Pros

It has a great interface which makes it feel very easy to use and has a great set of templates you can use from the beginning for various accounting needs.
For a small company as myself the excellent invoice features has been very helpful and useful.
FreshBooks combined with other applications is a great tool. In any case, if you want to create invoices and send it in a split second and then track and monitor its progress, I recommend FreshBooks.

Pros

Overall, my experience is excellent. It helps with tax preparation but most important for keeping a handle on personal finances.
I love how easy it is to usse and manage my finances. I thought it was going to take time to figure out, But it is straight forward and simple to understand.
My overall experience with Quicken is extremely positive as it is a very comprehensive 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

If you get screwed up with an investment account's info it is a pain to get it back on track and correct.
This is so irritating I switched software. If you are looking for a simple tool to just manage your checkbook QUICKEN is NOT it.
There was a lot of trouble importing transactions which is why I stopped using it. It wouldn't import automatically and I had to download from the bank and Paypal and then upload.

Great Software/ Reasonable/ Feature Filled

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

I like the fact that this software is cloud based and doesn't cost me an arm and a leg. Better than Quicken

Cons

Monthly Fee structure. The mobile app could use some work. I don't like the fact that I can't use this offline.

I was new to this software, wish it was a little more user friendly.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Organizing some data we needed for our organization.

Pros

Some of the category features were very simplistic, it made the ease of us very practical even when I couldn't fully understand the functions.

Cons

The ability to fully understand it's functions. I'm new to using software as such outside of Quicken, so learning it was a little difficult.

Good accounting product to use for small businesses

Reviewed 5 years ago

It helps me in doing some of my accounting work and this relives my stress when it comes to accounting.

Pros

What I like most about this software is that it is fairly easy to use. Once you open it, you can begin using it within a very short time period. Most of the functions are easy to use.

Cons

The functionality is not the best. I have used other software products, such as, Quicken, and in my opinion, this product is not as functional.

Freshbooks Is Great

Reviewed 4 years ago

My experience has been really great. It is great that it is online and the software gets updated and improved all the time. It is heads and shoulders better than the Quicken system I was using before. Probably the best feature of Freshbooks is the really excellent customer service. One call and a rep picks up the phone right away!

Pros

The logic of the system and the ease of producing reports.

Cons

That it did not accept an electronic list of transactions from my credit card.
