There are well over 4 million QuickBooks users in the country and most do not use the product correctly. There are so many great resources available to learn how to use QuickBooks including online videos, QuickBooks ProAdvisor, and even formal classroom training in most community colleges.
Courses available at community colleges are a great way to learn not only how to use QuickBooks, but also to learn about sound business practices from the professor. This is one of the most important considerations for companies looking for help with QuickBooks as it marries the functional side of QuickBooks to the practical side of managing a business effectively – something that some QuickBooks training fails to provide.
