Fix QuickBooks performance issues by reaching out to our team of certified QuickBooks experts. Performance is important when users care about efficiency. Work can be substantially affected due to the slow performance of the system. There are specific methods to speed up the system if the cause is QuickBooks. All of these methods have been listed in this article.
QuickBooks System Requirements
If you are running QuickBooks on your personal system or even a server, then you need to at least have the minimum system requirements. Still, running QuickBooks on minimum system requirements will always be slow. The memory will be very limited tothe minimum requirement and hence performance will be compromised.
The recommended system requirements have been provided below:
- At least 8 GB of RAM.
- Core i5 Processor.
- 10GB of free disk space.
These system specifications will provide you with a great accounting experience. Your system will run smoothly even if you are actively working on other software. If you have other heavy applications open beside QuickBooks, then you can upgrade your RAM further to facilitate this.
QuickBooks Huge Company File
The size of the company file is proportional to the amount of financial data you store in it. Once a lot of data has been saved into a single company file, it will start creating a performance issue for the user. To understand this, you can simply imagine the memory in the system as an empty glass. When you open QuickBooks and launch a huge company file, this glass will overflow with the amount of data.
This is why the memory fills up leaving little for other applications and software to run properly. Our QuickBooks help team can deal with the problem in the following manner:
- Receive the company file from the user via a VPN.
- Create multiple divisions of the company file.
- Send these divisions back to the user.
- Help the user in importing the files into QuickBooks.
Now, you have the option to launch only that company file with which you want to work. Hence, redundant data will not be loaded and you will have ample memory to work with.
Full System Scan
Usually, users have malicious software infecting their system due to which the performance is affected. By performing a full system scan, you identify and remove such software. There are some new malware and ransomware out that infect the network and server of a system. These can be a bit more difficult to remove. We at RepairContact have access to latest security software through which we can secure your entire system.
QuickBooks Accounting Software
The best thing about QuickBooks is that it is a customizable accounting software. When working with other software, you don’t usually have a lot of customization options. QuickBooks not only enables users to customize their plans of purchase but also features like reports. Once customized, a report can be used to get drilled down analysis of the financial data in both tabular and graphical form.
