It also had an inventory module if you elect to use it. It calculates cost vs sales and maintains a record of profit by each job and in cumulative numbers.
Does the inventory module of QuickBooks require separate licensing or a subscription? I know their Payroll module does. Just curious as it may be a budget issue for some small operations. The reason I am asking is that we are considering using QuickBooks. So far we just use Quicken to track our cash flow.
