The internet is filled with hatred of QuickBooks. After doing much of the hating myself I realize now that people do not hate the program because of what the program can’t do; they hate QuickBooks because the program discourages them in small ways at every opportunity. Using QuickBooks is like wading three miles through a swamp to pay your taxes. If you took away half of the options and removed the unwanted spontaneous advertising you would have a nice program.
I had the above thought yesterday as I looked for a missing payment in QuickBooks. Today I listened to Andrew Warner interview Allen Branch of Less Accounting on Mixergy. Coincidence? Yes, but a happy coincidence. Less Accounting seems to have just the features that I, small business owner, would use in an accounting program, and nothing else. The price for what I need seems to be steep, (considering I’ve already bought QuickBooks, but that is a sunk cost) but I suppose if it freed up time and energy the program would pay for itself in short order.
Does anyone have any experience with Less Accounting?
