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

Mary G.

Invoicing is easy and we are impressed with professional looking invoice templates that are easy to read. Also it is easy to manage the outstanding accounts receivable.

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.

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

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

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

Valuable software for billing at a law firm

Reviewed 3 years ago

Bill quick is a perfect solution to create invoices and be able to bill many different attorneys on different projects.

Pros

The ability to customize many of its features is great. You can setup and keep track of time associated with various cases, clients, projects. There are so many reports that you can run to keep track of your spending. Able to export invoices to LEDES format. Able to import time from excel spreadsheet.

Cons

It takes some time to learn the software, the tech support team was great in getting me up and running. If you want additional reports they have a custom report group but their cost is a bit high to modify reports. It looks a bit complicated but actually it is easy to use.

Core is the core of our business

Reviewed 2 months ago

Our overall experience with Core has been very good. It is allowing us to run and manage our business far more effectively that before. Also the fact that it is web based has been awesome especially during pandemic work from home instances.

Pros

Project management and billing are our favorite features, we couldn't run our business without them. Core integrates really well with how we setup and manage a project.

Cons

The Allocation feature needs a lot of improvement. It feels like all the information we need is in Core but it is not easy to retrieve or maintain, specifically around dependencies between phases within a project.

BillQuick - A look at one year post conversion

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

BillQuick is a powerful tool in tracking project time and expenses for professional services. We converted from 7 years of Quick Books data. Although the conversion and integration was not a seemless process, and the learning curve was much longer than originally anticipated, we are now tracking project profitability at a much higher level than we ever have before. BillQuick Tech Support is fantastic....

Cons

The software is not as user-friendly as it could be. Some things are overly complicated and require detailed use before you understand the functionality of the software. It could not be more different that QuickBooks, and the transition for us was difficult. Personally, I highly underestimated the learning curve. In the beginning, we were only using BQ for time and expense logging and we maintained...

Running a design practice, what they didn't teach you in architecture school

Reviewed 2 months ago

I check what other apps and services are out there for architects and most are even more overwhelming or offer more than needed for a small practice, or charge much more that it is worth.

Pros

Running a practice and staying financially solvent is key with a way to measure progress with tasks, time and fees. CORE does this and in a way architects can understand since it is designed by architects. However, it tries to cover all variations on running a firm and while appreciable, it can be confusing with too many choices to search and select from. The flexibility is a plus once you reach out to customer service (live24/7/365) and they kindly walk you through a solution.

Cons

It's a bit complex at the onset of setting up the account and projects. You do it often enough, it does become second nature but it takes time and includes some missteps readily corrected by the help system.
