Quickbooks Repair Pro’s enterprising software calls for a quick, worry-free conversion process

Brandon, MB -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/17/2018 -- For years QuickBooks and Peachtree (now Sage 50) have been the gold standard in small business accounting software. QuickBooks holds 89 percent of the small business accounting software market in the United States.

Converting Peachtree to QuickBooks is sometimes done to simplify the process of managing data on both software, while at other times, users would simply want to migrate data from one software to another.

"Determining which one is suited for you, depends on many factors. By far, QuickBooks seems to be the overall more attractive and easier to use, and they have a Mac version. QuickBooks also has an online version that is quite affordable, but limited and more appropriate for home finances, "said Diane McDonald, Technical Services Manager at E-Tech.

Although the QuickBooks Conversion Tool within the QuickBooks accounting program completes most technical procedures during the Sage 50 to QuickBooks conversion process, it can sometimes prove to be a nine day wonder. "The tool appears to manifest certain technical glitches," according to McDonald.

E-tech offers an industry-standard Sage 50/Peachtree to Quickbooks Premier, Pro, Accountant, Enterprise, or Quickbooks Online conversion. "The conversion service will audit the results to ensure all financial reports such as theTrial Balance, Profit and Loss, and Balance sheets in Quickbooks will exactly match the original Sage 50/Peachtree data."

What is not converted:

- Bank Reconciliation (You will need to do a single bank reconciliation after the conversion. We will send you instructions to do this.)

- Paychecks are converted as Journal Entries (Importing Paychecks is not supported by Quickbooks)

- Employee YTD information

- Individual employee wage or deduction information

- Custom templates

- Jobs are not attached to transactions

- Budgets

- Fixed Asset Items (This is only applicable if your Sage 50 data file is linked to Sage 50 Fixed Assets)

- Work Tickets

- Closed or partially closed Sales Orders, Purchase Orders, and Estimates

After the conversion, E-Tech will send back a Quickbooks backup file that will restore into a new Quickbooks file on the relevant computer. The company will also send a detailed post-conversion checklist, while also sending a report of transactions that failed to import.
