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.
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.

Pros

Technical support is fabulous, both through packaged online help and, on the very few occasions when it has been necessary, direct contact with a technical support representative.
Overall, my experience with Rocket Matter has been very successful in navigating through the website and it is pretty self explanatory which helps when training new employees comes up.
I also love the layout, being able to customize, the drop-down feature helps keep me organized and the page clean.

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.
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.

Cons

It freezes all the time. This is disruptive to my workday.
It defaults to the current date which is slightly annoying when you are entering time for a prior date.
Constant problems with slow service. Accounting feature does not integrate well with QUICKBOOKS.

Decent for expense tracking, but UI could use improvement

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Pretty straightforward layout as far as entering daily time and hours.

Cons

Very clunky UI. A fair amount of time the auto feature fails to work, making it impossible to allocate time to a specific matter.

Best all in one service

Reviewed 6 years ago

With their budget and expense tracking it is easier to see where we are currently sitting, where we can cut cost, and have been able to stick closer to our budgets.

Pros

Having all account info, invoices, budgets, access to banks, profitability and performance reports available at all times in one place and on my phone is amazing. I am never unprepared no matter where I am.

Cons

I've noticed that their is a bit of lag when opening some reports or invoices but they may also be sue to my system.

Time tracking review

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall I am happy when the product does not lock up when I am entering my time.

Pros

Since we only use it for one feature, the thing that I like most about the product is the time tracking feature.

Cons

One thing that I do not like about this software is that at least once per week, it takes a long time to load the customer/client information for which I am trying to track my time. It acts like the client (or any clients for that matter) cannot be found in the drop down arear for the client name.

Support

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

When I have an issue or a problem, and I login and support is logged in right away to shadow me on showing me how to do exactly what it is, I need to do. And most of the support people are very very nice and patient.

Cons

When setting up a new client, I wish there weren’t so many different steps that you had to take to name that client. Because you want a client name you want a client ID and you want a client matter. We don’t go buy a client ID I just wanna be able to put the clients name and say basically with the case is about.

This product delivers...if you want it, it can be done.

Reviewed a year ago

the exec. appreciates the overall business analysis that can be obtained, time keeping is given back to the body of the staff and not the admin. staff, and can be seen and impacted live. project management is a complete task, not just partial tasks here and some in another area. Generally positive...difficult at first because change is hard, but once the benefits are realized, embraced ultimately.

Pros

once full integration is close, one can really see how the product can fully encompass all aspects. full analysis can be achieved if all data is inputted, but only then. if pieces are missing, so is the entire impact. time keeping can be accurate for all the employees...same story, expenses can be fully analyzed, project costing can be fully analyzed...but one must enter all of the data. it replaces most existing processes so it's difficult for some to "move on" so as not to duplicate. there are some glitches, but there usually is.

Cons

there might be too many features...not all businesses have them and while some recognize it, some will try to fill in all the blanks and this can be time wasteful. while there is a lot of "help", "dumbing it down" is never a bad thing. why not make it easy to understand? not everyone is an engineer...admins use it as well so keep it easy to understand for all. this gets more important the bigger the company gets...will support more administrative positions, so use the "kiss" principle-keep it simple st***d. admins will get these tasks delegated to them ultimately so make it easier to understand no matter the degree/education

We are particularly impressed with CORE’s user-friendly, “all in one” design

Reviewed 4 years ago

Our small but rapidly-growing architectural firm was looking for a project management and billing solution. We were particularly impressed with CORE’s user-friendly, “all in one” design.

Pros

It provides us with a single source to record employee time, manage project tasks, budget, invoice and track project performance. We took advantage of the various training packages and technical assistance BQE offers to help us get up-to-speed with CORE in a matter of months. BQE also worked with us to develop a custom invoice that provides our clients with current and past billing information in...

Cons

Everything is working for us and if it does not then that is what support is for. Like any other new software implementation there is a learning curve. We took advantage of the various training packages.
