Pros

I love the app and gives me accounting on the go. Helps me track invoices and profits with ease.

AR

Anonymous Reviewer

The ease of use and reputation are by far the greatest part of this product. In addition to this, the range of potential integrations is fantastic.

RC

Ryan C.

Really easy to submit expenses, categorise them and check the progress of you submitted expense - super easy to do all from the app.

HS

Holly S.

Pros

The ability for them to request days off on the app is amazing because I do not have to remember all the days, it comes up while I'm making the schedule.

MH

Michael H.

I have LOVED it every step of the way. I tried out lots of other solutions through online systems to local business management organization offers, and this was by far the BEST and MOST AFFORDABLE.

MW

Mae W.

I love the ease of making schedules and tracking of hours. I also love the fact of when hiring someone I can send them the invite and send them a schedule right away.

BH

Beth H.

Cons

There are no delivery notes/packing slips. They tout a "workaround" but be warned, it's exactly 10 extra clicks so it's really not an option if you need this feature.

FM

Fergus M.

Our main complaint is that Xero stopped doing payroll in 2018, so now you have to pay an additional fee to a payroll processor such as Gusto.

Craig F.

Changing accounting software from Xero is a horrible experience. They make it very difficult to pivot to other software.

CB

Chaz B.

Cons

With applicant messages, there's no way to end the communications/block disqualified applicants so I've had former applicants continually message and harass with no solution from Homebase.

TE

Tasha E.

I don’t like surprises and that happens. That feature alone is my only complaint.

RS

Roxann S.

The only problem I have is once my drivers download the app it can be difficult logging on the first time.
