Ideal Accounting solution for small businesses

2018-12-10

We can quickly see the monthly results of our business activities and make corrections in our business model much quicker than we were when we posted to QuickBooks and submitted the results to our account after the close of the quarter.

Pros

We had been planning to either go with QuickBooks Enterprise or Go Daddy Accounting for our new eCommerce business.

Cons

We would like to see a checklist added to Bookly to ensure we are consistently entering the required data for each aspect of our business each and every month.

Bookly is huge timesaver!

2017-02-18

Although the income statement can be exported to Excel there is no functionality to break the data out by month --- would like to see this become available.

Pros

Ease of use. Huge timesaver compared to Quickbooks.

Cons

Very limited reporting functionality.

Not for everyone. Software and Support are excellent, but not geared to my business needs.

2018-06-21

First, it's not only software, there is a person at the company that is assigned to you and knowledgable about your account. It helped me to get on top of my finances and get them organized.

Pros

The software and communications process was easy.

Cons

That second username triggered all my lined accounts to be unlinked and auto-payments stopped.

Value is worth the cost

2017-03-01

Bookly's accounting software isn't as high speed as as quickbooks.

Pros

It is simple and user friendly.

Cons

And the limited amount of reports the software is able to generate.

Recommendations to others considering KPMG Spark

I'd like to see more functionality in the "Reports" section. I'd like to be able to create a budget as well as compare actual vs the budget. A statement of cash flow would also be a useful report. Additionally I'd like to see a better way to upload files for assets and/or liabilities. My vision would be to not utilize dropbox to store loan documents and/or purchase agreements for assets. Ideally there should be a clean way to organize it within the Bookly software, so if I get assigned another Bookkeeper, or if I want to add a collaborator to log into my account all the source documents are available within the Bookly software. Finally I'd like to be able to make "sub categories" when categorizing transactions. For example Vehicle Expense is a category and Gas/Fuel would be a sub.

Great Graphics

2017-05-31

Fabulous bookkeeping service!

Pros

I really love how easy it is to know what's going on with my accounts, and outstanding invoices. The graphics are fabulous and my favorite feature by far!

Cons

Some things aren't as intuitive as I would hope but they do seem to be getting better each week, so there must be a great tech team at work continually designing because each month the features seem to improve.

I travel for a living and Bookly has made running my business bookeeping accounting easier.

2018-01-23

Switching over to Bookly allowed me to gain more control over the creative part of my business because I don't have to work hard at the books or put it off until later. My accounts are integrated to upload automatically.

Pros

I can get the reports I need and if I have questions I can have quick access to knowledgeable staff that is eager to help.

Cons

There are elements of QuickBooks that I miss like having an app. What I realize I get without the app is made up for in customer service and staff access.

Pros

Also it helped us send out invoices easily so we can get paid.

Cons

The fact that they had 3 plans made it a little hard to pick the right one, maybe I am just too indecisive.

It has been helpful to have consistent bookkeeping that I don't need to worry about.

2018-07-26

Peace of mind.

Pros

It's very user-friendly and easy to pull up reports that I want.

Cons

Customer service is rarely quick to respond and I often have to email a couple times to get a response if they don't respond immediately. My accountant got my taxes done but he didn't ask any questions to help me get the best return and/or write offs/depreciation. I don't know these details so being able to connect with him would be more helpful. I won't do my taxes through Bookly again.

Awesome Accounting for Small Business

2019-01-04

I love KPMG Spark, it makes doing a mundane job that you don't want to do easier, faster and most of all accurate!

Pros

The projects feature that was recently added allows a user to break down the financial data for a specific project or cost center.

Cons

The linking of accounts is good too, but when I change the password (maybe because I've been prompted to) I have to go in to the software to relink it - not that it's a big deal, but my bank makes us change our login every 90 days.
