Reliable, easy to use, some reporting would like more flexible and different options for reporting

Pros

Going to areas of different functionality is common sense and intuitive. Easy to load files for online payments.

Customer service is good however sometimes an issue is unresolved between local IT management and tech support thru Vadar due to communication obstacles.

Accounting made easy for our small town

2018-04-02

Pros

I can use the accounting to get my reporting done, and the collector can keep track of all our taxpayer's accounts.

Cons

We sometimes have to rely on the developers to help resolve problems, but they are super and can usually do what we need with little fuss.

The ease of the integration has been key to keeping all the town's records balanced

2018-04-03

Makes my job so much easier

Pros

It makes is so easy to access your data from anywhere and being the Town Accountant it is wonderful to able to access the tax collector information and tax title on my own to reconcile accounts.

Cons

I personally don't have a true Con, but our treasurer totally hates the cash book and it isn't user friendly and could really use an overhaul to be more treasurer user friendly.
