One of the major advantages to using software created by a large company like Intuit is that it has the research-and-development resources to continually evolve the software based on technological advances as well as customer demand – making QuickBooks 2014 simple to use even by those who know little about formal accounting methodologies. Plus, accountants are accustomed to working with QuickBooks files, which makes it easy for them to assist with your business taxes.
QuickBooks Pro can more than satisfy the requirements of most small businesses. All the basic modules are included to manage common tasks such as general accounting, payroll, banking, inventory, customer management, time and job billing, and vendor and purchase orders. Compatible add-ons are available for processing credit cards, processing direct deposits and point-of-sale.
From The Top Credit Card Machines and Terminals:
The Nurit 8020 is a widely used wireless terminal in the processing market, and for good reason. Produced by Nurit, the company itself was bought by VeriFone, but VeriFone wisely continued the Nurit line, including the 8020 and its predecessor the Nurit 8000.
Wireless terminals in general can be tricky and are less reliable than countertop machines. They run into all kinds of problems with wireless service in some areas, much like a cell phone, and the initial wireless setup can be problematic if you are reprogramming your machine to a new processor (as opposed to just buying it new and having your new processor program it and send it to you).
That said, the 8020 is easily the simplest wireless terminal to work with. Using the NOS (Nurit Operating System) the terminal is fairly intuitive and easy to work with. It comes with a built in printer and an external modem that plugs into the machine so it can be plugged into a phone line for downloads and telephone transactions when wireless access is not available but a phone line is. The terminal also comes with a store and forward mode, so if you cannot receive wireless reception and have no access to a phone line you can run your transactions and they will be stored in the terminal until you get wireless access (or access to the phone line) and upload the transactions. Additionally, the 8020 can use a multi merchant feature and can be internally encrypted, so your customer can use their pin/debit card even if you don’t have a pinpad.
The operation of the terminal has the standard Nurit intuitiveness that makes their terminals so simple to use. The text on the screen is clear, the menus are fairly straight forward, and searching for the menu option you’re looking for is easy. In addition to the standard keypad the 8020 has a touch screen that can be used with a stylus.
One serious warning, however, comes with trying to take it apart for any reason (with the exception of the battery cover that is). If this occurs, it will set off an internal sensor that will lock the device permanently.
