If you are currently using QuickBooks® and you need more functionality with various levels of control for user permissions, advanced inventory management and manage your payroll and time tracking, you don’t want to miss this. Different industry editions offer customized reports and features designed for your industry while keeping your data accessible with hosting for remote access. You may benefit from the flexibility of QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise 21.0.

There are four different subscription levels in Enterprise which have more capacity than QuickBooks Online Pro and Premier can offer for companies growing in size or complexity. These features vary between QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise Silver at the most basic level, followed by Gold while features increase with the Platinum and Diamond levels. You can transition seamlessly up from Pro or Premier just like any other upgrade.

User Control and Permission Levels

Enterprise supports from 1 up to 40 individual users and multiple users can work simultaneously. Enterprise gives you more control over user permissions than any other version of QuickBooks and more power to customize user roles. There are 14 predefined roles that make it easy to set up and maintain controls. Your staff will see everything they need to succeed while letting you control or limit user access to only specific data, transactions, and reports. A single role can be assigned to multiple users. If you decide a certain role needs more or less access, just change the role and it will be automatically updated for every user assigned to it.

Advanced Reporting

Enterprise has more than 200 built-in, industry-specific, customizable reports that can easily be

tailored to your business needs to make your financial analysis easier and more robust. Find the right report fast with template reports and Chart of Accounts for manufacturing and wholesale/distribution, contractors, nonprofits, professional services, and retail. Use autofill to save time with your company data and plan with budgeting and forecasting tools. Reporting has never been easier and more accurate.

Advanced Inventory

Enterprise Advanced Inventory helps you automate inventory management functionality and order management from the warehouse and see accurate order fulfillment. You can scan barcodes, track items to specific bins within a warehouse, and more. With multiple locations, you can see how many items are on hand and QuickBooks will automatically calculate which items you need to restock to keep costs down to protect your profit margins.

Pricing Management

Enterprise gives you control over your pricing, markups, margins, and automates your pricing right from within QuickBooks letting you execute strategies to meet your business goals with ease. With Platinum and Diamond subscriptions there is an Advanced Pricing module included which adds even more customizations. Plus create and apply multiple rules that change prices automatically from promotions to discounts and special prices for loyal customers.
