Pros

The next best thing is that for lawyers on a shoestring budget it is affordable and secure because it can be run off the cloud. So I give it two thumbs up for price, accessibility and price.
Overall it is a good product that has the capacity to overtake the market if it can stay affordable, increase security, and improve the ease of transitioning.
The Quickbooks connector is great and the Evernote integration is also a big plus. After reviewing all our other options, Houdini ESQ seemed like the best and least expensive place to start and grow.

Pros

The initialization and customization of the product were important to us. We created a unique, telecommunications application that has been a true innovation and delineating factor in our business.
This is a great platform for businesses of all sizes. Easily search functions, task management and reliable customer service.
However, over all, it is very flexible and a great benefit.

Cons

We tried to use this but were constantly on phone with tech support. When we pointed out deficiencies it was met with a angry responses.
Lack of a functioning document automation/assembly system and lack of quickbooks integration.
In the end, my final verdict on it is this: Houdini was, once, on-par with the other practice management options; but Houdini has failed to keep up with the times, and it shows in many ways.

Cons

Icons seem to look very similar and we often click on the wrong icons.
The HR Department has NO paper files any longer. Everything is on DocuVantage.
Difficult to get software not to open when computer is started.
