QuickBooks Pro – desktop

The desktop version of QuickBooks Pro works very well for congregations because:

  • It is versatile; it can be adapted to most any organization.
  • It handles necessary fund accounting very easily.
  • It works easily and accurately for people with no bookkeeping .experience (important for volunteer treasurers and part-time staff).  No knowledge of “debits and credits” or “general journal entries” is needed.
  • It is inexpensive (the current non-profit price via TechSoup is $78 once every three years).
  • It can be combined with remote access (Splashtop, LogMeIn, Windows Remote Access, etc.) to provide access for multiple staff/lay leaders.
  • It can provide financial reports and itemized detail to lay leaders in only a few minutes.
  • It is very commonly known, so the next treasurer or staff member can step in without significant software training.
