“As QuickBooks evolves we try and evolve at the same pace. We now spend less time inputting data and more time using the data in QuickBooks”
- Tom Carra, Carra Property Group.
Carra Property Group is a family business that develops and invests in property along the Eastern sea board of Australia. Up until 10 years ago the finances were managed using Microsoft Excel®. Tom Carra also clearly recalls using paper account books to manage the finances.“Using financial software is now critical to how we keep track of everything. 10 years ago we installed QuickBooks Pro,” says Tom.

Tom recalls the confusion that has sometime occurred when he and his colleagues have transferred files between each other.“In the past we’ve had some difficult moments when updating files. It has been very easy to get the wrong data file and it would cause a mess.”
