I'm new to this software, but I've been running it parallel with Account Edge until the beta expired, then purchased it about a month ago. I like it A LOT! The workflow is much better, with more sophisticated solutions of managing and tracking services. The analysis is more intuitive and clear, easier to setup, and useful (which is the point right?)

I'm VERY disappointed with Account Edge, and the new version for 2012 is just another $159 upgrade that should be free.

I suggest downloading the demo and trying it out first. There is a MYOB migration application on their webpage to help us out, but it wasn't completely useful for me. I was quite taken by the speed, and I'm not feeling that there should be more features missing (like I do with AccountEdge).

Good luck fellow travelers...

I've been looking for a solution to replace quickbooks and found this gem. After evaluating several solutions this one was the best for our needs however trying to purchase it has been a different experience. Has anyone purchased it lately? I've tried to purchase this over the last week or so. I ordered it from buy.com, amazon.com, eCost and a couple others. All of them have canceled my order within 24 hours stating that they are out of stock and that the product is no longer available from the manufacturer. Is there a new version coming out, is this a warning sign that I should choose a different solution, or something else entirely? Has anyone else had this experience?

I downloaded the demo, then made the purchase directly from their website (no physical copy mailed). Has been a great experience so far. I officially transition my photography studio over to it in January of 2012.

The major factors in my recommendation of this accounting software versus any other currently available are:

a)Cross-Platform full functionality (that is, the Mac and Windows versions offer the exact same experience)

b)Multiple Company Management (perfect for multi-tiered small businesses, especially those that operate online)

c)Multiple Currencies (again, brilliant for those who conduct business online)

...and of course, the "Free Copy For Your Accountant" offer, which will finally put an end to costly data migrations and/or endless excuses from your accountant!

The TCO (total cost of ownership) per year across all editions of MoneyWorks is - as they say on the website - a great deal less than the competition (this is especially true of the Gold Edition). And the learning-curve is absoutely transparent, making book-keeping far more intuitive than either MYOB or Quicken ever managed to.

Put simply, MoneyWorks is the only fully-featured accounting software on the market today that won't make you cringe evey time you think of making an entry!

And even more points to the crew at Cognito for including fully localized data that caters to all of us in the "forgotten countries" (Australia, NZ, Canada etc)!

I couldn't be happier with this software - I've been using it since version 5 and haven't found a serous flaw yet!

Could someone tell me if it's possible to turn a quote raised in Moneyworks into an invoice? As far as i can see, it can only be made into a Sales Order.

Fantastic program - easier to use than MYOB or Quicken. Technical support is responsive, friendly and helpful. Program is stable and feature-full. Only criticism I can muster is that it lacks a 'Wages/Salary' calculation section, like MYOB has (wages and their complicated sliding-scale taxes have to be calculated and entered manually).

Still better value than any other accounting package I've come across.

I switched from being a QB user on windows to Moneyworks when I moved platform to the Mac. QB is not available for Mac in the UK. I'm so glad it is not - this program is 1000% better than QB. It is really fast. I personally think the UI is very elegant, and the support so far has been pretty good. I got emailed directly from a real person on a saturday when I had a problem registering. It's still early days, but so far, very happy indeed.

It is a pity the previous reviewer did not concentrate on the positive aspects of the program which is exceedingly feature rich compared to QB. Does the reviewer want a program that performs superbly or one that looks nice?

It's too bad this isn't a cocoa app. The user interface uses many small font's that just look ugly on OSX. Functionality wise, it seems pretty complete and the UI is well designed but it does suffer for being to modal (you can't go to another window when some of the detail windows are open). The English that is used is a little non standard (for Americans). The GL only works with numbered accounts. There are some quirks with reporting. I think the price is fairly high considering that Quickbooks sells for less and all the accountants in the US are used to QB.
