Premier can run more than 150 industry-specific reports that can help you personalize your finances. Enterprise has industry-specific editions that are completely tailored to specific sectors. These include options for:
- Professional services
- Wholesale and distribution
As an example, the manufacturing and whole distribution editions come with features like barcode scanning and enhanced pick, pack and ship. Meanwhile, the contractor edition lets you track job costs across projects to make sure your work is profitable. The Premier reports can help you see this with a little work, but the Enterprise editions make it more seamless.
Overall, both QuickBooks Premier and QuickBooks Enterprise are powerful solutions for small businesses. For most businesses that don’t deal with many locations, clients and an overwhelming inventory, QuickBooks Premier will be more than enough. However, for businesses that have more employees, products or projects, QuickBooks Enterprise can make tracking everything much easier.
