Pros

The best I found in this software was the ease of use, it is very friendly to the user, the cost is very good too. Is a very good value for the money.

Manuel D.

For a small company as myself the excellent invoice features has been very helpful and useful.

Duncan W.

Ease of use, simplicity, and reliability. I love how easy it is to access, upload information, and navigate through the site.

We are so very happy with the results from our new ASAP childcare program. From the start, our training associate Shelley Mossman has been a fabulous instructor.

I have recommended this system to every organization I have worked for (past and present) and strongly encourage anyone interested in growing their enrollment and revenue to join the ASAP team.

Cons

We would lose all of that if we switched, so unfortunately we are stuck with having to use this horrible new format.

Steve H.

It is really frustrating to have a client not be able to pay through the invoice, and for this reason, only, I have been considering a new software company.

Tier based pricing from Lite to Premier is a bit confusing. WePay advocates having a Chase bank account for faster processing otherwise fails to integrate.

Cons

The reservations module is terrible. I have no way to book certain spaces for my instructors and have it reflect on the master calendar.

LP

Lindsay P.

The front end of ASAP (what the client / customer sees) is really terrible. We used it for 6 years before switching.

Some problems with our site wrap not following through all navigation instances. Browser compatibility through all browser types has also been a minor issue.

FreshBooks

Great tool - a bit expensive

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

FreshBooks is a great solution for small businesses like me. It allows you to professionally accept credit cards and you get the payments ASAP. It also tracks clients, invoices, hours, etc. in a very convenient way. For a long time, FreshBooks was pretty dated with their interface, but they recently just came out with a new interface that is much better - but it's very different so it's still taking...

Cons

Unfortunately, I'm kind of stuck with it because I've used it for so long that it would be very difficult to get out. Why would I want to get out? The only reason is because of the pricing. It's a bit expensive. The pricing have gone up since I've used it many years ago. They don't grandfather you in like a lot of other solutions if they make changes and it makes me a bit frustrated.
