Accounting Software Comparison: Xero, QuickBooks, Sage Intacct

Selecting an accounting software solution is one of the most important decisions you will make for your organization. Understanding your financial status allows you to make informed decisions. Leveraging technology allows you to save time and money, reduce errors, and respond quickly to key stakeholders and changing market factors.

Popular entry-level solutions such as cloud-based Xero and QuickBooks are the first solutions for the vast majority of organizations. These solutions have served us well and often for a good many years. But if you are growth-oriented, at some point, you will outgrow these solutions.

Northern California-based Unalp CPA Group in their work with nonprofit found that most organizations had the same questions:

• How do Xero, QuickBooks, and Sage Intacct compare?
• When is it time to graduate from Xero and QuickBooks?
• Which solution is the best fit for my organization – today and in the future?

“Given the frequency with which we’re asked these questions, we decided an eBook would provide value to the beginning stages of a nonprofit’s software selection process,” said Jeff Unalp, CPA and founder of Unalp CPA Group.

“Our CPA firm uses Xero, Quickbooks, and Sage Intacct – so we thought we were in a good position to comment on strengths and weaknesses,” said Unalp.

Comparing Xero, QuickBooks and Sage Intacct‘ was written by Jeff Unalp, President of Unalp CPA Group, who primarily uses Xero and Sage Intacct in his practice with contributions from Penny Breslin, who uses both QuickBooks Online (QBO) and Xero in her consultant practice.

The white paper compares pricing, functionality, ease of use, and more. It also includes screenshots and survey information.
