Pros

Maintenance is awesome and worth every penny. Flexibility in use with other programs is absolutely flawless.

BH

Barry H.

For me, the billing and reporting functions are great. Customer support is accessible, knowledgeable and a big help.

AP

Andree P.

I have been using this software for over 15 years and I still love it. With every upgrade they have listened and thoughtfully made great upgrades.

TH

Teri H.

Pros

The great strength of Actionstep is its flexibility and the ability to be quickly adapted as the business requirements change.

RL

Roger L.

The system is a great concept. Great robust software that, if working properly, would allow practitioners to set up what they want by way of workflows and templates for each practice area.

AG

Andrew G.

The search feature is fantastic, I like the website design, I like the customer service.

KD

Kelci D.

Cons

You have to do a reverse update to open and print old charges which is annoying when that info is needed. I print the bill each month so that I have the record handy.

Somewhat uncomfortable with use for flat fees.

RA

Richard A.

It is very difficult to navigate and hard to learn if you are not trained well, and especially if you do not have significant bookkeeping experience.

AR

Anonymous Reviewer

Cons

There are no workable precedents in my field (conveyancing – I also pay $49 for the add on). I found errors in the documents and some documents are out of date (by a number of years - and versions).

CC

Christopher C.

Wonky, outdated interface; poor email integration, and terrible customer support. Clio and Zola Suite both really outshine ActionStep by a mile.

TS

Tyler S.

I do not have an 'accounts' menu. The software has bugs and Actionstep are incapable of fixing them.
