Wonderful support

Reviewed 6 years ago

Advanced offer more than just software, they have become a huge part of our business with ongoing support advice and customisation of our systems.

Pros

Ongoing customisation is included for most requests. The support team are superb at delivering changes quickly. For the price we pay, we are always amazed at how they can offer the service and functionality that they do.

Cons

The system can be complicated to begin with and needs to be configured carefully.

Superb customer service

Reviewed 6 years ago

Overall we have been happy with the software in the knowledge that we will always receive the back up we need when we are struggling with something. Compared to other software we've used in the past (quickbooks) it isn't as easy for staff who aren't account savvy to use but we appreciate that from an accountancy point of view it is preferable and it has forced us into some better habits in our book keeping.

Pros

Cloud based is great. The fact that we dovetail this system with our business accountancy service feels very streamlined and 'energy' effective. As I've said, it has forced us into better book keeping habits. It it fairly intuitive to use.

Cons

For a small business with good but not specialist accounting staff it can be unforgiving when errors are made and a bit more complex than some packages.

Accounts at the touch of a Button

Reviewed 6 years ago

As a small business, Central Accounting has enabled me to monitor our business's financial activity quickly and easily with the press of a few buttons which in turn has helped to facilitate some of the decision making throughout the financial year. While the nature of the business has not required us to use the extensive functionality of the Central Accounting software, it is easy to see the potential...

Pros

The ability to get a quick overview of the companies situation

Great customer service

Reviewed 3 years ago

Our implementation onto this new system has been a long one and we are now moving other parts of the business onto the same system. The way that the system flows is very easy and if we have found issues or not been able to do something then the customer support team have been very helpful and have looked into what can either be taught out or changed.

Pros

The general processes are easy to use, the flow for the system is good and it has saved time for our production to despatch.

Cons

Our Company and the way we run has made it difficult to use some of the generic parts of the software but where we have found issues advanced have tried and succeeded in most cases to help us.
