Some Enterprise users find themselves wishing they could jump down to Premier or Pro without having to start over a new company. Why? Mostly because newer versions of Enterprise require you to subscribe and pay for the Enterprise software monthly or annually. Premier and Pro editions are not licensed that way.

That’s where Enterprise Downgrade Service comes in. Here’s what a few former-Enterprise users have to say about their experience in migrating down from Enterprise.

I was a little concerned about downgrading from Quickbooks Enterprise to Premier.  Concerned about losing data.  AccountingUsers made the process very easy and very successful.  It was simple to create a portable file which I uploaded to them and then they provided instructions how to install that data into the new Premier program.  The turnaround time to accomplish this was quick also so I did not have to worry about adding a lot of information on my own that was done in QuickBooks between the time I sent them the file and they returned it to me.  Great job.”

The downgrade process to QB Premier from Enterprise was fabulous.  I was able to speak with someone right away, send my file easily, and get it back the NEXT DAY……though I had been told it might be 3 days.  And nothing was amiss….Thank you so much!”
— Courtney Campell, CPA, PA

So far, soooo good!  It looks like all of our data converted, and I am able to access 12 of the 13 reports that I previously accessed in Enterprise.  I am both thankful and impressed!  I will let you know if I have any questions as I learn more in Premier.

Never having done this before I was a little concerned about contacting a company, off the internet, who would be looking at our company documents. There are many bogus companies and websites out there. But when I called QuickbookUsers.com I reached Shannon right away – no waiting on hold for a long period of time, no multiple transfers and no automated menus with multiple choices and layers to reach a live person. Shannon explained the process.  I purchased the service and I did receive the portable file in the 2 days specified. Not being a savvy computer person I had to follow up with questions.  Shannon answered all of them and patiently helped me through my ignorance on certain aspects of the computer world.  We uploaded the file to our computer and everything went smoothly.  There were no hitches or problems of any kind. I highly recommend QuickbookUsers.com if you need to downgrade a QB file to a simpler version.”

Please follow and like us:

Sometimes folks find themselves in a place they don’t want to be. Using QuickBooks Enterprise, for instance.

We have talked to people with these scenarios:

* They were given a free copy of Enterprise a year ago, and have entered lots of data. But now they need to pay for support, and the Enterprise support is more than they want to pay.

* They were using Pro or Premier. Then they outsourced their bookkeeping for awhile and their outside bookkeeper converted their file from Pro or Premier to Enterprise. Now they are taking the books back in-house, but don’t own an Enterprise license.

* They were sold Enterprise. But they don’t really need the extra horsepower that Enterprise provides. Their operation would be just as well handled by Pro or Premier.

In situations like these, people sometimes feel stuck. You can upgrade a company data file from Pro or Premier to Enterprise within QuickBooks, but you can’t go back. Well, not within QuickBooks anyway.

But in actuality, you can downgrade your edition. Your company data file can be downgraded from Enterprise to Pro or Premier.

How does it work? You send your existing Enterprise file to us over a secure internet connection. We convert the file from Enterprise to the edition of your choice: Pro or Premier. We send you the converted file back to you over the same secure internet connection.

You can restore the file in your edition of Pro or Premier and all the information will be there. It will be as if that file had been created in Pro or Premier in the first place. All your user data, memorized reports and transactions, customer, vendor, payroll detail and all the rest will be in place.

This can save thousands of dollars in incremental support costs every year.

Alternatively, you can create a new company in Pro or Premier, and then export data from Enterprise and import it into Pro or Premier. You can use the export/import tools from within QuickBooks to do bring over lists, or 3rd party export/import tools to bring over some transactions too.

Getting your file downgraded, however, is the turnkey approach.
