InFocus - a Great Product!

2015-02-03

Pros

This software offered easy conversion from our former software; they were able to bring all of our previous file information forward for project reference.

Cons

I have had some custom reports and invoices designed to match up with our needs, but it is too costly to have all my report requirements customized.

I find the program difficult to maneuver when trying to set up projects and invoice

2017-05-10

Pros

I would like to know more on how to set up a template style that can be imported for each project and then alter from there.

Cons

It takes many clicks to get to move a time ticket to where it needs to be when entered in the wrong location. I wish uploading documents was easier and that I did not have to put on my desk top to move.

Functionality at its Finest

2017-03-20

InFocus also has a built-in reports, but also its own report builder tool if the report you need isn't automatically there you can create it yourself!

Pros

Ease of use, availability of support staff, resolution of issues, suggestion forum Clearview provides

Cons

Export to excel needs manipulated often, if modified the journals will show both versions

Not entirely intuitive, but once you get the hang of the software, it's fine to use.

2017-05-08

Pros

Very easy to do an expense report, and once you get used to the program it's fine to use and you can enter your time quickly.

Cons

If you don't know the quick key commands, there end up being more steps than necessary to log your time.

Not terrible

2017-04-12

However, it was not as user friendly as I would have liked and it lacked the ability to completely customize and build reports and client invoices. It was a good value for money in the sense that it did offer a great deal but it left me wanting more.

Great SAAS accounting solution for an ACEC firm

2018-02-26

All accounting software and data is offsite, no servers or data to worry about locally!

Pros

* Local client install. * Easy to use trouble ticket system when there is an issue

Cons

This is my only real "gripe" about the service.

Project Software Review

2016-11-17

The developer has put a lot of thought and spend a great deal of time in looking at the total scope of the program functionality and how it interacts with real life situations.

Pros

Very forward thinking product that benefits true life occurrences and situations.

Cons

None that I have seen yet. And from what I have seen I do not think it will seen anything derogatory.

Very Easy to use compared to other time sheet systems.

2017-05-08

Pros

The ability to document as much as possible...adding documents..no character limit for comments. also the ability to copy and paste existing information

Cons

Sometimes information is lost if more than one person accesses the time sheet. Also the ability to have more than one time sheet open at the same time and different information showing up on each.

Why I like Clearview accounting software...

2015-02-13

Pros

Whether I need a custom report made quickly or training on a new release item they've just put out, it is comforting to know that I'm always going to be taken care of quickly.

Cons

I'm really happy with Clearview so really don't have anything specific that I don't like.

Recommendations to others considering InFocus

Clearview is a great product and has come a long way over the years. If you are interested in purchasing new accounting software for your company, I would suggest comparing Clearview against a couple other similar products out there. Write down exactly what it is you are looking for and what your budget is, as well as what you don't need or want to see with a new program. Converting over from old software to something new is very challenging and isn't something that is done quickly. I think that accounting software is so important and that it should be considered an investment in your company's future.

Great Software. We don't use all of the functions, but the ones that we do use are great.

2017-05-18

Pros

I loved that we were able to transfer roughly 18 years of data over to this software.

Cons

There are a lot of functions that we do not use in the software, but I understand how important they would be for larger firms. It would be nice to have a scaled down version of this software for smaller firms.

Need to focus that Clearview represents a breed of software that is best described as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). ERP software is distinguished by its ability to deliver an integrated suite of business applications. So InFocus include: Accounting, Job Cost Management, Time and Billing, Resource Planning, Marketing Support, and Business Intelligence (BI).

Clearview Infocus Review

2018-05-10

Pros

The integration between the opportunity (marketing) through proposal to accounting is pretty good.

Cons

This product is on the complicated side & not exactly user friendly. You also have to pay for training with them. There are some unique features to this program that if you don't know them, you can get lost or frustrated. There is not a good user's manual but there are some tutorials for various modules that are pretty good and customer service does get back to you in a timely manner for questions.
