Using QuickBooks

The journey to becoming an expert in using QuickBooks can be shortened by investing a small amount in QuickBooks training.

Learning how to use QuickBooks can be accomplished using many methods. Each takes an investment of time, some requiring less time than others.  Most methods do have a cost but will provide a relative savings in time and reduced errors. And  we all understand how errors in bookkeeping and accounting can come at a much higher cost than any training program. 

This article reviews alternative learning methods as well as providing links throughout this website for free or low cost QuickBooks help.

QuickBooks is an intuitive based bookkeeping system.  Open any form (check, invoice, bill, etc) and understand (without any training) about 70% of all the required input fields.  The problem most of us have when beginning with QuickBooks is determining which form is appropriate for a specific transaction and where does the information land once you click on the save button.  Once a transaction is saved, determining which of the many reports will provide the information you need is another challenge. After gaining an understanding of the different basic transaction types,  learning how to deal with special transactions, how to reduce your efforts in data entry, how to make your office run more efficiently, and how to gather and extract the information that will help you make better business decisions become the next hurdle.

So where to begin? Which training methods work best?

Purchase QuickBooks software:
Sifting through the eleven different variations of the software can be a confusing task.
Our QuickBooks software site will guide you through the QuickBooks selection process (in the right margin of this webpage follow the links and if you need more information, click on the links in the right margin for more detail). In a nutshell, if QuickBooks offers a version for your industry, buy it.  The incremental cost is negligible compared to the superior help menus and the added features that come with the program. If budgets are a problem, try to squeeze out enough for QuickBooks Pro,   and install,   familiarize yourself with the menu options. Don't be afraid of clicking your way through the software to see what happens.  Go ahead and enter transactions, and if they are not right, delete them and try again. QuickBooks is so flexible that any set-up errors or data entry mistakes can be readily corrected at any time in your use of the software.  Plus QuickBooks comes with sample company files complete with at least one year of transactional data that you can play around with while you learn.
