    We have been using ComputerEase since December of 2014. I am the Accounting Manager. I was on the selection committee that chose ComputerEase. We have two companies, construction and service. We wanted one software platform that could handle the needs of both companies and have capabilities for growth. I oversaw the installation and implementation of the software and I am the software administrator. ComputerEase handles our project management, service management, and all our accounting needs.

    Pros

    The reporting function is phenomenal - between the canned reports, user reports, QTool and ODBC capabilities, most all reporting needs are met. If not, for a nominal fee, ComputerEase will create a custom report that is seamlessly added to the software.

    Though we don’t frequently need them, customer support is always very responsive, and all issues are quickly resolved.

    If the software does not have a function or feature that we need, we can make a request for it to be added to a future update. If it is something that can not be added to an update, ComputerEase will offer suggestions for work arounds, alternative methods or examples of how their other clients accomplish similar tasks.

    Cons

    ComputerEase provides updates to the software frequently, usually once a month. We self-host ComputerEase. The issue is that all users must be logged out of the software to install the update. Unfortunately, all our users do not log out. This causes delays and limits the times that I can do the updates. However, this is not a ComputerEase issue and is internal to our company. If we go to a ComputerEase cloud hosted environment this would not be an issue as updates are automatic.

    Some features are very useful for project management but as a CRM tool, it's underwhelming

    NOT FOR PUBLICATION, JUST FOR BACKGROUND: I have changed companies and industries since I was using ComputerEase. At the time, I was in the construction field, and used CE for CRM functions, sales reporting, financials, and some project management reporting. I worked for Redrock Security and Cabling and reported directly to ownership. My role incorporated sales management and marketing functions.

    Pros

    For project management and some accounting functions, CE is very useful. It was easy to track project expenditures, progress to completion, etc.

    Cons

    As a CRM tool, CE is not a robust enough solution to meet most users' needs. Even in a construction environment, some more meaningful reporting and analytics would have been helpful, as well as more seamless integration with other systems we had in place such as RingCentral, MailChimp, etc. We had to find work arounds and manual solutions for processes for things other solutions can accomplish routinely.

    Accounting program that makes your life easier, hence, you have more time to execute other parts of your job description!

    Pros

    I like the quickness and the ease of use. IT is very easy to navigate. I love how quick it opens and closes and how reports are also generated very quickly.

    Cons

    The only glitch that I found is the complication in the paid versus unpaid invoices. There should be a report that shows you both for reconciliation purposes.

    Computer Ease is a phenomenal tool for any business. It is so customizable that it works for your needs. We use it for everything from inventory to tracking a job and where it was at in the process.

    Cons

    Computer Ease is complex in a way that if you don't actually sit down and have a class you may not know what it can all do.

    It came with several reports that were handy to use. Initial set up support was good. They could import your info, which I would suggest doing.

    Cons

    Expensive support; tedious to update. We changed accounting software because this was more challenging to use than a competitor's on the accounting side.

    Having all of our accounting needs in one place as well as our equipment is a great way for us to make sure that everything is accounted for and everything is documented in the correct place.

    Pros

    This software can replace many things that we had before into one system. We're learning new things it can do all the time, this make it more valuable the more we are learning about it.

    Cons

    Because it has so many things it can do it can take time to figure out and remember where to go. We are still discovering new things all the time that we wish we would have known from the beginning when we got the software.

    FieldEase is an easy to to keep track of hours as a contractor. It makes submitting time cards on time a breeze. I like that I am able to split my daily hours up between jobs.

    Cons

    My only con is that i wish there was an easier way to set up a reminder notification within FieldEase. I also wish the mobile app was more user friendly. Its not bad- just a bit clunky.

    Pros

    ComputerEase provides all the reports that the owner needs and much more for running his business. Also, I am able to provide our accountant with any reports he requests. ComputerEase made it possible for our accountant to interact with our program by providing software and tech support to our accounting firm. Tech support is amazing! They have always been able to solve my problems and answer my questions without hesitation. They really know their product. Also, they all appear to have more than just basic bookkeeping knowledge which really helps when I don't understand something.

    Cons

    1-There is no way to search for a number, dollar amount, etc. Sometimes, you just don't have any more info than a dollar amount or number (invoice, check #, etc).
    2-I don't care for the way credit card purchases are handled. You enter each transaction as an invoice and pay it with the credit card "account". I think our old software had a better way of entering, paying and tracking credit card transactions and statements.

    The ability to upload documents into the system was a great help. Doing payroll in house was not hard to set up. I think that this would be better for larger companies with more jobs rather then smaller companies with a few larger jobs.

    To do pay applications was hard. It had so many things that just didn't apply to our business and it was hard

    Pros

    How the accounting and project management systems integrate with each other is key. Love the payroll system. This is my first time using it and it is awesome. The subcontract module is a great tool and very easy to use. Overall, it is good program for GC's.

    Cons

    No direct export to Excel. Qtools is mediocre at best. It is so cumbersome to use. I have used CE for close to 10 years now. I've recently completed my third system implementation from Quickbooks. Onsite training is so much better than online but entirely too pricey. With regards to training sessions, the amount of time it takes to get one scheduled is way too long. I also feel that at the end of the session, one should be able to accomplish what they were being trained to do.

    Solid accounting program that lets me know how my projects are doing and helps me manage my cash flow.

    Pros

    Really is a great accounting program that handles multi-state payroll, Prevailing wage, and AIA billing. Customizable reports - Qtools are great. Revised estimates, WIP, job cost summary reports are great. Time card app integration works great. It has its shortcomings but I have yet to find anything that is a no brainer for a replacement.

    Cons

    The added PM module leaves you wanting more. should integrate with more third-party apps. Field Ease also leaves you wanting more. The service module is terrible. It has been a while since any substantial updates
