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.

Cheap and nasty

Cons

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.

Arithmo Online Accounting Solution

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.

Arithmo Online? Excellent!

Very good package, easy to use.

Pros

Knowing that the information I put in is in the format my accountancy firm can use.

Cons

Find the Calendar irritating (it reverts to today's date all the time).

March 2011

We are a small farming business but our income comes mainly from a busy self catering poperty

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

Simplicity

Cons

Nothing

March 2011

Good, but could be better

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

Arithmo accounting package

Pros

Easy to use and understand. The reports make it quick and easy to see how the business is doing.
Being an on-line package means no backups or updates to worry about.

Cons

Nothing really.

Arithmo - Online

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

Clear and easy to use. Simple wording.

Pros

Easy to use. Simple and very inexpensive.
Easy to generate reports.
Fairly flexible.

Cons

No specific way to collate mileage expenses.
You can add to but not delete headings.
Register for a webinar and you may or may not be contacted as promised!

Great for small businesses

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

Accounting Software Review

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.

Great Accounting App

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.

ARITHMO - easier than you think

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
