In general, I invested about $10,000.00 into this program, training, and Administration (not including my own time).

Worst Experience Ever! - Save your money

09/08/2017

In general, I invested about $10,000.00 into this program, training, and Administration (not including my own time). I got to a point where we wiped the slate clean so we could start over as we were told many of our issues were operator error. I got on the phone with support and informed them of a single contract/project I wanted to enter. After I explained the contract I was again told the program cannot do that. There is a "work around" or it can be sent to the Tech Dept for an additional fee. SAVE YOURSELF THE WASTED MONEY AND TIME!!!! Go with Praesto AE instead.

Pros

I cannot come up with any Pros as we could not get the program to function as we wanted it to. Without being nickeled and dimed to death. All customization seemed to involve additional fee.

Cons

The Program is clunky and counter-intuitive for me. I could not get it to function as I needed it to. This program may work for a firm that only has a single phase of a project, but, dealing in multiple phases seemed beyond the program. That is unless you wanted to use a "work around" or pay additional fee. Bank Transactions cannot be downloaded, so they must be manually entered. Not cool!

BillQuick has made our life easier

20/06/2017

I highly recommend it

Pros

I would definitely say BillQuick has made our life easier. It is very easy to use and handles our time and expense tracking on projects. Integration with QuickBooks works really well and it saves double data entry. Whenever we need any help their customer service has been outstanding.

Cons

Cannot think of anything. We have been using BillQuick for 7 years and whenever there has been an issue with the software BQE has been there to support us

I believe that the program would be great for the right application. Regretfully, i am not the type of business that the product was designed for.

18/05/2017

I would not have bought this product had I known what I do now. I am hopeful that they will be able to provide a solution that is acceptable, and if not, make it right financially with me.

Pros

The trainer was personable and competent. I am waiting for him to get back to me with a workable solution.

Cons

My frustration occurred due to the salesperson not understanding what my criteria was for buying the product. The trainer encountered the reality of the mismatch when tried to adapt their system to my needs.

Pros

It is Available as a stand-alone solution, self-hosted or a cloud service, BillQuick offers comprehensive business accounting, project management and business intelligence in a system flexible enough to support a variety of industries, including construction, architecture, engineering, accounting, consulting, graphic and interior design and more.

Cons

The company could do better job offering a better price for small companies or should cost much just to add one more user.

BillQuick is one of the most user friendly programs I have tried...

20/04/2017

BillQuick is one of the most user friendly programs I have tried. It has taken me a few years to find a program to replace my old system. If something is posted incorrectly it is easy to correct the error, which was a big plus in determining which program I would use. The project managers are delighted to be able to see their projects progress with the click of their mouse. I can't wait to get the budget and allocation functions up and running.

Pros

Very user friendly and click of a button access to project progress

Cons

Cannot think of anything at this time

Great software with excellent technical support!

03/04/2017

We have been using BillQuick for 5 years now. It definitely has made our time & expense tracking and billing easy. The fact that they have a feature rich LEDES export makes our electronic billing smooth. Technical support is very receptive and knowledgeable. Overall, we are extremely happy with billquick and highly recommend it.

Great billing software

30/03/2017

Highly recommended product.

Pros

As a structural engineering consulting practice with numerous projects and clients, the software answers our needs with wonderful organization and flexibility in setting up projects and invoicing. Numerous invoicing templates allow us to satisfy our clients billing requirements to a "T". Technical support is responsive and knowledgeable on all facets of the program.

Cons

The biggest asset, deep flexibility and customization, can take some real time to master. Fortunately, though, technical support is there to take you by the hand and show you how to accomplish what you need to do.
