QuickBooks for Linux

As a Linux user, you can appreciate well-designed software even when it may not be completely in the mainstream yet. QuickBooks is software that is not going to work well for Linux because it was designed for Windows users.

In the last couple of years, and as a response to competitive pressures, QuickBooks was forced to make an online version of their accounting software available, but it was never built with online users in mind.

Now compare that to ZipBooks. We started working on ZipBooks in 2015, and it was built to be web-based accounting program that could work on any modern browser. Beyond that, you can probably appreciate the fact that we are using the latest technology.
