Pros
I love seeing where I'm at and understanding which clients are taking up most of my time. I feel confident that Financial Cents was the best choice for me.
Client auto reminder is excellent and saved my time in chasing the clients to complete tasks , communication with client is made easy. The price is competitive and support is great.
Resolved with the notifications and better abilities to filter down on dashboard views.
Cons
Thus confusing the client before we even get to work on them.
So much wasted time is now a thing of the past.
The fact we have to pay per user. It could get expensive if I hire too many employees.

To good to keep a secret.

Reviewed 2 years ago

It does not take a full time person to keep it up to date. Actually each user keeps their own work up to date and an administrator only jumps in to work on missed due dates.

Pros

Built in videos that walk you through each section of the program.

Cons

We hesitated to write a review because this program is such a boon to our accounting practice we did not want knowledge of it to leak out to other accounting practices.

A valuable tool so nothing will fall through the cracks

Reviewed a year ago

There are clear and helpful instructions to get started, customer service is very responsive and while there are some things that I don't like, I see how they are actually improving the app and expect it to get better.

Pros

It didn't take me long to get started using it once my templates were configured. It's very easy to customize each project for my needs and set it to recur automatically. It has become a valuable tool since the first day I used it with a client project. The workflow view is very helpful and the capacity management feature is useful although not perfect.

Cons

Setting up my templates took a long as the only import option is from a proprietary file format for users to share templates so my assistant had to spend days copying and pasting all of my customized templates into the system. The QBO import is very convenient but it imported projects as separate clients which required some cleaning up, I wish I could select which clients to import. The client portal sounds great in theory but I can't use it as I am used to a completely white-labeled experienced and this portal is ugly, not customizable and I have found no way to customize the text of the emails that are sent to clients. I can't use this until they allow me to customize the text and branding.

Great product for the money

Reviewed a month ago

It's been a great experience and a relief to get some help in my day-to-day workflow.

Pros

Ease of use, easy to read screens, quick learning curve with tons of videos to help you along the way

Cons

Scaling a medium to larger organization will be a big ticket price.

Almost perfect!!

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

The software is cheap, easy to navigate and setup for first time users

Cons

One of my least favorite features is how FC is how much watermarked FC is when it comes to the client side. I need the software I am using to be in the shadows, like behind the scenes when I interact with my clients. Unfortunatlely all emails and communications from me to clients are labelled with FC logoes and texts all over which is not good as my Firm is playing behind the scenes

Practice Management Software without complicated implementation

Reviewed a year ago

For us Financial Cents solved some key pain points: 1. Project management - it allows managers to see what projects are outstanding, which are only partially completed and which are upcoming. It provides confidence that tasks are not following through the cracks. 2. It has allowed us to discuss projects/tasks without having to use email. Instead, we can use the messaging application within the projects. A time saver. 3. It has helped us define our workflows and communicate them to all staff.

Pros

Financial Cents was simple to start using for our firm. There is no complicated setup or onboarding. I had it up and functioning within 30 minutes. There are simple, short training videos that I used to get staff trained. I had staff using it and loving it within the first week.

Cons

The one feature I would love to see is email integration. I have been assured that it is coming!
