Hi all, Well, I'll start with the question and then fill in the details. The question is, for a small business, would I be better off with QuickBooks Pro or FileMaker Pro? I've been reading really, really bad things about QuickBooks on the Mac and Inuit's less-than-proper attention to the Mac. I've not seen too many bad comments about FileMaker Pro, and I see you can download a free "Small Business" set of templates and databases. Background: We are acquiring an existing business, which expands/extends our current business. We will keep an inventory of some 100 items and take orders over the phone/fax or via internet either for the items or the item plus customization/personalization work (item + service). So our basic needs are for: Inventory tracking, Sales/Order tracking, Billing, Vendor ordering/paying, customer info/tracking, and shipping (plus 'fancier' stuff like Cost-of-goods sold, ROI, inventory turnover, taxes would be nice). We do this with our simple tools now, but we've only got a handful of products. Now we're talking about 100 items and 5 to 10 vendors. The person we are getting the business from is using QuickBooks 5 on a Mac. We have an eMac and an old PowerMac G3 desktop (which I'm thinking we will replace with a new iMac or something). On our G3, we have a way old version of FileMaker (like, v3 or something) and no version of QuickBooks. But the old FileMaker does a nice job of keeping orders and inventory (2 different databases though... not integrated). So, as we kick the business into high gear, I was going to buy QuickBooks Pro, but now I'm concerned based on what I've read. So, if anyone is using FileMaker and/or QuickBooks for their business . I'd LOVE to hear your opinions. Thanks!
