Pros

The software is good, the API and connetivity is good, the new catalog upgrade will be very helpful for us. And the support team is EXCELLENT.
In general is pretty good, easy to search the clients and have an overview of the clients.
I love the accessibility and ease of using the software.

Pros

It has a great interface and the best part is the design of the invoices is crisp, clean and exactly how you want it. Their customer service is SPOT ON.
Having a clean, organized, and beautiful interface instills confidence in our brand -- and we're obsessed with it.
Always amazing, willing to help, and they talk to me like a human being. Definitely one of my favorite companies out there.

Cons

We have been a customer of theirs for over three years and its so disappointing to feel ripped off this way.
Charged us thousands of dollars for collecting on a single bill.
M missing some tooltips that would guide me through the software which such business impact.

Cons

I was introduced to Blinksale about 6 months in and my only regret is not having used it sooner. A must for freelancers and small business owners new and old.
The one complaint I had was that you couldn't reorder lines in an invoice or estimate. But, after a quick chat response w Patrick, I felt heard & within a couple of months, that feature was added.
Blinksale has helped me manage my invoices and payments so much more than I thought it would. Running a small business on your own can be very difficult.

Blinksale

Saved me time and saved me headaches

Reviewed 6 years ago

Blinksale has been great! I have a monthly maintenance contract and before Blinksale I had to remember to go in each month and manually send out the invoice, but Blinksale has a recurring invoice feature that I was able to setup to automatically send out a new invoice every month. It's been great!
