For the first time, the Larimer SBDC will be offering “QuickBooks Online: 3 Part Series” beginning on September 9 and running through September 23. 

While the functionality of QuickBooks Online is very similar to what is offered through their traditional desktop software, they are visually very different. QuickBooks Online also has the advantage of integrating with mobile applications that can be used on both a smartphone and tablet.
Are you confused about whether to use QuickBooks online or QuickBooks Pro (the desktop version)? Ask yourself the following questions:
Do I want to be able to update QuickBooks from multiple devices (computer, smartphone, tablet)? Online
Do I want to pay for the software once and use it for multiple years? Desktop
Do I want my accountant/CPA to be able to log on and immediately fix entries? Online
How much phone support do I need? Unlimited – Online; Pay for extra – Desktop
Do I want to have the latest features automatically? Online
Do I want to have permanent record continuity, even if I change software? Desktop

There are many more factors that should go in to choosing the right software for your business, and for a more complete breakdown of the differences in features, see the detailed list directly from Intuit.
Our upcoming “QuickBooks Online: 3 Part Series” (September 9, 16 & 23; 1:00 – 5:00 pm) will cover what QuickBooks Online can do for you. You will learn how to back up your system, navigate through the program, and a brief overview of setting up a sample company. Other topics include:
Managing your checkbook
Handling credit card payments
Reconciliation of accounts
Accounts payable & accounts receivable
Analyzing your financials by using reports 
This class is perfect for the person who has never used the program or is within their first year of use. It will be presented by Kirsten Woy, a Certified QuickBooks Pro Advisor and held at the Digital Workshop.
