QuickBooks Online has been around for over a decade and has gained serious momentum over the past few years, due in part to Intuit's marketing and accountant outreach efforts. But is it the right product for you and your clients?

As we all know, QBO is not, nor was it designed to be, simply a web-based version of the desktop product everyone knows and has used for decades. It has its own unique functions, advantages and disadvantages.

But fear not, in this three-part video series, accounting technology guru Greg Lam offers a balanced view of what QBO has and does not have, and why it may or may not be of preferred use for you and the businesses you serve. Part 1 of this series explores some of the more basic functions of the product, the user interface and some of the main differences with QuickBooks desktop.

As ever, these videos are not meant or designed to be promotional in any way, nor are they paid for by the vendor in question. They are meant to offer a balanced view of the product so you can make an informed decision for yours or your clients' use.

Now, let's see what Greg says:

Greg Lam will be a speaker at Accountex USA 2016 in November. AccountingWEB and Accountex have partnered to bring you this content as we share a belief in the furtherment of the profession through greater insights.

there are two more parts to this series which will flesh out the pluses and minuses, ins and outs of the QBO product. Far different from a hosted version of desktop, which again may or may not be the best choice for a firm or client.
