QuickBooks vs ZipBooks for Manufacturing

You know better than anyone that technology moves fast and that it’s essential to keep up with the competition. In fact, QuickBooks Online was only created because Intuit needed to keep up with their competition or be left behind.

QuickBooks was actually designed to be a desktop program for Microsoft users—so if your manufacturing business is cloud based, you were out of luck, until now. Meet ZipBooks.

A QuickBooks Alternative That Helps You Beat the Competition

Chances are, you were searching for QuickBooks because you need an accounting solution to manage your entire business, but QuickBooks can only be installed on one computer, meaning you can’t collaborate with your team or view your account on multiple devices.

With ZipBooks, not only can you add multiple users and access your company’s finances from anywhere, but your free account also includes all the features your business needs to be successful:

Faster Payouts – You don’t have time to wait weeks to get paid after you invoice an order. With ZipBooks, your days of waiting are over. Control which payment options to accept. You can connect your Stripe or PayPal account, accept credit cards, and get payouts straight to your bank account in as little as two business days.

Unlimited Invoices – You process a lot of orders, meaning you need an accounting solution that offers unlimited invoices for an unlimited number of customers. And don’t worry about spending too much time on admin tasks—ZipBooks built-in invoice templates make it easy to customize and send invoices in just a few clicks.

Effortless Bookkeeping – ZipBooks makes it easy to track profitability by product, track balances, and categorize transactions by product, accounts receivable, or any other category your business needs. Time for a board meeting? Easily generate spending and profit reports in just a few clicks.

Fewer Fees – We don’t have to tell you that QuickBooks is expensive, and if you need extra customer service or added features, you can expect even more fees. With ZipBooks, you’ll never pay for a monthly subscription or any fees for customer service.

ZipBooks Was Built for Convenience

We know you’re skeptical of the word “free.” How can we offer a custom invoice and accounting tool for free? Well, simply because we’ve been there. We know how painful it is to make every invoice from scratch and hunt down checks when your customers don’t pay on time, so we created an app that automated the painful parts of business ownership.

In addition to faster payouts, anytime access, and free invoices, you’ll also get access to a variety of other features with your ZipBooks account:

Auto-billing – Have clients with recurring orders? Set up auto-billing so you never have to remember to send that monthly invoice ever again. And yes, it’s free.

Accept Credit Card Payments – You know that you get paid faster when your customers can pay by card, so ZipBooks allows you to accept any payment method you choose, including credit cards, PayPal, or Stripe.

Automatic Payment Reminders – Tired of sending awkward emails when your customers payments are overdue? Let ZipBooks handle it. Easily setup auto-reminders and never get paid late again.

Integrated Accounts – ZipBooks lets you connect your bank account so you can categorize expenses and stay on top of your balances. And when it’s tax time, generating incomer reports by quarter is a breeze.

Your free ZipBooks account makes handling all of your manufacturing business’ finances a breeze, but if you find you need additional help, ZipBooks also offers bookkeeping and tax prep services at affordable rates. So go ahead, create your free ZipBooks account today and see how easy business accounting can be. QuickBooks who?
