You can cross check data by creating reports such as balance sheets, trial balance and so on. Reconciliation statements are one such tool in the hands of accountants for tackling double entry of data. Other features of QuickBooks include
Support for Multiple Monitors
While most accounting software support only one monitor at a time, QuickBooks supports 3 monitors. The feature was introduced on request of many users. If you work on large amount of accounting data or are involved in managing books for clients, then you will surely appreciate this feature.
Instead of working with each transaction and form separately, users now have the option to perform specific tasks on multiple transactions. This will boost the efficiency of you and your fellow accountants.
