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

Billing process is easy and intuitive as we can provide clients with a detailed invoicing if required. Ability to manage subcontractors pretty much like our employees is very helpful.

RR

Ryan R.

Each and everyone of them I have interacted over the years have been amazing. All of them in customer service are tremendously helpful in setting up the software for my new firm.

MS

Mairi S.

We are still using Quickbooks for accounting for now. The webinars have been great, the support team has been great, our trainer was great.

MG

Mary G.

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.

Cons

There are times when a question asked gets bumped up and it takes a long time to correct or answer that you lose track of the problem.

AC

Annette C.

The program was often slow and sluggish between screen changes (I have very fast ethernet connection 250mbps DL speed).

Anonymous Reviewer

It was the most expensive waste of time I've experienced in a long while. It's right up there with Yelp advertising.
