We are honored to have a guest blog post from Carrie Kahn of Complete Business Solutions, an Intuit Reseller Partner. Read below for a great success story on how Carrie was able to save one of her clients some money.
If you are like me, you are always looking for ways to get a deal on everything you purchase. Every time I shop, I research to find out if there is a way to save money by comparing prices online. We work extremely hard to stay the top product experts for QuickBooks Software so we can recommend the best solutions to small business owners and save them money in the process.
We have discovered a hidden discount opportunity that we call a “Golden Opportunity.” Many customers are not aware that it exists. We are able to save our customers money when bundling products together they already use. A perfect example of this is the Cable company. If you just buy the cable package you pay high rates, but when you bundle the telephone and internet with your cable plan then you save a huge amount rather than paying separately for each.
Now, QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions Gold Edition comes with QuickBooks Enhanced Payroll and it’s a little known fact that there are no extra fees and Direct Deposit is Free! You can save over $1000 a year when purchasing QuickBooks Software with Enhanced Payroll by migrating to QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions Gold Edition.
In the case below, we highlight a Customer who uses 1 user QB Premier:
Customer is a Senior Citizens Center that is also Non-Profit. They are very price sensitive. Since they have a payroll subscription, they are required to stay on a supported version of QuickBooks. They needed to update their software.
They also have a current QuickBooks Enhanced Payroll subscription that they use to run a bi- weekly payroll with 35 employees which was costing them an average of $175 per month.
In addition, this customer has a file size of 219,336K, which is more than double what is recommended for premier. What happens when you have a data file that is too large is that you experience slowness and are at risk for data corruption.
Finally, upon review of their account we found they were in a support subscription they didn’t use but were paying for. In fact, they had no idea that they had signed up for this.
QuickBooks Enterprise can handle a file size up to 1,000,000K. By bundling the payroll, they had a total Savings of $1056.00 each year.
For half of what what they were paying for the payroll alone per month, they migrated to a software designed to hold a larger data file, for $87 per month. They also were refunded any unused portions of their subscriptions for payroll and overseas support.
