Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • Accessible from everywhere and very user friendly with great interface

  • I love the fact that I can easily extract data. I also like that I can setup account restrictions and distributions to make sure data is correct and accurate, not to mention it saves time!

  • Cons

  • Very expensive. Annual cost has gotten to the point where it almost matches what it would cost us to implement another software suite entirely.

  • The only big drawback with Financial Edge has been cost. The initial install and annual maintenance are a hefty price for a nonprofit struggling to serve its constituents.

  • Pros

  • This is a great out of the box software. Pretty intuitive and easy to use for a small business. I've used it in multiple small companies and it's always easy and the customer service is great.

  • love the non-profit features super easy to navigate - very user friendly many more features that are helpful too

  • Cons

  • I don't have really anything bad to say about this program, the only thing is the search engine which can use a lot of work to make it work fluently.

  • I wish there was a better and easier way to customize reports. Generating reports is easy and simply in Quickbooks, but I just wish there was more customization available.
