Pros

Maintenance is awesome and worth every penny. Flexibility in use with other programs is absolutely flawless.
For me, the billing and reporting functions are great. Customer support is accessible, knowledgeable and a big help.
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.

Pros

It is cloud-based, super user friendly (everyone's learning curve has been quite small), supports electronic billing, and gets the job done effectively and efficiently.
I like the program and love the support staff. I love a secure platform for my records.
This has been a real boon to the practice and I am very happy with this product. The more I dig in the more I realize how helpful this program is to analyze our overall productivity.

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.
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

Sometimes I lost my last entrance and confused it one to the next one, repeating info.
Limited features, no spanish version. Tarif module is limitaed.
Would prefer a report that is more customizable for columns to be displayed. Reports being printed are too limited in presentation.
