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.
For a small company as myself the excellent invoice features has been very helpful and useful.
Ease of use, simplicity, and reliability. I love how easy it is to access, upload information, and navigate through the site.

Pros

I have had very good programming experience with this solution. The view and layout is nice and comfortable for when you have a lot to work with.
I love all of the out of the box capabilities, but also love how quickly you can add in great tools from others (like custom controls).
What I always loved about Visual Studio is it had an IDE for so many different languages and projects like Win32, WPF, Xamarin, Unity, Cordoba plus so much more in one product.

Cons

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

Before it didn't support python, and I write code in python, and I used to hate VS for this, but now with the new version of V2017 and VS2019. This problem is catered for.
Often the launch of the application is very slow, and due to bad logs, it can be difficult for me to find the problem that has arisen.
Beginners will definitely be intimidated by how hard learning everything is.
