Recommending Enterprise not only allows growth, increases security enhancements but also adds many more features than found in Pro & Premier for your client. In addition to being a Rockstar Advisor to your client you also have the opportunity to earn commission on Enterprise as a CBG Partner. Read about QuickBooks financial desktop software options to learn more about Enterprise here.

QuickBooks Enterprise is the only one that got the cool update of being able to schedule a single user mode logout. User roles are not customizable in Pro/Premier and they only offer you 8! In Enterprise you can customize user roles and access up to hundreds of options so that financial information can be confidential. Enterprise is the only edition with advanced reporting feature. Don’t forget that Enterprise Gold includes enhanced payroll with NO EXTRA FEES! Yes, direct deposit is FREE for your payroll. Enterprise can handle larger file as Pro/Premier have the same file size limitations and start to have performance issues when exceeding file size of 100,000K or more.
