basic program for an additional $380 minus two users). Our 2006 pro 5-user operated perfectly fine until we received notices our payroll and email service provided by expire unless you purchase the new product. So i rate the program 5 stars but intuit’s extortionist policies leave much to be desired. I feel they should be forced to disclose to the buyer that they are ‘renting’ their product for three years (or will they shorten to two.

I am bookkeeper for a small business and we were using qb 2006 until this forced upgrade by intuit. We weren’t happy initially because of the cash outlay, ($380 because we need it for 2 users at a time), but our fears were unfounded. It not only works better than 2006, but the install went smoothly and we have had no problems. My 2006 version had been giving me trouble for about the last 6 months and all that is gone now. Qb was freezing and then either shutting down or i had to shut it down using the taskmaster. What a royal pain it had become. 2009 has some nice new features, and overall appears to be a better product than 2006. I use almost all of the reports and am having no trouble at all. I also export a lot because there are limitations to what qb reports will do, and i want more flexibility. I am perfectly satisfied with what it does.

I’ve been using the 2006 version of qbk, also subscribe to their payroll service which costs about $300 / year. Just paid it and a few days later they notify by a message that it will no longer be supported unless we upgrade to the new version. . Isn’t that great?well, fine, i got the new version 2009, which is 3 updates later. I was afraid that after using it for 3 years, we are use to it, don’t want too many changes to it like what msft office did with 2007 version which ruined the whole thing. Installed it, well, it’s suffice to say 2009 is 99. Although i’m glad we didn’t need to relearn everything, but to spend $350 on the same thing kind of sucks. It’s dumb that we pay $350 for a subscription that they stopped supporting. After 3 years, there’s a lot of data built up. Here are the specifications for the Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2009 3 User [OLD VERSION]:

  • Installation wizard helps you setup QuickBooks for multiple users
  • Stay in control and keep your data protected-limit employee access by allowing different levels of permission within your company’s QuickBooks file
  • Instantly communicate with others using your company‚Äôs QuickBooks file with QuickBooks Messenger
  • Run reports while others work simultaneously in the company file
  • Easily switch from multi to single-user mode as needed

I am a cpa and many of my clients use quickbooks. It offers many features for my clients to get their accounting information to me and allows me to make corrections and adjustments and return the changes so that they can update their data without making manual entries. This product also interfaces with turbo tax and lacerte which are tax preparation programs offered by intuit. It is easy to use and only required proper initial setup for a smooth running accounting program.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Quckbooks Pro
  • Excellent/Worth Every Penny
  • Forced to upgrade because QBK will stop support it not

Quickbooks pro 2009we use the 3 user version of quickbooks pro 2009. This is the best upgrade ever and we have been using quick books almost since the first version came out. The new one is faster and eisier to use than any other version.

Overall, this product works great. We upgraded from qb pro 2004 to qb pro 2009 – there was some corruption of data (the balance sheets didn’t balance), but this was easily fixed with the new utilities features. You’ll need a ‘newer’ machine to get decent speed, but again, overall, a great financial accounting product.

Microsoft Money 2004 Deluxe, Money 2004 is a useful tool

I was very pleased to be able to order the microsoft money 2004 as my new computer did not have it and i had used it for many years. I am truly enjoying being able to keep track of my finances with it. Thanks for your prompt delivery.

I just wanted software new enough to store backup files some where other than a floppy drive.

Microsoft Money 2004 Deluxe

  • Save time by going online — Download checking, credit card and other transactions automatically, for faster financial management
  • Manage your investments more effectively, with up-to-the-minute information
  • Achieve financial goals with the built-in planning tools — get out of debt, save for retirement, or prepare for a major purchase
  • Tax time is easier than ever, with the simplified tax tools
  • Also includes complimentary financial services at no extra charge

I use microsoft money 2004 to keep a close eye on my spending habits as well as balance all my accounts. I use the basics because that is all i need.

I only use money to keep up with my checking account and to allow my children to learn budgeting by having their own accounts. This version is easier to move around in and is very helpful to clear up things when i go in the wrong direction.

This program is a good way to keep all of your financial information in one place. I don’t use a lot of the features, but it is worthwhile to have, simply from the point of view of keeping track of checking, savings, and loan balances. I also like the way it allows me to categorize spending, so i can see where my money is being spent. The best part is the ability to download credit card transactions directly. Some of the reports are a bit silly and need a lot of user input to make any sense, but i don’t use the reports too much anyway.

