Pros

I love the ease of use and the ability to always have access to documents even after they are deleted.
As a sole practitioner I need software that helps keeping my files and billing organized. I have used Smokeball for a few years now and I really appreciate the ease of use and friendly, helpful staff.
Now I completely love that there are a lot of components to it. I absolutely love that SB is integrated with Outlook to save emails right to the client matter, this way I never forget to save them.

Pros

I love everything about the software. It is easy to navigate and if you are unsure of where to locate certain things, their customer service support is excellent; even assisting after hours.
The people who run it genuinely care about the quality - and it shows. It's a well-designed product that just keeps getting better.
The support team is great and very helpful. They are usually available to assist me by phone if I need it and have always responded well to my feedback.

Cons

Missing deadlines while using this program are hard to come by.
Sometimes It can be slow to operate and the interface annoying.
Lack of notification about the messages inside the network.

Cons

Some of the features seems to be irreversible, which makes error correction difficult and sometimes impossible.
The set up of accounts can be confusing to clients.
Also, errors cannot be simply deleted but additional correcting entries are required. That is the nature of a database.
