Every year Intuit releases a new version of Quickbooks and Quicken. So far I haven’t noticed much of any actual improvements and I think most people don’t want or need to upgrade bookkeeping software.
This doesn’t fit into Intuits own financial plan. Intuits goal is to have their customers rebuy their barely updated software yearly. The problem is their customer base is bookkeepers, thrifty, and budgeting.
So what does Intuit do to solve this problem? They force their customers to upgrade by intentionally making their previous file formats obsolete.
Intuit and Quickbooks sucks. Don’t take it from me checkout the reviews left by their customers on amazon. Intuit thinks somehow if the push out a new version of their products and show a feature list that is basically identical to their previous versions somehow no one will notice. They are wrong and people are looking for an alternative to Quickbooks.
