    It is a nice and efficient also easy to operate and even a less educated can handle and use it and support is good.

    This is very slow and has very less features. When I looked at FAQ's it was not much useful and instead confusing.

    Where to start? Lacking some very basic capabilities and options. Un-intuitive interface. Slow to react and update. Frequent outages and malfunctions. Customer service will make you want to cry or worse - you get the distinct feeling that "we don't give a care" is the company's moto. In three years there hasn't been a single improvement to the interface.

    Good features and easy to use.

    Pros

    Almost everything.

    Cons

    If I was being hyper-critical I suppose I would say the GUI could be a bit prettier. Nevertheless, it is well laid out and intuitive.

    As somebody in my early seventies who has picked up how to use a computer as I go along I find this package indispensable. I did need some help to get accustomed to the system, not surprising in the circumstances.

    Pros

    I have found Arithmo to be a fairly good book keeping system, but feel that some of the functions are not very clearly explained, and not particularly intuitive. Some fuller explanations on the different applications would be useful, and a quicker response time when making queries would be advantageous.

    Pros

    Efficient, reasonably comprehensiv, good price

    Cons

    Response time very slow (usually 24hrs+) , Not enough explanation about some of the functions, FAQ's not at all useful

    Pleasant layout. Fairly intuitive. Has a basic feel, but that is deceptive. It produces really good reports, such as P&L and Balance sheet. It has a full audit trail. The ETB for accountants is excellent.

    Pros

    It is easy to use for customers and the price is fantastic value. The support is excellent. The fact that we, as accountants can log on and use all facilities is very useful.

    Cons

    It has a few quirks, but it seems the new version will iron these out.

    I wish it used the keyboard more. I love TAS Books for that. No mouse waving!

    Arithmo is very good value, user friendly and helps small businesses to keep track of their finances as part of the everyday routine. It also saves money on accountancy

    Pros

    You can use as many or as few of the features as you need for your purposes, and it is easy to adapt them to your own way of recording information ('clients' can become projects, for instance, so you can effectively create cost centres)

    Cons

    It would be great if you could automatically feed information through from income to expenditure rather than input everything twice to create new (clients/suppliers/projects) - sometimes you want to track income and expenditure for the same things

    Find it exceedingly easy to use. I like the layout of the screen as every facility is accessible. It is logically presented.

    Pros

    The page gives you every facility of moving around the whole programme. If there is a problem with the page you are on down the right hand side there are easily understood directions of how to use that particular page.

    Cons

    On the contrary, I do not have any complaints and love using it.

    Compared to many other accounting systems i have used and viewed, this is by far the easiest system to use. As a novive in accounting systems i was able to use it with ease from day one. Tha advantage of having no software to download, install, configure and support on my desktop makes this a BIG PLUS for me as my system is short on memory so having installed and supported at a central point is the way to go!

    Pros

    Ease of use everything about it is designed for simplicity, without looing any critical features.

    Cons

    When i want to make a change to a statment i am so used to using a right mouse click, not a left click.

    I know i am being a little pissy about this but it is the only thing that i can say i mildly dislike.
    But it aint a big issue.

    This is a simple accounting/book-keeping software for the smaller business. It allows you to keep your business books via an online app that you can access from any web browser no matter where you are located. Its good for the sole trader right through to a VAT Registered Limited Company and its so cost effective its almost too good to be true.

    Pros

    On line app
    Someone else takes care of system admin and maintenance.
    Simple

    Cons

    Slightly confusing to get to grips with
    Payment method defaults to cash
