Pros

Cons

-Getting you caught up on your books can take a while -Some of the integrations are a little buggy and need re-authorization

Time used: Less than 6 months

Dave Seeman

Great for basic needs, but easily outgrown

2017-10-11

We needed basic bookkeeping done for us for a reasonable price. Bench does that.

Pros

It's easy to get set up and you can rely on your books always getting done one time. There's nothing incredibly special about the product or service, but it meets your basic needs very well for a good price.

Cons

You can't write checks or see your financial data in the way you'd truly like to.

Strong quality but overpriced

2018-03-18

Generates reports required to prepare financial statements for clients.

Pros

Generates timely, accurate, and user friendly reports to meet business needs for financial reporting.

Cons

Customer service can take days to respond for queries. This software is also on the high end of what small businesses may be willing to pay.

Patrick Matos

Awesome tool, great customer service, and affordable!

2018-04-06

Pros

The platform is also easy to use, and the interface makes it really easy to upload documents, download reports, etc.

Cons

One small issue is the capabilities. If you have highly complex bookkeeping needs (a unique situation or business model), this may not work for you. This doesn't matter for 99% of businesses.

No more all-nighters at tax time! Easy to use, great support team, no more headaches.

2017-10-05

Pros

The interface is clean and easy.

Cons

The only thing and I'm splitting hairs is that for more detailed ecommerce analytics, I need to either go to my ecommerce platform and/or pull other data for company performance.

Victoria Edwards

great service for the price

2017-06-09

Great simple accounting service for the price.

Pros

I really liked the responsiveness of my team, and the ease of reviewing my account each month. during our monthly call, which is included with the monthly service fee.

Cons

The only con is that you have to pay more, the more accounts you add, which was not a problem for me initially, but would have been if I added another account in the future.

Love love love the team at Bench and the service it provides!

2017-02-25

Aside from the great personnel, the platform is extremely user friendly and you need only upload all of your statements etc... at the end of each month and the team at Bench organizes it for accounting purposes... profit/loss etc...

Hands off bookkeeping

2018-02-27

Pros

Bench.co takes bookkeeping completely out of your hands. Provide them monthly statements for your bank, credit card, PayPal, etc. and they handle it from there.

Cons

There is no longer the ability to recategorize amounting data on your own.

Olivia Ramsey

Bench has been wonderful in cleaning up my bookkeeping!

2017-08-12

My bookkeeping system was completely overhauled and cleaned up in a matter of days.

Pros

They make it so easy. They are accessible nearly 24-7, very professional, and very knowledgable.

Cons

I wish that they used the accrual method instead of just the cash basis accounting. I will have to use fresh books or some other software to manage my more complex bookkeeping needs.

Solves the Startup Book-keeping Headaches

2017-10-04

All of my book-keeping headaches are gone!

Pros

The web interface is great and pretty much you upload your expense receipts and they will take care of it.

Cons

Occasionally the bank statement transfers stops, then takes a bit of trial and errors for it to work, only happens perhaps once a year or so. No biggie, but could improve it.