Microsoft Money 2004 Deluxe : I choose this product since i didn’t require (or want) all the extras that now come with microsoft money (e. The 2004 version converted my old version (2000) with no problems. Overall i am quite pleased with the product.

Microsoft Office Accounting Professional 2007 FULL VERSION [OLD VERSION] : Not currently supported – free downloads on web

In my opinion the ability to chage interest to outstnding invoices and issues monthly statements makes the price worth it. So far i have had no bad issues with this application (knock on wood).

+ easy to start using this product, i like user interface+ added custom fields functionality- to create reports with custom fields you have to have word 2003 and up- in payment method no option to use ‘wire transfer’ or ‘debit card’ (you have to write a check or use cash instead)- import of bank files is pointless, you have to type in everything anyways during data matching process- to import transactions or custom fields you have to purchase add-onin general this product is usable, but it requires some improvement.

Have been using one version or the other for years. Here are the specifications for the Microsoft Office Accounting Professional 2007 FULL VERSION [OLD VERSION]:

  • Familiar Office interface and startup wizard makes getting started easy; imports data from Microsoft Excel and Money, and Intuit QuickBooks
  • Seamless integration with Microsoft Office programs for greater efficiency and accuracy
  • Quickly create quotes, sales orders, and customer invoices without transferring information between applications
  • Lets you easily list items for online sales, download orders, and receive payments in real time
  • Accountant Transfer Export Wizard lets you easily share your company’s financial information with your accountant

Accounting professional is not easy to learn how to use. But that is no fault of the program. Its a matter how accounting savoy you are. I recommend this program to businesses that have inventory. Because it provides the required ‘cost of goods sold’ at the end of each year. As of this writing you can buy the 2007 version and upgrade to the 2009 version for free.

I was very happy with this upgrade and the added features.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Microsoft Office have been using one version
  • My Revew
  • A great product

This is just what i was looking for for my business.

I was using an older application to run my small business but because i use microsoft word and outlook, i decide to move to office accounting. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to setup and start using. It works like excel or word (no ribbon though) so you don’t have to learn a new application. I found it easy to create quotes/invoices. I used word to make the quotes & invoices really professional looking with my company logo and color scheme. The real kicker was that i could run my ebay business in office accounting (rather than in excel), it worked really well and the built in paypal invoicing really saved me time. I got rid of my credit card terminal thingy and started using the built in credit card functionality in office accounting which is saving me money. The integration with outlook with business contact manager helps me track my customer interactions and is getting me more repeat business. I wish m$ had included some budgeting so that i could do longer range planning. Overall a good product that has helped me save time and get more business.

Intuit QuickBooks Enhanced Payroll 1-3 Employees 2010 [OLD VERSION], Using Enhanced Payroll is EASY!

Being a small firm – keeping up with ever changing tax laws both state and federal is a massive chore that qb makes effortless. It is like having a full time accountant on staff 24/7.

I have been using this system for the past 6 years and it is great. It is so easy to understand and easy to teach as well. During the past 6 years i have taught 4 other people within my company how to do payroll in case of my absence. I love the feature of telling me which taxes are due and when. Overall this is a great program to help you efficiently run your payroll.

QuickBooks Enhanced Payroll 1-3 Employees 2010 [OLD VERSION]

  • Intuit QuickBooks Payroll Enhanced helps you complete your entire payroll in just a few clicks
  • Automatically calculate payroll taxes and create paychecks in just a few clicks
  • Instantly generates federal and state tax forms for you–use E-File for no additional cost
  • Get started quickly with an easy step-by-step setup guide
  • Easily add more employees as your business grows

We track many details through our payroll that allows us to really see the different expenses in type of labor such as direct and indirect along with 20 different codes. We are able to produce highly effective reports by employee and by job. Payroll is very simple overall. We just opened an office wyoming and the ease of having an out of state employee is wonderful.

We have used quickbooks payroll for many years now. There has never been another product that suited our needs as well as this one. It is easy to learn and use and we are confident our payroll meets all guidelines and rules.

I am very impressed with how intuitive quickbooks is. I have done payroll in very complicated accounting systems and quickbooks is so easy. I was able to set it up by myself and have been up and running for almost 2 years. I would recommend quickbooks to anyone.

QuickBooks Enhanced Payroll 1-3 Employees 2010 [OLD VERSION] : I have been an enhanced payroll user for many years. As a small business it allows me to control my payroll cost but affords the security of knowing my taxes are calculated correctly. With direct deposit i do not have to be physically be here to do payroll. If i am on vacation i can do payroll and have my employees paid on time. They appreciate that as much as i do. This is a very effective way to create accurate payrolls, taxes and allow freedom in my work schedule.

