Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • I love that I don't ever have to worry about saving receipts & it has taught me to even be more organized!

  • Bench is an amazing product that is in the cloud. I love that i can access my books from anywhere on the go and get a snapshot of how the company is doing week to week.

  • Cons

  • It's a little expensive for a one-person office, so I wish there were more tiers in pricing. But I like the product and will continue to use it, and understand that it costs money for a good product.

  • I would like to have a little more interaction as to tax planning. I understand that it doesnt necessarily fall under bookkeeping. But I would like to be able to have some sort of review.

  • Pros

  • I've been using Core for about a year now. It has many features that have helped our company. Easy to use. Excellent customer service for anything that arises. Highly recommend

  • It is very easy to use and you can learn it quite quickly with help of online webinars, the help pages, and just fishing around in the menus. Very clear and concise.

  • Cons

  • There was a bit of a learning curve in the beginning and training coordination was somewhat challenging but nothing extraordinary.

  • little glitches here and there but the customer support is so fast and responsive and the are willing to fix the software glitches.
