- Email Subject can include Customer PO
Intuit has introduced the capability of including the PO field in the email subject line. The Purchase Order details add context to the email sent by a business making it easy to track for users. The PO field can be modified from the menu bar by clicking on Edit>Preferences>Send Forms> Company Preferences. The template can be edited by clicking on Insert Field> Customer-PO-No.
- Sending Customers Batch Invoices
It is now possible to send multiple invoices together from the same email. The feature is particularly beneficial as the number of emails that have to be sent will be drastically reduced. To enable this option, select File from Menu and then click on Send Forms. Click on “Combine forms to a recipient in one email” to finish the process.
- Set up automatic payment reminders
The payment process can be streamlined by setting up payment reminders for customers. This can be done by creating mailing lists and adding customers to them. The Schedule Payment Reminders option can be used to set up reminders. The final step is to use the Review & Send Payment Reminders to despatch the reminders.
- Usability improvements
Intuit has focused on improving the overall usability of the product. Apart from the ability to expand and collapse columns that was not available in the previous versions, it is also much easier to search company files even it is accessed from network drives or removable devices.
- Exclusive QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise features
While the above features are common to QuickBooks Desktop Pro, Premier, Accountant, and Enterprise, some features are unique to QuickBooks Enterprise.
Landed Cost Calculation is a handy feature that helps businesses calculate product costs more efficiently. It also includes a feature that helps identify alternate vendors with all the information available on a unified portal.
The last notable feature is Express Pick-pack. This feature unifies the picking, packing and shipping workflows.
While there are several other features like Smart Help, Easy Payroll Setup with Employee Self-setup that have been integrated into the new QuickBooks Enterprise, what doesn’t change is that QuickBooks Enterprise hosting as a Desktop as a Service solution is a much more potent solution.
