Peachtree to Quickbooks migration

We are currently using Sage 50 Peachtree for all of our accounting needs, but the finance department is thinking about switching to Quickbooks. Has anyone ever made this switch? Is there any reason not to? Any striking reasons to do it? One feature that they absolutely have to have is the job costing feature since they use that for all of their different rentals to show cost and profit of each of them. Is there a simple way to convert our Sage company information and files into whatever Quicken uses? Thank you!

I have not done this as I have always used QuickBooks (and for a long time). You probably need to look at a third party conversion tool. I do not know of any native QB method to do this.

I have found that Quickbooks does offer a conversion tool. Instructions for it can be found here.  Is there any reason that you would recommend the Zachary Systems conversion tool over Quickbook's?

That appears to be more of a Peachtree tool and to your question, it imports lists and transactions, but as I read it, you still need to initially set up a QB Company File. It will probably do what you need.

I have also found the third party tools valuable.