H&R Block At Home 2011 Basic, very good tax preparation software

Doing our taxes worked out just fine. If there were any problems, it was my doing. We didn’t need anything elaborate, so this tax program was just what we needed.

It had a number of errors in the nj state module. Incorrect pension exclusion was a big one.

H&R Block At Home 2011 Basic + State

  • Federal + state tax software for those with simple tax situations
  • Imports last year’s tax data from H&R Block At Home and TurboTax software
  • Customized interview process; easy for first-time users
  • Accuracy Review checks returns to make sure they’re accurate and complete
  • Includes H&R Block tax expertise–plus H&R Block’s maximum refund guarantee

I been using h&r block tax program since the 90’s. To me this is the best and easy to use tax program. I like the price as it is less expensive than turbo tax. As usaul amazon delivered the package quickly.

I’ve used h&r block’s tax software (formerly called taxcut) every year since 1995. Several times when i saw a promotional deal i purchased both taxcut and turbotax to compare. I found that turbotax did not do anything better than taxcut while costing consistently more. In addition, i like the option of being able to file 5 free federal e-files as i do taxes for other relatives who are less computer savvy. H&r block software also wins if compared to the free on-line options. I don’t like using the on-line tax programs for two reasons (1) i don’t want my financial data to be on someone’s web site (2) free offers include the federal tax only. This year i used a digital download for the first time rather than a boxed version. I liked the security of having a physical cd in case i need to re-install on another computer several years down the road. But you are supposed to be able to download the software again to a different computer and when the boxed version was not available i went digital. Registration issuedownloading the software was easy, however during the install i got an error registering the software.

This is the first time i bought this product from amazon, and as always they did not disappoint in delivering it very expeditously. It is a tax program so how excited can one get over that. I have used both turbo tax and tax cut and you choose which one you prefer. My taxes are simple and not involved. My sister who was handling an estate and using the basic copy found that there was a form she needed that was not included in the basic version. So i would suggest you make sure it has the forms you need if you know them before deciding what version you purchase. . It is still a tax program.

H&R Block At Home 2011 Basic + State :

Sage Software Sage Peachtree Premium Accounting 2011 [OLD VERSION] : SAGE 2011

We (a non-profit museum)purchased peachtree premium because it allows us to capture expenses by department with budgets and variances. This was very important for us and peachtree does what we want.

I need to do a bit of bookkeeping for my home business. I’ve used quickbooks for years, but it can’t quite do what i need it to. So, i decided to switch to peachtree. This version is the top of the line that peachtree offers. Of course, it’s the 2011 version and not the new one for 2012 (which costs a couple hundred dollars more). So, i got all the functionality i needed for a small portion of the price of the newer version.

Been using this for a couple of months for a small business, and its great. As in many programs you will need some patience at the beginning;but once you get it running there is so much you can do with this program, reports are endless and very useful.

Key specs for Sage Peachtree Premium Accounting 2011 [OLD VERSION]:

  • Sage Peachtree Premium Accounting 2011 is a comprehensive solution with tools for strategic growth, like multi-company consolidations, advanced budgeting, serialized inventory, and Crystal Reports 2008

Comments from buyers

“Nothing Wrong With Last Year’s Version
, Great for Small Businesses
, We selected Peachtree Premium!

If you do not need the latest features, buying this year’s version rather than next years is an excellent value. In my opinion, it is hard to go wrong with this approach.

Only good for one year, then big price to update. Still basic and easy to use.

Registered online with sage itself. Knew what i wanted so i am please to get it as advertised. As always, amazons price is the best.

Microsoft Money 2006 Deluxe [OLD VERSION] – Seller saved me from frustration

I am currently trying the 90 day free trial for money deluxe 2006. Also, i purchased quicken premier for business 2006 and have returned quicken which has a 60 day return policy. I do like some feautures in each product. Quicken downloads your accounts much quicker then money does. I have a big problem with quicken. I cannot download a qif file. Since my main credit card is in a qif file i cannot track that. So, for me, that alone is a deal breaker and ms money will work with that credit card company. Quicken does have some great online support features but for money i needed to register and couldn’t find the key i needed.

I agree that this software does not provide a significant update to the previous year’s version. It may be worth picking up just because it can be obtained for free with certain deals. I have the standard version on one machine and deluxe on the other. I don’t believe that deluxe is a significant upgrade for most people either. The functionality of the planning software is unfortunately not that great.

