New Version Of Quickbooks Enterprise Is All Grown Up

Intuit Quickbooks Enterprise 7.0 arrives with a boatload of new features and a new maturity.

Intuit QuickBooks Enterprise 7.0 arrives with a boatload of features to streamline sales order cycles and administrate 20 concurrent users with separate configurations. The product is showing many signs of maturity, especially in security and materials management.

QuickBooks Enterprise has a new set of roles, templates and permissions. The user permission options are highly configurable and can be restricted down to the bank account level. A typical configuration can allow users to create and modify but not delete or print.

For instance, a user account can be set for a partial activity access to the employee center, which allows users to add and modify any employee information, but at the same time restrict rights to view payroll data. Essentially, the new permissions can maintain and secure sensitive information without hindering everyday job functions.

QuickBooks Enterprise now allows users to set up multiple units of measure that can arbitrarily track any custom measurement. For instance, users can set a unit of measure of large metal rolls of wire measured in bulk while tracking its use in feet. As wire is cut, QuickBooks Enterprise is able to keep track of the size of the bulk units. In fact, it can track any unique set of units at every stage in the sales cycle, allowing businesses to buy in one unit, sell in another, and ship in a separate one.

Setting up units of measurement is easy using a new wizard, which takes users step-by-step through preselected units and conversions. Users also can set custom conversions and unique names for each unit type. In addition, QuickBooks Enterprise has streamlined views of each job function so that users can quickly pick visual cues on what they need to do next. In the sales order fulfillment sheet, users can see all outstanding orders and ship dates, including a color-coded fulfillment column that tracks inventory. The colors help users quickly decide on order fulfillment.

Version 7.0 also arrives with a set of new videos in its learning center, which can walk users through the features, including account setup and controlling user access.

QuickBooks Enterprise is $3,000 for five users. ProAdvisor partners receive unlimited priority technical support and unlimited live support. The ProAdvisor program costs $449 for the first year and $399 for renewals. Solution providers can receive up to a 25 percent discount when they bundle the software with their own professional services.
