Pros
I have been SUPER pleased with this product and I simply can't imagine trying to manage my books any other way. I HIGHLY recommend this product to ALL FFL's out there.
The Support also is simply the best. When you have a question or issue, the guys are right on top of it and get you the help you need right away.
Easy to use support is great and personal help is there if you need it.
Cons
Sometimes at first I got stuck I was not use to the interface.
The interface is a little dated and navigating can be difficult for some. That's cosmetic so we would not call that a big hitter.
A simple way to find duplicate contacts to merge them. Duplications are not a fault of FastBound, it is a fault with my POS.

FastBound is the Best Decision I made in 2020

Reviewed 3 years ago

Fastbound is amazing. we were introduced to Fastbound by Celerant. We were looking for an all-inclusive POS, Ecom, Electronic 4473 and Bound Book. The only thing good that came out of our experience with Celerant was Fastbound. In fact, we turned my old retail software company on to Fastbound and told them that the only way we would consider switching back to their system is if they interfaced...

Pros

Fastbound is complete, accurate and easy to use. It automates the entire 4473 process including the filing of 3310's. With FastBound we never miss a Re-Certification Signature and/or Date. Our 4473's are 99.9% accurate at the close of every POS transaction. Additionally, It manages our Gunbook and makes shipping and receiving to outside FFL's a breeze. Their technical support means of communication and team are state-of-the art and is amazing. And, most importantly, in the past 8 months we never had an outage. I can always count on FastBound to be up and ready to go. Every gun shop needs FastBound...

Cons

There are only 4 things I would ask to be improved on and they are simple things. 1. When you are entering a date, the option to tab to the field for the date and use the "Enter" key to enter the current date. Now you have to use a mouse. 2. The ability to carry-over the Drivers License Information from the contact record instead of having to enter it manually on each 4473. 3. A simple way to...

The ONLY way to go!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have been SUPER pleased with this product and I simply can't imagine trying to manage my books any other way. I HIGHLY recommend this product to ALL FFL's out there! Nobody has anything even remotely close to FastBound! The Support also is simply the best. When you have a question or issue, the guys are right on top of it and get you the help you need right away! Super Job!!!

Pros

The whole package handles all aspects of the requirements for a Federal Firearms License holder. You only have two choices in the eyes of ATF when it comes to your Acquisition and Disposition Logs. Manual or Electronic. Signing up with FastBound was an ABSOLUTE no-brainer when I started my business. Having never been an FFL, making sure I was following all the proper procedures in running my business from the paperwork standpoint was paramount. FastBound makes it all SO EASY. It just WORKS and covers all the bases for you, so just in case the day comes when ATF requests an audit of your books, you will have NO WORRIES.

Cons

There is one thing I would like to see in the software. Because the pricing tiers revolve around the number of firearms you process based on the date that you upgrade to a tier, there is no clear indicator how to track the number of firearms you have processed on the former tier you upgraded from. The reason that this is important is because once you reach the 1 year anniversary of a firearm being...

Best FFL Compliance solution in the industry

Reviewed 3 years ago

Trident 1 partnered with FastBound from the beginning because they are the leading software for A&D and Electronic 4473. We have had an overall positive experience with Fastbound, and the knowledge gained from working with their team has been invaluable.

Pros

The software is efficient, simple to use, and comes with a guaranteed ATF compliance. It’s easy for clients to get started, time-saving, and reduces critical compliance errors. They also provide world-class customer support that is unmatched by any of the competition.

Cons

Trident 1 loves the FastBound team and software. Clients consistently express that they wish they had signed up for FastBound sooner.

AWESOME PROGRAM

Reviewed 3 years ago

Outstanding product really glad i switched over.

Pros

Ease of use, data entry and tracking are extremely easy with this product

Cons

Only things i would add, under contacts, under license (forms of ID) for example under Drivers License (DL) you have a field for the DL number and expiration date but because I am in an area with many military it would be helpful to have an additional field for the state abbreviation. This would allow the use to quickly identify the state the license is from.