This product is great to organize your finances and see where your money is going for. Monthly reports are available to see where your spending your money, and you can get details of how these numbers were comprised. The budgeting system appears weak though, and if you have savings goals it only states whether they are realistic or not. It unfortuntely doesn’t have anything which allows you to put aside money for these savings goals.

Msnmoney discontinued the best stock portfolio in the world but is available with this older money version. Now i am back on track literally keeping track of stocks that i first discovered and how they have performed since. Thanks to cary’s_store on amazon.

  • The Money Bill Calendar lets you see upcoming and paid bills at a glance.

  • Money 2006 Deluxe gives you access to credit scores and percentile rankings and helps assess credit risk levels.

My previous use of the money program was with money 98. And, it wasn’t all that easy to use for a non-accountant type. Money 2006 was even more difficult to understand although i did manage to get it hooked into my bank for on-line updates. One problem is that i could not import my money 98 back up into money 2006. The possiblity may have been there but i could not find it. I would recommend people get the book “microsoft money 2006 for dummies” as i did. Helped me through the jargon, it did.

I like everything about this software program.

I love this software and how it helps me track my expenses.

Intuit QuickBooks Premier Industry Editions 3-User 2014 [Old Version] – Upgrade from 2011

This was yet another forced upgrade from intuit. This is really the only thing that bothers me about this software package. I’ve used quickbooks for 10+ years and it is a great tool for small business accounting. It is very user friendly and very easy to use. We run payroll with direct deposit for 50+ employees out of this program and although 2011 was still functioning fine and serving all our needs, intuit stops supporting any additional functions after 3 years. You have to pay for a payroll subscription on an annual basis ($400+), so ours was still good until december 2014, but we would have been cut off from using it after may 2014. They won’t even sell you additional licenses (you can have up to 5 with premier) after 2 years. I’ve been using the 2014 version for a couple of weeks now and they’ve spruced up the look from 2011 and added some new menu options, but this is otherwise the same program. My only other gripe is that there is still no “undo” button. If you accidently delete something there is no way to quickly fix this, you have to re-enter.

After few days of installation i got an error message on 2 pcs that that some. Dll file got corrupted and to resolve this issue i had to re install the software. Also learned during the process that this is a known issue. However, i do like the new features of 2014 version especially since i upgraded from 2011.

We have 3 users and a server which were updated to 2014. It was not as easy as it should be. The admin password had to be reset several times. The last of which required a 1 hour call to tech support. If you’re going to force us to upgrade every 3 years, at least make it a simpler transparent process.

Program is working perfectly, wished i shopped here for it a year ago.

  • Upgrade from 2011
  • Not much of an improvement
  • Good features but buggy

QuickBooks Premier Industry Editions 3-User 2014 [Old Version]

  • Easy to set up, learn and use
  • Organize everything in one place and save time on everyday tasks
  • Track how your business is doing with one-click financial, tax and sales reports
  • Drill down into the data you need with industry-specific reports and tools
  • Get complete and reliable records at tax time

As always, quickbooks does a good job of many things, but not necessarily great at doing specific things.

I upgraded from quickbooks 2011 and, honestly, there isn’t much difference here. The format it entirely the same with a few cosmetic differences. I’ve also had some issues with the program crashing. This tends to happen the most (about once per month) when processing credit card transactions. They payment will go through, but it won’t record the transaction when this happens, which means you have to make a new transaction to match. Ultimately, this is a good product; it suits our small business’ needs nicely. But, having upgraded, i see why some people wait to years and years before getting the latest version.

Unable to control box size as i did with 2012 qb pro.

Sage Software Peachtree By Sage Complete Accounting 2009 Multi User : Great Upgrade

Installation as an upgrade on a 4 computer xp professional network went very well. There were no surprises and all our reports and forms transferred well. I would recommend the product highly.

I ordered this software to update to peachtree complete 2009, multi-user. After loading onto my service & workstations i called to register the software. I was only given a registration number that was for a single user. Now, only one person can work on peachtree at a time. They did not give me a multi-user registration number. I called when i had trouble with multi-user & was told that this was the only registration number that was available for this program. Now i’m switching to quick books (yuck) where i can have up to 5 users.

Haven’t used as it is a back up only copy, however peachtree is my favorite accounting program. Here are the specifications for the Sage Software Peachtree By Sage Complete Accounting 2009 Multi User:


Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great Upgrade
  • Now Happy with Peachtree
