My general experience with Aqilla has been good. Having never used the software before I have been pleasantly surprised how easy it is to use and how powerful it can be to produce financial reports on demand
Aqilla has been very easy to use since I started using it in June 2019, with minimal training. I really like the fact that you can tailor your own reports on Aqilla so can tailor the reporting to your needs.
I find it slightly confusing how to limit or add permission for users on various areas of the software

There is a lot more to this package which I have not had chance to explore - my experience so far has been frustrating at times when I know I should be able to do things but have trouble to find out how, but on the whole Aqilla seems to be good value for money.
It looks good on screen The easy ability to download information onto excel The ability to open up a second screen
The top tab names, I find I regularly go into the wrong location for items. The help button, it has never brought up the problems I am trying to sort, seems to pick just the first word and give all items with that one word Changing Rough Posted documents to 'Posted', the system does not post into the period the document is already allocated to automatically, with several periods involved you have to Post month by month. Not being able to see the currency value total if more than 1 page, have to download an Excel report for the information.

Overall the relationship is better than what I found when I joined the company - the support desk and consultants are very helpful and try their best to answer our queries
ability to extract reports quickly using Aqilla and Sharperlight
the issues faced in our first year of implementation relating to transactions and effect - sometimes seems too complex

Full accounting of Sales, Purchase & General Ledgers, through to Monthly Management accounts. Budgeting and Trend analysis. KPI's and ad-hoc queries and investigations.
Ease of duplicating repetitive transaction saving time and potential keying errors. Integration with Sharperlight making data import/export a breeze. Continuous product enhancements keeping it current and improving the finance process.
Some features are only progressed through Consultant intervention - as an IT savvy user I'd like to be able to do more.
Likelihood to recommend: 9/10
Good value for a basic reporting tool with integrated AP and expenses which would be perfect for a relatively stable group structure
Good value for money Continuing to innovate Reasonable base funcationality on all the things will need
Doesn't feel 'consumer grade' around expenses Approval hierarchy/workflow is a work round and not robust
